The Survivors #JAISAT

The Daleks Episode 2

I will not hide the fact that I am quite fond of this story but it does have a multitude of flaws.

My Thoughts:

Hartnell is still being a bit of a git though he is mellowing. Or perhaps he has not had a chance at gitness this episode?

I wonder if Jessica will spot the boom mike shadows or notice the missed lines and fluffs! I must say, however, that the Daleks do look amazing. So new and menacing. The Dalek City is also a joy of design and the control room pulse still sends a shiver down my spine.

Jessica’s Thoughts:

I liked it in black and white... I could imagine the colour of the Daleks.What purpose does this episode really have? Still really confused about this episode... need to do some thinking...

So there you have it, Drama is lost on the young… or maybe they can spot filler? I actually think the episode is quite expository and a far cry from the corridor jogging yet to come…

I have been expanding on the rules for this experiment. Jessica can miss a night out but if we go two nights in a row without an episode then the experiment will fail. I expect tears when we get the the recons…which I intend to watch in full!
