Doctor Who: Watchers in the Fourth Dimension

Episode 74: Slight Moment of the Daleks (Day of the Daleks)

December 19, 2021

It’s guerillas, gorillas, and Daleks, as we kick off Season 9 with Day of the Daleks - a tale of peace conferences, dystopian futures, and bootstrap paradoxes. Will this be the season where the Third Doctor finally comes into his own, or will we continue to struggle with his bad attitude? And will the Production Team finally give poor Jo something to do again!?


Over the course of the episode, Julie sets a new record for losing her patience with the lads, Anthony redefines UNIT’s remit, Don goes above and beyond on the assignment and watches two versions of the story, and Reilly espouses his “Law of the Conservation of Dickery.” The entire team discuss their delight at how much improved the Doctor is after Season 8 – but will it continue?
