Planet of the Daleks


(Series 10, Episodes 13-18)

Summary: Tell me, is that genuine Muppet fur?  Oh Tezza Nation, how we’ve missed your wacky Dalek hi-jinks.  Once again the Doctor finds himself uniting with the Thals against the Daleks and once again a Thal takes a liking to the Doctor’s companion.  No snogging this time, though.  The Daleks are trying to perfect invisibility but after a molten ice volcano (nope, don’t know either) destroys their fleet they are left shaking their fists (plungers?) at a departing TARDIS.

Watch it because: It’s a nice bit of continuity from the show’s earliest days.
