4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Who gets violent? - Special Edition Extras compared to 2003 DVD release March 24 2012
By Happy Reader - Published on Amazon.com
The TARDIS inexplicably takes the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough to the planet Earth, present-day (meaning 1984) London, England to be exact. But it's a trap set up by the Daleks.

Lots of things are going on. The Daleks want to free Davros from his suspended animation prison ship, orbiting Earth (in the future, but Daleks can travel time, too). (Davros had been arrested after losing to the Doctor, played by Tom Baker, in Doctor Who: Destiny of the Daleks (Story 104).)

Throughout time, the Daleks have had a love-hate relationship with their insane creator, but right now they need Davros. The Movellans, a race of androids, have created a virus that kills Daleks, so the Daleks need Davros to find a cure.

That's in the future. In the current day, the Daleks create doppleganger human androids, to take over powerful positions on Earth. In addition, they plan to duplicate the Doctor and his companions and use them to assassinate the Gallifreyan High Council, hence the trap. But what if you create a robot duplicate so good at acting human that it can fool other humans, and then it continues on to start to feel human itself?

This is not a favorite episode but it's not a terrible one, either. The part I most do not appreciate is when the Doctor picks up a gun and shoots an android doppleganger. [A Comment pointed out that I am incorrect; It is a mutant Dalek that Dr Who shoots.] That just isn't the classic doctor I know and love. Tegan calls him on this violence, and the Doctor muses, "It seems I must mend my ways". On the other hand, the Doctor has the chance to kill Davros, ending his terrorizing once and for all, but cannot do it.

"The Resurrection of the Daleks" was first issued in DVD in 2003 in the U.S. This review is of the "Special Edition" issued 2012. It will have all the extras of the 2003 DVD release, plus a few more. The episode has digitally remastered picture and sound. According to a British website, here's what will be on the two discs included in this Special Edition:

Disc 1:
1. This has the episode in the originally aired 2-part version. Although written and recorded as four standard length episodes, this story was re-edited prior to transmission into two double-length episodes in order to allow more coverage for the Winter Olympics.
1. Audio Commentary 1 (this is a new commentary track). Commentary is by Terry Molloy (who plays Davros), Eric Saward (writer) and Peter Wragg (visual effects designer). Nicholas Pegg is the moderator.
2. Casting Far and Wide (new). This short, produced in 2011, is moderated by British comedian Toby Hadoke. He interviews Roger Davenport (who played a trooper), Del Henney (who played Colonel Archer), Leslie Grantham (Kiston), Jim Findlay (Mercer) and William Sleigh (Galloway). They talk about this episode in specific and their careers in general.
3. "On Location", from the 2003 DVD. This is a behind-the-scenes type interview with Eric Saward (script editor), Matthew Robinson (director) and John Nathan-Turner (Producer)
4. Extended and Deleted Scenes.
5. "Breakfast Time", from the 2003 DVD. "Breakfast Time" was a BBC morning magazine show. Two episodes are featured. In the first, Brian Hodgson and Malcolm Clark show how music was used to compliment the action. In the second show, John Nathan-Turner (producer) and Janet Fielding (who played Tegan) talk about the Tegan character.
6. BBC 1 Trailer, from the 2003 DVD
7. "The Last Dalek" (new). This is a black & white silent 8mm home movie, taken by Tony Cornell in 1967. Cornell worked at Ealing Film Studios, and took in his camera one day. It happens to be a day that they were filming the final Dalek battle scenes from the episode "The Evil of the Daleks". (This episode is now missing.) Original special effects designers Michaeljohn Harris and Peter Day provide commentary during the film.
8. TARDIS Cam no.4, from the 2003 DVD
9. Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound Mix. (new on special edition) You have the option of listening to the episode in the orignal mono, or in Dolby.
10. Isolated Score, from the 2003 DVD
11. PDF materials: Radio Times Listings (new)
12. Coming Soon - the preview for the episode "Planet of the Spiders".
13. Easter Egg. Go to the Episode Selection menu, and select the Dr. Who logo.

