Two action thrilling tales

This tin, like the one issued in 1993 contains two great Dalek tales, both of which are action packed and thrilling and one of which is a 6-part story on one tape. The stories in this set are Planet of the Daleks and Revelation of the Daleks.

Planet concludes the theme, which began in Frontier in Space. The Doctor aids the Thals in their suicide to destroy the Daleks on the planet Spiridon where there are 10,000 of the creatures. Episode Three is in black and white. This story features appearances by occasional Who actors Bernard Horsfall, Prentis Hancock plus ‘Allo ‘Allo’s Hilary Minster.

Revelation’s plot is about the Doctor landing on the planet Necros, where the Tranquil Repose keeps dead millionaires and politicians in suspended animation. Also, Davros, posing as the Great Healer turns dead people into Daleks and the rest into food. This story is probably Colin Baker’s best story as the Doctor. It features guest appearances by Clive Swift (Richard, Hyacinth Bucket’s husband in Keeping Up Appearances), City of Death’s Eleanor Bron, Alexei Sayle and William Gaunt.

In my opinion, Revelation is the better of the two. These 2 Dalek adventures are an ideal addition to any fan’s collection.
