Daleks Master Plan 1: Mission to the Unknown

Here it is, ladies and gentlemen – part one of The Daleks’ Master Plan, our free adaptation of the lost Doctor Who classic that will be brought to you in episodic form every Saturday throughout the summer!

I say “we”, but really none of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of Rick Lundeen who started the project back in 2010.

Three years in the making, this is one of the only ways to enjoy the legendary incomplete serial in which the Doctor and Steven stumble upon a massive Dalek conspiracy to conquer the Solar System!

Back in 1965, The Daleks’ Master Plan kicked off five weeks before the full story with a single episode, Mission to the Unknown (also known as “Dalek Cutaway”). This acted as a big teaser for the main event, which arrived after four part serial The Myth Makers.

This time around, however, no one has to sit through The Myth Makers. Instead, you can enjoy Rick Lundeen’s superb adaptation of The Daleks’ Master Plan every week at 5.30 pm here on Kasterborous – starting today!

Begin the adventure below by clicking the first thumbnail and cycling through with the arrows, or scroll to the foot of the page for the download link.

You can download the full installment free in PDF, CBZ and CBR formats via the Kasterborous Store now.

We’ll be back with part two same time next week!

    Loving this adaptation of the story – great colour and mood. Feels great to ‘see’ this story for the first time.

  2. Michael says:

    Good work. This is the second time I have seen the Mission to the Unknown episode done as a comic. I will have to compare the two side by side now.

    You know what spoils this comic?
    That the Daleks have pupils…

      But daleks do have pupils. Or at least they used to. In the first Dalek story, at least, they even went to the trouble of making them change size (which also got a mention in David Whitaker’s novelisation). Why wouldn’t Daleks have pupils? If you’re going to make something to act as an eye (like a camera, for example), it makes sense for it to be able to regulate the amount of light getting in.

    This is superb- I really very much want this as a book. In fact I want several copies, so I can give it out as presents. Both the adaptation of the script and the visuals are magnificent- and I LOVE your daleks. Previous versions of this have been hamstrung by an attempt to stay too faithful to the style of the original programmes, while this is threaded with Marvel/ Kirby DNA. And all the better for it. Please rush a physical collected version out as soon as possible.
