"One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine."
-- The First Doctor to Susan Foreman, Doctor Who: "The Dalek Invasion of Earth"
My good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I finally back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! And this time, we explore the William Hartnell classic, "The Dalek Invasion of Earth"!
Exploring this Season 2 story from 1964, Jesse and I discuss things like actor Kyle Chandler, River Song meeting the Eighth Doctor, classic Doctors meeting new monsters, the difference in modern story pacing, Doctor Who's ambition exceeding its production budget, developing the Dalek mythos and catchphrases, my love of alien resistance stories, the Doctor warming up to Ian and Barbara, the early days when Doctor Who had individual episode titles within a story arc, Dalek upgrades, Carole Ann Ford leaving Doctor Who, Susan Foreman leaving her grandfather, The Doctor saying goodbye, our Reverse the Polarity segment, The BBC Video guys being jerks for not releasing "The Underwater Menace" on DVD, and more!
