Doctor Who Serial 060 – Day of the Daleks

Synopsis: Jon Pertwee’s Doctor faces his first Dalek invasion. There’s a man who is organizing a peace conference. An assassination attempt is made. The failed assassin vanished. The Doctor is called.

The Doctor feels, the smartest course of action would be to stay at the haunted house and drink some wine.

I knew there was a reason I liked Doctor Who. Jo and The Doctor relax and suddenly are faced with a break in by a guerrilla army. They discover that this militia is a group of rebels who are revolting against a Dalek invasion in the 22nd century. The Daleks are using a lower species (who look like Klingons) to be their pawns in this war against the Humans.

It’s odd because we know in the 22nd century Klingons will make their way to Earth, leading to an early launch of the USS Enterprise NX-01.  In addition, the future rebels use a time machine that looks conspicuously like a tricorder. I’m pretty sure that this is a Star Trek crossover.

We also find The Doctor fighting a Dalek invasion in the 22nd century. Something that happened once before. It make me wonder if The Doctor is interfering with events that he once fixed already. I do wonder if this is something that was planned before or not.

Overall, this wasn’t the greatest episode. It was silly, but not that exciting, most of the action involved The Doctor with his feet up. Also compared to Into The Dalek which aired a two days ago, it falls on its face. But we’re not at the point where we’re reviewing Capaldi episodes. that’ll have to wait. In the meantime… here’s a clip from The Two Doctors.
