So you want to continue your successful show but need to recast your leading man. What do you do?
Why you make it as difficult as possible for your bemused audience to accept him, of course!
The Power of the Daleks sees impish impostor Pat Troughton cackling evilly, talking about himself in the third person and doing his very best to disingratiate himself with the good cop / bad cop companions, Polly and Ben.
Luckily there are some seemingly servile Daleks to distract their attention, along with some crafty colonists, an increasingly mad professor and Vulcan’s worst ever spy.
Polly wears shorts, the Doctor wears a silly hat, and Ben wears down everyone’s nerves with his unmanaged anger.
Does Valmar desire dominatrices?
Who would win in a fight between Hartnell and Troughton?
Will the Doctor’s recorder soon be in need of a rinse?
And did Jim and Martin find the new bloke a refreshing change or more like a fart in the face from a mercury swamp?
Listen to find out!
