Redemption of the Daleks
30 August 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Some time in the future, during the Dalek-Human Wars, the Doctor finds an injured Dalek that may be good. Using the current medical technology, Clara, he and three soldiers are miniaturized and inserted into the Dalek to help cure it... with unexpected results.

The script, co-written by series runner and Phil Ford -- who spent several years working on THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES spin-off -- attempts to offer a vision of redemption for the Daleks. The only difference between good and evil is an understanding of the beauty of the universe. Yet what you may choose to do with that understanding is not what others may understand.

This is a very dark and not entirely successful story for DOCTOR WHO. Even so, it offers its viewers a clearer insight into the Twelfth Doctor's psyche. The revived series has offered us fairly simple versions of the Doctor. The Ninth Doctor was filled with regrets over the Last Great Time War; the Tenth was overtly human and the Eleventh bizarrely alien. The Twelfth seems to be shaping up as one seeking some morality to the Universe -- at least in this, his first season. It's an intriguing idea. We'll see if show runner Steven Moffat and his crew can manage to make it great television.
