Episode 043: Death to the Daleks

“It’s rather a pity, in a way. Now the universe is down to six hundred and ninety nine wonders.”

ImageThe Doctor reacts badly to the news of Girls Aloud splitting up. Luckily, the Krynoid Podcast is here to take his mind off it.

After giving Cold WarHide and Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS the once-over, Jim and Martin travel back in time to 1974 for Death to the Daleks – a tale of disarmed Daleks, operatic Exxilons and homicidal hoovers from the City of Dave.

They play ‘Spot the Terry Nation Trope’ while also wondering just how terrifying a patch of two-toned flooring can be.

With an empty Dalek ‘standing’ about and a blushing high priest channeling Spike Milligan, they ask ‘Who is the real goon?’

And they plead with Carey Blyton to stop using sax as a weapon.

So why not dive in? Come on, the water’s effervescent.

Get it here!

    Sara Jane’s request to the Doctor “not to run off” when she goes back to the TARDIS to change clothes is one of the great moments in all Who. I’m not a fan of the Daleks, but this is one of their better stories – mainly because they are only one of the enemies the Doc and SJ have to deal with.

    Yes, and he wanders off anyway! This is a great story and, as you say, the Exxilons and the City itself provide much more peril for the Doctor and SJ than the Daleks. 🙂
