A sequence of “final” experiments, pig chaps, and what is ostensibly a Monoid with a Dalek for a hat.
It’s 1930 and The Cult of Skaro is back, and – for the love of Davros – their stocks are plummeting. In Daleks in Manhattan, part 1 of the double feature that is concluded in Evolution of the Daleks, the motorised dustbins have taken over construction of the Empire State Building, so I guess we have them to thank for this iconic landmark. Why have they done so, though? Well, where else would they be able to conduct each “final” experiment of theirs?
Meanwhile, the destitute of Hooverville are going missing and, with the exception of the New York Record (who deem it front-page news), Spider-Man (Garfield, not Maguire) and that dude from The Phantom Menace, no one pays any attention to their disappearance, but The Doctor and Martha.
Pitted against pig slaves, Doc & Co attempt to circumnavigate the myriad plot holes and foil an evil plan so convoluted and nonsensical, not even the Daleks appear to grasp it themselves. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun chatting about this one.
