‘Proclamation’ is an excellent story in the ongoing series 6 arc. Firmly playing to the format’s strengths (any combination of characters can be used despite actors ageing or sadly no longer being with us) this story offers us the fantastic team-up of UNIT-era Brigadier (and Benton!) with the Seventh Doctor.
The story doesn’t just rely on this unique selling point though, and embellishes Time Lord mythology, fitting beautifully with Seventh Doctor-era themes and the darkness hinted at in those stories. This is where I started watching the show, so I’m fascinated by any stories that continue it.
The visuals are great, with lighting being used to great effect to create atmosphere, and *amazing* shots of Daleks flying through a devastated London that are stunning. These and the cliff-hanger for episode two are two stand-out moments in a very accomplished piece of writing and direction.
