One of the earliest scenes in this episode is seen through the eye of the Dalek. This clearly sets up for the theme of this part, the moral ambiguity that can exist even here.

Captain Kirk has proved a dozen times over that he is an exceptional starship commander. Turns out though he makes for a rubbish supply teacher.

So we get an exciting escape sequence and a race against time in the first half, with the thoughtful post-mortem afterwards. As such the second half may well turn out to be less memorable in time but is actually the most important.

This is an interesting episode as it does so many different things. Some new, some old. Some joyous some problematic.

On “The Dead Planet”, we see that fear is no longer driving the travellers together. Ian and Barbara are afraid of being unable to get home, whilst The Doctor and Susan do not appear to have any interest in returning to their time and place.

We now appear to have a new dynamic established. Ian and Barbara no longer appear to be guests but regular time travellers as much as The Doctor and Susan1. Just as in the previous episode, the fear of the situation is helping them gel together as a team.

Whilst the title may explicitly refer to the actual forest our time travellers enter, I wonder if it also could be said to be referring to the key narrative turning point. Up until this point The Doctor and Susan have had much to fear from humans and trust is in short supply.
