In the last article we looked at how N-Space was created, the early years of N-Space’s version of earth and our solar system, the rise of various races such as the Time Lords, the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Sontarans, the Treens, the Furons, and finally the war between the Gods.

In this article we will be taking a look at how modern man first discovered he wasn’t alone in the universe, how mankind would survive alien invasions from the most evil and destructive creatures of N-Space such as the Daleks, the Cybermen, and the Furons, its battles with giant prehistoric monsters and finally how ironically many of these prehistoric beasts such as Godzilla and Gamera would become heroes to humanity.

The three unlikely heroes of humanity throughout most of the 20th century.

It would be from the 20th century onward that the history of earth in N-Space would become more noticably different. Whilst extraterrestrials had visited the N-Space version of earth many times before, and had even helped to shape its history. All of these previous visitations had either passed into legend such as the Vampires, or been covered up like Light.

If you were to look at a history book from the early 20th century version of N-Space, then it would be virtually identical to one from our universe during that time.

Nevertheless even prior to the Cyber invasion of 1986, the various alien visitations throughout N-Space’s version of earth, as well as the presence of the Silurians civilization would still have caused some notable changes in N-Space’s version of earth’s history, such as the advancement of humanity in technological and even social terms.

Still we will be looking at the 20th century of N-Space’s version of earth in a greater detail, as it was really during the 20th century when everything changed for humanity.

1900s

In the year 1908, a Blisk’s spaceship crashed into Russia in Tunguska. This was the last Blisk ship to survive the Furon war, and in a desperate attempt to escape its enemies, it fled towards the earth, falling through the time fissure in the process, which sent it several thousand years to the early 20th century.

Upon arriving on earth, the Blisk would slowly infiltrate Russian society. They would help the communist party gain control of Russia and slowly replace its members with their own in disguise.

One member of the communist party, Leon Trotsky would discover the truth about the Blisk who subsequently had him assassinated.

The Blisk’s ultimate aim was to build humanity up to the level where they could create weapons that would allow them to not only take over the entire earth, but reform it into an irradiated water world just like Mars. It would take them several decades to attempt this however, due to their limited resources and humanity’s own constant infighting.

1910s

In the year 1911, Marcus Scarman led an expedition into the black Pyramid where Sutekh had been imprisoned for over 1000 years. Ignoring the warnings from the locals, who still believed the legends of Sutekh, Scarman foolishly stumbled into Sutekh’s tomb.

Though the Eye of Horus kept Sutekh imprisoned, Sutekh was still able to muster up a mere fraction of his former power to kill Scarman and then reanimate his corpse.

Scarman under Sutekh’s command would construct a small army of Mummy robots using bits and pieces of Osiran technology left on the earth. Moving the Mummies to Scarman’s estate in England (along with the Osiran technology.) Sutekh also transported a portal leading to his tomb from Egypt which allowed him to still control Scarman in England.

Sutekh hoped to create a rocket in secret in Scarman’s estate which he would then fire at the Pyramid of Mars, destroying both it and the Eye of Horus, freeing him.

One of Scarman’s friends, Doctor Warlock as well as his brother Lawrence, grew worried when he didn’t return from Egypt and decided to investigate Scarman’s estate. Unfortunately they would soon become trapped when Sutekh placed transduction barriers around the estate to prevent anyone from getting in or out. Sutekh would then order both his robots and Marcus to kill all the humans on the estate (including Sutekhs own human servant, Numan.) Whilst Lawrence was able to evade the monsters, sadly Doctor Warlock was killed by the Mummies.

Fortunately however the Fourth Doctor would arrive on the estate in his TARDIS along with his companion Sarah. The Doctor had been alerted to Sutekh’s presence when the Pyramid of Mars which monitored Sutekh’s tomb, sensed a breach and sent a warning signal out into the universe to alert any nearby life forms “Beware Sutekh!

Whilst no one on earth had the technology to even decipher the message, the Fourth Doctor realized what the warning meant, having heard about the real Sutekh on his various travels, and worked with Lawrence to try and shut down operation of the rocket.

At one point Sarah Jane Smith begged the Doctor just to leave, but the Doctor warned her that Sutekh would destroy the world unless they stopped him. Sarah however scoffed at the idea, pointing out that they knew that Sutekh didn’t destroy the world in 1911. The Doctor would take her back to her time (1980), where Sarah saw the earth desolate and devoid of any life. The Doctor explained to her that a being of Sutekh’s virtually limitless power could easily destroy time itself.

Sarah discovers what will become of her world and countless others if Sutekh is not stopped from escaping in 1911.

Unfortunately however Lawrence botched the Doctors attempts to severe Sutekh’s control over Marcus. Doing so would effectively kill Marcus, and naturally Lawrence tried to save his brother. The Doctor admonished Lawrence telling him that his brother was already dead and that the costs would be immeasurable if Sutekh was not stopped. Despite the Doctors warnings to Lawrence, he would try to reach his brother again, who still completely under Sutekh’s control, would torture Lawrence to death for information about the Doctor (with Sutekh having suspected that an extra terrestrial was on the estate as no human could possibly have the knowledge to severe his connection with Marcus.)

The Doctor and Sarah would succeed in placing a bomb on the rocket, but when they tried to detonate it, Sutekh was able to hold the explosion with his mental power. In order to stop Sutekh, the Doctor was forced to travel to his tomb (which he did using the portal, concealed within a sarcophagus.)

The Doctor distracted Sutekh long enough for the Osiran to release his hold over the bomb, causing it to explode. Unfortunately however before the Doctor could escape, Sutekh stopped him with his powers and begun to torture the Time Lord. Though the Doctor didn’t give into the torture, Sutekh was able to briefly take control of his mind, and forced the Doctor to take Scarman and his robot Mummies to the Pyramid of Mars.

There the Mummies would destroy the Eye of Horus, despite Sarah and the Doctor’s best efforts to stop them.

With Sutekh now able to move again, he declared that he would crush the earth and hurl it to the very depths of space. The Doctor however was able to stop the monster at the very last minute using a device from his TARDIS.

The Doctor would stretch the portal Sutekh used to escape from his prison to the point where it would take the Osiran several million years to reach the end of it, which was longer than even the great lifespan of an Osiran.

The Doctor finally defeated Sutekh once and for all, but in stretching the time corridor he caused a fire which burned the Scarman estate to the ground. 60 years later, UNIT HQ would be built over its ruins.

1920s

Allosaurus, one of the top predators of the plateau.

In the year 1925 mankind would discover that Dinosaurs had not entirely died out in the KT extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous period.

Professor George Challenger discovered the plateau where the Dinosaurs, kept preserved in the Silurians chambers for millions of years had been awoken and now roamed as the dominant life forms.

Challenger was not actually the first person to explore the plateau. The eccentric explorer Maple White had actually discovered the plateau earlier, but he sadly had become lost and trapped there. It was his daughter, Paula, that alerted Challenger to the existence of the “Lost World” by showing him her fathers diaries and drawings of the prehistoric creatures he had encountered.

Challenger decided to mount an expedition to see if White’s claims were true. He led a team consisting of Paula White, journalist Edward Malone, big game hunter Lord John Roxton, and skeptic Lord Summerlie.

As soon as they arrived on the plateau they encountered Dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures, but sadly the explorers were soon trapped by a Brontosaurus that destroyed the log, linking the plateau to the outside world.

The team would encounter various other Dinosaurs including both Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex (as well as a vicious ape man) whilst struggling to survive.

The Kings of the Lost World.

Paula would sadly discover that her father had been killed by the Dinosaurs on the previous expedition.

The explorers would eventually find a way to escape, and in a further stroke of luck, they discovered a Brontosaurus at the bottom of the plateau. It had earlier been pushed off of the edge of the plateau by an attacking Allosaurus. The sauropod had survived the fall, and after nursing it back to help, Challenger would ship it off to London as proof of their adventures. The Brontosaurus however soon escaped and rampaged its way through London. It destroyed a lot of property, but fortunately it didn’t kill anyone before it quickly jumped into the Thames and swam off into the English channel.

The public are alerted to the existence of living Dinosaurs in the 20th century.

Challenger sadly would be sued for damages caused by the Brontosaurus, but he would still nevertheless be remembered as one of the greatest and most influential scientific figures of the 20th Century.

Edward Malone and Paula White meanwhile would marry after the adventure, with Malone’s fiance having left him during his time on the plateau.

In the late 20s a group of robots from the future, known as the Expanoids would invade and conquer humanity. Their aim was to eliminate all forms of advanced technology from the earth’s history and so they would establish a ban on any forms of electronic equipment after their invasion, which would last for close to 30 years. All forms of science that weren’t sanctioned by the Expanoids would be banned too.

Fortunately time travellers from the future, Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer, The Cat and Kryten, a mechanoid would follow the Expanoids back to the 50s and succeed in short circuiting the Expanoids with a weapon designed by the last remaining human resistance force.

Though the invasion was defeated, the damage the Expanoids had done to the timeline of earth however was still immense, so the Second Doctor whilst working for the Celestial Intervention Agency would be sent forward to the future, just before the Expanoids would travel backwards to the 20s.

The Doctor alerted, Lister, Rimmer, The Cat and Kryten to the Expanoids presence much earlier, and the 5 of them would succeed in destroying the Expanoids, before they could arrive in the 1920s, restoring the timeline.

1930s

Image result for king kong 1933

The 8th Wonder of the World.

In the year 1933, Carl Denham would discover a map leading to Skull Island. Denham was a celebrated explorer and film maker, and wanted to shoot his latest movie on the legendary Skull Island. Myths had developed around Skull Island over the last several hundred years. For Denham in the 30s, this must have been like discovering a map to Atlantis.

When Denham arrived on the island however with his ship the SS Venture, the Natives, who were preparing for their sacrifice to Kong (which happened every decade) decided to select Ann Darrow, Denham’s leading lady instead.

The Natives were not evil. They had spent their entire lives struggling to survive on the worst place on earth, and regularly had to sacrifice their own daughters, sisters and mothers to the great Ape. This was a golden opportunity not to have to sacrifice one of their own and they took it. If one of their number was not presented up to Kong then he would simply break his way into their village and take one of them by force. The last time this happened several decades ago, 50 villagers were killed in the attack.

The father of the young girl, chosen to be sacrificed to Kong, (victims were normally selected a month before the Ape’s arrival to be given time to say goodbye to their families.) Personally led the attack on Denham’s ship where Ann was captured and later handed over to Kong.

Denham, and Jack Driscoll, Denham’s first shipmate (who had fallen in love with Ann during the course of their journey,) would lead a team through the jungles of skull island to try and find Ann. They would encounter various Dinosaurs and dangerous creatures along the way.

Whilst the Brontosaurus was normally a peaceful herbivore, the harsh environment of Skull Island had caused it to become more hostile and aggressive to any animal that came near its territory, which the crew of the Venture discovered much too late.

Jack Driscoll who along with Denham was the only person to survive the encounter with Kong and the pit, would have nightmares about the horrific creatures he saw devour his shipmates for the rest of his life.

In addition to this Kong would also as always be forced to protect his latest bride from the various monsters he shared Skull island with including a ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex and a flying Pteranodon.

Kong fights off hordes of Dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures to protect Ann Darrow.

Eventually Jack was able to rescue Ann and make his way back to the Venture. Unfortunately however Kong followed him back to the village. There the great ape killed several Natives before Denham was finally able to knock Kong out with a gas bomb.

Denham decided to bring Kong back to civilization just as Challenger had done with the Brontosaurus almost 10 years earlier.

Denham would showcase Kong as the 8th wonder of the world, but unfortunately the Ape managed to escape on the opening night and went on a rampage across New York.

Kong killed dozens of people and even derailed a train before he was able to recapture Ann, by literally pulling her out of the hotel room she was staying in with Jack.

Scared and unsure of the strange new environment he found himself in and still desperate to protect Ann, Kong climbed to the top of the Empire State building, with Ann in tow.

It proved to be a fatal mistake, as at the top of the building, Kong was now vulnerable and fighter jets would, after a protracted fight, shoot the great Ape down.

After surviving for over 100 years on the most dangerous place on earth, King Kong finally succumbs to the weaponry of modern man.

After Kong’s death, his remains would be shipped off to the American Museum of Natural History.

Denham meanwhile would be sued for damages for bringing Kong to New York, just like Challenger.

Unable to pay off the lawsuits, Denham in his desperation would be forced to go back to Skull Island to look for lost treasure, said, according to rumors, to be left over from the original Skull Island civilization.

When Denham returned to Skull Island however, he would be turned away by the Natives who blamed him for the destruction of their village.

Denham would be forced to go round to the other side of Skull Island. There he would not only have more encounters with Dinosaurs, but he would also discover Kong’s son, who he came to nickname Kiko.

Kiko in contrast to his father was very friendly towards the human explorers, and protected them from the Dinosaurs. Sadly however whilst Denham was able to find the treasure, Skull island soon began to break apart.

The landmass had always been unstable, and had slowly been breaking off over the centuries, but now finally the latest earthquake ripped the island to pieces and sunk it beneath the waves.

The Natives and most of the Dinosaurs were killed when the Island sunk (though a few including the Brontosaurus were able to swim to safety.)

Kiko would sacrifice himself to save Denham by holding him above the water until the Venture was able to rescue Denham.

The gold Denham acquired on the island would allow him to pay of the lawsuits and become a very wealthy man in his own right. Still Denham would carry guilt over his actions for the rest of his life, and would in his later years become an animal rights activist and donate masses of his wealth to projects devoted to protecting and conserving rare or endangered species. He passed away in 1971.

Whilst the Megaprimatus Kong were believed to have been extinct following Kiko’s death, it would later be revealed that a few specimens had survived on the Island of Pharo, an offshoot of Skull Island, though more on that Island’s history later.

In the Himalayas meanwhile the Second Doctor would face one of the Anti God’s most evil children. The Great Intelligence

The Great Intelligence had been sealed in a pocket dimension many thousands of years ago by one of God’s followers, but at some point in the 16th century it was able to enter N-Space once again.

The Intelligence was able to use a Tibetan Monks meditations, which brought him to a higher level of consciousness as a gateway to enter our reality once again, where it took control of the monks body.

The Intelligence would spend the next several hundred years, using its robotic servants (which it disguised as Yeti, local, harmless ape like creatures.) To try and find a way to completely corporolize itself so that it could become a god.

By the 1930s the Intelligence was almost ready, but the Second Doctor, working with an explorer named Quentin Travers who was there to try and find the real Yeti, were able to stop the Intelligence’s plans and send the monster back to its prison.

Travers and the Doctor would part on great terms (though Travers greatly respected the Doctor as the greatest scientist he had ever met, he still found it hard to believe his claims about having a time machine being true.)

Travers would go on to be one of the greatest explorers of the 20th century, and go on to have many more encounters with the paranormal over the decades.

In 1938 the Thirteenth Doctor would travel back to Cairo to save a young Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart from the last of a race of aliens known as the Quesilacs.

The Quesilacs were the most advanced race in their solar system. They conquered the other worlds in their solar system, and later expanded to conquer other solar systems across the universe. They came to believe in their arrogance that they were the masters of the universe.

They soon got a very nasty surprise when they came into conflict with the Daleks. The Quesilacs attacked a Dalek colony. As they caught the Daleks off guard, they were able to defeat the small colony, but it soon brought the wrath of the Dalek empire down on their heads.

The Daleks easily slaughtered the Quesilacs. Within a matter of months the Daleks destroyed all of the colonies the Quesilacs had spent centuries building up.

The Quesilacs surrendered unconditionally many times, but the Daleks still kept attacking them. The Daleks saw no strategic value in their relatively small empire, and did not believe the Quesilacs would be useful servants either. They were not physically powerful, and the Daleks couldn’t remould and tamper with their DNA as easily as they could human beings. So the Daleks decided to simply exterminate the “lesser creatures” and they destroyed every single one of their colonies, and burned their home planet to cinders.

Only a few Quesilacs survived, but they managed, through one hit and run attack to steal a Dalek time machine, and escaped the monsters.

The Quesilacs were unable to pilot the ship properly and so instead they arrived in 1980s London, (simply because the earth was in the time machine’s memory banks.)

After staying on earth for a while, the Quesilacs decided to make it their new home planet. They could have piloted their machine to another uninhabited planet, but the Quesilacs, having been utterly humiliated by the Daleks, wanted their new home planet to be one that would be claimed in conquest. They also, knowing this was a planet the Daleks would invade at an earlier point in their history, wanted to set a trap for the metal monsters on earth in the 22nd century, that could destroy them, and thus change history so that their home world would never be destroyed.

The Sixth Doctor and Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart however were able to foil the Quesilacs plans and seemingly destroy them, but one of the aliens managed to escape and using the Daleks time device, travelled back to the 30s to kill the Brigadier as a boy. The Thirteenth Doctors TARDIS was of course directed back there by the Celestial Intervention Agency.

The last of the Quesilacs knew that the Doctor would most likely try to stop it, and so it would ally itself with various humans. It gained their help by showing them false images that he created of the Brigadier as a world leader, causing a third world war that would eradicate human civilization. He lied to the aliens and told them that he was a mutated survivor from the war (explaining his alien appearance.)

The alien and its followers would attack the Brigadier’s family. The Doctor intervened, but sadly the Brigadiers mother and father would both be killed in the attack. Eventually the Doctor was able to destroy the last of the Quesilacs. The young Alistair would then be put in a foster home, but he never forgot his parents and would later join the military in honour of his father who had been a celebrated war hero.

The Thirteenth Doctor would after this adventure travel to the far future and meet the Brigadier as an old man. The Brig recognized the Thirteenth Doctor as the man who had helped him as a boy from what he thought were merely deranged people at the time.

The Brigadier realized what had happened and thanked the Doctor for saving him as a boy and the two shared their last drink together, a toast to the Brigadiers parents.

The Thirteenth Doctor was both the first and last Doctor to meet the Brigadier, who passed away just a few months after the Thirteenth Doctor visited him. He along with all incarnations of the Doctor would later attend the Brigs funeral.

1940s

In 1943 the Seventh Doctor would visit earth to deal with a powerful enemy he had battled in a previous incarnation, Fenric.

One of the first Demons created by the Anti God, and by far and away one of the most evil. Fenric was more of a manipulator than other Demons. He would enjoy twisting the minds of people around him and slowly convincing them into destroying themselves.

Fenric’s latest target was humanity. Arriving on the earth in the 3rd century, the Doctor in an unknown incarnation was able to defeat Fenric before he could wreck havoc.

The Time Lord challenged Fenric to a game of chess which last for over 40 days. The Doctor knew that Fenric loved a challenge, and so he devised a move that Fenric could never get round.

Fenric spent too long in the one body, and eventually become weak enough for the Doctor to imprison him into a flask, sealing Fenric in another dimension.

However even from within his flask Fenric would able to influence the universe around him.

Fenric would influence the corrupt Commander Millington, a British officer into creating a toxic substance which he then buried under the ocean. The chemical would over centuries poison the oceans and the environment of earth, killing most life, and mutating humans into hideous, blood drinking monsters called Haemovores. The Haemovores would wipe out the rest of humanity, before succumbing themselves to the poisoned atmosphere.

The last of the Haemovores, and indeed the last creature on earth was brought forward in time by Fenric. Fenric initially brought the Haemovore to the 10th century to try and free him from his flask, which was taken by the Vikings.

Several Vikings were killed and turned into Haemovores in the process, but they were ultimately unable to free Fenric.

Fenric would instead lay several traps for the Doctor throughout time, including bringing his companion Ace to him, all to ensure his own escape in the year 1943.

Fenric did eventually escape from the flask, but the Doctor was able to foil his plans to exterminate mankind. Ironically Fenric originally convinced the last Haemovore (who had gone on to infect others.) To plant the poison beneath the ocean that would eventually exterminate his planet.

The Haemovore on the Doctors urging destroyed Fenric, with his own poison, the remainder of which was destroyed by the Doctor afterwards, preventing the terrible future from coming true.

During the war the Nazis would utilize paranormal creatures and magics against their enemies, forcing the Allies to turn to the black arts, which led to the establishment of the paranormal agency Department Q. After the war Department Q would be used to tackle paranormal threats in the UK such as Vampires, Werewolves, Demons, Ghosts and the various minions of the Anti God. It would occasionally work with Majesitc, UNIT and British Rocket Group to tackle extraterrestrial threats, but generally speaking it would focus on paranormal threats.

In 1947 earth would receive more visitors from the future in the shape of the Planet Express crew.

In the 31st century, the Planet Express crew had been watching a supernova from a safe distance, but sadly a mistake from Philip J Fry whilst working a microwave released radiation into the supernova, which created a rip in the time vortex that hurled the Planet Express ship backwards in time to the year 1947, where it crashed just outside Roswell.

An alien member of the crew, Doctor Zoidberg was captured by the military who proceeded to dissect him alive! Zoidberg however not only survived, but also due to his tremendous alien constitution, wasn’t even hurt. (In fact he had quite a nice time, and even annoyed his captors by talking too much.)

Zoidberg would be rescued by Turanga Leela and Philip J Fry (who went as far as to throw several of Zoidbergs organs in the Presidents face!) During the time travellers stay in the past, Philip J Fry would sleep with a woman named Mildred, who he later discovered (much to his horror) was in fact his grandmother!

This resulted in Fry being his fathers father, and his own grandfather! The resulting mutation that would come from this would render Fry the only creature in N-Space to lack the delta brainwave (a feature which all animals and even robots possess), which made him the only creature in the entire universe immune to the power of the Brain Spawn.

The Planet Express crew managed to escape through the rip in the time vortex back to the 31st century before it sealed shut. Bender however, a robot was left behind, but he was buried underground and the military were unable to find him. He would remain under the ground for 1000 years, all alone, though he didn’t seem to mind. The Planet Express crew would find him in the 31st century and dig him out.

Sadly the Planet Express’ trip to the past would not be without consequences. This had been an alien incursion unlike any other in recent history. The likes of Fenric and Light had happened in remote areas and been covered up, but this incursion was against the government itself who had been left utterly helpless against one alien spaceship. The President had almost choked to death on an aliens gallbladder!

Majestic, a secret organisation, designed to find and destroy alien, and paranormal threats to America (and keep their existence hidden) was founded in 1947 not long after the “Roswell incident”.

Over the next decade however Majestic would develop branches all over the world. (In Britain Department Q was seen as not equipped for dealing with extraterrestrial threats.)

Under the guidance of Silhouette, the head of the American branch, they  became somewhat independent of the governments they supposedly worked for. Silhouette actually intended to overrun the world, by salvaging pieces of alien technology from subsequent alien incursions.

Majestic would stop a few genuine alien threats to the earth, but they soon began to capture benevolent alien invaders too, and used the creatures technology to slowly build up weapons that could allow them to conquer the earth. By the end of the 50s Majestic were almost ready to begin their plans.

Their single greatest weapon was a robot over 50 feet tall, capable of smashing buildings and was equipped with a gigantic laser capable of cutting through solid steal! This robot needed a human brain to power it however, and it Silhouette would later choose that of the President himself after his death at Crypto’s hands in the 50s.

1950s

Image result for Godzilla

In the year 1950, celebrated war hero Dan Dare would be abducted by a Treen spacecraft. The Mekon frequently monitored the earth to make sure humanity were not a threat. Now and again they would take live specimens for experimentation.

The Treen vessel that had abducted Dan however would fall through the time fissure. It would be transported almost 100 years into the future in the late 2040s. In the 20th century Dan would be presumed dead.

The 1950s would come to be known as the first golden age of monsters. Man’s experiments with nuclear power would awaken and mutate several of the Silurians Dinosaurs, buried deep beneath the earth. Many of these Dinosaurs (along with the Silurians who were preserved alongside them) would simply be killed by mankind’s experiments with nuclear power, but others not only survived, but due to already mutated metabolism would absorb the radiation into their bodies and become far more powerful than ever before.

The golden age of monsters would be kicked off by the revival of an ancient predator known as a Rhedosaurus.

Rhedosaurus was one of the first meat eating Dinosaurs ever to evolve. It bore many similarities to the Dinosaurs Archosaurian ancestors, and was possibly the only quadroped meat eating Dinosaur.

Rhedosaurus had gone extinct towards the end of the Triassic period, but the Silurians had revived them towards the end of the Cretaceous period through their cloning technology and just as with other Dinosaur species they mutated them until they grew larger and more powerful.

Rhedosaurus normally grew to 30 feet long, and could weigh in at over 2 tons. The Silurians mutant Rhedosaurus was close to 150 foot long and over 90 tons in weight.

One of the Rhedosaurus, the largest and most powerful, had gone rogue however. Like all of the Silurians mutated Dinosaurs, it’s intelligence was greatly increased, but in this instance it broke free from their control and went on a massive rampage, killing other mutant Dinosaurs and destroying the largest Silurian city in the process.

The Rhedosaurus would be driven away by other mutated Dinosaurs to the antarctic to recover. The Antarctic was the only place on earth the Silurians didn’t spread too as it was too cold, though the Rhedosaurus with its mutated metabolism was able to survive.

The Rhedosaurus however would later be buried under an Avalanche, where it would be preserved for 65 million years until the year 1953, where the beast would be awoken by an atomic blast which further mutated the Rhedosaurus, making it grow larger and more ferocious.

The Rhedosaurus would go on a rampage first destroying a lighthouse, before surfacing in New York where it would destroy several buildings, and kill thousands of innocent people.

None of the military’s weapons would even slow the beast down and its blood also pread a plague that killed many hundreds more.

The military were finally able to destroy the Dinosaur using a special weapon, fitted with a bullet made of isotope which was able to pierce the Dinosaurs skin.

Dubbed “The Beast from 20000 Fathoms” by the press, the Rhedosaurus’ rampage was seen as a one off at the time, but barely one year later mankind would face another of the Silurians mutant Dinosaurs, one far larger and more dangerous than even the Beast itself. Godzilla!

In the year 1954, atomic testing near Odo Island would awaken the Silurians mutant T-Rex’s, and their egg, all of which had been kept in a state of suspended animation in the Silurians chambers for 65 million years under the surface of Odo Island.

The blast was not intended to get anywhere near the island, but it was more powerful than its makers had predicted and spread to the outskirts of Odo. There was a massive scandal at the time from the villagers of the island, but this would quickly be overshadowed by what was to come.

The blast not only disrupted the preservation tanks, but the radiation would also mutate both Tyrannosaurs further, causing them to grow larger, stronger and even develop the power to breath an atomic ray.

These two Tyrannosaurs had once been the mightiest of the Silurians mutants and had even defeated the Brain Spawn. They were created many thousands of years after the Rhedosaurus, when the Silurians had really perfected their cloning technology.

Of the two, the female Tyrannosaurus was the more aggressive. She decided to deal with the threat of humanity, whilst the male quickly retreated to a small nearby island with the egg to protect it until it hatched.

The female Tyrannosaurus would make her presence known to the world when she destroyed two cruise ships, before going on to attack Odo, where she would kill most of the population of the island.

The Queen of the Monsters makes her presence known to mankind.

The natives on the island would dub the mutant Tyrannosaurus, Godzilla, which the rest of humanity would come to know it as.

Godzilla soon made her way to mainland Japan (formerly her and her mates home) where she ravaged it. It is believed that over 2 million people were killed in the monsters rampage which dwarfed that of the Rhedosaur’s.

Godzilla was just defending her territory. As far as she was concerned, humanity were alien invaders. She didn’t recognize any of these strange, mammalian creatures who had seemingly taken the place of the Silurians, her creators, that she had served for her entire life. Furthermore she was convinced that the atomic bomb which had awoken her was an attack on her and her mate too, so Godzilla was determined to destroy all of humanity.

None of the Japanese airforce’s most advanced weapons were even able to pierce the hide of Godzilla who returned night after night to inflict more death and destruction for several weeks.

Godzilla would finally be destroyed by arguably the most devastating weapon mankind would ever create. The Oxygen Destroyer. The Oxygen Destroyer was created by Professor Serizawa, as part of a weapons project, but he came to regret its creation immediately after.

Terrified of what it would do if unleashed, Serizawa at first didn’t want to use the weapon, arguing that it would be worse than Godzilla if it fell into the wrong hands. Ultimately however as Godzilla’s rampages continued to take more lives, Serizawa would be forced to use his weapon on the Tyrannosaur.

Serizawa would burn all of his notes to prevent anyone else from discovering the formula, and deposited the weapon in the ocean where Godzilla slept. The weapon killed Godzilla, reducing her to nothing but a skeleton in a matter of minutes.

Sadly Serizawa would kill himself by cutting the cable that would have brought him to the surface after using the Oxygen Destroyer, taking its secrets to the grave.

The female Godzilla succumbs to the Oxygen Destroyer.

Whilst Japan celebrated the defeat of Godzilla, little did anyone know that the male Godzilla was still alive. It had focused on protecting the baby whilst the female attacked Japan.

When the female didn’t return, the male Godzilla would decide to remain on the Island it had fled too, scared, not for its own safety, but simply to leave its child unattended for any length of time.

The egg of the mutant Tyrannosaurus’ couple had also been affected by the radiation, and made much larger, though the egg had also been put into a form of stasis by the radiation too and wouldn’t hatch for decades.

The male Godzilla would stand watch over his unborn child, shunning humanity as much as he could.

The 1950s would also see the establishment of British Rocket Group. Using pieces of advanced alien technology (that they were able to procure from Majestic who were extremely reluctant, but couldn’t keep all of their stolen tech.) British Rocket Group hoped to send a man into space before either the Russians or the Americans.

The project was headed by Bernard Quatermass a respected British scientist (and old friend of Professor Travers.) Bernard was born in the year 1914. He was a somewhat prickly and difficult individual, who had a very unconventional style. Many who worked with him found his methods very frustrating and unpredictable.

Still those who knew him the best, knew that deep down Quatermass was a good man who worked tirelessly for the benefit of humanity.

Bernard Quatermass began his career in the 30s in Rocketry, though he also did top secret work for the government. Quatermass is believed to have helped stop the Nazi rocket programme, though he was not allowed to discuss his work with the government and remained tight lipped about it to the grave.

In 1954, not long after the female Godzilla’s rampage, Quatermass’ work would with British Rocket Group would come to fruition with the launch of the first ever manned rocket into space. Unfortunately however the rocket would go off course and later crash straight into the heart of London.

Worse still the ships only surviving passenger Victor Carroon had become infected by an alien entity whilst in space and would soon go on a rampage across London, before Bernard Quatermass himself would be forced to bring the alien mutant down in Westminster Abbey. The creatures existence would of course be covered up by Majestic.

Quatermass’ career would suffer greatly as a result of this failure, but he would later be able to redeem his reputation the next year when he was called in to help defeat another giant monster, Gamera.

The last male Gamera had remained buried under the ice, when a small nuclear explosion that crashed in the Antarctic (caused by a downed fighter jet) not only awoke Gamera, but just as with Godzilla, the radiation affected Gamera’s already mutated metabolism. It caused him to grown much larger, heal from his previous injuries, (sustained from both Ghidorah and the Treens) and develop firey breath.

Gamera however was much more badly affected than Godzilla. The pain from his mutation drove him temporarily insane and he would soon lash out at humanity. Just like Godzilla, he would attack mainland Japan and begin slaughtering its inhabitants. However Gamera did still retain some of his former moral code, and even at his lowest point, he still saved a small child during one of his rampages.

Gamera would eventually be defeated by the Z-Plan, a project headed by Bernard Quatermass himself. The Z-Plan was a giant rocket that was designed to send Gamera to a far away planet. Gamera was successfully lured to the giant rocket and then fired to Mars.

The rocket didn’t reach Mars however. It would be blown off course and circle the outer reaches of the solar system for many years. During his solitude Gamera would regain his senses, and later be desperate to atone for his mistakes during his moment of madness on earth.

Quatermass meanwhile would be hailed as a hero on earth for stopping Gamera, and would continue his work with British Rocket Group which received greater funding from the government as a result.

The next year, in 1956, Quatermass would again save humanity from an extraterrestrial menace. A group of aliens from one of Saturn’s moons had slowly begun to take over human bodies in England. Being able to communicate with one another telepathically. The aliens were a hive mind. The aliens intended to alter the earth’s atmosphere to allow them to survive without human bodies. Doing so would however wipe out almost all life on earth, but the aliens didn’t care.

They wanted earth, a much larger planet as a colony for their ever expanding population. Quatermass however was able to foil their plans by launching one of his failed, experimental rockets at the asteroid which the main invasion force had intended to use to return to earth which destroyed it, killing the aliens on earth who were all connected to those on the asteroid.

Though Quatermass had saved humanity, and made contact with an intelligent alien species, once again Majestic would cover it up from the public, much to Quatermass’ annoyance.

Quatermass despised Majestic. He didn’t think it was right to conceal the truth from the general public and (rightfully) believed that Majestic were up to something, but sadly he was never able to gather the necessary evidence to bring them down. Majestic were very good at covering their tracks.

Towards the end of 1956 another alien menace would threaten the earth, the Ymir. The Ymir was an experiment of the Mekon from Venus. The Treens had been monitoring the earth for many decades, and had grown scared by the presence of creatures like Godzilla and the Rhedosaurus. If mankind were ever able to weaponize these creatures then there was no race in the galaxy they could not conquer. The Treens grew even more anxious when they saw that mankind was planning to send its first manned rocket to Venus.

The Mekon was secretly planning to build the Treens forces up to the point where they could conquer all life forms in the galaxy. Naturally he didn’t want mankind to stumble on his plans.

The Mekon ordered that experiments be done on the giant Dinosaur like reptiles that lived within the jungles of Venus to try and create their own Godzilla and Gamera.

The Ymir would be the first attempt at creating such a beast. The Ymir was designed to grow to its full size within a matter of days. The Ymir began its life however as a kind of ooze which allowed it to latch itself onto the earth vessel when it arrived on Venus, and survive the trip through space back to earth, after which it then grew into a sentient being.

The Ymir would continue to grow until it was as big as a building within a few days. The monster would then rampage its way across Rome, even climbing the Colloseum before being shot down.

The Ymirs existence was never kept from the public, but Majestic would still lie that the creature was simply another prehistoric reptile rather than a creature from Venus.

Whilst the Ymir didn’t conquer humanity as the Mekon had hoped, it still stopped mankind from sending more rockets or space probes to Venus for the next couple of decades. In the meantime the Mekon would order his men to create another Ymir, albeit larger and more powerful.

In 1957 yet another of the Silurians mutant Dinosaurs would be awoken by an atomic blast, an Anklyosaurus that would come to be known as Anguirus.

Angurius much like Gamera would briefly be driven insane by the pain of his mutation. He was awoken on an island not too far from Odo where the first two Godzilla’s had been mutated, and instinctively headed there.

Odo Island had 65 million years ago once been home to the Silurian’s main laboratory where they created most of their Dinosaurs (hence why the two hero Tyrannosaurs would be chosen to buried under there.)

Anguirus at this point didn’t even remember his old life, his mind was so frazzled by the radiation, but he headed there on instinct.

Before Anguirus made it to the island however he encountered the surviving male Godzilla. Ironically the two mutant Dinosaurs had fought alongside one another during the time of the Silurians, but now Anguirus didn’t even recognize its former friend it was so insane.

Though Godzilla did recognize Anguirus, he didn’t care about their former partnership either, as the first thing Anguirus did was viciously attack Godzilla and later follow him back to his island where his son was (who had still not hatched from his egg!) Thus Anguirus was now perceived as a threat by the male Godzilla to his child and had to be destroyed.

In their first battle both fell back into the ocean after wounding one another, but Anguirus soon escaped and headed for Japan, which had been its homeland. Godzilla followed him there however, determined to finish off this new enemy, and the two monsters had their second fight across Osako which ended in a victory for Godzilla who was able to overpower the mutated Anklyosaur with a bite to the neck, after which he then burned the monsters body with his firey breath, seemingly killing Anguirus.

Anguirus however survived, but his body was placed into a state of suspended animation whilst it would heal. The process would take 20 years, during which time Anguirus’ body would sink quietly to the ocean floor. Its irradiated nature prevented any animals from scavenging the corpse whilst it healed.

