In the Beginning...

This is a rather fun re-release of the very first Dalek story. Unlike the other DVDs in the Monster Collection set, this DVD puts more focus on the Classic Series story rather than the new series episode, since 'The Daleks' is almost 3 hours long, while 'Asylum of the Daleks' is just 50 minutes. This means that 'The Daleks' becomes the main feature, while 'Asylum of the Daleks' feels more like a bonus feature.

Whilst this may slightly discourage buyers who are more interested in the new series, this is a rather appealing way to celebrate the Daleks' own 50th Anniversary, as we revisit the story that both introduced the Doctors' most iconic enemies and secured the show's future. Whilst it would have been nice to have some accompanying special features, this DVD is an appropriate release for Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary.
