The Daleks are back for their third outing and this time sporting a natty row of solar cells around their middle. A bsic design that will remain unchanged until Moffet makes them fatties.
If anything sums up the chase it is three words “Terry Fucking Nation”. Yet agin we get stupidly named planets. Crap aliens and insane plots… oh and sentient plants (my wife has hardly watched these and even she picked up on THAT). I have to ask, jusst what the hell is going on with the Doctors Doppelganger! did the production team think nobody would notice? Was it simply a cunning ploy to ID the enemy. Was Terry Nation fucked out of his head on “special plants?”. The chase is a mess, 6 entirely disparate episodes with the only redeeming point being the last few minutes where we get to wave goodbye to Barbara and Ian. Now Hartnell is the only remaining member of the original crew.
Please god don’t let that hack Nation write anymore. (Yes I know he does but I am being dramatic)