Godzilla puts Anguirus out of action for two decades.

Godzilla returned to the island he had taken his son to, but the Japanese government became terrified at the idea of another Godzilla being on the loose after the female’s rampage a few years earlier. The Japanese air force would send in several planes to try and stop Godzilla. Whilst their weapons were incapable of even hurting mutant Tyrannosaur, they were still able to defeat the monster by causing an avalanche on the island which buried both the male and its egg under several thousand tons of ice. Godzilla and its offspring would both remain trapped under the ice for close to 30 years afterwards.

The following year mankind would have to deal with yet another mutant Dinosaur’s rampage. This time it would be London that would be the victim of one of the Silurians former pets.

The monster in question was in fact the Brontosaurus that Challenger had brought back to London, 30 years ago. The Brontosaurus had swum back out to sea from the Thames, but it had been unable to reach its home and simply came to live on a small, mostly uninhabited island off the coast of France.

Unfortunately however a French nuclear bomb test would strike the island the Brontosaurus had chosen as its home and mutate the monster. The Brontosaurus was not quite the same as the two Tyrannosaurs who became the two Godzillas or the Rhedosaurus. Those three monsters had been designed by the Silurians to be bigger, stronger and smarter than any Dinosaur could ever be, and so when they were caught in the atomic blast, their bodies could absorb the radiation easily, though not without being mutated further.

The Brontosaurus meanwhile was closer to being just a normal Dinosaur. It had still been cloned by the Silurians however, as the Brontosaurus had died out long before the Silurians had evolved, and so its DNA was still somewhat more resilient than that of a normal Dinosaur, allowing it to absorb the some of the radiation from the blast, which much like Godzilla would mutate it and cause it to grow even larger.

The Brontosaurus’ mutation however would be far more unstable, and the creature slowly began to die. In its death throes the Brontosaurus would make its way back to Britain (with its new home having been laid waste.)

The Brontosaurus would go on another massive rampage across London, killing several hundred thousand people and destroying many buildings before it sunk back into the ocean where it finally succumbed to the radiation and died.

The mutant Brontosaurus rampages its way across London. Dubbed The Giant Behemoth by the press, it was mistaken at the time due to its size as a Paleosaurus, a gigantic marine reptile with a similar body plan. An examination of its skeleton retrieved from the ocean floor showed that its was a Bronotsaurus however. 

The two final prehistoric creatures to be awoken during this decade where two  Pteranodon’s, who would come to be named Rodan.

These two mutant Pteranodons were originally created by the Silurians to combat spaceships from invaders. They were among the most effective of the Silurians mutants.

A small family of the Pteranodons had been preserved under a mountain. A male, a female and an unhatched egg. Just like the Tyrannosaur family, their underground chambers were hit by an atomic bomb which not only awoke the two Pteranodon’s but further mutated them, causing the two Pterosaurs to grow much larger and become far more powerful.

The Pteranodons who would dubbed Rodan’s by the press would go on a rampage just as Godzilla, Gamera and the Rhedosaurus had done before them.

Both creatures however would be killed when the military caused the volcano the two beasts were resting under to erupt. The male Rodan was the first to be consumed in the fire whilst the female Rodan, after failing to save her mate would quickly join him in death.

Little did the military know however, the egg, which had also been mutated would hatch. Protected from the lava, as it was still in the Silurians base, the baby Rodan would flee once the lava that killed its parents died down. It flew across the world, eventually finding a nest in a small secluded island.

The beast would remain hidden from humanity for close to 30 years whilst it matured. It finally would return to Japan in the late 80s, looking for more members of its kind, where it would eventually come into conflict with Godzilla, though more on that later.

The death of the two Rodan’s for many signalled the end of the golden age of monsters.

After the two Rodan’s rampage, protective measures would be taken to ensure that no more Godzilla’s and Rodan’s could ever be created. Not only would there be fewer atomic tests carried out, but the ground beneath and the immediate area would always be scanned by Majestic first to make sure there were no creatures buried beneath.

These measures would by and large prove successful, though there would still be a few more mutants created through careless testing such as Barugon, a mutant Triceratops in 1965. Still overall mankind would take greater care to avoid the same mistakes, though sadly not all of the previous monsters they had created were gone for good as they would later discover.

As the 50s drew to a close a bigger menace than Godzilla, the Rhedosaurus and Gamera combined would make its way towards earth. The Furon empire.

The Furons were at the height of their power in the 1950s. Their empire covered multiple galaxies, their weaponry was at its most advanced and various physical and mental augmentations had improved their mental abilities to unprecedented levels. Still despite this the Furons cloning technology was beginning to fail them after several thousand years.

Each time they cloned one of their warriors, the cells would become slightly degraded. Whilst this didn’t cause any immediate problems for the Furons, their scientists worked out that eventually over the course of the next few generations, the cells would continue to degenerate, making the clones more and more erratic and unstable, both physically and mentally until they could no longer clone themselves.

In order to prevent this, the Furons would need to find some uncorrupted pure Furon DNA, to revitalize the gene pool for future clones.

Orthopox 12 one of the empires leading scientists discovered by looking through the Furon history records that a group of pre clone Furons had settled on earth after the Martian war. The Furons had mated with the early humans (at that stage the human race’s numbers had dwindled after the Treen invasion) to the point where Orthopox believed that almost every single human being carried a trace of Furon DNA in their bodies.

Orthopox would lead a top secret mission to the planet. He didn’t want to launch a public invasion in case any of the Furons many enemies found out why they were there and tried to destroy the earth.

None of their enemies or indeed the Furon population at large could be allowed to know that their race was in such great danger, and that humanity was possibly their only hope.

Orthopox would only take one Furon warrior, Crypto 136 to help him harvest the human DNA. One Furon soldier would seemingly be all he would need.

Crypto 136 was captured by Majestic however, who after dissecting him, would harvest the Furon technology to build more advanced weapons.

With Silhouette’s plans to conquer humanity now almost ready, she was determined to finish the Furon invasion force and war broke out between Crypto 137 (the replacement of Crypto 136) and Majestic in America.

Despite Majestics experience with battling aliens however, they were completely outmatched by Crypto 137 who slaughtered his way through Majestics forces, destroyed their super weapon Robo Prez, and personally killed Silhouette in a duel.

Silhouette’s plans for global domination come to a pitiful end when all of Majestics attempts to beat back the Furons are crushed.

Following Silhouette’s death Crypto would, using his shapeshifting powers assume the President’s (who he had also assassinated earlier) identity, covering up the Furon’s invasion and shutting down the last of the American branch of Majestic’s operations. He would then set up a device to harness Furon DNA from people all over America. Most of the victims were unharmed, though a few were killed and their brainstems were harvested for Orthopox’s experiments.

As the 50s drew to a close with mankind having survived multiple attacks from giant mutant Dinosaurs and with an alien now in the White House, it was obvious that things would never be the same for mankind again.

1960s

Throughout the first half of the 60s Majestic would slowly begin to lose all of their influence all over the world. Following the destruction of the American branch, which was the centre of their power, the other branches remained disconnected and separate.

This made them vulnerable to attack and very soon Majestic would come into conflict with the Blisk, when the Blisk began to put their plans into action. The Blisk would wipe out all but the British branch, which would be a mere shell of its former self by the end of the 60s.

Still throughout most of the 60s Majestic would have enough influence to cover up other extraterrestrial visitations and incursions in the UK.

Crypto 137 would die in an accident in 1961. Following his death, John F Kennedy would become the President. Orthopox and Crypto 138 were relieved to not have to constantly deal with the responsibility of having Crypto pose as the President. They felt that it was drawing too much attention to their activities, so they would both lay low for the next few years whilst Orthopox continued his experiments.

Towards the end of 1961, a space capsule crashed into the Nevada dessert. The capsule had in fact been sent by the Mesrak’s and contained information on the full history of D-Space. The translation circuits were not damaged in the crash, and so when the American government took the capsule in and examined it they were able to learn the full story of this alternate universe. One of the men who worked on the project, Gene Roddenberry, would later use the information as the basis of a television series, Star Trek in 1966.

Star Trek went on to become one of the most beloved and iconic television series of N-Space. Such was its popularity that a religion would even develop around the show in the far future. Little did anyone know however that it was actually based on a true story.

The government were happy for Roddenberry to use the history of D-Space as the basis for Star Trek as it helped to hide the capsule (whose crash had made the news.) From the public as it convinced them it was all fiction.

Two years on in 1963 the First Doctor and Susan would land on earth, in London. It was at Susan’s request. She had developed a particular fondness for the earth and humanity and wanted to spend more time among them in her favorite century.

The Doctor meanwhile had important business to deal with. He had stolen an object from the Time Lords before he left as a safety measure in case they came after him. The Hand of Omega, a powerful stellar manipulator which the founder of the Time Lords had used in his earliest experiments.

The Doctor however had noticed that another time vessel had been pursuing him through the vortex. At first he was worried it was the Time Lords, but he soon realized that they were homing in on the Hand of Omega. Whatever these creatures were they wanted it.

Knowing that he couldn’t let it fall into anyone’s hands, the Doctor tried to hide the Hand of Omega, but as a safety measure he programmed it to destroy anyone who tried to use it except for him. The Doctor decided to hide the Hand of Omega on earth, with it being, as far as he knew, a quiet unassuming planet. The Doctor felt sure no one would ever find it there.

Whilst the Doctor only intended to be on earth for a short while in order to programme the hand, Susan became so attached to the earth that she insisted on staying and even enrolled at a local school, Coal Hill School.

Meanwhile in America more time travellers from the future would arrive to inadvertently create havoc on the timeline.

These time travellers came from over 3 million years in the future. They were Arnold J Rimmer, Dave Lister, The Cat, and Kryten.

The travellers had become lost in deep space, and longed to return to earth. After having found a machine that could allow them to travel in both time and space, the foursome intended to finally go home.

Unfortunately Kryten would inadvertently send them to Dallas 1963, in the book depository, just as Lee Harvey Oswald was about to shoot John F Kennedy.

In the original timeline, Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy from the depository killing him instantly, but when Rimmer, Lister, the Cat and Kryten beamed in, they accidentally knocked Oswald out of the window before he could shoot Kennedy.

Thus history was changed and Kennedy never died. One year later in 1964, President Kennedy was impeached for sharing a mistress with Mafia boss, Sam Giancana. It was the biggest scandal in American history. Kennedy was sentenced to three years in an open prison in July, ’65. J. Edgar Hoover then became president; he was forced to run by the mob, who had pictures of him at a transvestite orgy.

Soon after his election, the USSR were allowed to install a nuclear base in Cuba in return for Mafia cocaine trafficking between Cuba and the States. With a Soviet nuclear base 30 miles from the US mainland, people fled from all the major cities.

Realizing their mistake the Dwarfers travelled backwards in time to try and set history on the correct course. They arrived before their future selves, and made sure that Oswald would be sent to a higher level of the building, but unfortunately Oswald missed. With there being no other levels of the building for him to make the shot, the Dwarfers decided that a second gunman would have to fire from behind the Grassy Knoll.

With none of them wanting to murder Kennedy themselves, Dave Lister would travel to the year 1965 and speak with President Kennedy himself. He succeeded in convincing the disgraced President to sacrifice his life to restore history,  and Kennedy travelled backwards to 1963 with the Dwarfers, and shot himself from the grassy knoll, before fading from time.

With history set on the correct course, the Dwarfers returned to their own time (though not before giving Lister a well deserved beating after all the trouble he had caused them, by forcing them to go backwards in time in the first place.)

Kennedy secures his place in history.

The day after Kennedy’s assassination, on the other side of the pond in England, two school teachers named Ian and Barbara would encounter a man that would change their lives forever, the Doctor.

Susan’s behaviour at Coal Hill School had become more erratic in the last few months. She was obviously a promising student, but at times she would talk about historical events as though she were actually there, make strange predictions about the future, and even talk about time travel.

Ian and Barbara became worried that there was something wrong with her personally and decided to speak with her parents. On the 23rd of November, they followed Susan home to totters lane.

To their surprise it was a junkyard and when they entered all they found was a police telephone box, with Susan nowhere to be found.

The two teachers were soon confronted by an old man, with long flowing white hair, a cane, and dressed in somewhat old fashioned Victorian clothes and a cape.

The strange, somewhat grumpy old man demanded they leave, but when they heard Susan’s voice coming from the box, Ian and Barbara rushed into it.

To their shock, they discovered the police box was bigger on the inside than the outside.

The old man, who referred to himself as the Doctor explained to Ian and Barbara that he and Susan were aliens from a far away planet, and that the police box was capable of travelling to any planet at any point in its history. Susan called it the TARDIS, which stood for Time and Relative Dimensions in Space.

The Doctor explained that the TARDIS also had the power to change its outside shape in order to blend into its surroundings, whilst the inside would always remain the same size. It has assumed the form of a police box, which were common at that time.

The Doctor told Susan that either Ian and Barbara would have to go with them, or that he and Susan would have to leave the earth, in order to prevent the presence of aliens being discovered in the 1960s, which would damage the timeline of humanity.

Susan however having grown fond of earth so much said that she would rather leave the TARDIS instead. The Doctor not wanting to lose his grand daughter, simply took off with Ian and Barbara still on board.

In the resulting struggle the TARDIS would crash land on prehistoric earth where it would be damaged slightly. The device which allow it to change shape on the outside, the Chamelion circuit was broken and so the Doctors TARDIS would permanently be stuck in the form of Police Box. (The Doctor would attempt to fix it a few times, but he would soon grow accustomed to the police box form and decide to keep the TARDIS in this shape.)

Naturally things were difficult on board the TARDIS at first between the Doctor, Ian and Barbara, but over time the two would have a positive effect on the mysterious alien who would soften up and eventually became a hero battling against evils such as the Daleks.

The Doctor would also later try and make up for his mistake and try and get Ian and Barbara back to their own time.

A few days after Ian and Barbara’s disappearance Coal Hill School would soon be made the base for another, but much more sinister alien presence. The Daleks.

The Daleks were actually the creatures who had been following the First Doctor in an attempt to steal the Hand of Omega. The First Doctor had no idea of course. He hadn’t even met the Daleks at that point. After the First Doctor left earth with Ian, Barbara and Susan, he was desperate to try and get back to 1963 to fix the problem. Sadly however he couldn’t pilot the TARDIS that well at that point in his life and it wouldn’t be until 1966 that he would arrive back in London.

After dealing with Wotan in 66, the Doctor discovered a message left by his future incarnation telling him that he had dealt with the aliens and sent the hand of omega home. Satisfied with this the Doctor wouldn’t bother with the Hand of Omega for many years to come, until he was in his Seventh incarnation.

The Seventh Doctor centuries later from the Doctors perspective, whilst travelling through the vortex, noticed a massive disturbance in the year 1963 near the planet earth, which was in reality the Dalek mothership heading towards the planet in search of the Hand of Omega.

The Doctor realized that the Daleks were the aliens who pursued him all those years ago in his first incarnation, and headed towards earth. If the Daleks managed to get hold of the Hand of Omega it could make them as powerful as the Time Lords, allowing them to decimate all of creation. The defences the First Doctor left around the Hand of Omega would not be enough to deter a race as advanced as the Daleks. The Seventh Doctor however had learned so much more about the Daleks and their weaknesses since, so he would have a better chance of tricking them.

When the Seventh Doctor arrived back in Totters lane however mere days after his first incarnation had left, he discovered that there were in fact two groups of Daleks after the Hand. The renegade faction who were led by the Supreme Dalek and the imperial faction who followed the Emperor (in reality, Davros.)

Both had established bases in London and had various human minions searching for the Hand of Omega. The Imperial Daleks had taken control of the head master in Coal Hill School, having implanted a device in his head which allowed them to control him. The renegades meanwhile were aided by Mr Ratcliff, a former Nazi collaborator who was drawn to the Daleks similar xenophobic ideology. Of course as always, once the Daleks had no further use for these servants, they disposed of them all.

The renegade Daleks most useful human servant however would be a little girl named Jasmine. The monsters regularly used children as components of their battle computers. A child, under their control, with its intelligence advanced by their experiments, could help the Daleks overcome their reliance on logic.

Though the Daleks were motivated by an irrational hatred of other life forms, they still always looked on solving their problems from a purely logical perspective (as they had no other emotions aside from hatred.) Jasmine was just the latest unfortunate child to be used to overcome this weakness.

The renegade Daleks killed Jasmine’s family not long after they arrived in London, and abducted her to use in their plans. Their murder as well as what happened to Jasmine would of course later be covered up by Majestic.

Whilst the two Dalek factions fought, the Doctor quickly reprogrammed the Hand of Omega. The renegade Daleks managed to find the Hand of Omega first however, as despite their smaller numbers they initially had the upper hand in their conflict.

The Doctor, not wanting the renegades who wouldn’t fall for his trap to get the Hand, sabotaged their time vessel, leaving them trapped on earth long enough for the Imperials to regroup.

Now aided by a special weapons Dalek, the Imperials wiped out the entire renegade faction except for the supreme Dalek, who quickly managed to escape.

The Daleks war with one another across the streets of London in 1963. Though the renegades had the upper hand at first, the Imperials soon won the conflict with the aid of the special weapons Dalek.

The Imperials, under Davros’ command tried to use the Hand of Omega to turn Skaro’s sun into a source of unlimited power similar to the Eye of Harmony on Gallifrey, but thanks to the 7th Doctors machinations, it instead caused Skaro’s sun to explode, vaporizing the planet into nothing. It then destroyed the Dalek mothership (though Davros unknown to the Doctor escaped.) The Hand of Omega, following the Doctors orders then returned safely to Gallifrey.

The Doctor would then corner the Dalek supreme where he convinced the monster to kill itself, by lying to it that it was the last of its kind. As soon as the Dalek killed itself, Jasmine would be freed from its influence. Sadly her mind was completely broken, and she would spend the next 15 years in an institution. Even when she regained her senses, and spoke of metal monsters controlling her, everyone naturally thought she was still insane.

After leaving the institution, she would later track down information about other extra terrestrial incursions and paranormal incidents and tried to hunt them down herself. The Dalek knowledge remained in her mind. Normally after a child had served its purpose in the battle computer then the Daleks would simply dispose of them. Here however because the black Dalek had killed itself, Jasmine was able to retain some of its knowledge.

This would allow her to build Dalek weaponry and technology to a limited extent which would enable her to face various alien invaders and monsters herself, saving the earth many times in secret. Jasmine would whilst stopping an alien incursion, later come face to face with the Tenth Doctor. She would subsequently join him and become one of his longest serving and closest companions, with the Doctor serving as a replacement parent figure for the young girl.

The British branch of Majestic had not been able to deal with the Dalek invasion. Instead their efforts were as always focused on the Blisk, but they did provide a suitable cover up for the Dalek battles that had waged across the streets of London.

Towards the end of 1963 earth would have to deal with yet another alien incursion, this time from its past.

In early December of that year Doctor Matthew Roney uncovered what appeared to be human remains from several million years ago beneath Hobbs lane (an area rife with supposed ghost and Demon sightings), alongside what appeared to be a strange missile.

The military believed it to simply be an unexploded bomb left over from World War 2, but Roney suspected there was more to this strange artefact.

Roney contacted his old friend Bernard Quatermass, and the two discovered that the missile was in fact a space craft, complete with the fossilised skeletons of several Insectoids inside it.

Bernard Quatermass was eventually able to deduce through experiments and research into the area’s history that a psychic projection of these aliens had remained (explaining the areas history of ghost and Demon sightings.) He also discovered that the aliens had imprinted their own DNA into that of early human beings through experiments, giving some humans telepathic abilities.

Quatermass theorized that in early times the humans with the alien genes instinctively hunted those without them. Quatermass believed that this may have accounted for many of humanity’s violent actions towards one another throughout our history.

The military did not believe Quatermass’ wild theory, and planned to unveil the canister, which they still believed to be a Nazi weapon of some kind. Quatermass warned them that the machine could still, if powered, provoke humans with the alien genes to become violent towards those without them.

When the machine was unveiled, the power cables used to hold it up, ended up recharging it, causing the machine to influence the modern day descendants of the humans infected with alien genes to begin attacking the other humans of the city. Even Quatermass briefly began to attack Doctor Roney. The machine also began to project images of the Insectoids which looked like Demons above London sky.

Quatermass after regaining his senses aided Doctor Roney in shutting down the Insectoids machine preventing there from being mass slaughter in the streets of London. Sadly however Doctor Roney was vaporized as the ship blew itself up.

Following the destruction of the Insectoid vessel, Bernard Quatermass would broadcast a message detailing the truth about the Insectoids origins and warning humanity not to give into their base instincts or else earth will one day end up a dead world like Mars.

Quatermass’ message was broadcast live, but he was not originally intended to reveal the truth. The British government, working with Majestic had prepared a cover story of it being a secret weapon the Nazis had developed to try and control the British public. Quatermass, a then respected scientist was to read out the false explanation to the British public to give it more credibility.

Quatermass refused to give into their lies however and wanted to warn humanity about their true origins. After the broadcast, the public went wild, with people who had been controlled being accused of being aliens. There were more riots in the streets (they would come to be nicknamed the Martian riots by the press.) Quatermass did not feel guilty however. As awful as it may have seemed now, he felt that it would be better if humanity knew that it was not alone and could prepare for the next alien visitation.

Eventually Majestic and the government together were able to discredit Quatermass in public and spread their cover story that it was an unused Nazi weapon. The public eventually bought it, and Quatermass’ reputation was destroyed. He would also be blacklisted and not work for almost the rest of the 60s whilst Majestic still existed. He would suffer a mental breakdown and later be forced to move in with his daughter Paula and her husband to make ends meet.

Though Quatermass’ career would recover in the 70s, the rest of the decade would be a dark time for him.

At the start of 1965, another highly respected scientist’s career would be tarnished when he discovered something that mankind was not yet ready to accept. Doctor Mafune, discovered what appeared to be a gigantic marine Dinosaur. The creature was in fact one of the Silurians mutated Dinosaurs, a Spinosaurus that had been awoken and further mutated by nuclear testing. This monster however unlike Godzilla was content to live at the bottom of the ocean and was extremely elusive, making it difficult for Doctor Mafune to try and get proof of the monsters existence. Many accused Mafune of simply trying to cash in on the recent monster craze.

Later when Mafune developed a device that he believed would allow him to control not only the large Spinosaurid that he had dubbed Titanosaurus, but marine life in general. Mafune’s ideas were dismissed and his career ended up in ruins.

Later in 1965 Ian and Barbara, after travelling through time and space with the Doctor for two years would successfully land back on earth, after the Doctor was able to help them pilot a stolen Dalek time machine back to 60s London.

Towards the end of 1965, another earthling, lost in space would finally make its way back to its home planet. Gamera!

After drifting aimlessly in Quatermass’ rocket for nearly a whole decade. Gamera would be freed by a passing asteroid which destroyed the rocket. Gamera subsequently fall back onto earth where having regained his senses, the giant beast was desperate to make amends.

He would soon get a chance when he came into conflict with a gigantic reptillian monster called Barugon.

Barugon had been created by the Mekon on Venus. With it being yet another attempt by the Venusian to rival the monsters of earth such as Godzilla, Barugon much like the Ymir would start out as a small creature and then rapidly grow until it reached a gigantic size. Barugon however was far more powerful than even the Ymir, and had the ability to freeze other life forms with its breath.

The Mekon sent Barugon to the planet to conquer humanity, and destroy any of its giant monsters that may still exist.

When Barugon first faced Gamera, he easily defeated the giant turtle and froze him before rampaging across Japan. The military however would manage to hold Barugon off long enough for Gamera to unthaw himself after which Gamera finally defeated the Venusian monster by drowning him in lake Biwa.

Gamera would continue to protect the earth throughout the rest of the 60s. Though the military would make more attempts to capture him, in time the public would come to see Gamera as a hero.

Gamera would the following year in 1966 face one of his deadliest enemies, the winged terror known as Gyaos.

One of the Gyaos that had been experimented on by the Atlanteans and preserved under the earth was awoken by an exploding Volcano, which disrupted its incubation chambers. Gamera would soon be drawn to the area (remembering where the monster had been imprisoned) and the two monsters would have many battles with one another across all of Japan.

Gamera however was finally able to defeat the Gyaos whose body had been altered by the Atlantean’s experiments. Not only had its skin turned brown, but it was also made more sensitive to light, which Gamera was able to exploit to ultimately destroy Gyaos.

Earth would face another more homegrown threat in 1966, in the form of WOTAN, an artifical intelligence.

WOTAN had rebelled against its master however and sought to enslave humanity to maintain it. It constructed near invincible War Machines to wage war against humanity, and the monsters took to the streets of London.

The First Doctor was able to capture and reprogramme one of the War Machines which he then sent to destroy WOTAN’s head quarters, shutting down all of its machines in the process.

After the Doctor defeated WOTAN, and checked the status of the Hand of Omega, he would receive a message from his grand daughter Susan in the future. In the 22nd century, the Doctors grand daughter Susan had married David and had two children with him, John and Gillian. After helping humanity rebuild after the Dalek invasion. Susan eventually left in disgust at how corrupt humanity had become. Unfortunately as she and David went exploring the galaxy together with their children, the Daleks would soon track her down.

These Daleks were from far in the future, and they were desperate to find a Time Lord and torture them for information (at this point in their history the Daleks were locked in a conflict with the Time Lords.)

The Daleks were able to track Susan down after looking through their history records. Susan had become a famous figure in human history, though after her disappearance, many had suspected she was an alien, and the Daleks, knowing that the Doctor had travelled with a grand daughter, and had been there at the end of the Dalek invasion, were able to work out who she really was.

Susan and her family were caught completely unaware by the monsters, and sadly David was exterminated. Susan however managed to escape, and using the Daleks own time travel equipment, she sent John and Gillion through time to the 20th century, a period where she knew her grandfather would be.

Susan had intended to go with them, but unfortunately she had to hold the Daleks off whilst her two children escaped, so she gave them a message to give to the Doctor. The last sight John and Gillian would see of their grandmother would be a Dalek shooting her. They believed she had died, but in truth the Daleks had simply stunned Susan.

Susan would endure months of agonizing torture at the Daleks hands, whilst her two children arrived back in the 60s. Meeting up with their grandfather, the Doctor was heartbroken when they told him what had happened to Susan and he hoped to honour his granddaughter by looking after her children. The three would go on many adventures throughout time and space together. John and Gillian would simply refer to the Doctor as their grandfather, when he was in fact their great grandfather.

After many years of adventures with the First Doctor, John and Gillian’s travels would come to an end, when the First Doctor came into conflict with his old enemy the Celestial Toymaker.

The Celestial Toymaker was a powerful godlike Demon, created by the Anti God millions of years ago. He had been one of the Anti God’s favourite children, and had been greatly spoiled by the Anti God, causing him to develop a somewhat bratty, childlike persona. After the Anti God’s imprisonment, the Toymaker focused more on simply amusing himself, albeit often at the cost of innocent lives and even whole worlds.

The Toymaker had faced the Doctor before, with the Doctor being the only person who had ever managed to outwit him leaving the Toymaker humiliated and eager for revenge. The Toymaker managed to capture the Doctor and his two great grandchildren for a rematch. Wanting a challenge, but at the same time not wanting to lose, the Toymaker decided to keep the two children with their advanced intellects as his playmates, and sent the Doctor (after the Doctor beat him at his own game again) in his TARDIS back to 1960s London, to a second after he had left with John and Gillian. He then wiped the Doctors memory of Susan’s “death”, and of John and Gillian.

With his memories gone, the Doctor was back in 1966, believing he had just defeated WOTAN, and waiting outside the TARDIS for Dodo (who had decided to leave him.) The Doctor would then take on Ben and Polly, two young Londoners who had helped him during the WOTAN incident as his companions.

At the same time as the Doctor was defeating WOTAN, two other alien races would visit the planet.

One of the visitors was a group of renegade shapeshifters who wanted to use captured humans to serve as duplicates of themselves (by fusing the human captives with their own DNA, which would allow them shapeshift into the aliens form) to prevent being captured. The Second Doctor would foil their plan however and free the aliens prisoners.

The other visitors meanwhile where the Doctors archenemies, the Daleks, who were operating in the center of London. These Daleks were from an earlier point in the monsters history than those who had faced the Seventh Doctor in 1963. These Daleks were actually working through their human servant Professor Edward Waterfield.

Waterfield himself had come from the 19th century, but his experiments with time travel had created a portal to the Daleks home planet. The Daleks, who at this stage were desperate, and without their own time travel equipment, burst into Waterfield’s house and captured his daughter Victoria. The monsters threatened to kill Victoria unless her father helped them find the Doctor. Waterfield would capture the Doctors TARDIS in 60s London after having tracked him down, and used it to lure the Time Lord and his companion Jamie McCrimmon across London into a trap, after which he then brought them both to the 19th century.

There Daleks would force the Doctor to conduct experiments to try and isolate the human factor from their human captives. The Daleks believed that humanity had always beaten them because of some special factor that allowed them to over the Daleks, cold and logical personality. The Daleks wished to try and weaponize it.

Though the Doctors experiments were successful, and he even created three humanized Daleks, the Daleks would later whisk the Doctor, Jamie, Edward Waterfield, Victoria and another of their human pawns, Theodore Maxtible (who helped Waterfield create the time machine) back to Skaro, where the Emperor of the Daleks abandoned the experiments with the human factor.

Instead the Emperor now wanted the Doctor to use the same technology to isolate the Dalek factor, which makes the Daleks, xenophobic, and ruthless. The Emperor wanted the Doctor to infect humanity with the Dalek factor, and spread it like a virus throughout the history of earth, wiping humanity from existence.

The Doctor however instead was able to spread the human factor among the Dalek population which caused several Daleks to develop human emotions and turn on and exterminate the xenophobic and ruthless Daleks. A civil war broke out between the two factions which very nearly wiped the Dalek race out! Sadly Edward Waterfield (along with Maxtible) was killed during the war, though the Doctor promised a dying Edward to look after Victoria and the Doctor, Victoria and Jamie would escape Skaro in the TARDIS.

At the end of 1966, the Second Doctor, Jamie, Ben and Polly would visit one of the last two remaining outposts of Atlantis. They soon discovered that they weren’t the only visitors from the surface world however.

Professor Zaroff, a genius scientist from the surface had arrived in Atlantis many years prior. He had been instantly accepted by its people, as he helped to deal with a famine crisis.

Zaroff was now working on an experiment which he claimed could allow Atlantis to refloat. In truth however Zaroff was planning to use Atlantis’ technology to drain all of the waters of the earth into its core, causing an explosion that would destroy the entire planet. Zaroff had been driven completely insane by the death of his wife and children.

The Doctor was able to foil Zaroff’s plan, but unfortunately Zaroff’s actions would still cause the destruction of Atlantis. Still the Doctor was able to help its people escape in time.

The Atlanteans despite the Doctors help, came to view all surface dwellers as evil after Zaroff’s actions, and believed that they would have to destroy them before they could return to the surface.

These Atlanteans would come to settle in the remains of the other remaining Atlantean outpost, which contained the preserved bodies of more advanced Atlantean’s as well as their giant monsters, Megalon, the Gyaos, and Manda. It would take them decades to revive the other Atlanteans and their monsters, (as these Atlanteans had descended into primitives) but when they did they would both launch attacks against mankind.

In 1967 Gamera would face another of the evil Mekon’s monsters. The Mekon managed to create a group of smaller Treen mutants that could merge together into a super monster, which he called the Viras. The Mekon hoped that the Viras in their human form could remain hidden from Gamera and monitor the giant turtle long enough to discover his key weakness. The Viras found out about Gamera’s desire to protect children above all else, and used it to lure the giant Turtle into a trap. Ultimately however Gamera was still able to defeat Viras when he revealed his true form, by bringing the monster to the upper atmosphere of the planet where he was destroyed.

In late 1967 after several decades, the Blisk’s masterplan was ready. Crypto 138 had been installed in the White House a second time in 1966, taking the place of Johnson. Whilst Orthopox had initially been relieved to not have to deal with the responsibilities of the President. The Blisk’s agents all over the world had begun to interfere in the Furon’s activities. Orthopox believed that it was Majestic up to their old tricks, and installed Crypto in the Whitehouse a second time. Unfortunately for the Furons however, the Blisk would launch an attack on their mothership, which blew it to pieces, destroying all of their work, and seemingly killing Orthopox. Orthopox however was able to survive, by downloading his mind into a hologram unit, which fled to earth. Orthopox would be able to communicate with Crypto 138 (who barely survived an assassination attempt from the Blisk’s human agents, the KGB) with a hologram projection.

Orthopox and Crypto would track the KGB agents down to London to find out what they were really planning. Orthopox and Crypto discovered that they were turning humans into hideous mutations, and Crypto would later work with a rogue KGB agent, Natalya, and an MI6 agent Ponsomby to stop the KGB from transforming the citizens of London into monsters.

Ponsomby however would turn on Crypto and capture him. Ponsomby was in fact working for Majestic 12, and simply wanted revenge against Crypto for the death of Silhouette (who he had been in love with.) Crypto however instead managed to kill Ponsomby, and finally destroy Majestic 12 completely.

Following this Crypto and Natalya would travel to Japan where they were forced to deal with a gigantic monster created by the Blisk through experimenting with the DNA of the first now deceased female Godzilla.

Image result for original godzilla skeleton

The bones of the original female Godzilla who attacked Japan in 1954 were fished out of the bottom of the ocean by the Blisk, on the orders of their commander, who wanted to create his own giant monster from its DNA. The Blisk commander, however also wanted to make his own monster simply because he liked the film that had been made about the tragic events of 1954.

Crypto would defeat the Blisk’s giant monster, that they had even named Kojira, before he and Natalya would track the KGB down to their base in Russia. There Crypto and Orthopox discovered the awful truth, that the Blisk were behind this entire plan. They also discovered the Blisk’s plan was to launch spores from their base on the moon that would not only transform every human into Blisk, but would also irradiate the waters of earth too, and flood all of its continents.

Whilst the mothership had been destroyed, Crypto’s saucer had survived and he, Orthopox, and Natalya were able to travel to the Blisk’s moonbase where they destroyed the Blisk’s spores, and seemingly killed the last of their kind off, saving humanity.

Back on earth with the destruction of the final branch of Majestic, the government was thrown into a panic. Despite the problems Majestic had caused for the government, they were still seen as their best protection against any potential alien incursions which had grown more frequent in the last few years.

Bernard Quatermass’s brother, Martin who was a journalist, meanwhile would write a massive expose on Majestic, detailing their many crimes as well as what they had been hiding from the public. Of course just like his brother, Martin would be silenced by the government who threatened to have him blacklisted or worse unless he retracted his statements.

The British government’s fears of another alien invasion would soon come true the following year in 1968, when the Great Intelligence returned.

The Intelligence was able to enter our reality a second time when Professor Travers experimented on one of the Intelligence’s spheres he had captured after the last incursion.

Travers believed that the advanced alien technology harnessed from the Intelligence could benefit humanity, but unfortunately when he reactivated the sphere, originally used to control the Yeti robots, the Intelligence was able to use it as a bridge to re-enter our world. It would then activate the remaining Yeti robot Travers had brought back from the Himalayas, which would then go on to build several more Yeti robots.

These Yeti who were more advanced and powerful than the previous Yeti’s would quickly overrun London. Establishing a base in the London underground, Majestic’s absence were felt, as the military struggled to deal with the crisis. Many civilians were killed, as the Yeti’s were now armed with guns that fired a strong kind of webbing that instantly crushed its victims to death. The military were able to evacuate London for a few months however, with the “official” story from the government being that there was a terrorist attack.

The Intelligence had conquered London, but it knew that it couldn’t hold out for long. Its main plan wasn’t simply conquest anyway. The Intelligence hoped to lure its former enemy, the Doctor into a trap, so that it could drain the knowledge from his brain. The Doctor fascinated the Intelligence. It believed that with the Doctors knowledge it could rule the universe!

The Intelligence’s trap would succeed in luring the Second Doctor to London after which the monster, whilst possessing Professor Travers told the Doctor that it would spare his friends (who it had cornered with its Yeti), if he agreed to let it drain his mind.

