The Daleks Episode 5
This episode feels so much like filler. Hartnell is barely in it and we seem to spend ages deciding to do the obvious. It is notable for the scene where Ian baits Alydon into violence. Our heroes really are a bit soddish through and through! One thing I haven't commented on yet that I truly adore about this story is the outstanding score. The beats when the protagonists discover the loss of the fluid link is brilliant sounding like a guillotine dropping onto a double bass. Magical.
I loved this episode right from the start. I loved the Thals (they don't fight?) I loved the arguments and the way Barbara's trousers are nearly see through.I need to seriously think about this whole Doctor Who thing though....
