In this month's episode Andy & Alex stick with the 3rd Doctor era and review another story that they know incredibly well due to its early release on VHS: Terry Nation's Death to the Daleks. As well as highlighting their favourite moments, they consider how they felt about the story back in the late Eighties compared to now. As usual they also find themselves asking a lot of questions: - Who compiles the 700 Wonders of the Universe? - Why does Julian Fox (Hamilton) have such huge eyebags? - How would you go about synthesising parrinium? - Does 10 million people really constitute a galaxy-wide plague (its only the population of Sweden!)? - and What did Michael E. Briant do immediately after recording the BBC DVD audio commentary for this story? Alex also contemplates writing a spin-off called 'Space Chums!' and worries if World Enough and Time has gone a bit South Bank Show, while Andy argues that this story is a template for Hinchcliffe Who and foxes Alex with a quiz called UNIT or UNOT. Along the way they also re-examine the relationship between the 3rd Doctor and Sarah, have a Bellal love-in, and contemplate how prescient the story is to due to its out-of-control AI city. All this and sitting on Cy Town's lap too! We love you! Andy & Alex xxx Next Time: The Seeds of Doom