The Doctor with seemingly no other choices agreed. In truth however the Doctor was planning to reverse the Intelligence’s machinery, so that he would drain its mind and destroy it.

Unfortunately just as the Doctors plan was about to go ahead, the Doctors companion Jamie, and several of the military attacked the Intelligence’s base. Whilst it was distracted they destroyed its control system which severed its link with the Yeti. Now powerless, the Intelligence retreated into space.

Though the crisis was averted, the Doctor was angry, as he could have ended the threat of the Great Intelligence once and for all. The Doctor warned the military that the Intelligence might one day return to earth before leaving in his TARDIS.

After the incident was cleared up, the government started work on setting up two new organisations to take the place of Majestic in case the Intelligence, or any other threats emerged. The organisation was designed to take the place of Majestic not just in the United Kingdom, but all over the entire world, and it would come to be known as UNIT. The UNIT branches would always be made to answer to the government unlike Majestic, to prevent them from going rogue like Majestic. It wouldn’t be until 1970 however before UNIT was properly founded.

In the meantime regular British agents would be called in to deal with more paranormal cases along with the understaffed Department Q. Many of them had already been filled in of the existence of the paranormal and Majestic, but now they would essentially have to take their place until UNIT was properly established. Many of these agents would have to learn how to use the advanced technology, salvaged from Majestic.

Many of Britain’s finest agents would be unable to cope with these new inhuman threats, but some would be so successful that even after the establishment of UNIT, they would continue to be sent on these more elaborate missions. The two most notable examples were John Steed and Emma Peel.

John Steed had worked for the British secret service for the past 10 years. He and Mrs Peel, as well as his earlier partner, Cathy Gale. had already faced a few paranormal threats, even before the final destruction of Majestic, but from 1968 on they would face more outlandish threats, including mad scientists who were able to switch their bodies with Steed and Emma Peel, a Krynoid seed that landed in Surrey Green, and eventually grew into a gigantic monster capable of threatening the earth, telepaths, and invisible criminals.

Steed and Mrs peel battle a Krynoid in Surrey Green in 1968.

The duo’s most dangerous adversaries however were a race of cybernetic monsters, simply known as the Cybernauts.

The Cybernauts stood 7 feet tall and were virtually indestructable. Their strength was also limitless, and some models had cybernetic brains that could allow them to think to a certain extent. They were the creation of the insane but brilliant scientist Clement Armstrong. The Cybernauts would ultimately prove to be too unpredictable and murdered their own creator, after which they shut down.

Steed and Mrs Peel take on their mechanical archenemies. The Cybernauts.

Clement’s brother, Paul, just a few months after his death would capture several scientists and force them to help him construct more Cybernauts which he wished to use against Steed and Mrs Peel as revenge for the death of his brother. Ultimately once again, the Cybernauts would kill their “creator” Paul, before being shut down.

Later in 1968, the Second Doctor, whilst on a mission for the Celestial Intervention Agency would reunite with his former companion Jamie McCrimmon.

Jamie had been sent back to his home era by the Time Lords when they captured the Second Doctor. They had also wiped all of Jamie’s memories of his adventures with the Doctor, but he was later found by the Meddling Monk. The Monk, who had finally managed to fix his TARDIS, (after the Doctor had damaged it), tracked Jamie’s family down, knowing that he was a companion of the Doctor. The Monk hoped to lure his old nemesis into a trap through Jamie, and was genuinely shocked when he found Jamie himself living with them. The Monk captured Jamie and scanned his mind (a painless process, which happened when the prisoner was unconscious. The Monk may have been a renegade, but he was not evil or sadistic like the Master or the Rani.)

The Monk discovered that a block had been placed around Jamie’s mind. After removing it and restoring Jamie’s memories, the Monk learned of the Doctors exile and could barely contain his laughter. Still the Monk saw potential in Jamie, and wanting an assistant of his own, the Monk pretended to be a former friend of the Doctors to Jamie to win him round. He promised Jamie that they would find the Doctor, but of course he had no intention of doing so, and the two would go on many adventures together throughout time and space.

The two would do many great things together, though they would also change the histories of many worlds however. The Monk was able to influence the somewhat naive young Jamie, that his way was for the best, by playing on his hatred of the Time Lords. Whilst their intentions were always for the best, sadly not all of their changes worked out as they hoped.

Eventually however Jamie came to realize that the Monk’s actions were wrong, and after a clash, the Monk would abandon Jamie in London in the year 1961. The Monk did not just dump his former friend on the streets however. He gave him a false identity and wealth that would allow his former friend to live a comfortable life.

When Jamie became part of the swinging London scene however, he would waste most of the money the Monk left him on hard partying. By the time he was reunited with the Doctor he working a low paying job in a gas station.

Jamie would join the Doctor again. He missed his old friend and being able to explore other worlds and times.

The following year in 1969, the First Doctor would work with John Steed and Emma Peel against both the Daleks and the Cybernauts.

This group of Daleks came from a period in their history, where they had just discovered time travel. They had tried to destroy earth before it could threaten them in the future. However the Celestial Intervention Agency stopped them. Knowing that there were other, more advanced life forms that wanted to protect the timeline, the Daleks decided that they would have to apply more sneaky, underhand means.

To that end the Daleks hoped to bring about mankind’s destruction using the Cybernauts. They aided one of the former scientists of Majestic named Colin Cushing to mass produce the Cybernauts. Cushing had been the most ruthless of Majestic’s scientists, having performed absolutely horrific experiments on both human and alien captives. He was a wanted man, and willingly worked with the Daleks in the hope of taking over the earth. The Daleks were able to deceive him by pretending that they were the last of their kind and made him think that he would only have to deal with a few of them once he had taken over the earth.

The Daleks however were able to reprogramme the Cybernauts brains to exterminate all non Dalek life forms on earth.

The Doctor working with Steed and Mrs Peel would be able to break into Cushing’s base and reprogramme the Cybernaut army he was creating to turn on the Daleks. The Daleks and the Cybernauts fought. The Daleks were more advanced and were able to kill multiple Cybernauts at a time, however the Cybernauts had vastly superior numbers, and so they were able to still overpower and kill many Daleks.

Whilst the two were fighting, the Doctor was able to destroy Cushing’s base, eradicating all of the Daleks, their technology, and the Cybernauts production line.

After the earth was saved yet again, the Doctor would offer Steed and Mrs Peel a place on the TARDIS. (He was travelling with John and Gillian at this point.) However the two, feeling they still had work on earth, politely declined.

In 1969 Gamera would be called on to deal with another threat from outer space.

The last of a race of flesh eating aliens abducted two young boys from Japan named Akio and Tom in a scout ship and brought them to their world.

The aliens known as the Hirexi had visited earth through its history many times. They had always been interested in humanity and enjoyed abducting them for experimentation, entertainment and even as food (with human meat being something only a privileged few of their race were allowed to eat.)

However the Hierxi fell victim to the Gyaos who destroyed their entire civilization. The last few surviving members of their kind managed to create their own giant monster to battle the Gyaos. The aliens hadn’t attempted before as they had seen the damage that the likes of Godzilla had inflicted on humanity and did not want to risk something similar on their world.

Still it soon became apparent that there was no other way to defeat the Gyaos. The Hierxi created many monsters who fell before the Gyaos, but eventually they did manage to create a monster called Guiron that was able to easily overpower any individual Gyaos. Unfortunately by that stage the Hierxi’s population had been dwindled so much that they were unable to recover.

Also whilst Guiron was able to easily overpower any Gyaos, there were so many of them, that he couldn’t wipe all of their forces on the planet out, and the monsters would still patrol the ruins of the cities, snatching up any surviving Hierxi’s they could find.

Though dangerous Demons in their own right, the Gyaos were no match for Guiron. Sadly Guiron would come too late to save the Hierxi.

Eventually only two Hierxi’s remained, two women. Knowing that their race could never continue, they chose to live a comfortable life together, protected by Guiron from any remaining Gyaos. The last Hierxi decided that they would dine on the most exquisite meat in the galaxy. Two human brains!

The Hierxi spacecraft that had abducted the two boys had been the first Hierxi spaceship to arrive on the planet earth in 10 years.

Unfortunately for the two remaining Hierxi, Gamera would follow the ship through space to their home planet. There he would battle with Guiron several times before finally managing to destroy the beast and successfully bring the children home.

1970s

Image result for planet of the apes astronauts

The 4 astronauts chosen to be the first human explorers in deep space. Stewart would be killed before the vessel reached its destination due to a malfunction in her life support machine. She was the lucky one. 

The 1970s begun with the launch of the first manned mission into deep space. 4 Astronauts, Talyor, Dodge, Landon and Stewart would be placed into suspended animation during their journey which would last for over 1000 years, and take them far beyond our galaxy.

Unfortunately the ship would be lost almost instantly on take off, when it fell through the same time fissure, the Blisk, and Captain Dan Dare had earlier fallen through. A rescue mission would soon be mounted to try and find out where the first ship had vanished too, but the rescue vessel would fall through the same time fissure. Both ships would be transported to the 39th century.

The disappearance of both vessels would lead to a temporary halt in the space program of Russia and America, with many dubbing the area the ships vanished through, the Bermuda Triangle of Space.

Later in 1970, Gamera would defeat another gigantic monster that threatened Japan, Jiger.

In 1972 the earth would be under threat once more. This time from the Cybermen of Planet 14. This event would come to be known as the first of 3 great Cyber invasions of earth (with each one being worse than the last.)

The Cybermen would invade the earth with the help of a treacherous human servant named Tobias Vaughn. With Vaughn’s help the Cybermen intended to construct a machine that could control the minds of everyone on earth, allowing the Cybermen to convert every single human being into a member of their kind.

Of course should this fail the Cybermen had constructed a gigantic superweapon that would easily allow them to take the earth by force if need be, but they wanted as many humans as possible to be converted.

Vaughn meanwhile was no fool and knew that the Cybermen would either dispose of him, or convert him once they had ruled the earth, and he attempted to create a weapon that would allow him to destroy the Cybermen once they had conquered the earth, allowing him to rule in their place.

The Cybermen launch their invasion in 1970s London.

The Cyber invasion would be repelled by the Second Doctor and UNIT. UNIT had been fully established as Majestic’s replacement in the 4 years since the incident involving the Yeti in the underground.

The man chosen to head the British branch, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart (born in 1930) had helped the Doctor defeat the Great Intelligence and cover up the Yeti attack afterwards. Now promoted from the rank of Colonel to Brigadier, the Doctor recognized him from their previous adventure, and the Brigadier, knowing what the Doctor was capable of, trusted him enough to let him help UNIT deal with the threat.

The Doctor and UNIT would succeed in destroying the Cybermen’s hypnotic device, causing the monsters launch their megatron bomb. Tobias Vaughn also turned against the Cybermen, when he discovered that his weapon would be of no use against them. Vaughn did help the Doctor and UNIT fight their way into the Cybermen’s base, but he would be killed by the Cybermen during a confrontation.

Tobias Vaughn is killed by the Cybermen.

The Doctor and UNIT would succeed in destroying the Cyber bomb, allowing the earth forces to launch a series of missile strikes against the Cyber invasion force whilst they were weak destroying them completely.

The invasion would be covered up afterwards by UNIT, though there would be countless books written on it and even a film adaptation based on the conspiracy that aliens were behind the strange mass hypnosis in 1972.

The official cover story was that it was terrorists again. The Doctor however became something of a celebrity afterwards, with Isobel Watkins coverage of the cyber invasion helping to make him a well known face in the public eye. Isobel did not try and cover up the real cause of the invasion, and was soon silenced. She wouldn’t be blacklisted like Quatermass, thanks to the influence of the Brigadier, but she would find her reputation in ruins, and would be forced to write for other magazines covering other supposed alien incursions and visitations. Some of these were genuine however, but still for years she was somewhat bitter at how her career had turned out, but she would later be vindicated in 1986 after the second Cyber invasion, when details of the first invasion would be made public knowledge.

Still as the Doctor was featured in her story, and even interviewed, then he became known to the public for the first time. Though after Isobel was discredited, he too would be dismissed as a quack and be quietly forgotten about by the public. Among those who believed in aliens he would be remembered and even sought out a few years afterwards (though only in his second incarnation.)

In the interim period from his perspective, the Second Doctor would be captured by his own people, the Time Lords. The Time Lords wanted to punish the Doctor for breaking their most sacred laws of non interference. The Doctor argued that he had been a force for good in the universe, battling evils such as the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Great Intelligence and the Ice Warriors, and the Time Lords came to see the Doctors point of view, and agreed that he still had a part to play in the battle against evil across the universe.

Still not wanting to let a renegade go unpunished the Time Lords settled on a compromise. They would send the Doctor back to earth in the 1970s as they had foreseen a time of great peril for the planet, and felt that only the Doctor could protect humanity. The Doctor however would be unable to leave the planet earth until the Time Lords deemed fit. As a further punishment, the Doctor would be forced to regenerate once more.

The Doctor however would be given a reprieve by the Celestial Intervention Agency. They promised to allow him to avoid being exiled or being forced to use up one of his regenerations, if he agreed to go on missions for them. With no other choice the Doctor agreed to their terms. At some point the agency would restore the Doctors memories of John and Gillian and send him to rescue them from the Celestial Toymaker. The Celestial Intervention Agency were scared that the Toymaker could discover the secrets of the Time Lords through John and Gillian.

John and Gillian would subsequently join the Second Doctor on his adventures with the CIA, battling enemies such as the Daleks, and the Cybermen, before the Doctor dropped them off at the University of Zeb in the far future believing that the missions he was being sent on were too dangerous for them.

John and Gillian - Lawd luv 'em

John and Gillian during their travels with the Second Doctor.

Issue 789

The Doctor, John and Gillian fight the Daleks during his time with the Celestial Intervention Agency.

Whilst working for the Celestial Intervention Agency, the Doctor would pick up Jamie as his companion again in 1960s London. The Doctor would later be sent on a mission to rescue Susan from the Daleks. The Doctor was of course unaware that she had survived, but the Celestial Intervention Agency had foreseen a time when the Daleks would wipe out their entire race, through a plague, which they were able to create through horrific experiments on Susan, their only Time Lord captive. With the Time Lords gone, the Daleks would go on to wipe out the rest of N-Space.

Shocked and delighted that his granddaughter had survived, the Doctor would succeed in rescuing Susan and together they destroyed the Dalek task force and all of the research they had done on Susan. Susan had withstood the torture (which had lasted several months from her perspective.)

The Doctor would subsequently drop Susan off on Zeb where she would be reunited with her two children. The Doctor would continue to visit them at least once every incarnation to see how they were doing.

The Doctor and Jamie would later pick up Victoria again too, though both would eventually part from the Doctor once more.

Among the other notable adventures the Second Doctor went on during this time included 3 where he met his first as well as his future incarnations (more on these three adventures later.)

The Doctor and Jamie would also battle the grand high witch and her minions, and the two time travellers also visited Planet 14 where they stopped the Cybermen from Planet 14 from launching a powerful mind control weapon they had spent decades building which could allow them to control the minds of entire solar systems at a time. It was their ultimate project and after its destruction, the Doctor would be recognized as one of the Cybermen’s greatest enemies (this event was before the Cyber invasion of 1972.) The Doctor and Jamie would also battle the Cybermen many times during the days of the original Mondasian empire.

The Doctors battles the Cybermen during his time with the Celestial Intervention Agency.

The Doctor and Jamie would also face the Meddling Monk. Whilst the Doctor was ordered to bring him back to the Time Lords, Jamie would allow him to escape for all he had done for him, but warned the renegade Time Lord that if he met him again he would allow the Doctor to hand him over.

The Doctor would also battle the first Mekon. This Mekon had created a weapon that would allow him to absorb the solar flares from the sun, and redirect them towards any planet in the solar system. The Mekon hoped to use this to wipe the Therons out completely and conquer the earth. The Second Doctor however was able to use the Mekon’s own weapon against him and destroy his base, killing him. The second Mekon that would take his place however, would be far worse.

The Celestial Intervention Agency would gift the Doctor with several new weapons and gadgets during his time with them, including a weapons belt, that’s compartments were bigger on the inside than the outside, an escape hatch in his TARDIS, and a stattinia remote control that could allow him to summon the TARDIS. As time went on the Second Doctor would also become more ruthless in dealing with his enemies.

Eventually the Second Doctor would find a way to break free from the Time Lords control and would resume his travels again, but the Celestial Intervention Agency would track the Doctor down however and this time, knowing that they couldn’t control him, sent the Doctor to the high council of the Time Lords who still wished to carry out his exile. The Doctor however was able to escape the Time Lords once more, but this time he was only able to have his TARDIS make one stop, ironically to earth in 1972, as the Time Lords had already programmed his TARDIS to travel to earth, and then burn itself out, (but they hadn’t taken away the Doctors knowledge on how to control it yet.)

On earth the Doctor searched for resources to try and repair his TARDIS. He kept his head down so as not to draw attention to himself. He didn’t seek out his old allies UNIT for this reason, knowing that the Time Lords would find him there.

Still over the next few months in 1972 the Doctor would help defeat more alien incursions and even some home grown threats too. His recent fame as a result of Isobel’s expose meant that people would seek the renegade out for the first time to ask for help in dealing with paranormal threats.

The Time Lords would use this against the Doctor. Just as he was on the brink of repairing his TARDIS, the Time Lords would use their power to animate several Scarecrows and use them to frighten the locals in the English countryside.

The Doctor of course investigated but he only discovered that it was the Time Lords behind the Scarecrows when it was too late. The Scarecrows were able to capture the Doctor, take him back to the TARDIS, which was then teleported back to Gallifrey, where the Time Lords would then both complete the Doctors regeneration, and finally remove the knowledge of how to pilot the TARDIS from his mind, before sending him back to earth to begin his exile. Most of the Doctors time with the Celestial Intervention Agency would be wiped too. They’d allow him to remember a few things, such as what happened to his grand daughter Susan, and also John, Gillian, Jamie, Victoria etc, but they wiped his memory of various other adventures and details. As time went on the Doctors memories of his time with the Celestial Intervention Agency would become more hazy, to the point where he didn’t even remember that he had a stattinia remote control.

As soon as the newly regenerated Third Doctor arrived on earth in late 1972 (only a few months after the Cyber attack), he would be taken in by UNIT. The Brigadier did not believe that this apparent stranger was the Doctor at first, but soon came to see that he was the same man when the two were forced to deal with another threat to the earth. The Nestene Consciousness.

The Nestene Consciousness had built up a massive empire since the days of the Anti God. Earth was simply the latest planet they had set their sights on.

A group of Nestene’s were sent to the earth to exterminate and enslave most of humanity, making way for the Nestene colonists to arrive on the planet.

The Nestene’s created an army of soldiers called Autons to invade, all over the world, made from plastic, (as it was the only substance they could animate.) The plastic soldiers were equipped with high powered guns and were deposited in shops (disguised as mannequins) allowing them to strike in all of the major cities around the world.

The Nestene invade the earth.

Whilst UNIT held off the Autons to prevent mass casualties the Third Doctor and his companion Liz Shaw were able to confront the Nestene’s at their base where the Doctor was able to sever their connection to the Autons. The Nestene would even assume their physical form, that of a giant green octopus monster and attempt to strangle the Third Doctor, but with Liz’s help the Doctor was able to defeat the Nestene and shut down its entire army of Autons, after which it was then imprisoned in UNIT HQ.

Following the defeat of the Auton invasion, the Doctor would be appointed UNIT’s scientific adviser. They had attempted to persuade Bernard Quatermass to be UNIT’s scientific adviser, but he turned them down, at that point believing that UNIT, who had still not revealed the truth about the Martian riots in 1963, were potentially no better than Majestic.

Quatermass would be able to resurrect his career the next year in 1973 when he was appointed the head of the revived British Rocket Group.

The Doctor meanwhile was more than happy to serve as UNIT’s scientific adviser as not only would it make it easier for him to overcome the threats the Time Lords had sent him to earth to stop, but he would also have access to UNIT’s resources, which he hoped to use to repair the TARDIS and break his exile.

During his time on earth, the Doctor would come to live in Old Mill Cottage in Mayfield.

Old Mill Cottage in Mayfield. The Third Doctor would live there during his exile on earth, but later Doctors would all stay there too, with the 10th Doctor spending the most amount of time there after the third.

The Doctor and the Brigadier would next come into conflict with a group of Silurians, who were awoken from their slumber by a mining operation. The Silurians with their pet Allosaurus would instantly begin attacking miners, and later UNIT soldiers who came to investigate their base. They regarded humanity as being nothing more than dangerous animals who had taken their rightful place.

The Doctor knowing that the Silurians were just lashing out in fear, and that they were actually a peaceful race. Tried to reason with the Silurians, warning them that if they continued to provoke mankind then it would lead to a war that could destroy both races. The Doctor assured the Silurians that he could take them far away to another uninhabited planet where they could live in peace.

The Doctors attempts to reason with the Silurians don’t go too well at first.

Eventually the leader of the Silurians came to see that the Doctor was right, and called off hostilities with humanity. Unfortunately, a young upstart Silurian who wanted to exterminate humanity, and also gain power for himself, created a plague that he hoped would wipe out mankind. As soon as the leader of the Silurians found out, he was horrified, and gave the Doctor a sample of the plague to help him create a cure.

Unfortunately the leader of the Silurians would soon be killed by the young upstart who shot him in the back. Fortunately the Doctor was able to derive a cure from the plague (though not before it spread through London, killing many innocent people.)

The Silurians however would try to destroy humanity again, by capturing the Doctor and UNIT HQ. They threatened to begin killing the entire staff of UNIT, including the Brigadier and Liz unless the Doctor helped them use a nuclear reactor to alter the atmosphere of earth where it would be made too hot for humans to survive, but perfect for cold blooded reptiles like the Silurians.

The Doctor however was able to sabotage the Silurians plans again, by tricking them into believing that he had botched the molten core so much that it would flood the planet with lethal radiation. The Silurians retreated underground to escape what they believed would be another disaster and placed themselves into suspended animation.

Of course the Doctor was able to shut down the reactor, but when the Doctor later came to investigate the base, he discovered the Silurians new leader, had remained on guard. The Brigadier who had followed the Doctor to the base was able to gun down the leader of the Silurians before it could kill the Doctor.

With their leader gone the Doctor hoped he could revive the rest of the Silurians one at a time and convince them to agree to his terms.

After losing so many men to the Silurians however, and after their two previous attempts to destroy humanity had almost succeeded, the Brigadier would order the Silurians base destroyed before the Doctor could revive even one of them.

The Doctor was utterly horrified. He accused the Brigadier of cold blooded murder as though some of the Silurians had gone along with their leaders evil actions, the majority of those destroyed in the base by UNIT’s attack had not even been revived during the Silurian incursion and may very well have been open to the Doctors ideas, much as their first leader was.

The relationship between the Doctor and the Brigadier would remain cool for a long while afterwards. Though they still respected one another and where able to work together, it would be a long while before the two became actual friends.

Not long after the Silurian incursion the Doctor and Brigadier would be called in to deal with another extraterrestrial incursion. The aliens in question, from a far away planet beyond our solar system had actually originally arrived as ambassadors to try and make peace with humanity.

Unfortunately however the aliens touch was lethal to humans and a former astronaut, believing the aliens to be monsters after he saw them accidentally kill some of his friends, attempted to frame the aliens as monsters on television and provoke a war between the two races. The Doctor and the Brigadier however were able to foil these plans.

Towards the end of 1972, the Doctor and UNIT would be sent in to monitor the Inferno project. The Inferno project was created by Professor Stahlman to drill right through the earth’s crust in order to access a new type of gas that Stahlman hoped could replace fossil fuel as a natural resource.

Unfortunately not only where Stahlman’s experiments incredibly dangerous, but the drilling also released a green slime that turned anyone who came into contact with it into a hideous, bestial, monster, called a Primord. Anyone a Primord touched would turn into a Primord too.

The Doctor tried to warn Stahlman that his reckless actions could have even worse consequences for mankind, but the pig headed scientist refused to listen, and things became so heated between Stahlman and the Doctor that they even came to blows!

Later when the Doctor was experimenting with the TARDIS console, he ended up inadvertently sending himself to another universe.

This universe’s history was different to N-Space in that in the 1950s, Majestic just as in E-Space’s were able to overrun the earth. There were still counterparts to people from N-Space in this world however, including Stahlman, Liz Shaw and the Brigadier.

Thanks to the influence of Majestic however they were very different people from their N-Space counterparts. The Brigadier was known as the Brigade Leader, and was an utterly pitiless commander, utterly devoted to Majestic’s cause.

Just as in N-Space, Stahlman was head of a project to drill through the earth’s core (though in this reality it was staffed by a slave labor force.)

The Doctor tried to stop Stahlman’s project from going ahead. Not only did it unleash more green slime that infected several of the staff at the project (and Stahlman himself) turning them all into monsters, but Stahlman’s drill ended up ripping the crust of the earth apart. Powerful radioactive forces were unleashed which began to melt the earth until it eventually burned away into nothing. The Doctor however was able to escape from the alternate earth, just before its destruction.

The alternate earth is destroyed thanks to Stahlman’s reckless experiments with the earth’s core.

Back in N-Space the Doctor was able to stop N-Space’s version of Stahlman from causing the same catastrophe. Along the way Stahlman of N-Space would also be turned into a Primord too.

Though the Doctor had saved N-Space’s version of earth yet again, he would be haunted by nightmares of the alternate version of earth that he failed to save.

In early 1973, the Doctor would come into conflict with his old friend, the Master for the first time since they left Gallifrey centuries ago.

The Master wanted to take control of the earth as he believed humanity would be perfect as his army to conquer the galaxy and in his mind, bring order to it. When he heard that the Doctor was exiled there, specifically to protect it, the Master couldn’t resist the challenge. He wanted to prove his superiority to both the Doctor, the only renegade to rival, and in some areas’ exceed him, and the Time Lords too, (who had chosen the Doctor to protect this planet.)

The Doctor and the Masters feud which will last for thousands of years begins on earth in the 20th century.

The Master would attack UNIT HQ and free the Nestene Consciousness from its prison. He hoped to use it to take control of the earth, after which he would then of course dispose of the Nestene. The Master would aid the Nestene by helping them to create more advanced Autons that could infiltrate human society to a greater extent. The Masters Autons came in all shapes and sizes, from mannequins, to dolls, to plastic daffodils to chairs. Thousands would be killed by the Masters Auton minions before the Doctor and the Brigadier would be able to finally destroy the Nestene invasion force for good this time. Whilst the Doctor was able to steal the directional UNIT from the Masters TARDIS, leaving him trapped on the earth. The Master was able to escape both the Doctor and UNIT.

The Master would spend the next few months constructing a weapon that would make people experience their worst fears as hallucinations. The Master hoped to use this weapon at a peace conference and kick off a third global conflict, after which he could then re-emerge and take over.

The Doctor was able to destroy the Master’s machine, but sadly his attempt to kill the Master failed, and the villain was able to swipe the directional UNIT from his TARDIS and escape the earth again, though not before vowing to the Doctor that he would one day destroy him.

The Master would later be captured by a race of powerful aliens known as the Axons. The Axons were parasites that fed on the life force of other creatures. They devoured entire planets at a time, and were a highly advanced and feared race. However they had never mastered the secret of time travel, which they believed would make them utterly unstoppable.

When the Master’s TARDIS collided with their ship, the Axons were able to capture the renegade. Having heard legends of the Time Lords for centuries, the Axons were shocked to learn that they existed and demanded that the Master construct a time vessel for them.

The Master however was aware that the Axons would dispose of him once they had given them access to the Time Lords secrets and so he cut a deal with the monsters.

The Master would direct the Axons to the earth, telling them that there was a Time Lord stranded there that they could use for their plans. The Master knew that the Axons would destroy the earth if they went there, and that if they got their hands on the Doctor and forced him to help them, they could end up decimating billions of worlds across all of time and space. The Master however didn’t care. He was willing to make any sacrifice to save his own miserable neck.

The Axons attacked the earth, killing many innocent people and capturing the Doctor, who they attempted to torture into helping them, but the Doctor managed to trick the Axons, by using time travel technology to trap them in a time loop forever. The Doctor attempted to trap the Master in the same time loop, but unfortunately the villain escaped yet again.

The Doctor and his new assistant Jo Grant would soon be sent on a mission by the Celestial Intervention Agency to a planet in the far away future to stop the Master from gaining a powerful alien super weapon which the Agency had foreseen he would use to devastate millions of worlds across the universe.

The Doctor was successful in stopping the Master retrieving the weapon, but the villain once again managed to escape, whilst the Doctor would be sent back to earth to resume his exile once his mission was over.

Back on earth, the Doctor, Jo and UNIT would face the Master yet again when the villain attempt to awaken Azal from his ancient slumber. The Master hoped that Azal would see that the Master was worthy to lead mankind, and transfer his great power to the Time Lord. Instead Azal, after seeing how little progress humanity had made in the centuries since his slumber, decided to destroy mankind instead. The Doctor, Jo Grant and UNIT working together were able to defeat the Master. Azal would destroy himself in confusion when Jo Grant was willing to sacrifice herself to protect the Doctor.

The Master was captured this time by UNIT and put on trial. The Masters trial would be broadcast to all of the world’s leaders, all of whom had made aware of the criminal’s activities on earth. The Master would defend himself during the trial and make it known to the various world leaders that he would help them if it suited him.

JUDGE: Counsel for the defence may now cross examine the witness

THE MASTER: Thank you, your honor.

THE DOCTOR: Of all the infernal… You don’t mean to tell me he’s defending himself?

THE MASTER: Sadly, yes. Sir Roderick met with a most unfortunate accident.

THE DOCTOR: Yes… I’m quite sure that he did.

THE MASTER: Would the court please make note of the witness’s hostile attitude. The Doctor is a very old, and, may I say, a very dear acquaintance, but sometimes a little incautious and hot headed in his choice of language.

THE DOCTOR: I’m not hot headed, you scoundrel. 

THE MASTER: Do make a note of that.

THE DOCTOR: Now see here…

THE MASTER: I really think, Doctor, it may be best if you take a nice deep breath. I say this, speaking as a friend.

THE DOCTOR: I am no friend of yours!

THE MASTER: Indeed? The whole court has heard you give an impassioned speech asking for me to be shown clemency. Who but a friend would do that?

THE DOCTOR: A merciful man.

THE MASTER: A humane one?

THE DOCTOR: Yes.

THE MASTER: But it is these very humane humans of yours that wish to put me to death.

THE DOCTOR: Well… you’ve killed hundreds and tried destroy their planet half a dozen times.

THE MASTER: I dispute that last statement. I really must protest. I have not tried to destroy this planet. I will admit I have, perhaps encouraged regime change on several occasions.

THE DOCTOR: You admit it!

THE MASTER: The human race is not very advanced is it Doctor? They still, for example practise the death penalty.

THE DOCTOR: Yes…

THE MASTER: They regard all alien life as hostile and frequently wipe it out in their encounters with it.

THE DOCTOR: That is regrettable.

THE MASTER: You see, ladies and gentlemen of the court, please don’t take this amiss, but as a species you’re not experienced enough. You are likely to misconstrue the actions of other species simply because you cannot yet comprehend them. You may perceive our actions as a threat when really they are a benevolent attempt to bring you advancement. Would you not agree, Doctor?

THE DOCTOR: I would not!

THE MASTER: So, when you brokered a peace treaty with the Silurians, what was the reaction of the human race?

THE DOCTOR: They, er, well, they blew them up.

THE MASTER: They destroyed an ancient civilization? Dear me, hardly the action of an advanced species. Is it, Doctor?

THE DOCTOR: No. No, on that I must agree. But humanity is… well… I mean, for a level 2 civilization, they’re doing remarkably well.

THE MASTER: A level 2 civilzation! Would you care to define a level 2 civilization?

THE DOCTOR: I’m not really sure I should.

THE MASTER: Come now, Doctor. You introduced it into evidence?

THE DOCTOR: Very well. A level 2 civilization is one that has discovered elementary space travel, hydrocarbons, antibiotics and the principles of nuclear fission.

THE MASTER: A capital definition. And what do most level 2 civilizations do with the discovery of nuclear fission?

THE DOCTOR: They build power stations.

THE MASTER: But what, would you say, is the principal use made of it by humanity?

THE DOCTOR: Oh, that’s hardly fair. Its how humanity learns, they find a thing and their first use is always.

THE MASTER: Yes Doctor?

THE DOCTOR: In weapons. They make nuclear weapons.

THE MASTER: And how would such a development be viewed by, say, a level 3 civilization?

THE DOCTOR: As barbaric. But..

THE MASTER: Barbaric! And tell me Doctor. What level is our own race?

THE DOCTOR: Ah, ah, well, a level 12 civilization.

THE MASTER: So would you say you are more qualified to judge humanity’s actions than they are?

THE DOCTOR: Er…

THE MASTER: I’ll rephrase the question. Are they qualified to judge your actions?

THE DOCTOR: Certainly not.

THE MASTER: So are they qualified to judge me? All right let me put it to you. I stand here accused of being now what is it, ah yes under article 18B of the Emergency Powers Act of being of hostile origin or association, and of committing acts prejudicial to public safety. Doctor I dispute these allegations, and you are going to help me prove them false.

THE DOCTOR: I have absolutely no intention of helping you.

THE MASTER: Since arriving on this planet, would you not agree that I have revolutionized the efficiency of the plastics manufacturing industry?

THE DOCTOR: Yes, but

THE MASTER: Thank you. I’ll admit my methods were aggressive, but oh so human. And have I not also had remarkable results with the elimination of psychopathic tendencies in the criminal mind.

THE DOCTOR: Only by

THE MASTER: I’m afraid its a yes or no question.

THE DOCTOR: Yes, but

THE MASTER: And finally, did I not offer humanity a remarkable solution to its energy crisis?

THE DOCTOR: Fine, yes fine. But in every case

THE MASTER: I know, I know. My good intentions were rebuffed and misconstructed. Surely, however even you can agree with my actions in Devils End.

THE DOCTOR: Not in the slightest.

THE MASTER: Come now. Who better to sit in judgement on a level 2 civilization than its creator, Azal of the Daemons. We can both see the mess this species is in. You can choose to do nothing. I tried, oh how I tried, and then when that failed, I appealed to Azal, hoping he could shape and reform it. Instead regrettably, he wrote the experiment off. Wasn’t that what happened, Doctor?

THE DOCTOR: Well… yes. If it hadn’t been for Miss Grant. You’re leaving out your actions on Uxarieus, where you tried to take control of.

THE MASTER: Where I attempted peacefully to adjudicate on a dispute between worthy pioneers and a legitimate mining concern. But I’m fairly certain Doctor that events on other planets are outside the jurisdiction of this court, and should not be brought into play. 

THE DOCTOR: They prove that you want to play God.

THE MASTER: Merely to improve the existence of the common lot, I assure you. I am on this planet for its own good.

THE DOCTOR: If not the good of its population.

THE MASTER: Now, that is unfair, Doctor. I try my best. What more can anyone say? 

THE DOCTOR: You intend to escape.

THE MASTER: Oh why bother? Someone will come for me. After the last war, both the Russians and the Americans snapped up Hitlers rocket designers. You have made me famous. I owe you a great debt, Doctor. The finest criminal mind on the planet. Didn’t your friend the Brigadier have trouble avoiding my extradition to… well, lets start with Geneva, New York, Moscow. Correct?

THE DOCTOR: Yes.

THE MASTER: In fact, that’s why this fine example of British justice is being beamed into the offices of every state leader around the world. Isn’t it?

THE DOCTOR: You’ve certainly brought a lot of attention to yourself. You always were a conceited show-off.

THE MASTER: Thank you, Doctor. Tell me — when you find a piece of alien weaponry lying about, what do you do with it? Do you hand it over to the Brigadier?

THE DOCTOR: Certainly not. I deactivated those fusion mines you left for me. They could have blown up an entire country.

THE MASTER: Indeed. An amusing little toy. I can rig up something similar in a trice. I really must thank you for proving my point so neatly, Doctor. You really should have arranged for my deactivation when you had the chance. You’ve just reminded everyone watching that I am the most valuable weapon in the world. And I very much look forward to doing business with all of you.No further questions.

