Not one of the best stories - the premise is that Humans, Daleks and Exxilons have to work together after a power shortage leading to Daleks with Machines gun mounts on their guns, they also have to get a cure to a intergalatic plague off the planet. Nation shows his boredom of writing for the Daleks by having them as minor character in this story they seem to bumble along as a comedy villain in this story. It has the 'Key To Marinus' task element in the last episode that by now Terry Nation was fond of throwing into his stories. Think this dvd has more appeal to the hardened fans as the elongated story where everything is throw just to get the Daleks back on screen might bore the fans on the new series. There is very little to be said about this story in the bonus features also no one saw how a certain George Lucas ripped off the Exxilons and created a character called the Sandmen.
- Having fully watched the story i was suprised how good it was - it has an element of humour to the story. Daleks having a nervous breakdown and shooting mini targets of the Tardis - really funny in what could have been a really boring story but was an entertaining yarn that has gone up in my estimations.
