Tnbris planet All this translates rather better on theage than it did on the screen with a six art story you get a lot of running around The Dalek army if I recall consisted of the roduction team going out and buying as many Dalek toys as they could find and setting them up on a flat surface Similarly the idea of an invisible monster might have sounded like a good way of saving money technicians waving fronds to simulate movement for example but it just doesn t work The less said about the jungle the better as this was done all on set and so it looks totally fake Back to the story though The Doctor and Jo are The scent portrayed well here as are the Thals and Spiridons the invisible inhabitants of thelanet The Daleks fare less well having far too many emotions being shown at times can they really show things such as amazement and astonishment Anger I can understand though as the motley crew successfully destroys the waiting Dalek armyAn entertaining 3 stars.

As a kid I enjoyed this story a lot Upon re reading it it feels so repetitive from other Dalek stories Terry Nation wrote this script and you can tell with the following checklistJungle Planet Dalek MasterplanSneaking Dry Hard past Daleks inside a Dalek The DaleksTemporary disabling someone by numbing their legs The DaleksThal leader learning to take action The DaleksFreezing an Army Tomb of the CybermenOkay the last one was not written by Terry Nation but it still shows the whole story is a mash up ofarts from other Doctor Who stories Terrance Dicks again writes by the numbers which does not help improve the storyIn summary you get what you get with this a recap of the TV story One classic thing from this story is Spiridon Which comes back later in the 1993 comic Emperor of the Daleks I remember enjoying that one when it first the Daleks I remember enjoying that one when it first in Doctor Who Monthly though I have to be careful since my childhood memories seem to fail me at timesOn a side note I might have made me give an extra star is if Jo did leave with the Thal then I would not have to suffer through three stories