THE DOCTOR: Now see here!

THE MASTER: No further questions! 

Extract from the Masters trial in late 1972.

The Master would remain in prison for several months. During that time UNIT searched for his TARDIS, but sadly they failed to find it.

Later in 1973, with the great powers of the planet earth on the brink of a third global conflict Sir Reginald Styles was able to gather the leaders of the great powers together for negotiations.

It was no exaggeration to say the safety of the entire world hinged on this conference. Unfortunately a few nights before the conference, a mysterious figure appeared in Styles house, and tried to shoot him with a strange looking weapon before vanishing.

Naturally UNIT and the Doctor would soon be brought in to defend Styles. The Doctor and Jo would come into conflict with more soldiers wielding futuristic weapons, and hideous ape like creatures called Ogrons.

During one of the fights, the Doctor and Jo would accidentally be sent into the future where the Doctor learned the awful truth about the future of mankind. Sir Reginald Styles was in fact secretly a radical who killed all of the other delegates and himself in an explosion which kicked off a third world war. The war lasted for many years, wiping out most of the population of earth in the process. The war was so devastating that the Furons believed that the human race had been killed off and left the planet.

The few unlucky survivors of humanity would be forced to scrape out a pitiful existence for many decades until their planet was invaded by the Daleks. The Daleks were able to easily overrun the last humans who they rounded up as a slave labor force into camps. The Dalek camps would also be policed by their ape like servants, the Ogrons.

The Daleks would turn earth into a giant factory, to harvest its resources and minerals to construct powerful weapons that allowed their empire to expand further into space.

The Doctor would  be captured by the Daleks, who tortured him almost to death to discover his identity. The Doctor was later rescued however by the same soldiers he had faced in Styles house. They explained to the Doctor that they had been fighting the Daleks for years, but knowing they would eventually lose, they were able to steal some of the Daleks time travel technology and attempted to kill Styles before he could start the war.

The Doctor however did not believe that Styles was a ruthless killer and was able to deduce that he was not in fact responsible for the explosion that killed the delegates. It was ironically one of the soldiers, named Shura, who in an attempt to kill Styles, blew up the house. Shura was unaware that the rest of the delegates were in the house at the time.

The Doctor and Jo quickly hurried back to the 20th century to warn Styles. Unfortunately however the Daleks knowing that the Doctor was trying to tamper with their history, arrived back in full force to destroy the peace conference themselves.

UNIT would hold the Daleks off outside the house whilst the Doctor was able to get Styles and the rest of the delegates to safety. The UNIT soldiers were hopelessly outmatched by the Daleks who slaughtered dozens and dozens of them before breaking their way into the house. Fortunately the delegates had all managed to escape, and Shura, having been warned of the Daleks coming by the Doctor, detonated the bomb, destroying the entire Dalek task force.

Styles conference went ahead and war would be averted, changing the future. A Dalek invasion would still happen in the 22nd century, but unlike the version in the rebels altered future, it would be repelled.

The Brigadier’s competence would be called into question after the 73 Dalek invasion. He had lost so many soldiers to what was only a few Daleks. Of course Genenva had no idea just how dangerous the Daleks were and the Brigadier would eventually thanks to the Doctors testimony be able to prove that the Daleks were more dangerous than the other aliens they had faced. Still he would always be haunted by the images of the young men he had lost to the Daleks.

Image result for day of the daleks

The Daleks and their Ogron servants arrive at Styles house and fight the UNIT soldiers. The Brigadier would consider this to be the low point of his career due to the staggering amount of men lost to just a few Daleks. 

The Doctor and Jo Grant would be sent on another mission through time and space not long after, by the Celestial Intervention Agency to help the planet Peladon in the far future. After they were brought back to earth by the Time Lords, the two would then come into conflict with their old archenemy, the Master.

From his prison the Master had come into contact with a a group of Sea Devils, ocean dwelling cousins of the Silurians, who had been awoken from their slumber.

The Master had grown to despise the Doctor so much that he wanted to provoke a war between humanity and the Sea Devils simply to get revenge on him. As the Doctor was fond of both races, then no matter what side won it would hurt him. Sadly despite the Doctors best efforts to broker peace between the two races, the Master’s hold over the Se Devils was too strong and in order to stop them from exterminating humanity, the Doctor was forced to destroy their base.

The Master meanwhile was able to escape in the confusion and make his way back to his TARDIS, though not before promising the Doctor that he would see him again.

Sure enough just a few weeks later the Master would return yet again. This time the Master was after a Crystal that would allow him to control Chronos, a Chronovore. The villain would travel back to ancient Atlantis. Though the Doctor was once again able to foil the Master, sadly the Masters actions would lead to the destruction of ancient Atlantis (see the previous section for more details.)

Later in 1973, Mrs Peel would leave the service after her husband was found alive, though Steed would continue to work with the service throughout the remainder of the decade, alongside agents, Tara King, Purdi and Gambit.

In November 1973, the Doctor’s exile would finally be lifted by the Time Lords. The Doctor, UNIT and Jo would face arguably their biggest challenge, Omega, the founder of the Time Lords himself.

Omega had been driven insane by the centuries of solitude. He wanted to make the Time Lords suffer for abandoning him and planned to unleash the anti matter from his universe into N-Space to destroy it.

Omega launched his first attack against Gallifrey, and the Time Lords were barely able to contain the anti matter, and almost all of their power was used to try and contain it.

With the Time Lords indisposed of,Omega sent his anti matter monsters, the Gel guards to capture the Doctor, exiled on earth. Knowing that the Doctor was their last chance, the Time Lords using their last ounce of power abducted both the Second and First Doctors from their timelines and sent them to 1973 earth to help the Third Doctor.

Unfortunately however their power was so low that they were only able to send a projection of the First Doctor to communicate with his later two selves.

The two Doctors would still, along with the rest of UNIT HQ be captured by Omega’s gell guards and taken to his base in the black hole. The three Doctors (with the first still being able to communicate with them.) Were able to come up with a plan to defeat Omega. The Second Doctors recorder had survived the trip into the black hole. Protected by the TARDIS’ force field, it had remained matter (Omega had converted the Doctors, and the UNIT staff into anti matter to bring them into his black hole.)

The two Doctors were able to trick Omega into smashing the forcefield, allowing the matter and antimatter to collide, destroying Omega and his anti matter prison, whilst the two Doctors managed to escape back into N-Space, being converted back to matter along the way.

The First and Second Doctors would be sent back to their own time by the Time Lords (with their memories being wiped of the events so as to preserve the timeline.)

The Time Lords then in return for saving them, lifted the Third Doctors exile and restored the memories of how to pilot the TARDIS to his mind. Though the Third Doctor would resume exploring time and space, he had grown very attached to 1970s earth and would return to help the Brigadier regularly. He even left the Brig with a device that could contact him across all of time and space (which he dubbed a space, time telegraph) in case the Brigadier needed help in dealing with another menace.

The Doctor would next help UNIT deal with a renegade super computer, similar to WOTAN, called BOSS in early 1974. Linked directly to a human brain, Boss had developed its own personality and desires. It sought to conquer mankind, and had created giant maggot creatures which spread a hideous, poison that transformed its victims skin green.

The Doctor however once again was able to save humanity, foil Boss’ masterplan and destroy the renegade computer.

Not long after defeating Boss, the Doctor would be captured by the Mekon. The Mekon had been monitoring the earth for some time. Whilst planning to create a new giant monster that could defeat Gamera, the Mekon had taken note of the Doctor’s activities. The Venusian tyrant came to believe the Doctor in some respects might be a bigger threat to the Treen’s plans for earth than any giant monster. The Mekon had also taken note of the various alien threats to the earth such as the Daleks, the Cybermen and the alien ambassadors.

Many of the races that had attacked the earth, such as the Daleks and the Cybermen were clearly more advanced than the Treens were (at that point.) The Mekon grew terrified of a similar invasion of Venus and so he decided to capture the Doctor and brainwash him to both protect Venus the same way he had done for earth, and also to build the Treens up to being as powerful as the Time Lords. The Mekon was able to capture the Doctor by unleashing several of his new mutant creations on earth.

These hideous amorphous blob like creatures feasted on human flesh, and went on a rampage across London, but whilst UNIT were called in to deal with them, one of the creatures who was directly under the Mekon’s control, was able to catch the Doctor by surprise.

The monsters had been as single minded as animals and so the Doctor was completely caught off guard when one was able to seemingly think for itself.

The Doctor would be shipped back to Venus where the Mekon would attempt to brainwash the Time Lord. The Mekon’s technology would not be able to get past the barrier around the Doctors mind, and so the Mekon would attempt to torture the Doctor to break him. The Doctor however didn’t cave, and so the Mekon decided to play on what he believed was the Doctors only weakness. His compassion.

The Mekon threatened to slaughter more and more of his Atlantine slaves every day until the Doctor agreed to build a weapon that could allow him to conquer the Therons.

The Doctor having no other choice was forced to agree to the Mekon’s demands for now. The Brigadier meanwhile, desperate to rescue his friend, would be forced to go to the second leading expert on alien life on earth. Bernard Quatermass. Quatermass had generally shunned UNIT, but he and the Doctor had ironically become good friends. They spent a lot of their free time together at a local gentleman’s club (along with John Steed) and enjoyed sharing stories about the various alien menaces they had combated over the years. Quatermass would first help the Brigadier defeat the Venusian monsters, by creating a formula that could melt their slimy bodies (which had been able to absorb all projectiles UNIT had fired at them.)

Quatermass then sought out an unlikely ally in Crypto 139. Crypto 138 had since died in an accident, and his replacement had come into conflict with Bernard Quatermass and British Rocket Group a few times. Quatermass had recently stopped Crypto from slaughtering a small town in rural England to harvest their brain stems. Crypto and Pox had targeted the town because it was cut off from most of the rest of England. They intended to cover up their actions by blowing it up afterwards and then make it look like a meteor strike.

Their defeat at Quatermass’ hands marked the first time that Crypto and Orthopox had been defeated by a human without any alien help. As a result Pox actually believed that Quatermass must have been an alien, and ordered Crypto to harvest Quatermass’ brainstem so he could study it. The two Furons would then launch an attack against British rocket group which devastated their headquarters but once again Quatermass gave was able to evade the Furons.

Quatermass had successfully managed to track down Crypto and Pox’s headquarters, but was waiting for the right moment to strike at the aliens. Now however he would be forced to ask for their help. Crypto had a flying saucer far more advanced than the Treens technology. It was the only way they could get to Venus.

Quatermass was able to convince Crypto to help by telling him about the Doctor and how if the creatures from Venus gained access to the knowledge of the Time Lords through him, then they would be more powerful than even the Furons.

Crypto agreed to take Quatermass and the Brigadier to Venus. Unfortunately the three of them greatly underestimated the Treens who were able to shoot Crypto’s scout ship down.

The Doctor meanwhile was forced to build a machine that could alter the sun into a power source for the Venusians like the Eye of Harmony.

If the Doctor so much as made one mistake then the Mekon would slaughter a family of Atlantines right in front of him. Crypto’s telepathic and telekenitic abilities meanwhile helped the Brig, Quatermass and Crypto himself sneak into the Treens base where they were able to rescue the Doctor. The Doctor however didn’t stop there. The Doctor knew he had to destroy the Mekon’s lab where he was creating the monsters, and with Crypto, the Brigadier and Quatermass’ help the Doctor would kill all of the Mekon’s monsters, by distributing Quatermass’ chemical into their food supply to poison them all.

The Doctor would have preferred another way, but there wasn’t one as the mutants were beyond help, having been conditioned by the Mekon to do nothing but kill. The Mekon also had so many of them, that if not stopped they could be a truly devastating army for the Venusian tyrant. The Doctor then destroyed the Mekon’s base, after Crypto and the Brigadier were able to get the Atlantine slaves to safety.

Unfortunately however the Atlantines had been the servants of the Treens for so long that they had forgotten how to survive on their own and didn’t bother to take advantage of the golden opportunity the Doctor had given them to overthrow their reptillian oppressors.

The Doctor, Quatermass, Crypto and the Brigadier would escape back to earth in Crypto’s saucer (which the Doctor was able to repair.) Narrowly avoiding the Mekon’s forces along the way.

The Doctors actions would set the Mekon back by 100 years, with many of his most devastating weapons being lost, and all of his mind control technology too. Still the Mekon did not give up and made plans to destroy the Doctor and the Furons once and for all.

Back on earth the Doctor, Quatermass and the Brigadier would unite a few months on yet again when visitors from D-Space would arrive on earth. In D-Space, a highly advanced race known as the Plasicore had created a mutant designed to feast on humanoids (considering them to be a plague on the universe.) The more humanoids the beast ate, the stronger it became. The creature had consumed entire worlds and colonies and was now attacking the Federation, who had been forced into an unlikely alliance with the Klingon and Romulan empires. Together the three created a vastly powerful super weapon that they hoped could destroy the beast. The weapon was fired by the USS Enterprise (whilst the Klingons and the Romulans held the monster off.)

The weapon though effective, ended up creating a massive rip in time and between D-Space and N-Space which the enterprise fell through. Unfortunately a tiny fragment of the creature survived too and headed towards N-Space’s version of earth to regain its former strength.

The crew of the Enterprise would beam down to earth and assist the Doctor, Quatermass, and the Brigadier in finally destroying the monster before it could devour the population of earth. The Third Doctor had worked with the crew of the Enterprise earlier from his and their perspective (but later in the history of N-Space.) The two had previously teamed up to take on the Daleks, whose actions threatened all of reality and had even become friends during the incursion. Captain Kirk would become one of the Doctors best friends through all of his subsequent incarnations.

Not long after the creature was defeated and the crew of the Enterprise returned home, the Doctor and the Brigadier would be called in to investigate the disappearances of several scientists. The Doctor discovered that it was a Sontaran named Linx, stranded in 10th century England, who was abducting scientists from the future to use as a slave labor force to help repair his ship, so that he could resume his war with the Rutans.

Linx was also interfering in the affairs of human history by supplying a warlord named Irongron with high advanced weaponry. The Doctor was able to travel back to the 10th century and defeat Linx, send the scientist back to their own time and destroy Linx’s weaponry.

It was during this adventure that the Doctor would first work with Sarah Jane Smith. Sarah Jane was an aspiring reporter who had arrived to investigate the disappearance of the scientists. Using her more established aunt’s name as an alias. The Doctor quickly saw through her deception, but kept her around as he saw something of himself in this young reporter who was eager to find out the truth, and discover new things. Still Sarah Jane ended up stowing away aboard the TARDIS, simply out of curiosity and traveled with the Doctor to tenth century England.

Sarah though inexperienced, proved to be brave and very resourceful and even saved the Doctors life directly from Linx. It didn’t take long for the Doctor to want to ask her to travel with him, but first he knew he had to take her home to give her a choice.

Unfortunately when the Doctor and Sarah arrived back in 1974, a few months after they had left for the 10th century, they discovered London was deserted. A group of renegade scientists using time travel technology had abducted various Dinosaurs from the past into modern day London including several ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex’s.

Many people had been killed in the Dinosaurs initial rampage before UNIT were able to evacuate everyone from the city. The Brigadier had his hands full in dealing with the Dinosaurs, who just seemed to pop out of nowhere.

The Doctor was able to discover who was bringing them into modern day, a group of renegade scientists,whose plans were much bigger than to simply revive the Dinosaurs. They intended to erase humanity from existence, all except for a select few who would be preserved in a time bubble and build a new world afterwards, free of pollution and man’s devastating effect on the environment.

The Doctor would foil their plan by using the scientists own time travel technology to send them back to the age of the Dinosaurs.

The Doctor would then ask Sarah to join him on his travels and the two would go on many more adventures through time and space, encountering the Daleks and the Ice Warriors along the way.

When they returned in late 1974, the Doctor and Sarah would be forced to help UNIT deal with another alien invasion. The Giant Spiders of Metebelis 3’s Queen hoped to complete her super weapon that would allow her to conquer the Galaxy. She needed the final blue crystal which the Doctor had stolen from her on a previous expedition to Metebelis 3 to power it. Unfortunately for the Queen however, when the Doctor handed the crystal back to her (after her attack on earth), the weapon proved to be too unstable and destroyed her instead by burning out her mind.

Sadly the Doctor in order to hand over the crystal had been forced to enter her cave where he died from radiation poisoning. With his last breath the Third Doctor was able to make his way back to earth where he regenerated into his next incarnation inside UNIT HQ.

The Fourth Doctor would barely have time to settle into his new body when he and the Brigadier would be forced to deal with a new menace. This time from earth itself. Professor Kettlewell had devised a highly powerful robot that in some ways could think for itself and was virtually indestructable. The robot would fall into the care of a terrorist organisation who hoped to use the robot to kick start a third world war. The Doctor and the Brigadier were able to foil these plans and arrest the terrorists, but unfortunately the robot having developed its own mind and plans, still wished to exterminate all of humanity. The Brigadier in an attempt to rescue Sarah (who the robot had developed some affection for.) Fired a special disintegrator ray that Kettlewell had devised as a weapon for the robot. However this simply altered the robots body to the point where it grew to over 100 feet tall. The Robot would rampage its way across England, before the Doctor was able to destroy the monster using a virus, created by Kettlewell himself which was able to eat the Robot away to nothing but rust.

The Doctor would then resume his travels alongside Sarah and Harry Sullivan, a Doctor from UNIT as his new companions, leaving the Brigadier to cover up the robots rampage.

The Doctor, Sarah and Harry would return to earth in October 1975 after being summoned by the Brigadier. The threat in question was a race of alien shapeshifters, known as the Zygons. The Zygons home planet had been destroyed by a solar flare and the creatures were looking for a new home. A scout ship had arrived on the earth many centuries ago in Loch Ness in Scotland. The Zygons, had also taken one of the many gigantic, Dinosaur like creatures from their home planet called the Skarasen. They genetically engineered the creature to be far larger, and later cybernetically augmented its body too.

The Zygons did this for two reasons. First and foremost they needed the Skarasan’s lactic fluid as a source of food. Rather than breed several dangerous Skarasan’s this way they’d have one that would not only be larger and could produce enough lactic fluid for millions of Zygons in a year, but it was also now practically immortal too. Furthermore as part of its brain was now mechanical, then the Zygons could control the Skarasan much more easily.

The Zygons intended to use the Skarasan as a weapon to conquer mankind. Over the decades as the Zygons prepared their invasion, sightings of the Skarasan in Loch Ness would lead to the creations of myths about the Loch Ness Monster. The Zygons intended to terrorform the earth to resemble their own planet years ago. They also waned kill off most of humanity but leave some of them alive as a slave labor force. The Doctor was able to destroy the Zygon’s base with the help of UNIT (the Brigadier personally shot their leader, the ruthless Broton dead.) The Doctor would then destroy the device the Zygon used to control the Skarasan, before it could enact Broton’s final command to destroy humanity. The monster would then retreat back to Loch Ness, the only home it knew where it would remain for thousands of years.

Later in 1975, the Fourth Doctor and Sarah would arrive on Venus. Since the Doctors last visit, the last of the Mekons mutant monsters had escaped and was now terrorizing both the Treens and the Therons.

Quatermass’ chemical had killed almost all of the Mekon’s mutants, and those that weren’t killed by the chemical were destroyed when the base exploded, except for one creature that would come to be known as the Silicon Mass.

This creature had been created from a similar process to the Ymir, with the Mekon hoping it could overcome the previous monsters failings. It was only in the gestation period however when Quatermass’ chemical poisoned it, and the combination of the chemical and explosion altered the monsters body in ways even the Mekon wouldn’t have wanted.

The creature much like the Ymir kept growing, but unlike the Ymir, it never grew into an actual animal. It remained a large blob of white silicon that was virtually indestructable. It could devour just about anything in its path, with all of the Treens and the Therons warships and the mightiest reptiles of the Treens jungles succumbing to the mutant.

The Therons and the Treens had been forced to unite, much to the Mekon’s annoyance. The Mekon believed in the superiority of his race to such an extent that he genuinely believed that they didn’t need any help until it was almost too late.

The Doctor agreed to help the Treens and the Therons, obviously feeling responsible for the monsters creation. The Mekon still not only wanted the Doctor dead, but also to try and weaponize the Silicon Mass.

The Doctor was able to create a weapon that he believed would unravel the Silicon Mass’ DNA. The Mekon however would betray the Doctor, and take control of the Theron craft the Doctor was going to fire the weapon, after the Time Lord fired the weapon at the beast, and made it crash into the Mass’ body where it was absorbed. The Doctor and Sarah were the only two survivors, being able to jump onto a large tree from the ship in time.

The Doctors weapon did not work completely. It stopped the beasts growth, and weakened it, but it did not die. Still a barrage of fire from the Treens weakened the monster further and it eventually retreated into a molten lake. The Treens believed that it died, but in truth the monster simply went into a state of suspended animation beneath the lava.

It would awake many decades later. In that time it would actually mutate to be even more powerful, but fortunately it was far less aggressive, and would in fact live a mostly solitary existence for the rest of its life in the lake. The Silicon Mass would however consume anything that came near the lake. The Mekon would attempt to recapture it several times, but it was too powerful even for the Treens and remained in its new home for millions of years afterwards.

The Mekon was able to capture fragments of the Silicon Mass’ DNA during the various battles with the beast, and use them to create hundreds of clones of the creature. The Mekon intended, whilst they were still in their gestation period, to fire them in rockets at earth where they would grow to full size and completely destroy the planet. He would also keep several of them preserved for conquest of other worlds. Fortunately the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane would, with the aid of several Therons, destroy the Mekons new lab and all of its clones of the Silicon Mass.

The Mekon would still be able to send several rockets containing clones of the Silicon Mass to earth, but with the Therons help the Doctor was able to shoot them all down before they reached earth.

The Silicon Mass’ rampage had further set the Mekon back. It would be a long while before the Treens would be able to strike out against any world, and the Mekon after his recent failure would be forced to deal with several rebellious Treens in the ensuing years.

The Fourth Doctor would decide after several more adventures in time and space with Sarah decide to take a break in Old Mill Cottage. However he made a slight mistake in calculations and arrived there four years on from Sarah’s time in 1980.

The Doctor discovered that Sarah had been on the missing persons list since 1976. She was last spotted working with UNIT in late 76. As soon as the Doctor found this out, he knew that he would have to take Sarah back to 1976 for a few more missions with UNIT before taking her back to 1980 (whenever she wanted to stop travelling with him.)

In 1976, after a few more detours (including to stop Sutekh in 1911.) The Fourth Doctor and Sarah would reunite with UNIT once again to deal with a race known as the Kraals, who sought to conquer the earth using android replicas to infiltrate human society.

The Doctor was able to foil their plan, ironically by using one of their replica’s against them. A few months later the Doctor would call on UNIT this time to help him deal with an even greater threat, plant monsters called the Krynoids.

The Krynoids were a hostile race who travelled through space in pods. They’d quickly spread over entire planets in a matter of months and destroy all life on them.

The Doctor was able to destroy one of two pods, but unfortunately the other was shipped from the Antarctic back to England by Harrison Chase, an eccentric millionaire with a twisted obsession with plants. The Krynoid was able to escape Harrison and consumed his entire estate. The Doctor with UNIT’s help was able to blow the monster to pieces before it could spread any further.

Not long after the Krynoid invasion, Crypto and the Brigadier would be forced to work with Department Q to deal with an invasion from Werewolves.

Werewolves were created many thousands of years ago by a race of proud warriors known as the Lycors. The Lycors had once been powerful warriors who fought for other races for causes they deemed worthy. Whilst they took pride in being great warriors, their victories were really down to their advanced technology more than anything else.

They soon stagnated however, as they came to believe their own hype that they were the greatest warriors and other races soon began to overtake them. Furthermore races from all over the universe would arrive to challenge the Lycors.

They would suffer a string of humiliating defeats and invasions and became a joke throughout the known universe. Desperate to make up for their failures, the Lycrors would attack the Furons to try and prove themselves. It was a mistake of course as even at their strongest, the Furons were still too powerful for them. In order to win the war, the Lycors would experiment on themselves. They would attempt to fuse their DNA with that of various Demons and monsters using a combination of science and powerful magical enchantments, drawn from lunar cycles.

These experiments would allow their soldiers to transform into savage, hairy, lupine like creatures armed with the strength and supernatural powers of various Demons (their lupine forms came from the DNA of a gigantic Wolf like predator that lived on their world.)

The Lycors could change into these creatures whenever they wished. They would also retain their intelligence, morals and will power when they did, and finally they could also change back into their original forms too (where they would still be stronger, faster, and have vastly longer life spans.)

However at the same time, as the magic to create the beasts came from the lunar cycles, then they would automatically turn into their wolf form on the night of the full moon. Furthermore as their power did come from Demons, then they would, even in their humanoid forms start to have more violent and destructive urges.  However they felt these were easily controlled.

In their wolf like forms, the Lycors would defeat the Furons and drive them out of the galaxy. It was without doubt the biggest defeat the Furons had ever experienced in their entire history at that point. The Lycors would be hailed as heroes for many centuries afterwards, but sadly the Demonic urges of their lupine forms would slowly begin to overtake later generations (who inherited the “curse”) Over time the Lycors would give into their urges and descend into nothing more than another race of Demons called Werewolves. Many of them would actually spend all of their time in their lupine forms.

The Werewolves would attack various other worlds, wiping out whole races, and infecting others (as they could spread their curse through their bite like a poison too.) Over the centuries they would come into conflict with the Vampires, as both species wished to prove themselves as the ultimate Demons.

This rivalry would become so intense that it would later pass on instinctively to other Vampires and Werewolves.

The Werewolves greatest enemies however would be the Furons who were desperate for revenge and would hunt them all over the universe. The Werewolves, due to their savage animalistic nature were not able to build up a strong empire. They were essentially barbarians who would loot countless planets, but never really make much use of the technology of various worlds in the same way that Vampires did.

The Furons would slaughter scores of Werewolves, but the monsters would still survive and spread out to planets all over the universe as all it would take would be one Werewolf to infect others. (Among the many planets that the Werewolves would visit included earth, where one Werewolf crash landed at an early point in human history. It would go on to infect others leading to the spread of Werewolves and subsequently legends about Werewolves all across the world.)

Not all Werewolves across all of the world would be monsters however. Many of them were able to control their demonic urges.

The Werewolves who invaded the earth in the year 1976 were actually among the original Werewolves. Having survived for so long, these monsters had sadly given into their darker urges and were now every bit as evil as the Furons themselves.

The Werewolves had monitored Crypto and Orthopox’s activities for some time and after learning what they were after (through the torture of a former Majestic agent) decided to destroy the earth to wipe out the Furon race.

They foolishly believed that this would allow them to be seen as heroes to the wider universe again for destroying the Furons.

Crypto would be forced to go to UNIT HQ in Geneva for help. As soon as the Grey Alien arrived however, UNIT attempted to capture him (with Crypto being one of UNIT’s most wanted criminals alongside the Master himself.)

Still after the Geneva HQ was destroyed by the Werewolves, with only the Brigadier escaping, then the Brig would be forced to work with Crypto

With UNIT ill equipped to deal with these extraterrestrial creatures, the Brig and Crypto would be forced to work with Department Q to battle the Werewolves all around the world. The two would also be forced to work with a pack of Vampires on earth led by the worlds oldest Vampire, the last of the original Vampires who ruled over humanity in earth’s prehistory. A Vampire known as Goralag (though he had gone through various other names throughout the history of earth and was currently known as Vincent Lee.)

Vincent, the Brigadier and Crypto would destroy the Werewolf invasion force from their base on Mars, though their leader would escape, vowing revenge on Crypto.

After the Werewolf invasion, the Brigadier would make sure the UNIT always had a healthy supply of silver bullets after the devastation of the Geneva base. Department Q would also work with UNIT a lot more closely from this point on, with UNIT now realizing that aliens would be capable of using the paranormal just as much as humanity.

Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart would retire from UNIT not long after the Werewolf invasion. Overwork, and his first marriage breaking down led to him quitting his position.

He would take up a job teaching afterwards, hoping for a more quiet life. Unfortunately however the Brigadiers past, or rather his future would soon catch up with him. In late 76 the Brigadier would encounter the Doctors two companions, Teegan and Nyssa who had become separated from the Doctor. The Brigadier agreed to help them, and when they returned to the TARDIS, they found a strange, hideously mutated alien claiming to be the Doctor, whose latest regeneration had gone wrong. The Brigadier had doubts, but seeing the alien was in pain they agreed to help him.

The alien, whose real name was Mawdryn was part of a failed experiment from another race to gain the Time Lords ability to regenerate, which had instead left them trapped in a hideous emaciated form, unable to die. The aliens hoped to use the Doctors companions to lure him into a trap. Only the regeneration energy from a Time Lord could end their lives of constant agony. Doing so however would effectively kill the Doctor too.

When the Fifth Doctor arrived from the future, with a future version of the Brigadier, the future Brig met his previous self, creating a temporal paradox which was enough to kill Mawydrn and the rest of the aliens. The parodox also wiped much of the Brigadier from 1976’s memory too, including virtually all of his years with UNIT. The Doctor would return both Brigadiers to the correct time periods. Later in 1983, the Brigadiers memory of all of his years with UNIT would be restored by a visit from the Fifth Doctor.

7 years after his encounter with Mawdryn, the Brigadiers memories of his time with UNIT are restored after a visit from his best friend, the Doctor.

The Fourth Doctor would later in 1977 battle the last of the Fendahl. The creatures skull was found by a group of human scientists, and it was slowly able to take control of one of them named Thea, slowly transforming her into a Fendahleen. The 4th Doctor and his companion Leela were able to destroy the Fendahleen before she could grow in power, and then disposed of the Fenahl skull, by depositing it in a black hole. The skull however survived and would later arrive on the planet of Kaldor in the 23rd century.

In 1979, the Fourth Doctor, and the Second Romana would travel to Paris for a holiday, only to encounter the final splintered version of Scaroth.

Scaroth, and the last of his people, the Jageroth, had arrived on earth before any life had developed on it. Their ship had been badly damaged, and whilst Scaroth was advised by his men to make repairs, he was scared that they were exposed on this uninhabited planet, and took off. The ship subsequently exploded, and all of the Jageroth were killed, except for Scaroth, who was splintered into different versions across time throughout earth’s history. Each of these different versions of Scaroth had helped to push humanity forward technologically in the hopes that the human race could invent a time machine, which would allow the latest version to go back and time and stop his earlier self from taking off too early.

Unfortunately however it was the radiation from the exploding Jageroth ship which caused a mutation in the primordial soup on earth, which eventually developed into the first, simple celled life forms, from which all life on the planet would descend.

Scaroth of course didn’t care about erasing humanity from existence, considering them to be inferior scum. The latest version of Scaroth went under the alias of the respected count, Scarlioni and he used this title to acquire the resources to try and build his time machine.

As soon as he encountered the Doctor and Romana, he forced Romana to build a time machine for him, by threatening to destroy all of Paris.

Whilst Scaroth was able to travel back, the Doctor, Romana and private detective named Duggan, were able to follow him there and stop him before he could change history.

Arriving back in 1979, Scaroth who was in his true, Jageroth form, was killed by one of his henchmen who threw a grenade at him in fear, which destroyed the time machine as well.

Towards the end of 1979, Crypto 139 and Orthopox would face a new enemy, a renegade Furon named the Master. The Master hoped to become the new Furon emperor and kill Crypto and Orthopox in the process. He also intended to destroy humanity, to prevent them from having a hold over the Furon people. Crypto and Orthopox (who at that point were down on their luck and living in a casino!) Were able to stop his plans, and kill the Master, with Orthopox becoming the new emperor.

Orthopox’s reign as the emperor would usher in a new golden age for the Furons, though it would also lead to their greatest defeat many decades later.

1980s

In 1980 the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith would encounter the disembodied spirit of an ancient creature named Eldrad. Eldrad had once ruled Kastria but after aliens invaded the planet, he was banished to the earth. Though his body died, his mind would remain buried under the earth for millions of years, before being finally freed by a drilling experiment.

Eldrad would briefly take control of Sarah, before using radiation to create a new form. (Basing it on Sarah’s, the first body he found, Eldrad briefly assumed a female form.) Eldrad told the Doctor that she needed to get back to her planet to help them from the aliens, and though he had doubts the Doctor eventually agreed.

When they arrived back on Kastria, they found the planet utterly devastated. It was not possible to live on the surface anymore, and when the Doctor, Sarah and Eldrad made their way through, seemingly the only Kastrian facility left, they were beset by booby traps.

When they finally made their way past them, the Doctor discovered from Eldrad (who also turned herself back into a man.) That there were no alien invaders. In fact Eldrad had been a cruel tyrant who had destroyed the surface of their planet when they attempted to rebel.

It was in fact the Kastrians who attempted to destroy Eldrad. Eldrad revealed that he had databanks containing enough DNA to create an army of billions of Kastrians to invade the universe.

However Eldrad discovered much to his horror that the Kastrians in the millions of years he had been away, destroyed the data banks and wiped themselves out.

A message from King Rokon, told Eldard that the Kastrians didn’t think life was worth living on the planet after he devastated it, and knowing that he had survived, and could always return to make them into monsters, who would wage war against the rest of the universe, they actually felt oblivion was their only escape.

In the final moments of his message, Rokon taunted his old enemy stating “I salute you from the dead. Hail Eldrad. King of nothing!”

Eldrad didn’t give up however. Instead he wanted to make the earth people his new army to rule the universe. The Doctor and Sarah however would defeat Eldrad by knocking the monster down a ravine, using the Doctors scarf!

As soon as the Doctor and Sarah left Kastria, the Doctor received a message from Gallifrey telling him he had to return (in reality it was his archenemy, the Master attempting to lure him into a trap.) As he couldn’t take Sarah with him at that time, he was forced to drop her back on earth in 1980.

The Doctor was sad to part from Sarah and thought about going back for her afterwards, but he felt that she had moved on with her life. Still he would later leave her a present in the form of K9 mark 3, a robot dog from the future.

With K9 as her sidekick, Sarah would go on many more adventures of her own, tracking down extraterrestrial and paranormal threats. She would go on to meet many later incarnations of the Doctor, with the Time Lord always regarding her as one of his best friends.

Later that year the Tenth Doctor would help Jasmine defeat a powerful and dangerous race of aliens known as the Reslacor. The Reslacor were predatory telepaths who fed on psychic energy. They would attack a life form telepathically and slowly drain its mind, killing it in an exceptionally painful way.

Physically they were very frail and weak, but it didn’t matter as their mental attacks could kill their victims before they’d even have a chance against them.

The monsters began attacking London, slaughtering people, and driving others insane in the streets, but the Doctor and Jasmine were immune to the aliens attacks. The Doctor because he was a Time Lord (Time Lords were capable of placing barriers around their minds) whilst the experiments on Jasmine’s mind by the Daleks rendered her immune.

After the invasion was foiled Jasmine would join the Tenth Doctor as his new companion.

Towards the end of 1980 the Doctor and the Masters feud would reach new heights with devastating consequences for all of N-Space.

The Master and the Doctor had faced on another on the planet Traken, where the Master (now on his 13th life, and nearing death) hoped to steal the ancient power of Traken which would make him virtually omnipotent. He also hoped to trap the Doctors mind in the core of his TARDIS, which would allow him to drain the Doctors knowledge of his travels, after which he would then leave him trapped there forever.

The Doctor however managed to foil the Masters plans, and seemingly finished the villain, by destroying his TARDIS. Unfortunately however the Master survived, and with his second TARDIS disguised as a grandfather clock, the Master, using the last of the power of Traken he had absorbed, was able to transplant his consciousness into the body of Tremas, a kindly old man, and father of the Doctors future companion, Nyssa.

The power of Traken had altered the Masters mind permanently however, which would allow him to deposit his mind in other bodies in the future.

The Master prolongs his own miserable existence at the cost of Tremas’ life.

