Dalek

Dalek

"Dalek" is simply one of the finest Doctor Who episodes of all time. The trapped-in-a-bunker plot is remarkably simple, but Robert Shearman's writing and the acting, especially on the parts of Eccleston, Piper, and Nicholas Briggs as the voice of the Dalek (doing an excellent Roy Skelton impression), elevate it to perhaps the most haunting episode since Tom Baker's swan song "Logopolis". Bravo.
