Death to the Daleks


(Series 11, Episodes 11-14)

Summary: The Doctor channels my grandfather in telling Sarah to “put some more clothes on” until a power failure and a space plague leads to an unlikely (unholy?) alliance between the Doctor, the Daleks and some future humans.  But those Daleks really are duplicitous bastards.  (They may have a new outfit Doctor, but that’s no reason to trust them).  The Doctor makes a crusty new friend who accompanies him on an Indiana Jones-style quest to the centre of the Exxilon city and Sarah pulls off a sneaky switcheroo with some bags of sand to save the day.