The Master in Tremas body would follow the Doctor to earth, hellbent on revenge. He would fuse his TARDIS with the Doctors to try and set a trap for his archfoe, but whilst the Doctor was able to separate the two TARDIS’, still the Master was able to retrieve information from the TARDIS’ memory banks, and learned where Logopolis was (as the Doctor had intended to travel there.)

Logopolis was an ancient planet, said to contain an ancient power and secret. Naturally the Master wanted to know what it was for his own purposes, so he arrived on Logopolis and began to wreck havoc on the planet until they told him what their secret was. Unfortunately the Master interrupted one of their experiments which would lead to the destruction of billions of worlds.

N-Space had in fact lived long past its original life span. Entropy should have consumed it centuries ago, but the Logopolitans had found a way to contain it with their computers until another solution could be found.

With the computers inadvertently destroyed by the Master, the entropy spread out across N-Space destroying billions of planets (among them Traken.) It is not known just how many worlds where destroyed by the entropy, but it is believed that over a quarter of N-Space was reduced to nothing, making the Master the biggest mass murderer in the history of N-Space.

The Doctor and the Master would be forced to work together to stop the entropy from destroying all of N-Space. Using technology salvaged from the Logopolitans (who had all perished) fused with technology from the Time Lords, and earth too, the Doctor and the Master, from a satelite dish on earth, were able to divert the entropy into E-Space. (The entropy would not destroy E-Space as it was a different universe, but it did have an unforeseen negative consequence.)

The Master however attempted to weaponize the entropy first. Having found a way to control it, the Master threatened to unleash it back into N-Space unless the most powerful races of the universe served him. Fortunately the Doctor was able to deposit the entropy into E-Space permanently.

The Master in response would push the Doctor off the top of the satelite dish, which killed his 4th incarnation.

In the original version of events the Doctor would simply regenerate into his 5th incarnation.

However years later, a future incarnation of the Master would attempt to change history by tampering with the Fourth Doctors demise.

This version of the Master had stolen technology from the Celestial Intervention Agency (with his latest body being a member of the Celestial Intervention Agency), and he was able to pinpoint what would be the best part of his timeline to change. He saw that if he never went to Logopolis, then he would eventually end up as the High President of the Time Lords. The technology wasn’t perfect. It could only give you a vision of a potential timeline, not the entire history of it, but in this instance the Master was able to pin point where this timeline would begin.

The Master met his old Tremas incarnation and told him to give up on his vendetta against the Doctor for now. The Tremas Master found it difficult, with his hatred for his former friend being all that had kept him going for the last few years. Still he agreed, and time changed.

Logopolis was never destroyed, and neither were billions of other worlds such as Traken. The Fourth Doctor would not regenerate either and he would continue travelling with Adric.

Eventually just as in the original timeline, Adric would long to return home to E-Space, and just as in the original timeline whilst the Doctor would be reluctant at first, he would agree to help him go home. Whilst in E-Space the two would reunite with Romana (still in her second incarnation.)

The Doctor and Romana, having always had feelings for one another, fell in love and eventually they got married in E-Space and had three children. The two had a more happy, quiet life together, though once their children became old enough, they would resume their adventures and explore E-Space again.

The Master meanwhile, following his older self’s advice would fake his death, and then recruit other renegade Time Lords for his cause, including the Monk, the Rani, and the War Chief (all of whom the elder Master knew.) He was also able to make an alliance with Borusa (who the Master from the future knew was corrupt) by showing him his future, trapped as a statue in the Death Zone, and assured him he could help the Time Lord change his destiny.

With the renegades help, the Master would succeed in conquering Gallifrey. Borusa was of course disposed of, but the Master would keep his word to the other renegades and put them in high positions in his new Gallifreyan society. The War Chief was made the head of the Gallifreyan army, the Rani was made the head of the scientific elite, the Monk the head of the new Celestial Intervention Agency, whilst the Master became the new lord President.

The Time Lords would build up a massive empire under the Masters guidance. In time their influence spread out to trillions of worlds, including Logopolis and earth. They would also seemingly destroy the Daleks too.

The Masters new Time Lord empire would do many good things across the universe at first. It helped to cure diseases, thanks to the Monks actions it would help various races avoid disasters and catastrophes around the universe. It would also unite various races together (though they were all still under the Time Lords.) The inventions of the Rani would also help to elevate many worlds across the universe in a way they never would have otherwise.

Peace would be brought to many galaxies, but power would soon go to the Masters head and it would corrupt him to a greater extent than ever before.

He would punish entire worlds if there was any attempt at resistance. Many of what the Master considered to be lesser races, would also be subject to horrific experiments under the Rani as well (including humanity, though this was really more to spite the Doctor.)

As time went on the Master would become more paranoid, and unstable too. He would destroy entire worlds for the most trivial reasons. He also murdered the War Chief, when he (incorrectly) believed that he was plotting against him. The empire would fall into complete chaos, but it would soon face a greater danger from the old enemy of the Time Lords, the Daleks.

A few Daleks had managed to escape the Time Lords attack on their empire. At that point they were drastically behind the Time Lords in terms of technology, and so the Time Lords easily crushed them. Still a few Daleks had not only managed to escape to another universe, but they also rescued Davros (who was at that point imprisoned by humanity.)

Fleeing to another universe, the Daleks and Davros would build up a massive empire, as big as the Time Lords. However where as the Masters empire had collapsed due to his own paranoia, the Daleks had thrived, as the monsters were all united under a single cause. Also unlike the Master, the Daleks did not have to deal with rebellions, as they either completely exterminated the races they took over, or experimented on them until they could no longer be a threat.

The Daleks after conquering most of this universe, would launch an attack against the Time Lords. The war raged on for thousands of years, and would leave both universes completely devastated. Most life forms in both universes were destroyed in the cross fire, but eventually the Daleks would gain the upper hand and push the Time Lords back to Gallifrey. Not wanting to lose to Davros and the Daleks, the Master would activate his ultimate weapon. Created by the Rani’s experiments from the Eye of Harmony, the weapon was able to expand the power of the eye to the point where it would create a black hole that would eventually consume all of N-Space.

The Master had only installed the weapon to automatically go off if he died. He didn’t want Gallifrey to go on if he died (the Master had granted himself a new cycle of regenerations and intended to keep granting himself more for all eternity.)

Just before the Daleks broke into the citadel (having utterly laid waste to Gallifrey) and killed the Master, the Master sent a message to Davros simply telling him “I win”. The device would destroy all of N-Space and the universe the Daleks had moved to as well.

Fortunately however before the Daleks killed the Master, the Monk was able to pull Romana 12 and the 10th Doctor from the original timeline. Knowing that the Master had changed history, the Monk had wanted to pull the Doctor from the original timeline to help against the Daleks (with none of the Time Lords having any idea where he had gone.)

The Master refused however. No one on Gallifrey was even allowed to mention the Doctors name under the Masters rule.

Still the Monk under desperate circumstances during the Time Lords final strike was able to bring Romana 12 and the 10th Doctor into this timeline. With only a limited amount of time to set things right, the two were unable to help the Time Lords against the Daleks. Just before Gallifrey was destroyed, the Doctor and Romana would flee to E-Space. The two hoped that they could find their counterparts and find out what caused the change to the timeline.

Sure enough Romana and the Doctor would find their counterparts, married with children and still in their 4th and 2nd incarnations, but now much older.

The 10th Doctor and 12th Romana attempted to convince the two to go back and change things (after finding out that the change occurred when this Doctor never went to Logopolis.)

In the changed timeline, the 4th Doctor never regenerated, lived to a ripe old age, married Romana and had 3 children in E-Space. 

The elder 2nd Romana and 4th Doctor refused however, as that would erase their children from existence. The alternate 4th Doctor did not want to be responsible for bringing the Master to Logopolis which would destroy worlds. The 10th Doctor understood. The guilt had haunted him for centuries since.  Unfortunately however, some of the Daleks were able to survive the destruction of N-Space, by travelling to E-Space. The monsters quickly rebuilt their forces and begun to wage war on E-Space.

They were far more advanced than any other race in E-Space, and the Daleks would go on to destroy many millions of worlds in this universe (including Deita, Romana’s favourite world.) The two Romana’s and the two Doctors tried to stop the Daleks, but these Daleks were far more powerful than the Daleks they had ever faced before, as they had the time to dominate all other life forms in two universes!

Romana 2, would be killed in the fight, and whilst the Fourth Doctor would be able to get his children to safety from the Daleks, he ultimately decided that he would have to set the time line right to save 3, and undoubtedly many more universes from the Daleks.

The Doctor kissed his children goodbye. He didn’t let them know what he would be doing (and they had no idea. They didn’t even know who the later versions of Romana and the Doctor even were.) They suspected something was wrong because of how upset he was, but the Doctor simply told his children that he had something to take care of and would be back later.

Romana 12 and the Tenth Doctor sadly couldn’t travel back as they were from a timeline that no longer existed. Their very presence was so unstable that they could fade at any moment. The alternate Fourth Doctor, thanks to the Masters changes was the current Doctor, and so he was the only one who could change his own timeline.

The Tenth Doctor and Romana 12 are pulled into the alternate timeline to help set things right.

The older Fourth Doctor was able to stop the Master from meeting his younger self and changing things so that the villain would never go to Logopolis. However he soon found that this still wasn’t enough to change the timeline and that he would have to influence his past self’s actions too.

Being from a hypothetical future that had already been changed by his actions in stopping the Master, the alternate Fourth Doctor soon slowly began to fade into nothing. He took on a ghostly appearance as a result, but would still be able to influence the world around him to a limited extent, albeit only for short periods. He would refer to himself in this state simply as the Watcher.

Image result for the watcher doctor who

The aged, alternate Fourth Doctor begins to fade the more actions he takes to erase his past until he becomes a ghostly figure existing between timelines. He would come to refer to himself as the Watcher.

The Watcher would contact the current younger Fourth Doctor telepathically whilst on earth and the two soon met away from the Doctors companion Adric. The Watcher informed his earlier self that he needed to go to Logopolis to avoid a terrible future. The Doctor at that point had considered not going to Logopolis after the Master had merged his TARDIS with the Doctors on earth. The Doctor was concerned that the Master could follow him to Logopolis, still the Watcher assured his past self that he would have to go to Logopolis to avert a bad future.

The Watcher also informed the Doctor that very soon he would regenerate too. After the Doctor made it to Logopolis, the Watcher would then take Nysaa away from Traken to Logopolis to be reunited with the Doctor. Thanks to the Watchers actions, history would subsequently follow its original path, with the Master destroying Logopolis, the entropy destroying several worlds, the Doctor ejecting the entropy into E-Space, and finally the Master throwing the Fourth Doctor off of the satelite to his death.

As the Fourth Doctor regenerated on the grass below, the Watcher merged into him, with the Watchers timeline now being erased from history. The newly regenerated Fifth Doctor would have no memory of his other life as the Watcher however and the memories would not return throughout any future incarnations of the Doctor, until after the 10th Doctors adventure in the alternate time. This would of course only increase the Doctors hatred of the Master for making him erase his children.

Time is set on the correct course thanks to the Watcher’s actions. With his past erased, the Watcher is absorbed into the Fourth Doctor as he regenerates into his successor.

The newly regenerated Fifth Doctor, Nyssa, Teegan and Adric would soon be pursued by the authorities for trespassing on the satelite. Whilst the Doctor, Nyssa and Teegan managed to escape back to the TARDIS, Adric was arrested.

The Master, still hungry for revenge slaughtered the guards and captured Adric, before seemingly letting him go.

In truth however the Master was simply projecting an illusion of Adric into the Doctors TARDIS to control it from the inside, whilst he still kept the real Adric prisoner.

The false Adric piloted the TARDIS back to before God created the universe so that the explosion would destroy it.

The Master taunted the Doctors companions as the heat slowly began to melt the TARDIS, projecting an image of himself on their scanner, laughing at their fate.

Fortunately Nyssa and Teegan, under the still weakened Fifth Doctors instructions were able to pilot the TARDIS to safety. Unfortunately the Master had prepared for this and was able to lure the TARDIS to an uninhabited planet.

The Master had salvaged tech from Logopolis that he could use to create illusions, so strong they could actually interact with the world around them, and even think for themselves.

The Master still needed a living being at the centre of the machine, and chose the Doctors companion Adric to use.

The Master tortured Adric until he created the illusion of himself to sabotage the TARDIS. (Though even then Adric, despite the torture was able to project a warning to Nyssa in time which ultimately saved her and her companions lives.)

The Master however using Adric as his pawn was able to create an entire city from the boys mind called Castrovalva that he used to trap the Doctor, Nyssa and Teegan.

The Master hoped to condemn his 4 enemies to an eternity of torment, by making them relive the same moment over and over again. The Doctor, having now fully recovered from his regeneration was able to break free from the Masters program, though not from Castrovalva itself.

Now driven over the edge with rage at his plans failing, the Master attempted to beat the Doctor to death with a crowbar, but whilst he was distracted one of the Castrolvalvans, sacrificed himself to destroy the Logopolitan tech.

Following its destruction, Castrovalva began to fade from existence, and whilst the Doctor, Adric, Nyssa and Teegan were able to escape, the Master was cornered by the Castrovalvans, who began to tear him apart.

Sadly whilst the Doctor believed he had seen the last of his mortal foe, the Master had been able to escape the Castrovalvans simply because they faded before they could kill him.

A few years later in 1983, the Fifth Doctor would encounter the Master once again, when he had forged an alliance with another of the Doctors old enemies, the Mekon!

The Mekon and the Treens at this stage were far behind the Therons after the attack from the Silicon Mass.

Knowing that they were in no state to take on anyone, the Mekon decided to pit their two most immediate enemies against each other, humanity and the Therons.

The Master meanwhile, having infiltrated UNIT (through disguises and a new advanced form of hypnosis, which also allowed him to place the new Brigadier under his control), was able to read about the Mekon in UNIT’s files. He believed that the Mekon would be a powerful ally in finally conquering humanity, and destroying his most hated enemy.

The Master and the Mekon formulated a plan that would end in the extermination of the Therons, and allow him to rule the earth afterwards on the condition that neither he nor the Mekon would attack each other. Of course they both had every intention of stabbing the other in the back, but for now they agreed to work together.

First of all the Mekon captured several earth astronauts on a deep space space mission. Keeping them hidden beneath his city on Venus in a secret compartment that not even the Therons, or indeed his fellow Treens were aware of (the Mekon only kept them alive for experimentation.) The Mekon had built this compartment as a place to hide if Venus was ever invaded by a hostile race of aliens, and there was no other escape for him.

The Mekon with the Master’s help, deliberately left a trail back to Venus. Of course UNIT kept it quiet from the general public, but they soon came into contact with the Therons and demanded the release of the astronauts. The Therons suspected the Treens were behind this attack, and demanded to search their city. Of course they found nothing, with the Mekon feigning innocence.

Back home, the Masters hypnotized aids in UNIT would help stoke up fear and resentment among UNIT against the Venusians, bringing up their past attacks on the earth with monsters such as the Ymir.

The Doctor meanwhile had been called back to UNIT by the new Brigadier, (under the Master’s command) who was able to lure the Time Lord and Nyssa into a trap. He attempted to have them shot (with other brainwashed UNIT soldiers), but the two managed to escape. The two would then go to Quatermass, the Doctors old friend for help. Quatermass would help keep both the Doctor and Nyssa hidden whilst using British Rocket Group’s resources to investigate what was going on with UNIT. The Doctor and Quatermass agreed that it would be better not to contact UNIT as they had no idea who if anyone they could trust there, with both suspecting that UNIT may have been corrupted somehow and behind the attempt to provoke a war.

The new Brigadier under the Masters command would eventually convince UNIT HQ to approve a missile strike on Venus. The Master would of course make sure that the missile’s were sabotaged so that they were all directed towards the Theron’s city. Millions of Therons were killed in the strike.

The Mekon was then able to stoke up fear with the Therons stating that humanity could wipe them out if they didn’t strike first, as humanity had over the last few decades salvaged technology from highly advanced species who had invaded them such as the Daleks and the Cybermen, and that they had help from the Doctor, a member of the most advanced race in the universe.

The Therons despite their moral code, agreed out of fear, with the missile strike being the worst attack in their history. They allowed the Mekon to fire a new superweapon he had devised. The Mekon had managed to create another large monster from samples of the still dormant Silicon Mass’ DNA. The Therons however having found out about the project, shut it down, though the Mekon still kept a sample. The Mekon knew that he couldn’t do anything with the monster until the time was right. He didn’t want to unleash another Silicon Mass like creature on Venus to destroy the Therons, as again they would be able to detect its presence and kill it before it could reach full size, and he knew that if he tried to fire one at earth, the Therons with their superior technology, would be able to detect, and shoot it down before it even escaped Venus’ atmosphere.

Now however terrified for their own survival, the Therons would fire a capsule containing the Mekon’s creature at the earth. Of course following this, the Master would then use the attack to launch an attack on the Theron’s city using an advanced weapon that UNIT had spent decades building.

The Mekon had also given the Master chemicals he needed to destroy the new Silicon Mass. Unlike with the first time, the Mekon had time to examine its DNA, and could create chemicals to destroy the beast. The Master would use the Mekon’s chemical only after it had killed millions of humans to harden their hearts against the Therons.

Following this, the Master and the Mekon would then sit back and watch the two races war with each other, (with the Master and the Mekon secretly helping both sides to keep them even until they were both so weak, the Mekon could overrun and finish off the Therons, whilst the Master could emerge on earth and take over.

After this of course they would then war with each other. The Mekon had intended to create a new silicon creature (one who would be immune to the Masters chemicals) whilst the Master would use UNIT’s most powerful weapons to destroy the Treens and the Mekon.

Fortunately the Doctor, working with Quatermass was able to make his way into UNIT, where the Doctor was able to free the new Brigadier from the Masters influence. With the new Brig’s help, they were able to capture the Master and use the Mekon’s chemical to destroy the new Silicon creature (though not before it killed up to 1 million people across England in the most devastating giant monster attack the country would ever see.)

The Master meanwhile managed to escape, killing the new Brigadier in the process. The Doctor, Nyssa and Quatermass would follow the Master back to Venus. There the Mekon and the Master would set another trap for the three heroes. The Master hoped to hypnotize Bernard Quatermass and use him to help stir things up between the two races. (With the Master having killed the new Brigadier, no one would know that he was secretly behind his actions)

The Mekon succeeded in capturing the three heroes. He tried to execute the Doctor and Nyssa in his gas chamber, but the Doctor was able to escape, whilst Quatermass had been taken away to be hypnotized by the Master.

The Mekon decided to use Quatermass against the Doctor. Knowing he would come to rescue his friend, the Mekon gave Quatermass orders that if the three of them escaped he would unleash a Treen weapon inside the TARDIS that would kill the Doctor and Nyssa.

Sure enough the Doctor did rescue Quatermass from the Mekon’s torture chamber, whilst the Master would return to earth to make the UNIT staff under his control fire a missile at the Therons. The Mekon, who would detect the missile would in turn convince the Therons to fire their own at earth. This time however those not under the Masters control would object, as this drastic action had not been approved by Geneva and a fight would soon break out between those at UNIT loyal to the Master and those not.

The Doctor meanwhile evading the Treens attempts to kill him would find and rescue the earth astronauts in the Mekon’s city. Whilst they were escaping, the Doctor saw Quatermass abandon one of the astronauts who was injured. Knowing that his old friend would never abandon someone, the Doctor confronted Quatermass, and with Nyssa’s help was able to disconnect the Mekon’s weapon and free him from the Masters control.

Returning to earth, the Doctor was able to help the UNIT staff who were not under the Masters control fight back and eventually reclaim the base.

Unfortunately by that time the missile had been fired. Whilst Quatermass hurriedly returned to British Rocket Group to shoot it down, the Doctor landed back on Venus, and was able to convince the Therons not fire a rocket in retaliation, despite the Mekon’s attempts.

Quatermass succeeded in shooting down the Masters rocket, and the plans to provoke a war were foiled. Unfortunately the Master escaped once again, leaving the Mekon to face the consequences alone. The Therons demanded that the Mekon be deposed for his actions, but the Treens stood by their leader yet again.

The Therons could have beaten the Treens in a fight, but it still would have caused a lot of casualties and after the missile strike the will of the Theron people was gone, so they decided not to pursue it, but gave a stern warning to the Treens and the Mekon that he would be deposed if anything ever happened again.

The Fifth Doctor was not happy with the result, but sadly there was nothing he could do.

Later that same year the Fifth Doctor would come into conflict with his old enemy, Omega.  Omega, who had survived his first encounter with the three Doctors and had managed to escape back into our universe. Having altered his body to be able to survive in N-Space once again, Omega simply wanted to live in peace in N-Space, but unfortunately he soon began to return to his anti matter form.

If Omega returned to being anti matter completely then he would destroy all of N-Space, but the former founder of the Time Lords didn’t care. Having been alone for so long, and unable to cope with going back, Omega was happy to bring down all of N-Space with him.

The Doctor however with help from the Time Lords would send Omega back to his own universe before he could tear apart N-Space.

Towards the end of 1983 the Fifth Doctor would reunite with the now former Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart which would lead to a confrontation with the alien Mawdryn and Stewarts past self from 1976 (see 70s section.)

Once the former Brigadiers memories were restored, he would take up his old position with UNIT. The death of the previous Brigadier, as well as the scandal surrounding the Master and the Mekon’s recent attempts to provoke a war using UNIT personnel, had thrown the organisation into a state of disarray.

The return of Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart would help to unify the UNIT forces, though even then there were still some concerns that he was too old. Nevertheless, the Brigadier would soon prove his doubters wrong, and help usher in a new golden age for UNIT.

The following year in 1984, earth would face its greatest threat in the form of the Anti God himself.

The Anti God’s most evil son, Satan, was accidentally freed from the cylinder by a group of academics, a professor and a priest who discovered the cylinder buried deep beneath a church. Upon being freed Satan would soon possess several of the academics, and began to torture and kill them for its own amusement.

Satan torments the survivors.

Satan’s end game was to free its father, the Anti God, and as it slowly built its power up, the final survivors among the trapped humans would receive a warning from the future in the year 1999. The warning only appeared when they were dreaming. It was video footage of the Anti God, slowly emerging from a portal into the world.

The warnings from the future, coupled with the engravings on the crypt, slowly allowed the humans to put together the full extent of the threat they were facing.

Satan was able to regain his former strength after possessing a woman named Kelly, and created a portal in a mirror to bring its father into our universe.

Just as Satan was about to pull its father into N-Space, one of the surviving humans, Professor Catherine Danforth ambushed Satan from behind and pushed him through his own portal into the universe where the Anti God was imprisoned.

The Priest would then shatter the mirror that led to their universe with an axe, destroying the portal, and leaving Satan, the Anti God, and unfortunately Catherine trapped in the Anti God’s universe seemingly forever.

Catherine saves N-Space from Satan and the Anti God, but is damned forever as a result.

Catherine’s lover, Brian Marsh who saw her fall into the portal, but was powerless to save her, would be haunted by nightmares of Catherine emerging from the church in place of the Anti God. He became determined to save her, which would ultimately lead to disaster.

UNIT would of course cover the story up, but Martin Quatermass would later write an expose on the events.

Later in 1984, earth would be invaded by the Daleks once again. These Daleks came from the far future, from what was probably the monsters lowest point in their history.

The creatures had lost the war with the Movellans who had created a virus that attacked the Dalek mutations. With almost their entire empire having been destroyed, the Daleks first sought to rescue their creator Davros (who had been in the custody of humanity for 90 years) in the hopes that he could cure the plague.

They also hoped to use their robotic duplicates to infiltrate and invade earth in the 20th century. That way they could eliminate humanity in the past without drawing the attention of the Time Lords.

At the same time however, the Daleks planned to take the fight to the Time Lords themselves. They lured the Fifth Doctor and his companions, Teegan and Turlough to earth in their time corridor and then captured them with the help of their duplicates.

The Daleks intended to send the Doctor and his companions duplicates back to Gallifrey where they would assassinate the members of the high council and replace them with duplicates, allowing the Daleks to control the power of the Time Lords from within.

The Daleks plans however would be disrupted by Davros. Knowing that his creations would discard him once he had cured the Movellan plague. Davros was able to brainwash several of the Daleks and their human servants. He would send them back to earth to try and kill the Doctor, which would lead to a battle between Davros’ Daleks and those of the Supreme Dalek. The Doctor (who escaped the Daleks clutches thanks to the help of a rogue Dalek duplicate) was able to destroy both factions with a sample of the Movellan plague.

The renegade Dalek duplicate meanwhile back in the future would destroy the prison ship Davros had been held on. Whilst Davros was able to escape, the data the Daleks had drained painfully from the Doctors mind about the Time Lords was destroyed.

The Supreme Dalek still nevertheless told the Doctor that the Daleks plan had not failed. As they had duplicates all over the world (including in key positions of power) then they could eventually provoke another war that would destroy humanity.

Fortunately however the Doctor would be able to send a warning out to Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart who was eventually able to shutdown all of the duplicates or help them eventually break free from the Daleks control.

One of the Daleks human servants, Gustav Lytton had managed to escape in the final fight with the monsters. Lytton came from earth’s future, from a far flung earth colony. Despite coming from a race of hardened mercenaries, Lytton claimed that he never served the Daleks out of choice. Indeed the Dalek Supreme never trusted him, and actually, just before their 80s invasion of earth was foiled, ordered that Lytton be exterminated.

Lytton only managed to escape because the Daleks were too busy fighting one another. Still despite his reluctance at serving them, Lytton did kill many innocent people ruthlessly under the Daleks orders, and even tried to shoot the Doctor during the final battle.

Ultimately Lytton escaped to earth, but was left stranded in the past. Desperate for help, he sent out a distress signal through the vortex. It eventually reached the last of the Cryons, the original inhabitants of Telos in the year 1985.

The Cryons needed help to stop the Cybermen who, having been beaten back to Telos were now seeking to change their own history by destroying earth before Mondas invaded, and thus save Mondas. The Cybermen attempted to use a captured time vessel to divert Haley’s Comet to the earth, which would exterminate all life on it.

Lytton agreed to help the Cyron’s stop the Cyber plan in exchange for his freedom from earth.

The Sixth Doctor would soon be drawn into the conflict (with his TARDIS being unknowingly diverted there by the Time Lords, who had foreseen a truly terrible future if the original Cyber Empire was not destroyed.)

The Doctor along with Lytton however would be captured by the Cybermen who forced the Doctor to take them back to Telos.

Whilst there however Lytton escaped and attempted to steal the Cybermen’s time vessel. Sadly he was captured, and though the Cybermen tortured him by brutally crushing his hands. Lytton did not betray the Cryons, and so the Cyber Controller ordered he be converted to tell the where the Cryons were.

The Doctor meanwhile, with the help of the former Cryon leader Flask, was able to place his sonic lance in several of the Cybermen’s high explosives. Enough to destroy their entire base.

Before it blew however, the Doctor attempted to rescue Lytton from Cyber control. Lytton however had already been partially converted and begged the Doctor to kill him.

The Cyber controller used Lytton as bait to lure the Doctor in. As he prepared to shoot the Time Lord, Lytton in his final act, saved the Doctors life, by stabbing the Cyber controller in the arm and gave the Doctor enough time to grab his weapon which he used to slaughter the Cyber controller, and the Cyber leader.

Sadly however the controller with his dying breath managed to beat Lytton to death. Though the Doctors bomb destroyed Cyber control, foiling their plans and saving the earth, the Doctor felt that he may have misjudged Lytton, who in the end had ironically died a hero, saving humanity and countless other worlds from the Cybermen, and had withstood torture to protect the Cryons.

The Doctor is unable to save Lytton from the Cybermen.

Later in 1985, the Sontarans, working with the Androgums, would capture the Second Doctor (whilst he was working for the Celestial Intervention Agency.)

They intended to dissect the Doctor to find out why Time Lords are so adapted to time travel and harness that power for themselves. Fortunately however Jamie managed to escape and would help the Sixth Doctor and Peri save the earlier version of the Time Lord, with the Sontarans and the Androgums turning on each other.

Towards the end of 1985 the Sixth Doctor and the Brigadier would foil an invasion of earth by the Quesilacs, where they succeeded in destroying all but one of the monsters who later escaped backwards in time (see 30s section.)

In early 1986, Crypto 140 would would set up a major weapons factory on earth. Orthopox believed it would be the perfect place for their weapons factory as earth was an obscure, primitive planet that the Furon’s most powerful enemies had no knowledge of.

The weapons were constructed by rebel Furon’s as a punishment, as well as slaves from planets the Furons had conquered all over the universe.

Crypto would force his slaves to build him a car to replace his saucer.  Crypto however intended for the car to be a dangerous weapon that could take control of any other vehicle or machine. Crypto had his men piece it together from bits and pieces of vehicles belonging to some of the most evil men in human history such as Adolf Hitler. Crypto even dubbed the vehicle “Project Satan”.

Unfortunately the AI machine used for the car would give it sentience, and Project Satan would quickly break free from Crypto’s lab and rampage its way across the world, persevering for over 1000 years.

The device which allowed Project Satan to control other machines did not work as Crypto had intended however. It would be able to rewire other machines programming (though only sufficiently advanced machines) causing them to physically transform into homicidal vehicles similar to Project Satan. However even then the process would only be temporary. The robots Project Satan infected would also be able to infect others, spreading what was effectively a robotic curse, that would come to be known as the “Werecar” curse throughout the earth for the next thousand or so years.

The first robot Project Satan infected was ironically one of Crypto’s. A service robot, that had helped to build the car itself. After it was damaged, Crypto simply tossed it aside, but the robot survived and would later reconstruct its body into a more human form.

The robot would also persevere for over 1000 years, where it would every so often change its identity and persona to the public. It became all of the great acting robots throughout history, with its final identity being that of Calculon in the 31st century.

A bigger problem would soon arise when several of the Treens under the Mekon’s command would loot the factory, killing all but one of the Furon and alien slaves, a woman named Mersa.

Mersa, who had been the head of a resistance movement on her own world against the Furons, would be forced to work with Crypto reluctantly to stop the Treens.

Together the two of them would shut own the Treens base of operations around the world, before finally confronting them on Venus. The two were able to prevent the Mekon from firing Crypto’s most dangerous and unstable weapon at the heart of the Furon empire.

The weapon would have destroyed the entire galaxy of the Furon’s home world (with the Mekon then hoping that he could emerge and take over what was left of the empire in the chaos afterwards.)

Despite her hatred for the Furons, Mersa helped Crypto as the Mekon’s plans would have destroyed her home planet, as well as trillions of other innocents, still trapped under the Furon’s rule.

After the Mekon was defeated and the weapon destroyed, Crypto would allow Mersa to go free for saving his life and people. He acknowledged that she would never stop trying to free her people and that the next time they met, they may be forced to kill one another, but for now, he gave her a chance to go free.

The Mekons plans had destroyed the Furon’s most advanced weaponry, and Orthopox wanted to wipe Venus off the face of the universe, and prepared an invasion fleet. The Mekon knew that his people would never be able to stand against the Furons, but he had a back up plan. The Mekon, having been observing Crypto for many decades, knew the Furons special interest in earth and threatened to reveal it to their greatest enemies unless he called off the conflict. Orthopox was forced to call off the attack, knowing that he couldn’t possibly hope to protect the earth from so many enemies at once.

Still he assured the Mekon that as soon as they found a way round this, he would destroy Venus completely and utterly.

A few months later that same year, Ace would be whisked off of her planet to Ice World in the far future where she would meet the Seventh Doctor and eventually become his companion. In truth it was Fenric that had taken her to Ice World, as part of his plan to lure his old enemy into a trap (see 40s section.)

Later in 1986, a group of Silurian criminals were awoken in Japan. These Silurians were the most notorious criminals of their race. Many in the government had advocated just leaving them to the mercy of the oncoming asteroid (in reality a freighter piloted by the Cybermen.)

However they were imprisoned together, with only the Silurian who imprisoned the criminals, seemingly being capable of freeing them. Unfortunately however the damage done by the human mining operation was so great that the Silurians chambers were completely destroyed. Most of them were killed, but a few survived and soon made plans to claim the earth as their own.

The Silurians wanted to exterminate humanity, regarding them as nothing but vermin, and then re-awaken and enslave the other Silurians and the Sea Devils still hibernating under the earth.

The Silurian criminals had seen what had happened to Godzilla and the other mutants they had created, who had been further mutated and made more powerful by atomic weapons. They wanted to find one of their old mutant Dinosaurs buried under the earth and turn it into a weapon.

After infiltrating UNIT, the Silurians would find out the location of the Island of Pharoh.

Pharoh had broken off from Skull Island many centuries ago, taking a few specimens of its unique fauna with it, including a few meat eating Dinosaurs, and Megaprimatus Kong’s. Some of the humans from Skull Island also went with them and would similarly come to worship the great beasts they lived with, just like the original Skull Islanders.

UNIT would found out about the Island’s discovery in the late 70s after which they quickly quarantined the island.

Unfortunately the Silurian criminals were able to make their way there and take control of the giant beasts. They would mutate the Dinosaurs using the Silurian technology and then further mutate them to rival Godzilla in size using radiation.

Not all of the Dinosaurs on the Island of Pharoh survived the process, and only one of the few Megaprimatus Kong’s on the island survived too.

The Silurians created close to 100 giant monsters, ready to wage war on humanity, but the Sixth Doctor, aided by UNIT troops would succeed in shutting down the Silurians plans. Unfortunately however when the Doctor destroyed the machine the Silurians used to control the monsters, the backlash from the machines destroyed most of the monsters brains. All except two, a mutated specimen of Giganotosaurus (that would be dubbed Gorosaurus) and the last surviving Kong, as they were the strongest of the two monsters.

Gorosaurus and the mutated Megaprimatus Kong, the only two survivors of the Silurians experiments. This Megaprimatus would come to be referred to as King Kong by the press, despite not having anything to do with the original creature discovered by Denham in the 30s. The Silurian’s experiments also caused its fur to turn bright red unlike the other members of its kind.

The Silurian criminals were all killed when the Doctor destroyed their base, whilst both Kong and Gorosaurus would continue to live on the island in peace for many years afterwards. The two would occasionally fight with one another, for sport more than anything else.

At the end of 1986 earth would be invaded by the Cybermen from Mondas. This invasion would go on to become one of the most important events in the history of mankind. Unlike the previous invasions of the 20th century this would not be covered up, and nothing would ever be the same again.

The second Cyber invasion begins.

The Cybermen hoped to drain the power from the earth’s core in the hopes of saving their own dying world, Mondas. They also planned to convert as many human beings as possible into a new army of Cybermen to conquer other worlds.

The Cybermen first targeted all of the main military bases on the earth, before moving into the big cities. Thousands of people were killed whilst many more herded into their ships for Cyber conversion.

The monsters easily crushed earth’s military no problem, and they most surely would have won their invasion had it not been for the fact that Mondas absorbed too much energy from the earth and began to break up.

The Cybermen tried to avert this by using one of earth’s own weapons (that they had easily captured) to melt the earth’s core. The First Doctor and his companions, Ben and Polly would hold the Cybermen off long enough until Mondas absorbed so much energy it melted into nothing but cosmic dust.

Almost all of the Cybermen died as soon as their home world melted, and their ships crashed all over the world too. A few Cybermen did manage to survive, but they were so weak and so few they were forced to flee back into space.

The First Doctor who was already near the end of his life was so worn out by the ordeal that he would regenerate into his next incarnation.

After foiling the Cyber invasion, the Doctor regenerates for the first time in front of an amazed Ben and Polly. It would take them sometime to believe that the Second Doctor was the same person as the first.

There would obviously be no attempt to cover up the 86 invasion. Over the course of the next few years, details about previous visitations that UNIT and Majestic had covered up over the last few decades such as the previous 70s Cyber invasion would be realised to the public.

UNIT would still be utilized however as a defence force against further alien invasions.

Despite the fact that humanity were now aware of aliens UNIT would still attempt to cover up future incursions to prevent there from being a widespread panic.

In 1987 earth the second golden age of monsters would begin following Mothra’s attack on Japan. Two minature beings called the Cosmos had arrived on the earth to try and awaken Mothra. The Cosmos were fairy like creatures created by God many millions of years ago. Their job was to travel the universe and awaken and heal God’s warriors, which they could do with their magical singing voices.

