Death to the Daleks on DVD?
Coming soon to DVD is Death to the Daleks, and while details of extras and packaging remain sparse-to-non-existent, it seems that Amazon are happy for buyers to get their orders in early!
Broadcast back in 1974, Death to the Daleks is the third story to feature Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and features humans, TARDIS travellers and Daleks stranded without power on Exxilon, a distant planet with a city that drains the power of passing craft.
While not the strongest Dalek story it nevertheless puts Skaro’s meanest in a new situation, one of survival. Without their usual radiation weapons the Daleks are powerless, resorting eventually to projectile guns rather than beams. It’s scary to consider just how resourceful they are… and interesting to see that in this case they are driven by psychokinetic power, thereby enabling them to avoid the power drain!
Starring Jon Pertwee and Lis Sladen, Death to the Daleks is apparently slated for release on June 18th for £14.99.
