If you were growing a little weary of the repeated base-under-siege stories of the Troughton era, then The Krotons might have brought welcome relief by presenting us with a tremendously gullible race who believed without question and without evidence that it was dangerous outside just because they’d always been told so, until the Doctor and co…