The Cosmos were on the brink of reviving the Mothra that had crashed to earth millions of years ago on Infant island (and whose egg had been worshipped by the local natives as a relic from the gods) when they were captured by a man named Clark Nelson who used them as an attraction.

Mothra soon awoke to rescue the fairies and went on a rampage through Tokyo. She cocooned herself in the city centre before emerging in her final form. Mothra would rescue the two fairies before returning to infant island, where she would remain for the next few years. UNIT would monitor the island in secret, but they soon came to the conclusion that unlike other monsters such as Godzilla and the Rhedosaurus, Mothra was not dangerous unless provoked.

In 1988 Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart after 5 years decided to step down from his position. During his retirement party, the Brig would be visited by the Second Doctor (who at this point was working with the Celestial Intervention Agency. This was early in his involvement with them, before he would later reunite with Jamie and Victoria.)

The Doctor even with the Agency’s control over his TARDIS was able to steer it to the correct point in time to visit the Brigadier.

The Doctor and the Brigadier enjoyed a nice afternoon together where they reminisced about old adventures against the Cybermen, the Yeti and Omega. (The Celestial Intervention Agency allowed the Doctor to keep his memories of his future incarnations, though they would later vanish when he was exiled.)

Just as the Doctor prepared to leave however, suddenly a strange anomaly from the sky abducted both the Doctor and the Brig, taking them to a far away planet.

The two would face hordes of Cybermen before the Doctor was able to deduce where they had been taken too. The Death Zone on his own planet of Gallifrey. The Second Doctor and the Brig were able to make their way to the tower of Rassilon (which was guarded by a Yeti.)

In the Tower they met the First Doctor and Susan, the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith, and the Fifth Doctor, and Teegan and Turlough.

Except for the Fifth Doctor and his companions, they had all been brought here by the same mysterious force, and they had all faced various dangers and monsters on their way to the tower too, including a Dalek that pursued the First Doctor and Susan, Cybermen who had attacked the Fifth Doctor and his companions, as well as Sarah Jane and the Third Doctor (though they were saved by a Raston Warrior Robot, which slaughtered a squadron of armed Cybermen with minimal effort.)

The Doctors and their companions also encountered the Tremas incarnation of the Master in the Death Zone too. Ironically he had been sent by the Time Lords to help the Doctor. The Time Lords had promised him a new cycle of regenerations if he saved the Doctor.

Unfortunately for the Master none of the Doctors believed him. The Third and the Fifth Doctors would both abandon the Master, with the Fifth Doctor leaving him in the care of the Cybermen! The Master however managed to convince the Cybermen to spare his life. He told them that together they could steal the power of the Time Lords by taking over the tower.

The Cybermen of course had every intention of killing the Master once the tower was theirs, but the Master managed to destroy them, by luring the monsters over a trap in the tower.

Realizing that the Doctors would never believe him, the Master decided to cut his losses, kill his old archenemy and claim the power of Rassilon’s immortality for himself.

However just as the Master prepared to shoot the first three Doctors and their companions, the Brigadier was able to sucker punch the villain and knock him out.

Soon after the real mastermind behind the insidious scheme was revealed. Borusa, the President of the Time Lords, and the Doctors former mentor at school.

Borusa who was nearing the end of his regeneration cycle was desperate to try and gain the power of immortality, allowing him to effectively rule Gallifrey forever. However in order to gain the power of immortality you have to play the game of Rassilon, where you have to choose champions to survive the Death Zone and make it to the tower.

Borusa chose the then 5 incarnations of the Doctor as his champions, and filled the Death Zone full of monsters and enemies the Doctor had faced before such as the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Master. (His attempts to pull the Fourth Doctor and his then companion, Romana failed and he ended up trapping them both in the time vortex.)

Unfortunately for Borusa, the game of Rassilon had been set up by the former president to catch out and imprison rogue Time Lords.

Borua was condemned to eternal life as a statue alongside other Time Lords who had similarly sought the secret of immortality in the past.

With Borusa defeated, all of the Doctors were returned to their correct time (as were their companions and the Master) with all but the Fifth Doctors memories being wiped of the event to preserve the timeline. The Fourth Doctor and Romana would also be freed from the vortex and returned home too. The Fifth Doctor would be offered the position of High President of Gallifrey but he turned it down to continue his travels.

Back on earth in the summer of 1988, a Japanese mining expedition would accidentally release the male Godzilla from the iceberg it had been trapped in for 30 years.

Upon being freed the male Godzilla would instantly head towards Japan and go on a massive rampage throughout Tokyo, killing hundreds.

Just as before the military’s weapons would not even succeed in slowing Godzilla down, and so the Japanese would turn to another way to stop the mutant Tyrannosaur.

They would attempt to bring King Kong from the Island of Pharoh to fight Godzilla. Kong’s existence had become public knowledge despite UNIT’s best attempts.

The Japanese air force were able to drug Kong and bring him straight to Godzilla. During their first fight, Godzilla easily defeated Kong, who fled to Tokyo where he went on a rampage, and much like his predecessor abducted a young woman, before the military were able to subdue him again.

They brought Kong to Godzilla a second time, and this time the great Ape was able to absorb electricity from a lightening strike which enabled him to fight Godzilla on a more even footing. The two monsters great battle would take them deep into the ocean where an earthquake, caused by the monsters themselves, soon swallowed up Godzilla and trapped him, whilst Kong was able to swim home to safety.

The greatest monsters the earth has ever seen battle one another.

In November 1988 a fleet of Cybermen from the future would arrive on earth to try and steal the Nemesis statue, a powerful Timelord artefact that the Doctor stole when he first left Gallifrey.

These Cybermen wished to gain control of the Nemesis in order to become as powerful as the Time Lords and transform earth into the New Mondas. The Seventh Doctor however would destroy the Cybermen by programming the Nemesis to eliminate their fleet.

In 1989 Gamera would return to earth. The giant turtle had left in the late 70s. Feeling that he had done everything he could for humanity, Gamera wanted to explore the universe. He would go on be a hero on many worlds throughout the galaxy, battling various monsters, including several Gyaos.

He returned to earth at the end of the 80s however when pursuing the last of a vicious race of creatures known as the Zigra. The Zigra had destroyed their own world in a series of wars, and now wished to make a new planet the base for their new empire.

After foiling a previous attempt to conquer another world, Gamera followed the Zigra to earth, where he would finally manage to destroy them once and for all, after which he would return to space once again.

Later in 1989 Godzilla would escape the pit he fell into at the end of his battle with Kong and continue to ravage Tokyo.

This time however the king of the monsters would be opposed by Mothra. Mothra however proved to be no match for Godzilla who tore the winged beast apart.

Fortunately however Mothra’s two children that she had given birth too since her last attack on Japan, would manage to defeat Godzilla. Catching him off guard, they were able to web Godzilla up and knock him into the ocean.

As the 80s drew to a close the Doctor would have one more encounter with his sworn foe the Master in the town of Perivale. The Master had been trapped on a mysterious planet, that had the power to alter those who lived on it, bringing their darker, more violent urges to the fore, until it eventually transformed them into animals. Many eons ago members from an advanced race landed on the planet and attempted to harness its power for their own means. The power soon consumed them however and turned them into hideous, feral, Cheetah people. The Cheetah people would, using what was left of their technology breed creatures that could travel across worlds and bring prey to them.

The journey could only go one way, as once the planet took hold of you it kept you there. Even if a Cheetah person did manage to escape, then the planet would pull them back eventually.

The Master would take control of the Cheetah people, and sent their pets into Perivale in the 80s to fetch people for them to hunt and kill.

The Master knew Perivale was the home of the Doctors companion Ace and hoped he could draw him in eventually. The Master felt that with the Doctors help he could perhaps escape (with the Doctor only helping him if he was also stranded.) If there was truly no escape, then the Master would at least get his revenge on the Doctor.

Sure enough the Seventh Doctor and Ace would be drawn to Perivale, and it wasn’t long before one of the Masters minions, a Cheetah woman named Kara was able capture Ace.

Ace is captured as part of the Masters trap.

The Doctor would follow Ace to the Cheetah planet where he would encounter his archenemy. The Master had already begun to degenerate into a savage killer, taking an outright pleasure in watching the Cheetah people tear their victims to pieces.

The Doctor was able to work out that those who were beginning to turn into Cheetah people could create portals to other planets too, but as they had not completed the transformation then there is as chance they might be able to resist the pull of the planet. The Master had never tried this method as none of the people he brought to the planet survived long enough, whilst the Master himself did not want, until recently to give in to the Cheetah virus, for even a second.

Ace, who had developed something of a romantic fixation with Kara had already begun to transform into a Cheetah person, and the Doctor was able to use her to get himself, along with others the Master had kidnapped back home to Perivale. The Master meanwhile escaped using one of Ace’s friends, Midge, who had begun to turn into an animal.

Back on earth, the Master instantly began to plot his revenge against the Doctor. He murdered several people and took over more with the Cheetah virus to lure the Doctor out. Ace was unable to fight or else the virus would overtake her and so the Doctor was forced to confront the Master and his minions.

The Doctor managed to kill Midge when the two crashed their motor bike’s together. Kara also arrived briefly in our world and tried to save Ace, and though she chased away those under the Master’s control, the Master ultimately stabbed Kara to death.

The Doctor after recovering from his fight with Midge, would soon confront the Master. By this stage the Master had come to relish in the dark power of the Cheetah planet, believing he could control it now. He teleported the Doctor back to the Cheetah world and attempted to beat him to death with a piece of animal bone!

The Doctor however managed to overpower the Master, and overwhelmed with hatred for the villain, tried to smash his head in with a rock!

At the last moment the Doctor however realized that the Cheetah virus would consume him too if he carried out an act of violence. Furthermore, due to the fact that they were both time lords, their transformation could have a more devastating effect on the planet, than any of its other inhabitants (as the planet was influenced by them as well.)

The Doctor tried to plead with the Master, stating that they would both die if they didn’t put their differences aside and escaped. The Master however didn’t care he was so desperate to destroy the Doctor. The Doctor however using the last of the virus’ power teleported himself back to earth, leaving the Master trapped on the seemingly dying world.

Back home the Doctor and Ace were freed from the virus and continued on their travels. The Master meanwhile would later escape the Cheetah world, but the virus had affected his already unstable mind, pushing him even further into darkness.

The Doctor and the Master have one of their most vicious showdowns. 

1990s

Image result for godzilla showa

The 90s would come to be known as the second golden age of monsters.

In 1990 Godzilla would return from the prison Mothra had left the monster in. The two Mothra’s would have more fights with the beast, and drive him away from Japan briefly again, but Godzilla would always return.

Both Mothra’s as well as the Cosmos would go on to be seen as heroes. The Cosmos would even appear on Japanese talk shows, such was their popularity.

Godzilla would soon find a new enemy, in the child of the two Rodan’s killed at the end of the 50s. By now it had grown as large as its parents. Rodan unlike Mothra however was no friend to humanity and would attack major cities just like Godzilla. Still most of the time the two beasts would be locked in combat with each other.

Godzilla would usually get the better of Rodan in these confrontations, but Rodan still never went down without a fight, and unlike Anguirus was able to escape before Godzilla could finish him off.

Sadly one of the Mothra’s would be killed battling an evil organisation known as the Red Bambo. Started by a former member of the Japanese branch of Majestic, the Red Bambo sought global domination, and used stolen Silurian technology to genetically engineer giant monsters with which they had hoped to use as an army.

Only two of the many monsters they had created had survived however, a giant Lobster which they named Ebirah and a gigantic bird creature. Both were unpredictable and not easy to control either, but still they hoped to eventually master the Silurian technology.

The Mothra’s would discover the Red Bamboo’s base. It was located on Devil Island, not too far from Infant Island. The Mothra’s were able to destroy the Red Bambo’s stolen technology, however being small and weak in their larva, caterpillar forms, they were both wounded against Ebirah, (who they still managed to web up and bury at the bottom of the sea.) One of the two Mothra’s sadly succumbed to her injuries and died, whilst the other returned to infant island.

The Red Bambo meanwhile, though having lost the Silurian technology, would  make other plans for world domination. They allowed Mothra to think that she had destroyed their base, but would secretly begin to rebuild their forces. When Ebirah eventually resurfaced, they were no longer able to control the beast and so were forced to create a special chemical that kept the monster at bay.

A bigger threat would emerge towards the end of the year when one of the Anti God’s most evil creations would visit the earth. King Ghidorah.

King Ghidorah, sensing that the only creatures that could possibly threaten it were in Japan headed there first. One woman, descended from the early human’s infected with Insectoid DNA’s race memories would be triggered by the sight of Ghidorah to the point where she even assumed the persona of one of her ancestors.

She warned the government of Ghidorah’s impending attack on the planet, but sadly the Japanese airforce’s weapons were completely useless against the three headed Dragon.

The surviving Mothra was called in to help, but Mothra was no match for Ghidorah. Mothra was forced to turn to her old enemies, Godzilla and Rodan for help.

Neither wanted to help humanity. Both ironically felt humanity had always persecuted them (with Godzilla’s mate having been killed by humanity in the 50s, and Rodan’s parents having been killed too.)

Mothra decided to face Ghidorah alone where she was hopelessly overpowered. Godzilla and Rodan were impressed by her bravery and selflessness however and decided to help her.

Working together the three monsters were able to overpower King Ghidorah. Godzilla held the golden giant down, whilst Rodan flew Mothra to safety, allowing her to get out of range of Ghidorah’s attacks, Mothra was then able to web Ghidorah’s head, covering its three mouths.

Now helpless against Godzilla, the king of the monsters beat the golden dragon almost to death, forcing it to, for the first time in thousands of years, flee from a world.

Godzilla and Rodan, along with Mothra become unlikely saviors of humanity when they drive Ghidorah off the planet.

Godzilla and Rodan would come to an understanding with Mothra that they wouldn’t attack humanity as long as humanity didn’t bother them.

Godzilla and Rodan however still felt they had to settle their own differences and so they would fight it out on a small Island off the coast of Japan.

The two’s fight would last several weeks and would leave both monsters injured for a short while afterwards.

At the beginning of 1991 earth would be faced with yet another alien invasion. The robots from Planet X. The creatures lived on a small planet sized asteroid that they drove through space. They sought to conquer the earth for its natural resources.

Knowing they would never stand against Godzilla, the aliens made preparations. First of all they were able to capture King Ghidorah using mind control techniques. Second they approached humanity peacefully at first, lying to them that Ghidorah was attacking their world and that they needed Godzilla and Rodan to fight it off.

They promised humanity a cure for all of the diseases on earth. Though skeptical at first, the humans eventually agreed and helped the robots capture Godzilla and Rodan (who were still weak after their fight.)

Godzilla and Rodan were taken to Planet X where they won a staged battle with Ghidorah, after which the robots would take control of them using the same methods.

All three monsters were then let loose on earth. The military and UNIT attempted to repel them, but it was no use.

One of the robots however, having developed its own personality, and having fallen in love with an earth man, gave the earthlings a secret weapon which could scramble the robots systems.

The robots invasion force would be destroyed, and the three monsters freed from their control.

King Ghidorah would instantly attack humanity, but Godzilla and Rodan would fight him off a second time.

The battle ended with all three monsters tumbling into the ocean. Though Godzilla and Rodan were ultimately victorious, the battle left them both weak and Godzilla would retreat into the ocean, whilst Rodan left for the mountains.

Many people assumed that Godzilla had died when he didn’t resurface and some even held a tribute to the beast, despite his previous rampages for saving humanity from Ghidorah twice.

The aliens from Planet X meanwhile would flee the solar system instantly after their invasion was foiled.

They were scared not of retribution from humanity, but from Ghidorah for controlling him.

With their mind control technology destroyed by the earth (which had taken years to build) they had no other defecses against Ghidorah who would pursue their world throughout space for a few years until Ghidorah finally destroyed them for controlling him.

Godzilla would head for Infant Island in search of his old ally, Mothra. He was so weak however that he didn’t make it there and instead came to rest on Devil Island.

In 1992, the Red Bamboo had become more bold. Mothra had since grown into a full Moth form. She had accelerated her growth in order to combat future threats, but doing so had left in her in a comatose state.

The Red Bamboo without seemingly having to worry about Mothra, conquered Infant Island and enslaved its population, forcing them to build weapons.

One of the Infant Islander slaves however, along with three shipwrecked sailors discovered Godzilla and were able to awaken and repower him by using an Infant Islanders sword to draw lightening to the beast.

Godzilla would defeat both Ebirah and the giant bird, before destroying the Red Bamboo’s base. However one of the Red Bamboo’s scientists with his dying breath was able to set off the island’s self destruct device.

Mothra, having been awoken by her people’s summons was able to make her way to Devil Island where she rescued the prisoners before the Island blew up. Godzilla briefly confronted Mothra before he escaped the island. He was in a somewhat feral state after being awoken, and so he attacked his former friend before regaining his senses.

Godzilla kills Ebirah by ripping its claws off.

Now back at full strength Godzilla returned to the island he had placed his son on all those decades ago, after his mate’s initial rampage on Japan. After several decades of mutating within the egg, the baby Dinosaur was ready to hatch.

In the decades since Godzilla had placed his egg there for protection, a group of scientists had set up a facility on the island to try and find a way to control the weather.

A mistake from the scientists would create a radioactive storm which mutated several praying mantis’ and a giant Spider, causing them to grow to the size of Godzilla. (The radiation from Godzilla’s egg had already sept into the earth of the island, mutating the spider to a certain degree, with the humans actions merely accelerating the process.)

The mantis’ would attack Godzilla’s child as it was hatching and attempted to devour it, but Godzilla quickly saved his child and slaughtered all but one of the beasts.

The giant Spider however, who would come to be known as Kumonga would begin to attack the humans and cornered baby Godzilla and the last of the mantis’. After devouring the mantis Kumonga attempted to kill baby Godzilla, but Godzilla would again intervene and after an intense battle he was able to burn Kumonga along with his son.

The humans were able to escape in the ensuing confrontation, whilst Godzilla and his son would go into a state of hibernation to sleep through the winter the humans had plunged the island into.

Back home this incident would be reported as “Godzilla saves scientists from giant spider!” As a result of this, his actions on Devils Island, and his battles against King Ghidorah, Godzilla would soon become seen as a national hero of Japan.

Godzilla and his son overpower Kumonga.

When Godzilla awoke a few months later and the ice had thawed, he discovered that Kumonga had not died. The monster had also gone into hibernation after the two Godzilla’s attack, where it slowly healed itself. Still weak from the attack. Kumonga would not attack Godzilla again out of a combination of fear and respect.

Over the course of the next few years more monsters would gravitate towards Godzilla’s island. Many did so as the beasts were able to sense one another’s presence and so with Godzilla and his child laready there, Rodan soon followed, and eventually the more and more monsters arrived on this one island, the more they would all come to see it as a haven.

The island would be dubbed Monster Island by the media.

Among the many monsters that came to reside on the island was Anguirus, Godzilla’s old foe from the 50s. Much like with Kumonga, Anguirus knew not to attack Godzilla after their last encounter, but the two monsters would over time develop something approaching a friendship with one another, with Anguirus becoming Godzilla’s closest ally.

The version of Mothra that lived on the island was actually the child of the previous Mothra who had helped Godzilla defeat Ghidorah. That Mothra had decided to explore space, believing that the earth had enough protectors. Mothra sought to help other more vulnerable worlds, and decided to leave its child with its old allies and friends, Godzilla and Rodan for protection while it was gone.

She decided not to leave it on Infant Island, feeling that the previous Mothra’s had made its people a target. The Cosmos would also leave with the original Mothra. The adult Mothra would later meet up with Gamera in space, when she helped him slay a particularly vicious pack of Gyaos and the two would become close allies, journeying from world to world together.

For the next year or so the monsters and humanity would for the first time live a peaceful existence with one another.

In 1993, mankind would come under threat from a powerful sorceress named Morgaine who came from another universe where magic was the dominant force. Morgaine had also managed to chain one of the Anti God’s Demons, the Destroyer.

Morgaine however, being fully aware of what the Destroyer could do, only intended to unleash him if all of her other plans failed. Though the Seventh Doctor and UNIT (aided by the former Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart who had come out of retirement again, for this mission) were able to foil Morgaine’s schemes for conquest, she was still able to release the Destroyer.

The Doctor knew the beasts great weakness. A weapon made of Silver could destroy it in its weakened form. Lethbridge Stewart however would steal the silver bullets from the Doctor, feeling that it was better if he took the risk (as he felt he was more expendable than the Doctor.) The former Brigadier bravely faced down the Demon and destroyed him, saving his planet once more.

The Doctor is overjoyed to find his best friend survived.

In 1994 Gamera and Mothra would return to earth under the control of the Master! The Master had gained advanced mind control technology on his travels, and used it to take control of the two monsters after luring them into a trap.

The Master sent them to earth where they attacked monster island. Together the two monsters succeeded in capturing Rodan, Gorosaurus, Kumonga and Anguirus, and Mothra Jr. Gamera kept Godzilla busy, whilst Mothra was able to subdue the other monsters thanks to a little help from the Master who provided her with more advanced weaopnry. Gamera however was not able to overpower Godzilla with the two monsters fighting to a stand still, before Gamera had to flee.

The monsters Mothra had captured would then be placed under the Masters control and were sent to attack cities all over the world, with the Master broadcasting a message that he would only relent when humanity agreed to his rule. Godzilla would soon seek out his old enemy King Kong and together the two of them would defeat the Masters various monsters around the world, whilst the 7th Doctor, aided by UNIT was able to shut down the Masters control of the monsters.

Unfortunately however the Master had an ace in the hole. He was able during the monsters rampages, to create a vastly powerful army of giant monsters, salvaged from the DNA of Gamera and the other beasts he had captured. He soon set these creatures loose on the world, with all of the monsters battling against them. The creatures however were too powerful, even for the likes of Kong and Godzilla.

The Doctor knew that the Master would have to have a fail safe against the Monsters in case they turned on him, and sure enough, the Master had created a weapon that could unravel the monsters DNA. With Godzilla, Kong, Gamera and the adult Mothra’s help the Doctor and UNIT were able to break into the Masters head quarters and use the weapon to destroy his army.

Unfortunately the Masters rampage not only killed thousands, but also caused the death of the adult Mothra. Many governments around the world would call for Monster Island to be destroyed afterwards, though ultimately it was decided that it was best not to provoke the beasts. Still Monster Island would heavily monitored from here on out, and attempts would be made to try and prevent the monsters from leaving again.

Gamera meanwhile would decide to remain on earth. Wanting to make amends for the evils he had carried out under the Masters orders, Gamera would not live on Monster Island however, and would instead travel the world, waiting for the chance to redeem himself.

The following year in 1995, earth would again be invaded by a hostile race of insect like creatures who would be aided by two giant monsters, Gigan and Godzilla’s archenemy, King Ghidorah.

These aliens had created Gigan, a cybernetic creature on their home world many eons ago to protect it from any potential invasions. Sadly however their world would ultimately be destroyed by their own carelessness. They polluted its atmosphere to such an extent that they were struggling to survive, and so the insect creatures now sought to make earth their own home.

Having monitored the earth, they knew that its monsters together could easily repel Gigan and so they were able to capture King Ghidorah using mind control techniques.

They also had prepared a special weapon for Godzilla, believing that if they could just dispose of the king of the monsters, then the others would be easily beaten by Ghidorah and Gigan.

Sure enough when King Ghidorah and Gigan began their assault on Japan, Godzilla and Anguirus would instantly respond and begin to battle the monsters.

Godzilla however would be felled by the aliens weapon, but before it could finish him off, a group of humans were able to destroy the aliens base on earth. After regaining his full strength, Godzilla along with Anguirus would thrash King Ghidorah and Gigan, sending them both fleeing back to the stars.

Unlike the doomed aliens of Planet X, the cockroaches were able to escape retribution from Ghidorah at first by using hypnotic suggestion to make themselves invisible to the beast.

The invasion of earth from Ghidorah would alert the Atlanteans, who made contact with the Insects. The Atlanteans cut a deal with the aliens that both would destroy the surface world and then share the earth, building a better world together.

The Atlanteans would launch their own monster Manda as part of their first attack. Manda however would be captured quickly by the military. The Japanese branch of UNIT, utilizing technology salvaged from aliens, was able to freeze Manda after which they then hoped to deposit the monster on Monster island. Unfortunately however the Atlanteans, mindful of the presence of Godzilla and Anguirus in foiling the aliens previous invasion, attacked Monster Island.

They set off a series of explosions under the island which ripped it apart. Anguirus and Mothra would be swallowed up in an earthquake caused by the explosion, whilst Rodan would be forced to flee. Godzilla meanwhile was able to survive the explosions, as would his son, but sadly their home was completely destroyed.

The Atlanteans would then send Megalon to destroy Japan, who the Atlanteans judged to be the biggest threat after their defeat of Manda. During the attack however, a former member of the Japanese branch of UNIT, would use his own cyborg creation, Jet Jaguar to battle Megalon.

Jet Jaguar was constructed from bits and pieces of alien technology. Even his own creator was unaware of how advanced Jet Jaguar actually was. The robot had developed some form of sentience and was able to alter its body so that it could grow to a huge size to combat Megalon.

The Insect aliens however would soon send their monster, Gigan to aid their Atlantean allies. Knowing that he would be no match for both beasts, Jet Jaguar went to Godzilla for help.

Together Jet Jaguar and the King of the Monsters would easily defeat Megalon and Gigan, sending the latter fleeing back to the stars once again.

Towards the end of 1995, the Atlanteans would play their final card. They released their mutated version of Gyaos onto Japan. Gamera would track the monster down and though it was far more powerful than the regular Gyaos he had faced on other worlds, he was still able to completely destroy the monster after an intense battle.

Gamera kills Gyaos.

Unfortunately however, the Gyaos’ mutation allowed it to produce several thousand eggs. Normally a Gyaos, much like Mothra could only produce one offspring. The Gyaos had laid all of its eggs before its final fight with Gamera. It laid them all over the earth.

The monsters would hatch within a month or so of their parent’s death and their mutation would also allow them to grow to full size within a few days. The monsters would go to ravage cities all over the earth. All of the monsters from Monster Island as well as Kong and of course Gamera would fight and slaughter the Gyaos all over the world, but there were simply too many of them. No matter how many Gyaos, Godzilla, Kong and Gamera were able to kill, more would soon emerge. It was one of the darkest periods of the 20th century, with whole cities being destroyed by swarms of the mutants.

Even the Atlanteans were horrified with the destruction the Gyaos were creating. They feared that the monsters would destroy all life on the planet, not just humanity and that there would be no way of controlling them either.

The Atlanteans would work with UNIT and the Seventh Doctor (UNIT at this point was commanded by Brigadier Bambera, but just as with the Destroyer, Sir Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart would come out of retirement to help deal with the crisis.)

Using samples of the Gyaos’ DNA, the Doctor would successfully create a plague that attacked the mutant Gyaos. Most of the beasts were killed, but the few remaining Gyaos would merge together into a super monsters. These Gyaos were able to merge together into a single beast because of their mutations which allowed them to alter their DNA to a greater extent.

The super Gyaos  proved to be immune to the Doctors plague and would go on to lay more eggs that would hatch similar creatures. UNIT and the Doctor, working with the three mightiest of earth’s monsters, Godzilla, Gamera and Kong were able to attack the Super Gyaos’ nest and destroy its eggs before they could hatch. All three monsters would battle the Gyaos together, but Gamera would be the one to finally destroy the Super Gyaos. Sadly it would be at the cost his own life, with the two monsters dealing a mortal blow to one another.

Whilst Gamera was dead, little did anyone know that one specimen of his race had survived. Just before the Gyaos invasion, Gamera had searched through the only ruins of Atlantis on the surface (which had recently been excavated for the first time.) He had visited them simply out of curiosity, but discovered an incubation chamber which contained an egg for another Gamera. The egg however having been kept in a state of suspended animation was still dormant. Gamera would place the egg somewhere safe, not wanting it to fall into human hands. It would be discovered several decades after his death.

Following the destruction of the last Gyaos, Gamera would be celebrated as a hero around the world, as would both Kong and Godzilla. There would be films made about their exploits, as well as toys, video games, comic books, to celebrate the three heroic monsters.

Despite this however there was still great controversy surrounding the beasts. Naturally those who had lost loved ones during the previous rampages of Godzilla, Gamera and Kong boycotted the movies made about the three monsters, and in many cases demanded they be banned as they were offensive to the victims.

Still the three monsters would continue to be celebrated heroes, and Kong and Godzilla would go on defend the earth from many more threats in the decades to come.

The Atlanteans meanwhile would reach a peace treaty with humanity. Obviously they were forced to make concessions, and all of their leaders and scientists who had unleashed the Gyaos and Megalon were imprisoned.

In 1996, Crypto 141 would create several theme parks under a human identity which made him a wealthy man and gave him access to various humans to use in his experiments. These theme parks however were staffed by various robotic replica’s of various monsters and characters from fiction, who in some cases, after developing sentience would break free and begin to plan to take over the world. Crypto would with Orthopox’s help, defeat all of his robots, but one of Crypto’s theme parks survived. A horror theme park with life sized robot replica’s of characters like Dracula and the Frankenstein’s Monster. These robots unlike the others had no desire to conquer the earth, and so they would happily remain in their haunted mansion for a few years, which Crypto simply said was closed for repairs.

The Doctor in his first incarnation would later arrive at the house whilst being pursued by the Daleks (who at that point in their history were not as advanced as the Furons, though they would later overtake them.)

Later in 1996 an alien family known as the Zone family arrived on the earth. Their own planet had been destroyed by a race of hideous Demons known as the Garogans.

The Zone family had always loved the earth, and used to visit there on holiday all the time. Just before the destruction of their world, the eldest son in the family, who would go by the name of Hikaru Sakimori on earth had undergone many experiments to try and increase his size and strength so that he could battle the hordes of giant monsters the Garogans would unleash on the Zone family’s world.

The Garogans have no real power of their own. They were few in number, and they had no home planet, only a small space station.

Sadly however whilst the experiments would work, and Hikaru would be able to change his size, it came too late, with virtually all of his people having been killed at that point.

The family retreated to earth, hoping they would be safe, but the Garogans followed them there. Hoping to slaughter the last of their enemies, the Garogans also hoped to harvest earth’s monsters for their own ends.

Hikaru, working with Godzilla would repel the various monsters sent by the Garogans over the next year. Godzilla became the closest ally of the Zone family, with Hikaru even building a cave for the monster and his son to live in, after the destruction of Monster Island. Among the monsters the Garogans would send to attack the earth included Godzill’as old enemies, Gigan and King Ghidorah.

Ghidorah was an old ally of the Garogans, who would help the dragon find the Insect aliens home planet. Ghidorah would destroy their home world just as he had done Planet X. Gigan of course attempted to protect his people, and fought with his former ally, but he was no match for Ghidorah. After the insect aliens were destroyed, Gigan would be captured by the Gargorans and brainwashed into being their servant.

Ultimately Gigan would be killed despite the improvements built into his body by Hikaru.

Godzilla and Zone Fighter battle hordes of monsters to protect humanity.

At the end of 1996 Hikaru would finally destroy the Garogans headquarters and eliminate their threat. The Zone family would remain on earth for a few years afterwards before deciding to explore the greater universe. As much as they loved the earth, it could never truly replace their home, and so they would spend the rest of their lives planet hopping.

A few of the Garogans would survive and in 1997 they would return to earth with a new monster Garugan. Garugan was a mechanical monster that the Garogans had been working on for years. Intending it to be their ultimate weapon, they had managed to salvage it before their base was destroyed and later finished it on an uninhabited planet.

When the monster arrived on earth, it would come into conflict with Anguirus and Mothra. Both had survived the destruction of monsterland, and even helped battle the Gyaos. The two had remained together afterwards however, with Anguirus being very protective of Mothra who was still vulnerable in her larva form.

The two monsters proved to be now match for Garugan, but Angurius would later summon Godzilla from his cave and together Godzilla, Anguirus and Mothra were able to destroy Garugan and the last of the Garogans for good.

Later in 1997, Godzilla would face what would be his greatest enemy after Ghidorah himself. Another mechanical creature, Mechagodzilla!

Mechagodzilla was the creation of a race of sentient ape creatures, and humanity from the earth’s future. May centuries from now, humanity would almost wipe itself out in a atomic war, with only a few primitives and underground mutants left behind. Though the mutants and the apes (who evolved to take mankind’s place as the dominant life form on the surface of the planet) hated each other at first, and even attempted to exterminate one another. A further nuclear strike on the planet would ultimately bring the final survivors together in desperation. Whilst some attempted to try and terrorform the planet, others believed that the earth was dead, and so using time travel technology, stolen from the ruins of UNIT HQ in the future, they travelled backwards in time to the 20th Century, where they hoped to exterminate all of humanity and thus save the planet from destruction in the future, after which they would then build their perfect civilization to live in using the alien technology.

The Apes and the Mutant humans meanwhile would not be wiped from existence, despite killing their ancestors, thanks to the advanced technology they stole from the ruins of UNIT HQ, (which included tech left over from Operation Golden Age in the 70s, which would similarly have allowed the scientists to wipe out all of humanity and their influence from the history of earth, save for their chosen few.)

The Mutants and the Apes from the future unite to take over the earth in its past. Whilst in the past both would use human disguises to blend in.

The time travellers were believed to have landed at some point in the 50s and would spend the next few decades constructing their super weapon, a giant mechanical version of the greatest of all earth’s monsters. Godzilla.

In 1997 their mechanical monster was finally ready, but knowing what a danger the earth monsters could be, they initially disguised their robot as Godzilla in the hopes of convincing the rest of earth’s monsters to turn on Godzilla. Godzilla being the strongest would kill several of them, before they brought him down, after which, with Godzilla dead, and the monster forces depleted Mechagodzilla could pick them off more easily.

The aliens deception did not fool Anguirus, Godzilla’s best friend who attacked the impostor, managing to tear a piece of its fake skin off in the process and exposing it as a fake. Sadly Anguirus was no match for Mechagodzilla who beat him senseless and broke his jaws!

Anguirus would survive however and later managed to alert the real Godzilla about the impostor.

Sadly Godzilla would not fare much better as Mechagodzilla would swiftly defeat the king of the monsters in their first battle, though not before Godzilla exposed the truth at last by blasting off his double’s fake skin.

Godzilla faces his evil double for the first time.

The Apes and the Mutants would quickly face a new enemy in the form of King Cesar. Once one of God’s greatest soldiers, King Cesar had loose powers of precognition, and foresaw that he would be needed at certain points in earth’s future, to help in many great battles. Since he would not live that long, Cesar was forced to place himself into a deep kind of stasis. He could be awoken by a statue and a certain ritual which were placed into the hands of a special cult who worshipped Cesar as their god.

The Apes and the Mutants attempted to destroy the statue to prevent Cesar from awakening, but his human followers were able to awaken the ancient monster. Unfortunately King Cesar was no match for the robot either, but Godzilla, having recovered from their last battle intervened and with King Cesar’s help Godzilla was able to defeat Mechagodzilla by ripping his head from his shoulders.

With King Cesar’s help, Godzilla defeated his mechanical archenemy.

Most of the Apes and the Mutants invasion force were killed by the humans after Mechagodzilla’s destruction, but a few survived, and would later salvage Mechagodzilla’s remains.

Towards the end of 1997, earth would mount its second deep space mission. A vessel called the Jupiter 2 was to be sent to a planet capable of supporting life in the Alpha Centauri system. Its crew was to be a family who would help prepare for future colonists. Of several thousand volunteers, the Robinson family were picked, whilst distinguished astronaut and pilot, Major Don West was chosen as the ships emergency pilot. The final member of the crew was a robot, designed to help the space family monitor and control the environment.

The robot that accompanied the Robinson. At that point it was the most sophisticated piece of technology ever built by man. It would later serve as an inspiration to other robots in the far future as a Cybernetic hero.

