Sean, Andy, and Bay are joined by Stephanie and Jessica to talk about the Second Serial of Doctor Who, "The Daleks". Sean explains why he was a dirty, rotten liar when he called this one "The Dead Planet" in the previous episode. We discuss the key figures in the creation of the Daleks, and name drop a famous director who was almost their designer. While discussing the serial, we talk about pacifism, how much of a jerk the Doctor is, and why Episode 6 has the most appropriate name in Doctor Who history. Finally, we talk about how this story was initially received and the effect it would have on the show as a whole.

Sean and Bay are rejoined by guest host Kieron to continue our discussion of the Pre-History of Doctor Who. We talk about such topics as what producing a television show was like at the BBC in the early 60's, the creation of the show's iconic title sequence and musical theme, and the epic search for an actor to play The Doctor. Along the way, we talk also spend some time talking about missing episodes, the show's conflict with the Kennedy assassination, and, for some reason, gravy.
