For most people, 'Genesis of the Daleks' means only one thing: Davros. And quite rightfully, top honors go to Michael Wisher. Watching him this time I was struck by the fact that not only does he have to contend with a full head mask and the very limited use of one hand, but the character is totally immobile. Sitting stiffly upright and staring straight ahead, Davros exhibits no body language whatsoever. Wisher doesn't have the option of performing with his eyes, and even his voice is robbed of its full vocal range. And yet through all this, he reaches us, and firmly establishes Davros as one of the most chillingly memorable villains ever. A master manipulator, Davros only loses control of the situation at the very end. Pleading with his creations to show pity, he discovers that it's precisely because of his own design that the Daleks do not even understand the word.

This seems to typify Genesis. It scores points so consistently that you forgive the flaws and follow the story with enjoyment and admiration. Genesis of the Daleks is a good reason to be a Doctor Who fan.

Wow - this brought back some memories - of hiding behind the sofa on a Saturday night watching the good Doctor battle the Daleks and other beings on his travels. Every Saturday night, without fail, was Doctor Who night. Every Saturday night, without fail, my brother and I were hiding behnd the sofa... Ah the memories.

Dr Who was very much a cult show, and once the longest Sci-Fi show in the world.

Most shows from the 1970's look very dated, On watching the show, I was surprised at how un-dated it looked. I guess that was part of the joy of being able to re-watch this show, and relive so many memories with my daughter, who was as taken with it as I was.

At six whole episodes on the disk, it represents exceedingly good value - three whole hours of entertainment.

And that scarf... I so wanted a scarf like that as a child. What child didn't?
