Doctor Who - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth

Got another old DOCTOR WHO tape from the library, "The Dalek Invasion Of Earth", a second season story with the original Doctor William Hartnell, plus the last with the full original supporting cast. Unfortunately I'd say I had a mixed reaction to this one at best. The Daleks were pretty good as always, but there wasn't nearly enough of them in this six-part story. Plus it's one of those where the main cast splits up for the bulk of the story, so there are three or four storylines to follow for most of the show, not all of them that engaging.

There were a lot of pretty good scenes mixed in that make it worth watching, including a rather odd chase scene in London which felt pretty different for the show, and the ending, where the Doctor's grand-daughter Susan is left behind on future Earth, is pretty good.
