The Daleks’ Masterplan Audios

Big, bold and rather long, The Daleks’ Masterplan heralded the first real over exposure of The Daleks. This 12-part epic stretched the affection the British public had for these little pepper pots to the limit and also seemed to repeat itself on a regular basis.

Doctor Who and the Silurians

When I started out doing this series of classic who reviews, the initial group of stories was going to be ones that had some connection (if loosely) to the current series of Doctor Who.
