Wait. Romana regenerates willy-nilly, Davros is immortal and Daleks are just robots?
K9’s got laryngitis, Romana is regenerating and trying out bodies like dresses, and the TARDIS still doesn’t have any manual navigation. So where does that leave the Doc? Answer, landing on a strangely familiar planet, with a strangely familiar companion but no mechanical pooch for company.
It soon becomes clear that they’re on the mostly ashen but occasionally verdant remains of Skaro, and the Daleks have come there, too, employing the usual humanoid slave labour force to burrow into the planet on the lookout for something — or someone — in particular. Who’ll get there first, though? And who are those pink-pistol-wielding spacemen who have turned up as well? And why are they so gosh, darn good looking?
