Episode 011 – “The Rescue”

So the saga of the Daleks comes to an end. They’ve been defeated, and will never, ever, ever return! Honest!


What to say about this episode? It’s really fairly dull and slow, despite the fact that a lot of things happen, not the least of which is an odd romantic moment between Barbara and a Thall. It’s a bit strange, though at least it might explain her pants in the previous episode.

The final scenes, showing the Thalls planning to rebuild Skaro, work decently well, though. It’s also nice to have a few hints about the Doctor and Susan’s backstory.

Overall, though, it’s a merely ok ending to a merely ok story that could and should have been much more.

Next time: “The Edge of Destruction”
