Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks – SF Debris

The newly regenerated Doctor must convince the humans of Vulcan that the Daleks that they each seek to use towards their own ends will inevitably destroy them all. Humans are dumb like that.

About SF Debris


  1. Snorgatch Pandalume

    I saw this in the theater when it was released a month ago, and I have to say, yeah, the animation on the human characters is sometimes underwhelming (it reminds me a lot of Archer), but the Daleks look cool and menacing and the story is just great! It’s nice to see a piece of lost Dr. Who history resurrected.

  2. You didn’t show the part where the Doctor told those Vulcans that they were pointy-eared green-blooded sons of bitches. That was always my favorite.

  3. Wow! This sounds like one of the most amazing of all the early classic Who episodes. So much so that now I guess I need to make a wish list of Must Own Who media with this animated restoration topping the list. Definitely seems like a must-study for storytelling! I think this is my first time commenting on your stuff, but man, SF Debris you are probably one of the most amazing reviewers ever. I hope you do more stuff like the Dune miniseries as well, as being somewhat self-contained they’re easier to watch than some of the other things you do — I feel like Doctor Who is the exception because you don’t ever need to watch from season 1 onward to start understanding and loving Who, that’s the beauty of it. I started with Tom Baker, I know people who started with Eccleston or even Matt Smith and yet we all are Whovians. Anyway, keep up the great work no matter what you decide to review, you’re one of my favs!

  4. Seems to be a plot they keep going back to (Victory of the Daleks).

    Much of what we think of as intrinsic to the character of The Doctor comes from Troughton. The Doctor acting the fool to get people to underestimate him, being anti-authoritarian, etc.,