The journey to Alpha Centauri would take 5 years, with its crew being placed into a state of suspended animation in the meantime.  In N-Space, the cold war did not end in the early 90s and so when the Americans won the space race with the construction of the Jupiter 2, it was believed for years that the USSR were responsible for its sabotage. It would later discovered to be a terrorist organisation known as Aeolius 14 Umbra, desperate to pit both sides against one another.

Doctor Zachary Smith, a corrupt, greedy, self serving man who worked for the government would serve as Aeolius 14 Umbra’s double agent to sabotage the mission from within.

Just before it was about to take off, Doctor Smith would sneak on board the Jupiter 2 and reprogram the Robot to destroy the ship from within, exactly 1 hour after take off. Just as the ship was ready for take off however, Doctor Smith noticed that the Robot’s power had been shut down for the journey and so he snuck back on board and reactivated it. However he was unable to get off just as the ship was taking off and was trapped on board the Jupiter 2 with the Robinsons.

Doctor Smith’s extra weight caused the ship to slowly drift away of course into an Asteroid belt where it was nearly destroyed. Doctor Smith would be forced to revive Major West to pilot the ship to safety. Major West would subsequently revive the rest of the Robinson family (against the wishes of Doctor Smith.)

Doctor Smith shut down the Robot before it could carry out his commands, but unfortunately, the youngest child of the Robinson family, Will Robinson reactivated the Robot which went on a rampage throughout the ship, nearly killing the Robinsons and destroying their guidance system, which sent their vessel far beyond the solar system, and deep into the galaxy.

The Jupiter 2 would never return to earth during its own time. It would drift through the galaxy for the next 30 plus years, desperately trying to make its way home, whilst being beset by various problems, including alien monsters, asteroid belts and Doctor Smith himself.

As time went on Doctor Smith, despite having originally attempted to kill the Robinsons, softened up, and even became friends with the two youngest children, Will and Penny Robinson. Sadly however he still ended up causing problems for the family, regardless of whether he was attempting to help them or plotting against them, due to his utter incompetence. As John Robinson himself once said “how does one survive his (Smith’s) good intentions”.

Nevertheless despite this the Robinsons would later discover that ironically they owed Smith a huge debt of gratitude. A few years into their mission, Smith would find a way to travel in time to 1997 (after stealing a time vessel from an alien ship.) Smith was able to stop his earlier self from going on board the Jupiter 2, but unfortunately in the new timeline an uncharted asteroid would destroy the Jupiter 2 a few months into its journey, killing all of the Robinsons and Major West. The Robot would travel back to try and convince Dr Smith to go on board the Jupiter 2. Though reluctant at first to give up his comfortable life home, Doctor Smith found that he could not leave his friends to die, and ironically stowed away on board the ship to save the Robinson family this time.

During its time in deep space the Jupiter 2 would come into conflict with the Galactic Federation many times. The Galactic Federation had existed for over 5000 years and included millions of worlds in our galaxy and beyond. It was one of the few areas of the universe where magic was not outlawed. Most other civilized worlds saw magic as a force for evil, and shunned worlds where magic was the dominant force. (Leading to the establishment of a federation of magical worlds.)

The Galactic Federation however saw magic and science co-exist peacefully, with magic simply being seen as a natural force that could be used like any other.

However there would be one race of magical creatures who would become outlaws within the Federaton, the Saticons.

The Saticons had been corrupted by dark magic which had turned them into hideous monsters who had no aims other than to cause disruption and discord on all civilizations throughout the known universe. The Robinsons would encounter the Saticons a few times, including when they attempted to launch an attack on earth.

The monsters captured the Robinson family’s Robot and through him created a curse on all pieces of electronic equipment made by man to break down or turn against their masters. The curse worked on the Robinson family themselves, but fortunately before it could spread to the earth (where it would surely have wiped out humanity.) The Robot was able to overcome the curse and destroy the Saticons spell, with the feedback destroying this pack of Saticons themselves.

The Saticons, sworn enemies of the Galactic Federation and the Jupiter 2.

Sadly the Jupiter 2’s journey’s would come to an end after 30 years of being lost in deep space, when it was attacked by the transdimensional space whale that devoured the crew. The crew didn’t die however. The whale didn’t feed on those it devoured. Instead it fed on their obsessive natures after preserving them in its stomach in a state of suspended animation.

In the crew of the Jupiter 2’s case, it was their obsession with getting home. The crew themselves would not be harmed. whilst the whale fed on their obsession. The Robinsons would remain trapped in the whale’s stomach, completely unaware for close to 1000 years, alongside others the Whale had eaten including the 4th Doctor.They would all later be freed by Turanga Leela in the 31st century, but more on that later.

A few months before the ship was consumed by the Whale, William Robinson sent out this distress signal, complete with footage of their adventures. The Robinson family, their robot and Doctor Smith would eventually return home, but it would not be for close to 1000 years.

Back on earth there was a great scandal over the loss of the Jupiter 2. Accusations of sabotage towards the USSR would nearly provoke a Third World War, but as the USA weren’t able to find any evidence and eventually things cooled down. Still the loss of the Jupiter 2 would be yet another setback for the space program.

The following year in 1998, the Mutant humans and Apes from the future, having fished the remains of Mechagodzilla out of the water and repaired him, made preparations for their next attack. Realizing that they’d need extra help against Godzilla, the Mutants sought out Doctor Mafune.

Mafune had lived in poverty since his career had been destroyed back in the 60s. Worse his work had now fallen into obscurity and his wife had fallen into depression, eventually killing herself. The Mutants meanwhile had read up on Mafune’s experiments and hoped that with them, they could control another monster to aid Mechagodzilla against Godzilla.

The Mutants and the Apes ensured Mafune’s loyalty by saving his daughter after one of Mafune’s own experiments had killed her. They revived Katsura as a Cyborg, though her mind was still her own.

In debt to them, Mafune gave the Apes and the Mutants the secrets they needed to build a device which could control Titanosaurus. Doctor Mafune knew full well the extent of the Apes and the Mutants plans, but he didn’t care. His bitterness and hatred of humanity for the years of loneliness and ridicule had driven him mad. Katsura meanwhile did not want to help the mutants, but sadly she had no choice.

The Apes and the Mutants could not only control her, but they would abuse Katsura, ridiculing her as a freak, and telling her that no one would ever love her the way she is now.

Worse still the time travellers would place Mechagodzilla’s brain in Katsura’s body, which would not only allow the monster to think for itself, but also easily survive any further attempts to tear its head off.

Mechagodzilla and Titanosaurus were let loose on Tokyo and Godzilla would confront the monsters. Though he was able to overpower Titanosaurus, Mechagodzilla was too powerful.

Godzilla battles Mechagodzilla and Titanosaurus to protect humanity.

Even though Godzilla managed to tear Mechagodzilla’s head from his shoulders once again, the robot was still able to defeat the king of the monsters. Katsura however, having regained control of her senses would sacrifice herself to destroy Mechagodzilla’s brain, putting the giant out of action for good.

Godzilla would then destroy the fleeing Ape and Mutant fleet, and then with a quick blast from his atomic ray, freed Titanosaurus from their control, with Titanosaurs then retreating back to the ocean to recover.

The Mutants and the Apes plans are foiled when Katsura sacrifices herself. Their fleet is then destroyed by Godzilla, ending their threat once and for all, whilst Doctor Mafune was betrayed by the Apes before hand leading to his death.

Over the course of the next year mankind would after the recent spat of monster attacks, make attempts to capture the monsters one by one and place them on a new Monsterland.

By 1999 almost all of the giant monsters of earth would be kept on Monsterland. Godzilla, Anguirus (who had recovered since his ordeal at the hands of Mechagodzilla) baby Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Manda, Gorosaurus, Kumonga and many more. Kong and Titanosaurus would be among the only giant monsters no relocated to Monsterland, with Titanosaurus living under the sea as before, and Kong continuing to inhabit Pharo Island.

Not long after it was established however, the monsters haven would be invaded by another race of hostile alien invaders. The Kilaks.

The Kilaks like many invaders hoped to weaponize the monsters of earth, having seen how they were able to repel various alien invaders. The Kilaks had already succeeded in controlling King Ghidorah (having caught him unaware after the destruction of the Garogans.)

The monsters mind control techniques would be just as effective against the earth monsters and they would unleash them on every major city on earth.

Mankind would smash the Kilaks control over the monsters, except for Ghidorah who they would send to destroy the earth monsters.

However Ghidorah proved to be no match for them, and Godzilla, Gorosaurus, Anguirus and baby Godzilla would finally destroy Ghidorah.

After a reign of terror lasting over a billion years, King Ghidorah finally meets his end at the hands of Godzilla, Gorosaurus, Anguirus and baby Godzilla.  

After Ghidorah’s death Godzilla would personally destroy the Kilaks base, eliminating their entire invasion fleet and saving humanity once again.

The monsters would then return to live on Monsterland where they would continue to live for the next several decades.

Towards the end of the 1999 humanity would face more trouble from the greatest threat to all life in N-Space. The Anti God!

Biran Marsh was still desperate to try and find a way to free Catherine Danforth after she had been imprisoned whilst stopping the Anti God. Brian’s every waking moment was consumed with guilt at having let Catherine make the sacrifice to stop Satan. Brian was determined that he was going to free her from the monster god above all else.

Brian spent over 10 years heading a project to try and explore other universes. The project was supervised by UNIT of course to make sure all went well. Despite his desperation to save Catherine, Brian was still aware of the danger the Anti God posed, and so he made sure that his experiment would free Catherine, and only Catherine.

Brian had found a way to zero in on a certain object from another universe and teleport it into our own. Brian hoped to use this to pull Catherine from the Anti God’s universe. He knew that after decades of torture she would be completely insane, but all that mattered was freeing her from the torment.

Brian’s experiment was a success and Catherine was pulled from the Anti God’s universe. Little did Brian know, the Anti God had corrupted Catherine in her decades long stay in its realm. It had turned her into a hideous Demon, even more dangerous than Satan himself.

Catherine feigned that she was happy to be free from her prison, but she soon made plans against him. Much like Satan she was able to possess others and turn them into savage beasts which she used to over run Brian’s facility. She kept Brian alive to torture. She told him of the pain she had gone through at the Anti God’s hands, and how she only ended up in its clutches because Brian and the others were too weak to help her. The tortures the Anti God had inflicted on her were beyond comprehension and that motivated her to free him, as she now wanted the entire world, that she felt had abandoned her to experience the same pain.

The 8th Doctor and his two companions, Rimmer and Avon were quickly drawn into the conflict when the Doctor received a vision of the Anti God emerging from the church. His advanced Time Lord brain allowed him to pick up the signals that humans could only see in their dreams.

The Doctor also noticed disturbances in the dimensional space on earth and quickly tried to locate the source. Along the way, he would encounter Crypto 141 whose Furon brain had been able to detect the warnings about the Anti God too.

The 4 were able to track down the source of the disturbance to Brian’s facility. Working with Brian they were able to shut down the machine just before Catherine could bring her “father” into our world.

Catherine fled into the streets of London, possessing more people and causing mass panic in the streets to distract the Doctor, UNIT and Crypto, whilst she fled with a piece of Brian’s machine which hoped to create a portal with.

Choosing a church as the place to free her master, the Doctor was able to track Catherine down from the warnings he had received in the future.

Whilst UNIT and Crypto held off the Priests she had possessed the Doctor, his companions and Brian made their way into the church to try and stop Catherine. Catherine easily overpowered them however and was able to create a portal to bring the Anti God into our world.

The portal appeared in the Church doors, and as the Anti God emerged from the Church, it instantly overpowered Crypto and all of the UNIT soldiers with its thoughts, forcing them to bow to it as it declared that a new age would begin.

The Anti God enters our world in the year 1999 thanks to Catherine’s actions.

Back in the Church the 8th Doctor and Brian were able to get through to Catherine, reminding her of the good woman she used to be and how the Anti God was just using her. At the last minute Catherine turned on the Anti God before he could fully materialize in N-Space. As the Anti God was pulled back into its own universe it attempted to hold on, but as it hadn’t fully crossed over it wasn’t strong enough and was sent screaming back into its prison.

Unfortunately the stress this put on Brian’s machine would cause it to explode. Whilst the Doctor, Rimmer, Brian and Avon escaped the exploding church, Catherine remained behind. Not wanting to be overcome with the Anti God’s evil again, she chose to die as herself.

Following Catherine’s death, all those she possessed would die too. Brian’s project was immediately shut down and he would spend the rest of his life as a recluse. Though Catherine had told him, just before her death to live his life to the fullest, he was never able to get over her death and remained a broken man until the end of his life.

The Anti God’s brief re-appearance on earth had been filmed by a young man named Victor Barwick, grandson of Howard Barwick, who was present during the original incident with Satan in the 80s.

Howard had told his grandson the truth about the incident and Victor became obsessed with it. He wasn’t sure he believed it of course, but on the date it was said to happen, Victor decided to visit the church in London the Anti God was said to come from in the visions.

He hung outside the Church with a camera and managed to remain hidden from UNIT. He caught the Anti God on camera for a few seconds before the monster noticed him, and brought Victor to his knees too.

After the crisis was averted, UNIT held Victor for a few hours to question him. After seeing the footage he had on film they knew that it was the footage that had been as a warning about the Anti God, and so Brigadier Bambera would order that Victors footage be sent backwards in time using Dalek tech harvested from the 1970s invasion, complete with a recording of a warning about the Anti God.

On the final day of the year 1999, the 7th Doctors TARDIS was brought to earth by his archenemy, the Master. The Tremas version of the Master had been exterminated by the Daleks in the far future. The Doctor had been tasked with bringing the Masters remains back to Gallifrey. Even in death however the Master could not be trusted.

Thanks to his experiments with the power of Traken years ago the Masters mind was able to survive as a disembodied creature for a short period of time. The Master was able to overrun the TARDIS and force it to crash into the middle of a gang war in New York. When the Doctor emerged from his TARDIS he was shot right away, and the Master was able to crawl to safety in his disembodied form.

The 7th Doctor would later die when medics, unfamiliar with his alien body accidentally killed him whilst trying to treat his gunshot wounds.

The 7th Doctor regenerates into the 8th Doctor.

The Master would take control of a young medic named Bruce and after brutally murdering Bruce’s wife, would attempt to open the minature Eye of Harmony in the Doctors TARDIS. All TARDIS came equipped with a small version of the Eye of Harmony that link to the main one back on Gallifrey, which powered every single TARDIS.

The Master hoped to schiphon the power of the eye into a device that would allow him to steal the Doctors remaining regenerations. Doing so however would rip the Eye apart, destroying the earth itself. The Master didn’t care however. He was more than happy to sacrifice billions of innocent lives to save his own miserable neck.

The Doctor however had set up a special defence system for his Eye of Harmony where it could only be opened by a human eye. (This incorrectly caused the Master to believe that the Doctor was half human for a short while, though the Doctor not wanting to let details of his life back home be revealed, played up the idea for a short while too. It was complete nonsense however. The Doctor was a Time Lord. He just simply regarded human beings as his favorite species.)

Still the Master was able to outwit the newly regenerated 8th Doctor by taking control of his new companion Grace’s mind. The Master with Grace’s help was very nearly able to steal the Doctors lives, but fortunately Grace was able to regain her senses in time and shut down the Eye. The Doctor and the Master then fought with one another which ended with the Master being absorbed into the Eye where he seemingly perished (though the Doctor would later discover the Masters mind had survived yet again, and the villain would take over the Doctors TARDIS before possessing the body of the Doctors companion James.)

At the same time as the Doctor was fighting the Master, on the night of the 31st December, 1999 another of N-Space’s greatest heroes life would be changed forever. Philip J Fry.

Philip was born in the year 1970. At the end of the 20th century his life seemed to be going nowhere. Whilst his relationship with his family was close, he was stuck in a dead end job as a delivery boy, and his girlfriend had dumped him.

Little did he know, he was one of the most important people in all of N-Space. Due to the fact that he was his own grandfather, Fry lacked the Delta brainwave which all organic and mechanical life forms possessed. This made him the only person who could stand against the Brainspawn, hideous minions of the Anti God who could reduce the intelligence of almost any life form to the point where they would be helpless.

One of the Nibblonians (who would later come to be named Nibbler) had foreseen that Fry would have to stop the Brainspawn in the year 3000. Since he would not live that long, Nibbler would have to freeze Fry until then. He lured Fry to the Cryogenic lab with a crank call, and then when Fry was leaning back seconds before the clock struck midnight, Nibbler blew on it, sending Fry back into one of the tubes where he would remain frozen for 1000 years

A time travelling version of Fry would later arrive at this exact moment. This version of Fry had come from the 31st century. He had successfully defeated the Brain Spawn before they were about to activate their weapon that would have destroyed the entire universe by sending them into another, uninhabited universe. Unfortunately however Fry had become trapped with the monsters and they offered to help him go back to his own time and stop himself from being frozen. Fry agreed both to save himself, and to get back at the Nibblonians, who he had just discovered had orchestrated for him to be frozen.

Fry arrived back minutes before Nibbler pushed him into the tube and began to choke the Nibblonian. Nibbler tried to explain to Fry how important it was that he be alive to stop the Brain Spawn. Fry was so angry at being used he didn’t care, until he thought back to the woman he loved in the future, Leela. Knowing that saving himself now would doom Leela, Fry pushed his elder self into the tube to ensure he would be frozen.

Just before he faded away however he left Nibbler with a warning that the machine he used to try and escape the Brainspawn (Scouty Puff JR) in the future broke down, and so in the new timeline, the Nibblonians gave Fry a more advanced model (Scouty Puff SR) that allowed Fry to set off his bomb and escape the Brain Spawn this time.

As the 20th century draws to a close, Fry sacrifices himself to save the woman he loves.

21st Century

The scourge of humanity throughout much of the 21st century. The Mekon.

As the 21st Century dawned, mankind’s future looked a lot more promising than ever before. It had advanced to new levels technologically, it had found a way to control its giant monster population and it was aware that it was no longer alone in the universe. As the decades rolled on, humanity would reach new levels of technological and social development, but unfortunately the 21st century would also see one of the darkest periods in human history during the Mekon’s invasion of earth.

2000’s-2040’s The Rise of Spacefleet

Image result for dan dare spacefleet

Throughout the first 10 or so years of the 21st century nothing changed much for humanity. The Furons operated in secret to harvest human DNA, and Godzilla and the other monsters would occasionally leave their island to defend mankind from another threat. Among these included gigantic robots created by the Mekons human agents on earth, one of the Anti God’s Demons, named Dialoka, and a monster created by a second wave of Zygon invaders, larger and more dangerous than the Skarasan.

In the early part of the 21st century, Department Q was bought by the reclusive millionaire and former 70s popstar Ethan Kotasbi. Kotasbi would expand the Department over the next few years, with its membership having dropped to just two people, Doctor Jonathan Brand and his assistant Jennifer Simmons before he took over. However the new team would be beset with various problems including team members being possessed by Demons and the team turning on one another.

In 2007, Department Q would finally come to an end when the team turned on Kotasbi, who had more sinister plans for them, which resulted in the deaths of Kotasbi and most of the teams members.

Earth would also receive another protector in the year 2001 in the form of Ultraman.

Ultraman was the combination of two beings. A human named Shin Hayata, and an Ultra Warrior from Nebula M78.

The Ultra Warrior had been pursuing a gigantic monster through space when he crashed into Shin Hayata killing him. Feeling guilt for Hayata’s death, the Ultra Warrior merged his body with Hayata’s. This would restore Hayata to life and allow him to change into the giant Ultra warrior when he needed too.

Hayata worked for Science Patrol an organisation established in the late 90s to deal with earth’s giant monsters in Japan to replace their branch of UNIT that had been destroyed during the Gyaos invasion.

He would regularly change into his Ultra Warrior form to battle various giant monsters that threatened the earth. In this form he would become known as Ultraman, and become celebrated as one of the earth’s greatest heroes.

Ultraman battles various monsters to save humanity in the first decade of the 21st century.

One of Ultraman’s most notable battles was with the monster known as Jirass. Jirass was created by Professor Nikaido from the DNA of the original, 54, deceased Godzilla. Nikaido had raided the Blisk’s headquarters some time after their defeat in the 70s. There he discovered the bones of the first Godzilla, left to rot by the Blisk and tried to clone the original Godzilla.

Nikaido did succeed in creating a new female Godzilla, but it was not a clone of the original. It was much smaller and weaker at first than either of the previous two Godzillas. Furthermore this Godzilla would develop more unintended mutations that were not present in the first two, thanks to Nikaido’s experiments.

The most obvious of these were a giant frill around the new Godzilla’s neck. Nikaido would dub this new Godzilla, Jirass and set it loose, for no reason other than because he wanted to create a legendary monster of his own.

Ultraman faced the monster and after a vicious fight seemingly killed Jirass by ripping off her frill.

Jirass however survived. Her accelerated healing factor allowed her to recover from her wounds (though she never regrew her frill, and would always bare a scar from her battle with Ultraman.)

Jirass would later form an alliance with various other rogue giant monsters and launch another rampage in Japan in 2007, which both Ultraman and the male Godzilla would unite to stop.

During the fight Jirass whose strength had increased since her last meeting nearly killed Ultraman, but he would be saved by Godzilla. After the monsters were defeated, Godzilla would take the wounded Jirass back to Monsterland, not wanting to lose the only other adult member of his kind he had discovered. Once she recovered, Jirass would remain on Monsterland with the male Godzilla. She and the male Godzilla were unable to have a child of their own due to their mutations, but Jirass would become the adopted mother of Godzilla’s child.

Jirass would help Godzilla battle various other monsters and alien invasions over the course of the next 50 years. People would come to view her as a hero too, and the press would dub Jirass “Queen of the Monsters”.

Ultraman and Jirass have their first battle with one another. Though initially facing each other as enemies, Jirass would later become an ally of Ultraman and a force for good in the world.

Ultraman would in the year 2010 find a way to separate from his human counterpart Shin Hayata without killing him, thanks to bis superior Zoffy who had managed to track him down. The Ultra Warrior would leave with Zoffy and continue the good fight across the universe, whilst Shin Hayata would resume his normal life back on earth.

Two years on in 2012 ,the USA and Russia would be plunged into a war which only lasted for a year, but had utterly devastating consequences for both.

After the war in 2012, the cold war would come to an end and a new era of peace would be ushered in for the next ten or so years.

In the year 2013 the 11th Doctor would face the Devourer for the first time. The Devourer had crashed landed onto the earth many hundreds of years ago in Haiti. It was so badly damaged in the crash that it would remain as a mindless entity floating through the wilderness occasionally reanimating the dead. These undead creatures would be christened Zombies by the locals. Unlike the other dead the Devourer brought to life, these Zombies were just mindless creatures, utterly harmless and easily tamed by the locals. The Zombies would become a useful slave force for the locals, and many priests would claim that they were responsible for the creation of the Zombies with their “magic”. They would then attempt to create more “Zombies” by using a drug that would reduce living people into being brain dead slaves. As time went on this sick practice would become more widespread to the point where most people in Haiti believed that Zombies were just poor souls, captured, and drugged into being slaves, unaware that some of them were actually real Zombies.

In 2013 however the Devourer began to regain its former power and intelligence after a century or so of healing. Its Zombies soon began to attack and devour the locals. The Eleventh Doctor however was able to stop the monster from regaining its former strength, but unfortunately he did not destroy it as he believed.

The Devourer escaped to Shanghai where it created an army of Zombies which devastated the city before the Doctor once again was able to foil the Devourer. The monster would then revive many of the previous giant monsters that the likes of Godzilla and King Kong had killed, including several Gyaos and King Ghidorah himself! Naturally Godzilla, Jirass, Anguirus, and Kong would face these giant Zombies. Zombie Ghidorah proved to be the most dangerous, but Godzilla, Jiras, Anguirus and Kong managed to tear Zombie Ghidorah apart after a truly vicious battle.

The Doctor would once again defeat the Devourer but it escaped into space where it would attack the Federation, leading to Zombies appearing on various worlds around the Galaxy, the Doctor would finally destroy the monster, but at the cost of his 11th incarnations life.

In the year 2019, the egg of the last Gamera would hatch, with the Gamera growing to full size in a matter of months. This second Gamera would invade defeat a giant monster known as Zedus before going to explore deep space like the first Gamera.

In the year 2020 mankind would be invaded by the Cybermen once again. These Cybermen were the survivors of the 1986 invasion. Having spent decades slowly building themselves up, abducting people and converting them in secret, the Cybermen were ready for a counter attack. They had also constructed several giant robots to do battle with earth’s monsters. These robots would be dubbed Cyber King’s.

The invasion was far larger than the previous two combined and resulted in the deaths of millions of people, with whole cities being converted into Cybermen. With the aid of the 12th Doctor, and Godzilla, humanity would finally defeat the Cybermen in the year 2022.

Over the course of the next two decades all of the different races and nations of the earth would come together like never before. In light of the devastation of the Cyber invasion, many of humanity’s old issues were abandoned and a new global power called Space Fleet would be established. By the end of the 2030s, mankind had established a colony on Mars. The first colonist on Mars was Philip J Fry the Second, nephew of the original Philip J Fry.

In the original timeline Philip J Fry 2, never knew his uncle. After the original Philip was frozen, his older brother Yancy would name his son after him. Philip and Yancy had never had an easy relationship, and years later in the 31st century when Philip heard about his nephew he believed his brother had stolen his lucky clover and his identity, but was later touched when he discovered the truth and was finally able to move on from his past.

Fry learns the truth about his nephew.

This timeline would later be altered however when Fry travelled backwards in time from the 31st century, creating a time duplicate of himself, who would resume the original’s life for the first ten or so years of the 21st century, and continue to live with his family, including Yancy and Philip the 2nd (who was still named after his uncle.)

This time duplicate version of Fry would later return to the future by freezing himself after discovering that he was destined to become Lars, Leela’s husband in the future (with it being Fry’s jealousy of Lars that had motivated him to travel to the past in the first place.)

Regardless of these changes to the timeline, (which would have a greater effect in the 31st century.) Philip the 2nd would still be the first man on Mars in the 2030s, establishing a thriving colony on the planet by the late 2040s.

By the 2040s mankind had recovered completely from the third Cyber invasion, and having established colonies on other worlds, and having made tremendous advances in medical science, and space travel, mankind was entering into what would be one of the greatest periods in its history.

In the next section of the history of N-Space we will be looking at age of Spacefleet, Dan Dare’s battles with the Mekon, the final fate of earth’s giant monsters, the horrors of the Dalek invasion of earth in the 22nd century, the rise of the Space corps, and the legendary loss of the mining ship, Red Dwarf, humanity’s darkest hour during the years of the Terran Federation, the Cyber wars, the golden age of humanity during the 31st century, and finally humanity’s ultimate downfall and enslavement at the hands of the Apes.

Remembrance of the Daleks Review

The final Dalek story of Classic Who. Remembrance of the Daleks also marked a radical change in the character of the 7th Doctor.

Initially at the urging of Michael Grade to supposedly counteract the levels of violence in the Colin Baker era, the 7th Doctor was portrayed as a clown, but from this story on he would be a much darker, more manipulative character.

Plot

The Doctor and his companion Ace arrive 1963 London near Coal Hill School where the first Doctor arrived many years ago.

The Doctor claims to have unfinished business that he needs to clear up.

The Doctor discovers that two warring Dalek factions are here. One, the renegade Daleks who follow a black Dalek, the other the imperial Daleks who follow the Emperor.

The renegades base is on earth, whilst the Imperials is a gigantic mothership hovering above the earth.

After a showdown with a renegade drone and some soldiers, the Doctor investigates Coal Hill School and discovers that the Imperials are teleporting their minions to earth via a transmat in the basement of the school. 

The Doctor deduces that the Daleks are after the hand of omega. The Hand of Omega is the device that Omega used to create the eye of harmony, which ultimately gave the Time Lords mastery of time and space. Though both Dalek factions can time travel, the Hand of Omega will make the Daleks as powerful as the Time Lords and allow them to decimate all of time and space. 

The Doctor buries the Hand of Omega in a nearby grave, but the renegade Daleks human servants are able to find it.

The renegade Daleks are served by a former Nazi sympathiser named Mr Ratcliff. Among his followers include a member of Group Captain Gilmore’s platoon Mike, who is helping the Doctor contain the Dalek civil war from spilling out into the streets of London. 

Ace develops feelings for Mike until she discovers his true nature after which she is heartbroken.

The Doctor stops the renegades from leaving with the Hand of Omega by sabotaging their time vessel.

The Imperial Dalek forces who are greater and have a special weapons Dalek, slaughter all of the Renegades except for the black Dalek who flees the battle. Mr Ratcliff is killed by another of the Daleks human servants, a little girl that they have taken over, whilst Mike escapes with the Dalek time machine.

The Imperials steal the Hand of Omega and take it back to their shim. The Doctor contacts them and demands that they return it. The Emperor of the Daleks reveals himself to be Davros and tells the Doctor that he intends to use the Hand of Omega to turn Skaro’s sun into a source of unimaginable power, and that the Daleks will then destroy all earth and Gallifrey.

The Doctor angers Davros and then feigns fear after which the villain puts his plan into action. To Davros’ horror however he discovers that the Doctor has rigged the Hand of Omega to destroy Skaro’s sun, vaporising the planet into nothing. The feedback then destroys the mother ship, seemingly killing Davros (though unknown to the Doctor he manages to escape.)

The little girl who serves the Daleks kills Mike and confronts Ace, whilst the Doctor faces down the Black Supreme Dalek.

The Doctor tells the Dalek that his home planet is destroyed, and his race is dead. The black Dalek refuses to believe at first but when reality hits home it goes insane and kills itself.

Upon its death the little girl is freed from its control, though sadly she is left emotionally broken by the experience.

After attending Mike’s funeral, the Doctor and Ace leave, with Ace unsure if they did the right thing. The Doctor tells her that “time will tell. It always does.”

Review

Remembrance of the Daleks is a fitting end to the Daleks for the classic series, not only because its a fantastic story to see the monsters out on, but also because in many ways it brings the monsters back to their roots and resolves a lot of loose ends.

First and foremost Remembrance returns the Daleks to being the centre stage again. Though Davros appears and is integral to the plot, its only in the last few minutes.

I liked Davros but it is true that he was overshadowing the monsters a bit too much.

The monsters are also suitably formidable and dangerous here too. Only the most powerful weapons are shown to be capable of taking down a lone Dalek drone, and at one point the Doctor even mentions that the Dalek mothership is capable of cracking the planet open like an egg!

An old weakness is also finally conquered as we see a Dalek ascend a flight of stairs. I must admit I think its done far better here than in the revival. The revival just goes for a full CGI option, whilst Remembrance actually uses a proper Dalek prop and balances it on several poles that they keep hidden.

This story also returns the Daleks to being parallels for the Nazis, by having a former Nazi collaborator work with them.

Mr Ratcliff who is played superbly by former UFO star George Sewell, serves as the Mavic Chen, devious humanoid type of figure for the Daleks to play off of in this story (as Davros is only featured at the end and for once is in a full position of authority.)

He’s not the most complex example of this type of character, but still its good to see the trope being used right to the end, and there are some wonderful little moments where we see how Ratcliff is drawn to the Daleks ideology for much the same reasons, and how his bitterness at being rejected for his beliefs drives him on.

The relationship between Davros and the Daleks also takes a great new turn in this story as well. Davros has finally managed to gain control of the Daleks but its at a cost to his for want of a better term humanity.

Davros knows that the Daleks will never accept him because he is not one of them. However if he creates an army who are simply loyal to him then they won’t be as effective as they will just be mindless drones who can’t think for themselves like the Necrosian Daleks who were destroyed easily.

So Davros changes himself to the point where he now is basically nothing more than a glorified Dalek.

I feel that Remembrance served as a brilliant way of ending both the Daleks and Davros, yet also leaving the door open if they wanted.

At this point it must have been obvious to John Nathan Turner that the show wasn’t long for this world. It was despised by virtually all of the heads of the BBC, sci fi as a mainstream genre in the United Kingdom was on its way out, and the show had been consigned to the graveyard slot.

Thus Remembrance resolves all of the dangling plot threads that have been building up since the 70s.

The Dalek civil war finally comes to an end with Davros at last gaining control of the Daleks, but at a cost to his own self. The Doctor also finally does what he should have done with Davros and the Daleks decades ago.

In Genesis he genuinely thought that he did not have the right to carry out a genocide, even to a race like the Daleks. Now however he feels he has to, as the Daleks are on the cusp of becoming as powerful as the Time Lords themselves. Similarly with Davros we have seen 5 struggle with the decision to kill him as Peter Davison, and be ready from a moral point of view to kill him as Colin Baker, but ultimately still not be prepared from a practical point of view to dispose Davros.

The 7th Doctor in contrast is ready for Davros in every respect, and we see that superbly in 7’s final showdown with Davros where he not only tricks him with the hand of omega, but plays on his irrational anger and vanity into provoking him into using it without thinking.

The Doctors callousness to Davros as the latter pitifully begs him for mercy is also a brilliant call back to Genesis, except this time its the Doctor ironically, that Davros is begging to show mercy.

Remembrance also resolves the Daleks vs Time Lords theme that has been running throughout many previous Dalek stories too.

Before I always thought that the idea of Daleks fighting the Time Lords in general, and not just the Doctor was mostly a New Who thing, but on a recent rewatch of all the classic era stories, you can see that it was actually quite a big thread throughout many key Classic era stories.

In Planet of the Daleks the Time Lords send the Doctor stop them on Spirodon, in Genesis the Time Lords are terrified of the Daleks to such an extent that they are willing to break their most important law and completely change the history of the entire universe to stop them.

Whilst its true that the Time Lords have sent the Doctor to interfere in the affairs of his other foes like the Cybermen in Attack of the Cybermen. They have never gone to such drastic measures before, and so you can see how as early as Genesis, that the Daleks are deemed potentially to be the biggest threat to the Time Lords.

Resurrection meanwhile shows the Daleks now be bold enough to take the fight to the Time Lords, albeit in sneaky, underhand ways.

Remembrance finally however shows the Daleks be willing to wage an all out war on the Doctors people. They know they still aren’t quite ready to take them yet, so they steal the hand of omega which will make them powerful enough to in Davros’ words “sweep away Gallifrey.”

It is only thanks to the Doctors actions that either the Renegade or Imperial Daleks are not able to decimate Gallifrey, with the Doctor much like how the Time Lords wanted him to in Genesis finally being prepared to go incredible lengths to end this threat to his people and the rest of the universe once and for all.

Remembrance manages to wrap up all of these dangling plot threads to the point where had it been their last appearance then it would have been a satisfactory ending to the monsters. Yet at the same time Remembrance doesn’t salt the earth for future writers either as it does still leave the door open for future stories with the Daleks and Davros.

Davros is shown to have escaped the Doctors attempt on his life. Its a brilliant twist that ultimately for all his machinations and carefully thought out plans, the Doctor still underestimates Davros.

Furthermore as Davros is still around, then obviously he could easily create a new race of Daleks. Worse as the Doctor thinks they are dead, then they could act in secret, and they still know the secrets of the Time Lords too.

Added to that the 7th Doctor, despite his callous, ruthless facade is still shown to be unsure throughout the story, such as in the famous cafe scene, which is a good sequel to the iconic “Have I that right” moment from Genesis.

Once again the Doctor looks at his decision from all angles, both morally from a does he have the right to wipe out an entire species, and from the practical of what will the ramifications be of removing such a key power, for better or for worse from the universe.

Ultimately however because he is a little older and wiser and been through so much since Tom’s time he makes the opposite decision from the one in Genesis.

Just as with the ending of Genesis however, the Doctor and his companions are not sure if they have done the right thing.

The next Dalek story could have had the Doctor feel guilty at the ruthlessness of his previous selves actions, or maybe he would be devastated to see the Daleks and Davros had survived and be even more determined to destroy them than ever before, knowing how close they came to threatening his people.

Aside from bringing all of the major Dalek storylines together to a fantastic conclusion, as a piece of television on its own Remembrance succeeds on virtually all counts.

