Doctor Who: The Evil of the Daleks by David Whitaker; dir. Derek Martinus (BBC, 1967/2021) A moody story that stays pleasingly small-scale for the majority of its seven episodes. While the premise proves a bit batty, Dudley Simpson’s incidental music keeps the viewer invested. The animation flatters the Daleks and rises to something near resplendence on Skaro.
Doctor Who: Return to Skaro by Andrew Smith (Big Finish, 2020) This direct sequel to the first ever Dalek story works best if one can disregard all subsequent canon (plus the Thals lacking so developmentally arduous a skill as timekeeping; condescension begets poppycockery). The recast TARDIS crew also takes some getting used to.
