One of the finest stories of the classic Doctor Who age, Genesis Of The Daleks finds Tom Baker at his peak in the lead role, and ultimately facing one of the most significant moral dilemmas of his era as the Time Lord. That’s alongside the small matter of his most infamous enemies.
This is the adventure that goes right back to the roots of the Daleks, from their humble beginnings to the point where they become the Doctor’s most fearsome foes. Across the six episodes, we find that the Doctor has been sent to the planet Skaro, where he discovers the evil genius Davros, who is about to fully unleash his deadliest creations into the universe. Accompanied by Harry and Sarry, The Doctor also finds himself stuck in the middle of an ongoing war between the Thals and The Kaleds, in a story packed with danger and adventure.
It’s also grounded in the kind of excellent storytelling that has frequently allowed classic Doctor Who to overcome its low budget roots. And Genesis Of The Daleks is one of the finest examples of just how it manages it. Thanks to a tightly woven script, and a strong cast led by Tom Baker at his finest in the lead role, Genesis Of The Daleks is rightly regarded as one of the best Doctor Who stories of all time. It really isn’t hard to see why.–Simon Brew

The BBC’s veteran time-traveling sci-fi hero returns via a smart 21st-century update, one whose adventurous plot lines and super-charged visuals inspired this equally ambitious musical score anthology (covering seasons one and two, as well as two extended specials) by Murray Gold. The composer’s sinewy, synth-charged update of Ron Grainer’s original ’60s series theme is a study in spooky dramatics that’s also treated to a more expansive, album-closing arrangement, while “Westminster Bridge” and “Slitheen” revel in muscular evocations of spy music past that recall Michael Giacchino’s similar tongue-in-cheek romps for The Incredibles. From there, Gold’s music steadily expands in scale and scope, often achieving big-screen dimensions via the cinematic sweep of “Boom Town Suite”/”I’m Coming to Get You,” the minimalist-tinged rhythms of “Clockwork Tardis,” or the overt piano-and-orchestra melancholy of “Rose’s Theme.” Completing the saga’s musical makeover are a pair of ballads sung by the Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon–the effusive pop charmer “Song For Ten” and the more retro-R&B-quirky “Love Don’t Roam.” –Jerry McCulley
Many years ago, the Daleks sent out thousands of egg-shaped Progenitors containing the genetic coding of the race, so that new Daleks could be created whenever necessary. One of these Progenitors was found in war-torn England during the Second World War and transported to a Dalek ship.However, because the Daleks that found it had been genetically modified by their creator Davros, using his own DNA, the Progenitor did not acknowledge them as pure Daleks, until the Doctor identified them as such and the Progenitor created a new race of powerful Daleks as a result. These Daleks were led by the white-cased Supreme, the red-coloured Drones, the enigmatically titled yellow cased Eternal, blue cased Strategists and orange Scientists.This fully functional radio controlled 13î Dalek Drone includes a handset with ïDual StickÍ movement control, 10 Dalek phrases and exterminator gun sound effect, activated using the five button sound selector. Also includes an illuminated eye, poseable gun and arm.Ages 5+
