Pitting our heroes against not one but two formidable adversaries, we look at the six-part coup d’êtat story that ends not only the 15th classic season, but a very important relationship as well. We discuss the unexpected nature of this “Agnew”-penned season closer, the ever-changing nature of the conflict that helps maintain interest through a six-part story, and the unusual performances of Baker and Jameson, given the timing of the production.
Power, Genesis, Asylum, Master Plan, Invasion…five decades of Dalek mayhem launches a lot of schemes for ultimate domination. What if we took a random term like “the marriage of”, and extracted a Dalek plot from it?
