Doc falls into a ten-minute coma, circumvents some forgettable bacteria and introduces the Daleks to the perils of molten ice.
In what is largely a remake of (or homage to) his own masterpiece The Daleks, Terry Nation returned to Doctor Who with this hugely divisive serial, Planet of the Daleks.
Forgetting all about his encounter with The Master, the Ogrons, Draconians and Daleks in the previous six-parter, Frontier in Space, Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor stumbles away from the TARDIS console only to fall into one of those pesky ten-minute comas. Companion Jo Grant swiftly picks up a recording device (that will play no part in the narrative), pops out of the TARDIS on an unknown planet assuming that she’ll find medical help out there somewhere (which she does) and soon she and The Doctor must team up with the Thals and a friendly Spiridon to battle the menacing Daleks. Sound familiar?
