    The Genesis of the Daleks was the very first Doctor Who series that I ever saw; because of it, I became a Doctor Who Fan. This episode showcases the multiple plots and colorful characters that epitomize the golden era of Doctor Who. In order to watch older Doctor Who, the viewer has to let go of the expectation of awesome special effects. Doctor Who is more or less a theater experience, and has a lot less polish than we've become accustomed to. Now, I personally find this dynamic to be refreshing, and it lets me focus more on substance and less on polish (which too many shows rely on).



    This series is classic Who. It is one of the true masterpieces of the Baker era, and I thoroughly recommend it.moreless
