Christopher Ecclestone is the Doctor

The DV'Ds are released as "vanilla" meaning no extras. But that does not detract from the overall standard of this release. The Dalek story obviously stole the show for me when it was first aired, and I still get that buzz when it starts to talk in the darkness of the cage. Christopher's performance as the Doctor is truly brought to life in this episode. The Aliens in the earlier episodes, the Slitheen are some of the most impressive of the series history, and the amalgamation of Live action and CGI is almost seemless. Hey were talking about the BBC here. For this reason I say go on buy it, you won't regret spending your hard earned cash, I personally have had hours of fun watching this with my family - the kids and I have thoroughly enjoyed the togetherness that this programme brings.

Exterminate the Doctor!!!

"Doctor?The Doctor? Exterminate! Exterminate!"

The first two parter works well, and although its pace is slower, it's still thoroughly entertaining.
Chris Eccleston really brings the Dalek episode to life, giving probably his most charged performance ever, ably, as ever, assisted by Billie Piper.

World War Three is as good, if not better as my greatest ever favourite, Inferno (which I have only seen once, a few years ago). But the others, only average.

Cracks Appear

Dalek of course is a quality piece of work, its just a shame therefore that its partnered with AoL and WWIII which first showed the major cracks inherent in RTDs vision for the show

Doctor Who - Series 1: Volume 2

Aliens of London/World War III - A poor two-part story with a rather run-of-the-mill plot of aliens taking over the world.

Dalek - Much improved and in my opinion the best of the series.
