The Daleks are back as Polly and Ben soon find out In tonight's new adventure (1966)

[edit]

EVENTS move too fast for the Tardis travellers to puzzle long over the apparent change in Dr. Who—for in today's episode 5.50 they face the greatest and most indestructible enemy—the Daleks. Other menaces such as the War Machines, the blonde Drahavians, and the ant-beetle Zarbis have all been overcome—but not the Daleks.

Many times in the past the Doctor has appeared to be the victor, to have destroyed the Daleks for ever, but the power of evil they represent has proved too strong for them to perish entirely. They always return more terrible than before and pledged to the Dalek law which says that all human beings must be ex-ter-min-ated.'

In this new six-part adventure set on the planet Vulcan, a colony of Earth, the Daleks emerge in a new guise. They are supposedly obedient and servile to their masters on Vulcan. But the Doctor knows the Daleks and realises their potential threat. He senses treachery and danger. But will the leaders of the planet heed his warnings?

Patrick Troughton, well known to children viewers for his role as Paul of Tarsus, appears in this serial as the new Dr. Who. Bernard Archard, who played Colonel Pinto in the Spycatcher series, appears as Bragen, Chief of Security in the colony.

The voices of the Daleks are again spoken by Peter Hawkins who has recorded between 800 and 900 television programmes. And Christopher Barry, who was responsible for bringing to the screen the first Daleks, returns to direct the new adventure.
