REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS, set in the same 1963 locations as the first serial, put paid to the myth Daleks can’t climb stairs… SILVER NEMESIS features the Cybermen & a comet/statue that returns to Earth once every 25 years…
We look at the charts of Sheila Hancock & the go-to man to play Nazis in British films – Anton Diffring – who in real life was Jewish, gay and fled Nazi Germany to forge a successful acting career.

Two sinister black comedies complete the season – THE HAPPINESS PATROL & THE GREATEST SHOW IN TEHE GALAXY – making this year the perfect blend of the Sylvester McCoy years.
