1)"No one's going to turn me into an interplanetary puppet." "Interplanetary Puppet" would be a good band name.
2)The Ogrons always remind me of the Gumbys from Monty Python - I keep waiting for them to go, "Hello! Shut up! Sorry! Hello! My brain hurts!", and so on.
3)"Jo, how thoughtful." Yates, you bum.
4)Cliffhanger #1: The Daleks call for extermination! (Well, they would, wouldn't they?)
5)Dang, the Dalek voices in this sound stilted and awkward. One of the extras on the DVD release is a "re-edited" version with better special effects and Nick Briggs doing the Dalek voices. Whatever you may think of Briggs, he's a million times better than the guys they had doing the voices on the original version of this.
6)Pertwee's quite good in this. It's funny - when I was akid atching these, I didn't warm to him all that much, but watching him now, I quite enjoy him in the role.
7)"Well, that's the Blinovitch Limitation Effect."
8)"Don't forget to tell it to the Marines."
9)Wow, the Doctor just casually shot down a couple of Ogrons - no, "I never use guns" for this Doctor.
10)Cliffhanger #2: A Dalek materializes right next to the Doctor!
11)Maybe it's not such a good idea to hire the dumbest available creatures to be your guards.
12)Ah, Pertwee has to get a vehicle chase in.
13)Cliffhanger #3: The Daleks mind-probe the Doctor!
14)"Dalekenium?" It's an explosive! It's a metal! It's a floor wax! It's a dessert topping!
15)"You're trapped in a temporal paradox!" You poor dopes!
16)Courtney's good in this, too.
17)Daleks are kind of slow, here. they should be just running right over these UNIT types.
I quite enjoyed this - a fun story that actually thinks about the paradoxes of time travel. I gather it originally wasn't supposed to be a Dalek story, but that they were added in to give it some "oomph".
Some reviewer pointed out online that Jo seemed to devolve into the mentality of a 13-year-old in this story. Which suggested to me that, possibly, the writer had not seen the show in some time when he submitted the story outline. There are many instances in the show's history where scripts were written around characters who had left the show by the time they went before the cameras-- like THE HORROR OF FANG ROCK, where the script apparently kept saying "Sarah screams", and was changed to "Leela screams" and Louise Jameson had to keep pointing out to the director, "Leela DOES NOT scream!" So DAY OF THE DALEKS may have been written with The Doctor having a teenage girl as the sidekick, instead of someone in their 20's.
The last time I watched these (about a year ago) I was really impressed with Jo. Originally, I was suffering from the unexpected departure of Liz, who I really liked. But Jo has grown on me over the years. While she doesn't seem the brightest light at times (and one can understand The Doctor's initial reaction to meeting her-- "I'm your new assistant." "Oh NO!"), she did have a lot of guts, investigating The Master on her own in her 1st story (even if it resulted in her getting brainwashed). In her 2nd story, she almost single-handedly stopped a prison-break! That's some girl.
I've watched the first two episodes of the "enhanced" version, I noticed the effect you mention.
There was a scene like the one you mention scripted, apparently it was dropped for time reasons. It's in the novelization, as I recall.
