The Chase:
"We must face the facts — the Daleks are closing in on us."

...and they are closing in on the Doctor in a chase through both the Universe and through time itself! For having created their own time machine, the Daleks are able to pursue the TARDIS from the planet of Aridius, on to the Empire State Building in 1966, on to the Marie Celeste in 1872 and even on into a haunted house within someone's nightmare!

Recognising that he must force a resolution to this desperate chase through time, the scene is set for a confrontation between the Time Lord and his most feared enemy on the jungle planet of Mechanus...

Originally transmitted 22 May - 26 June 1965, this 6 part adventure is released for the first time on BBC Video, in this unique souvenir tin, marking the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who.

Remembrance of the Daleks:
"Doctor, my men have just put three highly explosive grenades into a confined area. Nothing remotely human could have survived that."

But as the Doctor informs Group Captain Gilmore, the hostile agressor which has already killed one of his men is not remotely human. For London in 1963 is to be the alloted place and time for a further encounter between the Doctor and his most feared enemy — the Daleks.

Accompanied by a streetwise teenager from the 1980's called Ace, the Doctor must prevent the Daleks from capturing the Hand of Omega — the key to control of time. But for this crucial encounter the Daleks pose a doubly sinister threat, for the Hand of Omega is sought by two opposed Dalek factions — the Renegade Daleks and the Imperial Daleks. Why have the Daleks splintered into these two factions and what, or who, is controlling them? These are the questions the Doctor must solve if he is to retain control of time itself...

Originally transmitted 5 - 26 October 1988, this 4 part adventure is released for the first time on BBC Video, in this unique souvenir tin, marking the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who.

Note:  Unusually, the outer packaging was imported from the UK and simply had Australian rating stickers slapped over the UK certification printed on the tin. However, the videotapes inside were manufactured and duplicated in Australia — this being the case, it technically counts as a separate Australian release.

Cover blurb:
Of all of Doctor Who's adversaries throughout time and space, none have been as terrifying — or as popular with fans — as the Dalek, genetically altered creatures encased in mobile fighting machines. This superb compilation features two of Doctor Who's most legendary Dalek adventures, presented in a Limited Edition set.

The Chase
This vintage six-episode adventure stars William Hartnell as the Doctor. Using his new Time/Space Visualiser, the Doctor learns the Daleks are pursuing him in a time machine of their own design. The two craft commence of a frantic chase through the Cosmos.

Remembrance of the Daleks
This is the historic last appearance of the Daleks, a four-episode story starring Sylvester McCoy as the Doctor. The Doctor goes back in time 25 years, to Coal Hill Secondary School, where an army group is investigating hostile aliens. The Doctor discovers they are White Imperial Daleks, searching for the Hand of Omega, a remote stellar manipulator left by the first Doctor.
