Ever have fond memories of something, which later on you have a chance to revisit. In this case, it was something of a mistake. The production values for this BBC classic are so budget that its more of a comedy. Gender roles have dated as well – high cringe factor. For the fans only.

Description

Featuring two six-part Jon Pertwee (3rd Doctor) adventures involving one of the Doctor’s greatest nemeses – The Daleks! Packed with a host of fantastic special features too!

In the 6 part Planet of the Daleks, The TARDIS materialises in a hostile jungle on the planet Spiridon. The Time Lord, learns of the Thals mission to destroy a party of Daleks sent there to discover the native Spiridons' secret of invisibility.

In the 6 part Frontier in Space, the TARDIS arrives in the year 2540 on board an Earth spaceship, which then comes under attack from the Ogrons.

Frontier in space (1973)
When the TARDIS accidentally brings the Doctor and Jo aboard Earth cargo ship C982, they find it under attack. The crew perceive the Doctor, Jo and the attackers as Draconians, whose empire currently rivals Earth's for control of the galaxy. But the Doctor and Jo see only Ogrons – brutish, simian mercenaries who steal the cargo, including the TARDIS, and head off into space.
The Doctor's inves­tigations take him to Earth, the Moon and then to Draconia itself. He discovers that the Ogrons are employed by his sworn enemy, the Master, who is attempting to provoke a war between the space empires. The Doctor suspects the scale of the plan is too grand for the Master, but even he is shocked to discover the identity of the far deadlier foe waiting in the wings…

Planet of the Daleks (1973)
Injured after a shoot-out between his old nemesis the Master and the Ogrons, slaves to the evil Daleks, the Doctor sends a message to the Time Lords, asking them to pilot his TARDIS and follow the Daleks to their new base. After he slips into a coma, it falls to his assistant Jo Grant to explore the planet where the TARDIS finally materialises. She meets a party of Thals and is left in hiding aboard their crashed spaceship while they go to the Doctor's aid. On his recovery, the Doctor learns of their mission to destroy a party of Daleks sent here to discover the native Spiridons' secret of invisibility.
Not only must the Doctor contend with the Daleks' new scheme, but he must try to stop them unleashing a plague that will exterminate all organic life. When a rescue ship of Thals arrive, they bring with them darker news still – somewhere on Spiridon 12,000 Daleks are waiting to emerge and take what they believe is their rightful place as the Universe's supreme beings!
