Last Faction Hero (Quelling “Revolution of the Daleks”)

As Doctor Who’s ultimate monsters, the Daleks have been rebooted more times than a MacBook doing a janky system update. The most recent revamp came via Revolution of the Daleks, where the children of Davros got a new look inspired by the previous holiday special, Resolution, complete with sleek black casing and his and hers colored LEDs. But Dalek design isn’t the only thing up for revision here: we also get new takes on a pair of Jacks — Harkness and Robertson — who both try on something different as they return to the familiar. That’s basically the new Daleks’ plan here, too, and though it may not have worked out great for them, you can’t question what this story did for Doctor Who’ production values. VICTORY! VICTORY!
