The Seventh Doctor
Remembrance of the Daleks
This week: the best episode with the best Doctor and best companion ever (well, at least in Sara's opinion!). Made in the year of the show's 25th anniversary, the Seventh Doctor goes back to the start in this classic episode with Ace, landing in November 1963 to recover the powerful Hand of Omega and to stop the two rival Dalek factions getting "their grubby little protuberances on" it. Come along to see the last appearance of the Daleks and their 'emperor' in the Classic Series!