Disc 2:
1. Alternate 4-episode version (new). The episode as filmed, as four standard length episodes.
2. Audio Commentary 2, the commentary on the 2003 DVD. Commentary is by Peter Davison (Dr. Who), Janet Fielding (Tegan Jovanka) and Matthew Robinson (director)
3. Come In Number Five (new) This short is a retrospective of Peter Davison's tenure as Doctor Who. Many people are included in this, including Davison himself.
4. Tomorrow's Times - The Fifth Doctor (new) Presented by Frazer Hines, this is about how the Fifth Doctor was presented in the press.
5. Walrus (new) Found buried in the BBC archives, this short short is about a Welsh woman who meets a Dalek. The Dalek tries to make her talk in a monotone.
6. Photo Gallery (new)
7. Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound Mix. (new on special edition) You have the option of listening to the episode in the orignal mono, or in Dolby.
8. Isolated Score, for the 4 part episode.
9. Production Note Subtitles, from the 2003 DVD. Commentary by Paul Scoones. He speaks about the cast, script and other parts of making this Doctor Who episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! Nov. 13 2012

When I buy a Doctor Who dvd, I don't expect dazzling special effects. What I DO want is solid acting and a good story. And I can say without doubt that this title delivered. A great time to be had for all Doc Who fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good-By Tegan, and I Don't Blame you for Leaving March 10 2013
By M. Ruble - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this partially because I'm a completist and this finishes up my Five Doctor run, and partially because it's a damn good story, full of suspense and tragedy, and the departure of a companion I initially didn't like, but grew to love. I like that, after all she's been through, The Daleks are the one thing that finally drives Tegan away. Five's been fighting them for so long, I doubt he even things about what they look like to an outsider. And Turlough, who's an alien himself, and who, as we find out in the next episode, has been through his own traumatic experiences, just takes them in stride as more of The Doctor's strangeness. Her departure is one of the most human and heartbreaking, scenes in the episode, and it's also one of those times that you see how truly alien The Doctor is. He's saddened, yes, but he can't quit understand why now. The Doctor tends to act so human most of the time, it's fascinating when you get these little glimpses into who he rally is. For him, this is SOP. He's been fighting these things across the universe for as long as he can remember. He hates them, because he's only too aware of the damage they can do, but he also knows they have to fought and stopped again and again, and that it's going to fall to him (and whoevers with him) to stop them.That they might find this traumatizing and want to leave never really occurs to him. Not because he's bad, but because when you get right down to it, he's an alien. This is what he does. And while he knows there are going to be casualties and people will die and leave, he never really stops to think about those moments.
5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who Resurrection of the Daleks - Davidson April 16 2014
By JKINSPECTOR - Published on Amazon.com

This episode was one of the better Davidson as Dr Who shows he played in. The Daleks are the best villain in the series and he does not disappoint his dealings with them. The two sidekicks performed their best roles in this episode and it is too bad that Davidson and his sidekicks couldn't continue in these type shows as most of Davidson show themes were weak at best!
5.0 out of 5 stars Not so Special, Special Edition Dec 14 2013
By Jim Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
This is a two Disk selection. I think the most special feature is that on one disk we find the traditional half hour segments as broadcast in England while on the other we find the Americanized edition where the show has been compressed to two one hour shows.

As far as I am concerned that makes this edition worth my hard earned cash right there. But wait there is more.

The Special Features selection offers:

Come in Number Five,Hosted by David Tennant A look at the tenure of the 5th Doctor Peter Davison. We even get a peek at a short he did with David Tennant called 'Time Crash' Seems this was done for a charity event. I would love to be able to purchase it.

Tomorrow's Times, Mostly a talking head stringing unrelated comments together in order to get a paycheck.

Walrus, A short featuring a Dalek and a Welsh girl.

Photo Gallery, Whats a special edition without a PhotoGallery

Info text, Really awesome factoids appearing during the episode. I found these much more interesting than the scripted specials.

Coming Soon, A preview of "Death to The Daleks" Story #72 with the 3rd Doctor, Jon Pertwee
