Victory of the Daleks
The Doctor has been summoned by his old friend Winston Churchill but in the Cabinet War Rooms, far below the streets of blitz-torn London, he finds his oldest enemy waiting for him... The Daleks are back! And can Churchill really be in league with them?
The Ironsides were designed to be the perfect warrior, after the concept was dreamt up by Professor Bracewell, seemingly from nowhere. In actual fact, these new weapons which Winston Churchill wanted to use to win the war were in fact Daleks, who had fallen back through time and needed the Doctor to be able to create the new Dalek race. Professor Bracewell was in fact an android built by the Daleks, part of a complex trap to lure the Doctor back to where they were hiding, so he would unwittingly allow the Dalek race to be reborn thanks to his testimony. The new Daleks appeared, and exterminated the Ironsides.
In this exceptional commemoration celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who we continue our look back at the actors who have portrayed this iconic hero over its historic past. The years 1981-1996 saw four new actors portray the Doctor, Peter Davison (1981-83), Colin Baker (1984-86), Sylvester McCoy (1987-89) and Paul McGann (1996). Current Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is joined by actors from Doctor Who's storied past including Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville and others to look back at the unique characteristics that make each actor's portrayal a thrilling new adventure. And each retrospective is followed by one full story for each Doctor, including Earthshock, Vengeance on Varos, Remembrance of the Daleks, and Doctor Who: The Movie, presented in both widescreen, feature-length version and in its episodic, original format. The Doctor's Revisited is a celebration of Doctor Who that true fans won't want to miss!
