Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
It’s Day 15 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2022.
Can the Fourth Doctor avoid being attacked by a Dalek mutant in ‘Genesis of the Daleks’?
The video features the closing section of ‘Part Five’ of ‘Genesis of the Daleks’. Tom Baker’s Doctor, with the help of Sarah Jane and Harry, sets up the detonation device to blow up the mutant Daleks in their chamber. We know he won’t do it in the end, but it’s intriguing how he goes about setting it up.
The scene where Davros asks Gharman and the Scientific Elite of Kaleds to set up a meeting in order for a vote to be taken to stop the development of the Daleks is fascinating. Davros plays to Gharman and everyone else’s whims to give time for his new Daleks to return, turn up and kill those who oppose him.
That happens in ‘Part Six’ of the story. I would have liked to have seen the scene where Nyder asks Davros, “Do you know what you’re saying?” to which Davros answers “I know precisely what I’m saying” in order to build up to the “They talk of democracy, freedom, fairness” speech Davros gives.
I liked it when seeing scenes of the Thal soldier Bettan and the Muto named Sevrin, as they work together to help the Doctor and his friends in thwarting Davros and the Daleks. The moments of them hiding from the Daleks as they glide by above their hiding place are iconic moments to watch. 🙂
And of course, we have the Doctor being strangled by a Dalek mutant attacking him once he exits the chamber. The Doctor was wrong about them being harmless. 😀 The Dalek mutants in the classic TV series look different and not as fully formed compared to the ones depicted in the new TV series.
Thanks for watching and reading!