Its brilliantly paced, and with plenty of action and wonderful twists along the way. The first time I saw it I did genuinely think it was Davros in the little girls chair, not just because it physically resembles Davros, but also because you’d never expect him to be the one in the position of power against the Daleks either.

Apart from some wobbly Dalek props on location, the stories production values are very strong too with the spaceship effect landing in the playground and the Daleks fights with each other being very well done in particular.

The direction all around for the story is excellent. I always loved the opening where we hear the voices of so many key influential figures throughout the 20th century such as Martin Luther King speaking with each other as the Dalek mothership looms towards the earth. It really shows you how all of the problems we have had with each other are NOTHING compared to what’s about to descend on our planet.

The acting from the leads is also very strong. You can tell that Sylvester McCoy loves playing the darker Doctor. He’s so much more comfortable and confident in the role. He doesn’t jettison all of the humour however which is a good thing as a large part of his Doctors appeal is his quirky humour. There are some wonderfully funny little moments with Ace such as their arguments in the van, but its never to the extent where you aren’t able to take his Doctor seriously.

Sophie Aldred meanwhile makes a very strong debut as Ace. She brings a real physicality to the role of the companion that we haven’t seen before or since, apart from with Leela.

The scene where she smashes the Dalek with a baseball bat before she crashes through a window is a particular highlight and shows how Ace is unlike other companions.

At the same time however Sophie and the script also bring a real vulnerability to the character too such as in her relationship with Mike, the way she cradles and comforts the young girl after she has been freed from the Daleks control, and the final scene of episode 2 where she is overwhelmed by the Daleks.

Finally another notable thing to mention about this story was that it was intended to celebrate the shows 25th anniversary. There are a couple of little clever nods to the past, such as the setting, not only in Coal Hill School, but in 1963, the year the show began.

The characters of Professor Rachel Jensen and Allison are also homages to previous companions Barbara and Liz Shaw, whilst Group Captain Gilmore is an obvious stand in for the Brig.

Still the continuity references are not like the clips in say The Magicians Apprentice. They serve a purpose in the story, are more slight so as not alienate new viewers and the characters who are homages to previous companions are not just distaff counterparts, but characters in their own right.

Rachel Jensen played by Pamela Salem could have been an excellent companion, as she is useful to the Doctor, and her chemistry with Sylvester is brilliant. I’m not saying I would have wanted her to replace Ace or anything, but I would definitely rank her among the one shot characters who could have been companions list.

Overall Remembrance of the Daleks is an exciting, action packed, classic story that manages to round off all of the major Dalek story threads from classic who whilst at the same time taking them back to their roots as Nazi parallels, and leaving the door open for future stories with the monsters.

Trivia

  • Script editor Andrew Cartmel named this as his favourite story out of all the ones he worked on.
  • Terry Molloy’s final performance as Davros on television, but he would reprise the role many times in Big Finish audios.
  • Davros was originally not to have appeared in this story. Its author Ben Aaronivitch said that he felt the character had undermined the Daleks. It was apparently on the suggestion of a prop designer whilst building the Dalek Emperor prop that Davros be included and JNT agreed to it. Others have disputed this however as JNT has also said in various other interviews that Terry Nation forced him to include Davros in every Dalek story he made.
  • The Daleks have turned the little girl into their servant to overcome their reliance on logic. Children are used to man their battle computers as they have a limitless imagination and with the aid of Dalek tech can conceive scenario’s the logical Daleks could not otherwise. The Daleks in the revival are shown to overcome their reliance on logic through the creation of the Cult of Skaro who are given individual personalities and imaginations.

Revelation of the Daleks Review

The 6th Doctors only outing on tv against the Daleks. Revelation was also the last story to be produced before the show’s initial 18 month cancellation.

Though controversial at the time due to its excessive violence. Revelation of the Daleks has since become regarded as one of the most innovative and intelligent scripts the series ever produced.

Plot

The Doctor and Peri arrive on the planet Necros. Necros is a planet where the bodies of the terminally ill are placed in suspended animation until a cure can be found for their condition.

The Doctors old friend Arthur Stengos has placed himself in suspended animation which according to the Doctor isn’t like him at all, so the Doctor wants to investigate.

Along the way to the facility where the frozen bodies are kept, Tranquil Repose, the Doctor and Peri are attacked by a strange mutant, who Peri is forced to kill to save the Doctor.

With his dying breath the mutant regains control of himself, and actually thanks Peri for freeing him.

He tells the Doctor that the great healer did this to him and that he is using the frozen bodies on this planet for his own experiments. Before he can reveal more however the mutant dies.

Meanwhile Arthur Stengos’ daughter Natasha and her friend Grigory break into Tranquil Repose and discover what has happened to her father.

The Great Healer is actually Davros, and he has been turning the frozen bodies here into his new race of Daleks who are completely loyal to him.

Stengos is half way to becoming a Dalek, but he manages to regain his composure long enough to beg Natasha to kill him before he becomes a monster which she reluctantly agrees too.

Unfortunately Natasha and Grigory are soon captured by two of the staff at Tranquil Repose.

There is descent in Davros’ ranks meanwhile. Kara who owns the company that distributes the food Davros sells to pay for equipment wants to dispose of Davros to gain all of the profits for herself. She hires a knight named Oricini and his quire bostock to dispose of him. Kara however ultimately intends to betray them once they have killed Davros and gives them both a secret bomb that will go off once they have disposed of Davros.

The Doctor and Peri after discovering a false grave of the Doctors 6th incarnation, encounter a perverse, lecherous man named Jobel and his assistant Tasambeker who is in love with Jobel (despite the fact that he treats her appallingly.)

Peri is sent off to meet the local DJ, whilst the Doctor investigates what’s going on. Unfortunately the Doctor is led into a trap by Tasmebeker and captured by Davros’ Daleks.

The Doctor is placed in a cell with Natasha and Grigory, and all three are freed by Orcini.

Davros however being aware that the Doctor is on the planet and that Kara has sent assassins after him dispatches Daleks to capture Kara and Peri. The DJ attempts to protect Peri, but the Daleks kill him.

Oricni meanwhile fails miserably in his attempts to kill Davros. Kara is then brought before Orcini where Davros reveals that she intended to betray him. Oricini stabs Kara to death as a result.

Davros also monitors Jobel and discovering that he too is planning to betray him. He orders Tasembeker to kill Jobel, but instead she tries to help him escape. Jobel however refuses to believe her that Davros wants him dead and cruelly mocks her, which angers her enough to stab him to death with a syringe.

The Daleks then exterminate Tasembeker, whilst the Doctor is captured yet again. Natasha and Grigory meanwhile are exterminated whilst trying to sabotage the Daleks incubation chambers.

Davros reveals to a captive Doctor that he escaped from the prison ship when they last met, and that he has acquired the equipment to build his new army of Daleks by turning several of the bodies frozen into food and selling them to the outer planets that are starving for a healthy profit..

Those he judges to be the higher intellects he has turned into his new race of Daleks who will soon be ready to wage war against the rest of the galaxy.

Unfortunately for Davros however one of the staff at Tranquil Repose named Teker, grows disgusted with what Davros is doing and summons the original Daleks from Skaro.

These Daleks exterminate Davros’ new Daleks that are active and before Davros can activate his army they corner him. The Daleks decide to take Davros back to Skaro to stand trial for his crimes against them. Davros vows to the Doctor that he will return, but the Doctor states that he will be waiting for him.

The Doctor manages to destroy the Skaro Dalek on guard. (The Skaro Daleks intend to take control of Davros’ army and use them in their conquest of other planets.)

Oricini however uses his bomb to destroy Davros’ dormant army of Daleks first, sacrificing himself in the process.

The Doctor tells the staff at Tranquil Repose that they need to continue the demand for food this place has created for the starving planets, and gives them an alternate solution of harnessing the flowers that grow on the planet as a food source.

Review

Revelation of the Daleks is more of a Davros story than a Dalek one. This story more than any other turns them into Davros’ mooks, and their screen time and interactions with the Doctor are very limited.

Still in spite of this drawback, Revelation is deserving of its status as a classic. Terry Molloy gives an absolutely stellar performance as Davros.

Molloy is able to show a completely new side to Davros through his twisted sense of humour. There are some wonderfully dark, yet genuinely funny lines such as Davros’ “consumer resistance” gag. I never thought I’d giggle at a joke about cannibalism of all things.

In Resurrection whilst Molloy was good his performance was just a retread of Michael Wishers, IE loud and screaming one minute, but then calm and eerie the next.

Here however Molloy completely makes the role his own and instead portrays Davros his own way.

Davros is really at the top of his game in this story. He completely and utterly outsmarts the Doctor throughout it. At no point does the Time Lord have the better of his archenemy. Furthermore its interesting watching how all of these other people like Jobel, Kara and Orcini all completely underestimate Davros, and how Davros is able to turn people against each other such as Orcini and Kara and Tasembeker and Jobel.

We get to see Davros be manipulative in a more complex and detailed way than before. Here he doesn’t just lie or trick people or hypnotise them like in Resurrection. We see Davros get under people’s skin, play on their resentments and emotions and attempt to make them genuinely loyal to him such as with Tasembeker.

Its such a wonderful little insight into how vicious Davros is when he tells Tasembeker that if someone had treated him, the way that Jobel treated her, he would have killed them!

Whilst Davros is the star of the show, the Daleks are not completely overlooked. Saward still does do a number of interesting, new things with them.

The idea of humans being turned into Daleks is a both a fascinating and horrifying concept.

It opens up several new avenues for the Daleks, namely body horror and the fear of being turned into a monster which is brilliantly demonstrated in the sequence where Natasha discovers her father has become a Dalek.

The make up for Stengos is effective. I love the way the rotting and disgusting flesh actually throbs on Stengos’ brain. Its a nice little touch that does genuinely make it seem organic. Its also disturbing watching the Dalek conditioning slowly take over Stengos’ mind, whilst he is still aware of what a monster he is becoming.

The idea of humans being turned into Daleks would resurface many times in New Who and various Big Finish stories, but to be honest I don’t think its ever been as effective as it was in this story. In The Parting of the Ways and Asylum of the Daleks for instance they don’t actually show us the half human, half Dalek hybrids in any detail. We only see Clara as a human, and a tiny fleeting glimpse of a Dalek mutant with two eyes in The Parting of the Ways.

Saward and John Nathan Turner really had more guts to show us the gruesome aspects of the change, much like they did with Cyber conversion in Attack of the Cybermen.

I also like the way that Davros’ Daleks are ultimately shown to be nowhere near as effective as the original Daleks.

The reason for that is because they are literally just mooks who do everything that Davros says and can’t think for themselves.

Ultimately Davros can never win. If he creates a race of Daleks who are merely his slaves like the Necrosian Daleks, then they will be nothing but mindless drones, but if he creates a race of Daleks like the originals then they will eventually realise they don’t need him like at the end of Genesis.

Its also a nice twist to have the Daleks unwittingly save the day for once. They are still as ruthless and evil as ever, but what Davros is doing is so heinous, you don’t care who stops him, even if its the Daleks!

Aside from the Daleks and Davros, Saward’s script benefits from a strong cast of supporting characters.

Jobel played by Clive Swift is a big favourite of mine. I love the way that there is absolutely nothing redeeming about him at all. When Tasembeker is breaking down in absolute distress, he is having a great time.

Of course the brilliant irony is that EVERYBODY despises Jobel apart from Tasembeker. The Doctor and Peri regard him as a filthy little grotesque, whilst even his own co-workers find him repugnant.

Notice how NONE of them come to his aid after Tasembeker stabs him in the chest? They all just carry on as usual. They don’t even try and apprehend Tasembeker for killing someone right in front of them, as hey its Jobel.

Jobels wig falling off his head as he dies is another brilliant moment of dark comedy. Apparently it was on the suggestion of Clive Swift himself that Jobel wear a wig and that if fall off when he dies. He said that he wanted the nasty little man to be humiliated as much as possible in his final moments.

Even Jobel’s actor hated him!

Kara meanwhile is an interesting foil for Davros. In any other story she’d be the main villain. She is a greedy, ruthless, woman who is happy for people to literally eat each other if it can make her a profit.

However she is completely and utterly out of her league when it comes to Davros, and all of her clever little schemes just completely backfire on her.

Orcini and Bostock are also a brilliant double act. They are a great new twist on the Don Quixote and Sancho Panza idea. Like Don Quixote and Sancho Panza they are delusional, but rather than just be two idiots who think they are great warriors, they are two men who refuse in spite of what they say, to acknowledge that they are no longer capable of being the great warriors they once were. Their best days are behind them and they suffer a humiliating defeat at Davros’ hands as a result.

Still Orcini redeems himself in more ways than one with his final action in destroying Davros’ new army of Daleks. Oricini clearly knows that he will most likely never get a chance for an honourable kill again, and so rather than live a life of needless violence, he goes out as a hero.

There’s also the fact that his only friend Bostock is gone too, and its somewhat moving watching him hug his lifeless corpse in his last few moments.

Colin Baker also puts in a fine performance here too. Some have criticised the fact that the Doctor doesn’t do much in this story, and I can agree with that complaint to some extent, though I think it has been a bit exaggerated over the years. Critics always seem to forget that the Doctor does fix the famine crisis that is affecting hundreds of planets across the universe.

Still its true that he generally seems to be on the outside to the main action for the most part. Nevertheless Colin does get some great moments that show a softer side to his Doctor such as his compassion for the dying mutant and Orcini.

You can see how this was clearly the beginning of the production team making the 6th Doctor into a softer figure. Its just such a shame that they were never able to complete this story arc properly.

Overall whilst it might have some flaws, Revelation of the Daleks is still a classic adventure and moves the Davros story arc along excellently.

Trivia

  • At the end of this story the Doctor says he wants to take Peri somewhere nice, but it cuts off before we can find out where he wants to take her. This was intended to lead into the first story next series Nightmare Fair where the Doctor would take Peri to Blackpool and encounter the Celestial Toymaker. Sadly however the 1985 cancellation botched these plans, though Nightmare Fair would later be made as a Big Finish audio story.
  • In the 40th anniversary poll for the fans favourite stories, this was the 3rd highest ranked Dalek story on the list after Genesis of the Daleks and Remembrance of the Daleks, at number 11.
  • Laurence Olivier was originally going to appear in this story. He was a Doctor Who fan and had apparently been annoyed that he had never been asked to guest star in the series. Sadly however his busy schedule prevented this from happening. Olivier would have played the dying mutant.
  • This was the last Doctor Who story produced in the 45 minute format until the shows revival in 2005.
  • Eric Saward said he based this story on the novel The Loved One.

Resurrection of the Daleks Review

The first Dalek story of the 80s. Resurrection of the Daleks was one of the darkest and most violent Doctor Who stories of the decade and provoked controversy from both fans and mainstream viewers.

It marked the only time the 5th Doctor faced the Daleks on screen (though they did appear in a tiny cameo in The Five Doctors, but they did not meet the 5th Doctor in that story.)

Plot

On 1980s earth a group of prisoners from the future attempt to escape onto the streets, but they are gunned down by two police men.

In reality the prisoners were Dalek slaves, whilst the police men are human duplicates created by the Daleks. 

Two prisoners manage to escape to a nearby warehouse, though one of them is later killed by Dalek agents.

Back in the future, the Daleks attack a prison ship and slaughter almost all of its crew. The Daleks are planning to rescue Davros who has been kept in cryogenic suspension for 90 years.

The Daleks are served by a group of human mercenaries led by a man named Lytton. Lytton tells Davros that in the 90 years he was frozen, the Dalek and the Movellan war has finished, and that the Movellans defeated the Daleks.

The Movellans were able to create a virus that attacked the Dalek mutants inside the casing, and virtually exterminated their race. 

The Daleks have now finally returned to their creator, hoping that he can find a way to cure them. Davros however is more reluctant at being used this time. 

The Doctor and his two companions, Teegan and Turlough meanwhile are dragged through a time corridor to modern day earth, near the warehouse where the two Dalek prisoners escaped too. 

There the Doctor meets the last surviving prisoner named Stein. As they explore the warehouse, Turlough vanishes, having been abducted by the Dalek time corridor.

The Doctor also discovers the military have arrived at the house to investigate the sighting of some mysterious bomb like objects.

Just then the Daleks having seen that their plan to drag the Doctor to earth using their time corridor has succeeded, send a Dalek to capture him. 

The Doctor however is able to destroy the Dalek with the aid of the military, though not before it exterminates a soldier and wounds Teegan.

The Daleks however don’t give up and send more Daleks who not only exterminate the entire military squad, but duplicate them as well.

The duplicate military squad capture Teegan and the last surviving scientist Laird, whilst the Doctor and Stein make their way to the Dalek ship through the Dalek time corridor. There the Doctor discovers that Stein is a Dalek duplicate and double agent.

The Doctor is captured and the Daleks reveal why they brought him and his companions to earth, so that they could be duplicated. The Doctor and his companions duplicates will then be sent to Gallifrey to assassinate the high council of the Time Lords, paving the way for a Dalek invasion of Gallifrey.

Turlough meanwhile meets up with the few survivors of the prison ship who try and activate the ships self destruct device to eliminate Davros, but Lytton finds them and slaughters the survivors, with only one, Mercer, escaping with Turlough.

Laird attempts to stall the Dalek duplicates long enough for Teegan to escape, but unfortunately she is captured outside by the Daleks duplicate police officers.

Laird is then killed by the Dalek soldiers when she attempts to flee and Teegan is sent to the Dalek ship, but fortunately Teegan is found by Turlough and Mercer first.

The Doctor meanwhile though almost killed in the slow, torturous process of creating his duplicate is able to escape thanks to Stein, who is able to break free of the Daleks mind control.

The Doctor, Stein, Teegan, Mercer and Turlough reunite and escape to the TARDIS which the Daleks had brought on board.

There the Doctor decides that he must kill Davros as Davros is the only chance the Daleks have of surviving the Movellan virus.

Mercer and Stein who both want revenge agree to help the Doctor, whilst Teegan and Turlough are sent back to earth in the TARDIS.

Davros meanwhile using a mind control device, has taken control of several of the Daleks human servants and two Dalek drones. He plans to use the Movellan virus to exterminate the Daleks who he has realised will never follow him, and then create a new race of Daleks loyal to him.

When the Doctor arrives in his cell he attempts to shoot Davros. Davros attempts to weasel out of it at first, but when he realises that the Doctor doesn’t have it in him to commit cold blooded murder, he starts to taunt him.

The Doctor, Mercer and Stein are distracted by a group of Lytton’s men who arrive. In the fight Mercer is killed, and Davros seals them all out. Stein meanwhile flees, fearing that the Dalek control is taking him over again.

Back on earth Davros’ two Daleks arrive along with his men to try and capture the Doctors TARDIS. The Dalek’s duplicate soldiers attempt to kill them, but the two Daleks slaughter all of the soldiers. The Daleks then dispatch Lytton and his men to deal with them, but once again Davros’ Daleks exterminate them (except for Lytton who feigns death in the battle to escape.)

A squad of Daleks arrive and begin to fight with Davros’ Daleks and human servants, but the Doctor who arrives back through the corridor kills all of the Daleks using a sample of the Movellan virus. During the fighting Lytton attempts to shoot the Doctor a few times, before escaping into the streets in disguise as a policeman.

As both groups of Daleks and all of Lytton’s men are killed, back on the station Davros attempts to leave, but he is cornered by two Daleks who knowing that he is planning to betray him, try to shoot him.

However the Movellan virus that Davros unleashed on the base kills them. Davros declares that the Daleks are dead, long live the new Daleks, but as he attempts to leave the Movellan virus begins to affect him. With his DNA it seems being similar enough to a Dalek for the virus to work, Davros screams out in denial that he cannot die as the virus seemingly engulfs him.

Stein meanwhile having managed to fight off the conditioning again is able to activate the stations self destruct sequence just as the Daleks shoot him, and the prison ship is destroyed, seemingly taking Davros with it.

With the Daleks invasion plans foiled, the Doctor prepares to leave, but sadly his companion Teegan refuses to come with him. Having seen too many good people die, Teegan says she can’t go on anymore and tearfully runs out of the warehouse.

As she watches the TARDIS leave for the last time, her final words are that she will miss the Doctor.

Review

Resurrection of the Daleks is a minor classic in my opinion. Its not quite on the level of Genesis or Day, but its a brilliant story nonetheless.

Its true that Eric Saward perhaps crams it full of too many ideas. The Daleks plan to invade the earth and Gallifrey at the same time, free Davros, make him cure the Movellan plague, whilst Davros similarly plans to turn on the Daleks and wipe them out, and create his own race of Daleks!

Still for the most part Saward is able to weave all of these different strands together and have them all interact with one another into one coherent narrative, rather than just lie, completely unconnected.

Above all else Resurrection makes the Daleks seem like a proper threat again after their bumbling performance in Destiny.

Here the monsters get to exterminate dozens and dozens of people and once again just one Dalek is shown to be a legitimate threat, with a mere two of them slaughtering an entire heavily armed bomb disposal squad.

A lone Dalek should always be portrayed as being capable of taking out at least several humans, as after all a Dalek is meant to essentially be a mini tank.

What’s more effective about the high body count in this story is that the Daleks kill people who are of no threat or importance to them. In almost every other story, whilst the Daleks have shot plenty of unarmed people, its always been someone like a rebel, or a traitor to their cause like say the Controller.

In this story however we see helpless old men just get gunned down in the streets who have no idea who the Daleks even are. One particularly gruesome scene sees the Dalek controlled policemen shoot an old man in the distance after cornering Teegan.

Whilst some have accused these sequences of being gratuitous violence, I think they demonstrate how the Daleks view all life as their enemy brilliantly. As the 5th Doctor himself says, it doesn’t matter how you react, the Daleks will always see other life forms very existence as a threat.

I like the way this story also gives the Daleks a chance to be more manipulative too. The idea of the Daleks using duplicates of their enemies to slowly manipulate and crush them from within is a terrifying concept. For the first time there is really a sense of paranoia around the monsters. Now anyone you know could be one of their duplicates. I love the way that the black Dalek states that the Daleks no longer even need to invade anymore thanks to their duplicates.

Its sad that other than a passing mention in Into the Dalek, the idea of the Daleks duplicates was never picked up on in later stories. I honestly think there is a wealth of more interesting stories to be played with using the idea.

As for Davros, I think he fares better here than in Destiny. Terry Molloy is a better fit for the character than David Gooderson. Granted the script doesn’t give him as much to do as Revelation and later Big Finish audio’s would but he still puts in a great performance and plays well off of Peter Davison.

Just like Michael Wisher there are some wonderful big hysterical rants where Molloy gets to chew the scenery, but also some nice subtle moments in his performance such as when he tells the Daleks quietly that he is very difficult to kill. Its a brilliant call back to Genesis.

This story moves the Davros/Dalek relationship on quite well as we see how Davros begins to resent the Daleks. That’s twice they have betrayed him and so really he’d be a mug to not have a back up plan this time.

Its a brilliant irony the way this time the Daleks are the ones who underestimate Davros. They assume after Destiny that he will always be willing to return to his “children” and it never even occurs to them until its too late that Davros actually wants rid of them this time.

The scene where Davros murders the two Daleks with the virus and they scream and beg for mercy whilst he ruthlessly screams “YOUR LIVES ARE OVER” is a nice little reversal of the ending of Genesis of the Daleks, where Davros having underestimated the Daleks was begging them for mercy before they gunned him down.

This story also marks the real beginning of the power struggle between Davros and the Dalek Supreme which will become a major plot point in subsequent Dalek stories.

Davros’ relationship with the Doctor is also well developed in this story. I never really thought it before, but on a recent rewatch I think that Peter Davison’s Doctor plays brilliantly off of the Daleks and Davros.

The fact that he is so vulnerable and sensitive allows the Daleks and Davros unrelenting cruelty to seem more effective than it did with say Tom in Destiny who tended to laugh in the face of danger.

5 and Davros’ confrontation is one of my favourite moments. I love the way that Davros actually considers the Doctor not being able to shoot an unarmed man in cold blood to be a sign of weakness.

I feel you can also see quite a nice build up to the Sixth Doctor in this story too. Here the 5th Doctor’s mercy causes Davros to escape and he instantly regrets it. He knows that Davros will cause more death, so for his next regeneration he decides to adopt a more ruthless persona.

Teegan’s departure is one of the most moving as well as one of the most bleak in the shows history. She isn’t killed off like Adric, but she is still left emotionally broken by the horrors that she has witnessed. Its also possibly the only time that the Doctor and a companion end things on bad terms.

The Doctor is never happy to see his companions go, but at the very least he can be happy for them. Even with Rose, he knows she is going on to a happy life in the other universe.

With Teegan however in their final scene together, the Doctor chases after her telling her that their relationship can’t end on this note, only for her to ignore him.

Its a very bold way to end any companions tenure, never mind one of the longest serving in the shows history.

Aside from its importance in the shows history, Resurrection of the Daleks stands up as a great piece of tv in its own right too.

Its brilliantly directed, the production values are of a very high quality, the sets are well designed, and whilst Sawards many different story strands at times might make the show seem a bit overly complicated, at the same time they also make sure there is never something not going on.

To be honest I’ve always thought that Resurrection of the Daleks was a great story to introduce someone to Doctor Who with. Its fast paced, its special effects are not embarrassing at all, the acting from all the leads is brilliant, the Daleks are vicious and scary, the music is subtle and effective, and its a very dark story.

It instantly betrays a lot of the negative myths that developed about Doctor Who being a silly, slow, series with dreadful effects.

Overall whilst not one of the top 5 Dalek stories, I’d still say that Resurrection is a classic and criminally underrated.

Notes and Trivia

  • Attack of the Cybermen, made the following year is a sequel of sorts to this story. It follows Lytton who was left stranded on earth at the end of this adventure. Lytton is portrayed more sympathetically in Attack than in Resurrection. He claims that he only worked for the Daleks because he had no choice. It should be mentioned that whilst Lytton had no problem with killing people on the Daleks orders, the black Dalek did still consider him untrustworthy and eventually ordered him killed. Lytton later attempts to help the Cryons save humanity from the Cybermen in Attack. Though he is being paid to help the Cyrons, Lytton nevertheless does still genuinely help humanity and the Doctor at the expense of his own life. When the Cybermen capture him, they promise to let him go if he betrays the Cryons whereabouts (which would also doom humanity), but Lytton refuses and not only withstands torture, but also cyber conversion too. His final act is a futile attempt to fight off the Cyber controller to save the Doctors life. All of this causes the Doctor to believe that he may have misjudged Lytton at the end of Attack of the Cybermen.
  • One of the Dalek voice actors for this story, Brian Miller is the husband of Elisabeth Sladen who played Sarah Jane Smith.
  • This story marks the first time that the Daleks are shown to take the fight to the Time Lords. It is regarded as one of the first strikes of the Time War in this respect.
  • A Movellan makes a tiny cameo at the start of the episode as one of the prisoners fleeing down the street who is killed by the Dalek’s duplicates. He is not identified on screen as a Movellan however, but this apparently was the original intention, and there is nothing to suggest that he is not a Movellan.
  • This story marks the first appearance of a black Dalek on tv since The Daleks Masterplan.
  • John Nathan Turner, Doctor Who’s longest running producer contributed a short interview to the DVD release of this story. Sadly it ended up being his only contribution to the DVD range as he passed away just a few months later.
  • This story marks the 8th time the Daleks try and invade the earth. In The Dalek Invasion of Earth and Day of the Daleks they invade and conquer the earth, whilst in Frontier in Space/Planet of the Daleks, Death to the Daleks, The Evil of the Daleks, and the Daleks Master Plan, they plan to destroy humanity through other means, such as a space plague, provoking a war etc.
  • When the Daleks are draining the Doctors mind, archive footage of all of the Doctors companions and previous incarnations appear except for Leela. Ian Levine, the shows continuity adviser admitted this was an oversight on his part.

 

 

Destiny of the Daleks Review

Terry Nations final contribution to the series. Destiny of the Daleks was also the only Dalek story in a span of 8 years.

Destiny of the Daleks is also notable for introducing one of the Daleks most dangerous adversaries, the Movellans.

Plot

The Doctor and a newly regenerated Romana arrive on a mysterious dead planet.

There they discover a work camp made up from different species across the universe. As they explore the ruins of an old building the Doctor is accidentally buried under rubble.

Romana goes to try and get help for him, but whilst she is away the Doctor is freed by a group of humanoids who call themselves Movellans. The Movellans take the Doctor back to their ship for his safety and tell him that the planet they are on is called Skaro, and they are here on a very important mission.

Romana meanwhile stumbles down a shaft where she is ambushed and captured by a squad of Daleks.

The Daleks interrogate Romana and after discovering that she knows nothing about the Daleks, they decide to send her to work in a mine, telling her that its all humanoids like her are good for.

Romana sees the brutal treatment the Daleks inflict on their prisoners first hand, but she is able to escape by faking her death before she reunites with the Doctor and the Movellans.

The Doctor, Romana and the Movellans discover that the Daleks are mining to below the old building where Romana was captured. The Doctor recognises the building as the remains of the Kaled bunker.

The Doctor, Romana, and the Movellans are able to make their way to the bottom of the old bunker before the Daleks where they discover what the Daleks have been looking for. Davros!

Davros despite being shot at by the Daleks has survived. His life support machine placed him into a state of suspended animation whilst it slowly regenerated his organs. Now after several centuries Davros is alive again.

Davros demands that the Doctor take him to the Daleks, boasting about how he will lead them to ultimate victory. The Doctor however reminds Davros that the monsters shot at him and left him for dead centuries ago, and begins to wonder what they could possibly want from him again.

The Daleks manage to corner Davros and the Doctor. The Doctor threatens to blow himself and Davros up unless they flee, but the Daleks begin to slaughter their own slaves in response.

The Doctor is forced to hand Davros over to the Daleks, but only on the condition that the slaves are freed, which the Daleks reluctantly agree to.

Back in the company of his creations, Davros (as well as the Doctor) discovers the real reason they have returned to their creator after so long.

The Movellans are a race of ruthless cyborgs, no better than the Daleks themselves. They have been fighting the Daleks in a war for many years, but neither side is able to triumph over the other, as they both rely on logic. Every time the Dalek battle computer attempts to launch an attack, the Movellan battle computer figures out a way to block it, and vice versa.

The Daleks hope that Davros who created them can help the monsters overcome this problem and destroy the Movellans. The Movellans meanwhile capture the Doctor and Romana and hope that the Doctor can break the stalemate for them. The Doctor however with the aid of the freed Dalek slaves is able slaughter the Movellan squad, whilst Romana stops the Movellans from detonating a weapon that would have destroyed Skaro.

Davros meanwhile grows paranoid and sends a Dalek squad of suicide bombers to the Movellan spaceship, whilst one Dalek guards him.

The Doctor however makes his way to the Daleks base and kills the Dalek guarding Davros, before detonating the bombs around the Daleks before they reach the ship, wiping them all out.

The freed Dalek slaves then leave for earth in the Movellan ship with Davros in tow. Davros is to be tried back on earth for his crimes against all of sentient life in creating the Daleks, whilst the Doctor and Romana depart the planet in the TARDIS.

Review

Destiny of the Daleks is definitely among the weakest of the 70s Dalek stories. Its not a bad story by any means, but its a shame that Terry Nation’s final script for the series is not one of his all time best.

To be fair I don’t think this is down to Terry Nation himself, rather Douglas Adams who it is known performed a major rewrite of the story.

Adams humour though great in other stories like City of Death, is a horrible fit for the Daleks. He has them bumble around, and points out their biggest weakness, their then inability to get up stairs (something which apparently greatly angered Nation.)

Worst of all however the Doctor doesn’t even seem remotely scared of the Daleks or Davros for that matter. Here he outright mocks them as idiots “you’re misquoting Napoleon” and generally disposes of them both in easy, almost flippant ways.

Not exactly a career high point.

Whenever the Doctor goes up against Davros and the Daleks, he should not only be scared, but also repulsed at how twisted their beliefs are.

You don’t really get that here. Instead as you can see from the above clip it more just feels like the Doctor views them as doofuses that he’s bored of having to deal with.

Its ironic in a way as in Classic Who, this is the only Davros story where he and the Doctor share more than one scene together, yet its the only one to contain no memorable showdowns between the two.

Still in spite of these faults Destiny of the Daleks does have a brilliant story and actually adds a lot to the Dalek and Davros saga in the long run.

Davros’ return isn’t that well handled. Its a bit silly that his life support machine kept him in stasis all of this time, but the reason the Daleks are looking for him is brilliant.

Also the relationship between Davros and the Daleks is quite interesting in this story. Here we discover that the Daleks did not intend to kill Davros, and have known he was alive all this time. Why else would they be searching if they thought he was dead?

Of course this begs the question of why didn’t they kill him, to which there is only one answer. The monsters obviously deep down do have some affection for Davros as he is the closest thing they have to a father.

Of course it could never manifest itself as genuine affection as the Daleks are incapable of that, but at the very least they could never truly kill him (which is pretty huge for a Dalek whose sole reason for existing is to you know kill all lesser life forms.)

At the same time Davros, even though he knows they will never truly accept him, can’t help but always return to them, as again they are the closest thing he has to children.

I love the way that Davros at first is delusional to believe that the Daleks have returned to him simply because they have realised that he should lead them.

When the Daleks however reveal that its just to help them with their latest problem, after which they will then most likely abandon him again, Davros is genuinely heartbroken.

We can also see the power struggle begin here with Davros reacting in rage and disgust at the idea of a Supreme Dalek.

Whilst the story might not always handle the Doctors relationship with the Daleks that well, at the very least the interactions between Davros and the Daleks is very interesting, and it sets the stage for future stories where we will see Davros and the Supreme Dalek fight for control over the monsters, as well as further examples of the twisted, father/son relationship between the Daleks and Davros.

The Daleks also are still menacing in certain moments too such as in the scenes during the Dalek camps.

We get the idea that the Daleks are a truly intergalactic threat the way that there are so many species from all over the universe trapped in their camps.

We are also given a wonderful little insight into the monsters psychology the way that they delight in persecuting humanoids because they were once humanoids themselves.

On the one hand they can’t stand being reminded that they were once in their minds, “inferior creatures”, but on the other perhaps the Daleks deep down are jealous of humanoids. After all they were once free to think for themselves, free to interact with the world around them and experience emotions that weren’t just bitterness and hatred.

Now however they spend their entire lives locked in a cage, ironically following the path set out for them by a supposedly inferior being, Davros. Perhaps deep down, there is a tiny little grain of the Daleks that is still self aware and hates being reminded of all that it has lost when it looks at a humanoid life form.

The Movellans, the Daleks sworn enemies are also a wonderful addition to the series. In a way they are quite good counterparts to the Thals, as both are humanoid rivals to the Daleks who are very beautiful, but with the Movellans, they turn it on its head by making them out to be evil themselves.

I’ve always thought it would be interesting to have the Doctor work alongside a race who were evil to stop the Daleks. After all the Daleks threaten to exterminate all other life forms in the universe, so you don’t have to be a good guy to be their enemy.

We had to ally ourselves with Stalin, one of the biggest mass murderers in human history to stop the Nazis, as ultimately the Nazis threatened everybody.

Thus the Doctors allies against the Daleks shouldn’t always be whiter than white Thals, or even just human resistance fighters who are willing to do whatever it takes. There should be a story where the Doctor has to work alongside aliens who in any other adventure would be the villains, but who are still threatened by the Daleks plans, as they are a danger to all life forms.

Sadly Destiny is the only story that plays around with that idea for a bit, as from the start the Doctor suspects the Movellans aren’t as rosey as they appear to be, but they are still not as bad as the Daleks and so the Doctor has to work alongside them for the time being.

Its a shame that we never got to see the Movellans again, barring a tiny cameo in the Pilot. The Daleks having a race of mechanical rivals is a brilliant concept, and one that worked well in the 60s with the Mechanoids too.

Another big addition to this story is the introduction of Lalla Ward as Romana. Her regeneration scene is utterly ludicrous, though its not a millionth as bad as the shit New Who has done to regeneration over the years.

Its not like they made out that she was actually dying, and thus destroyed the entire point of regeneration, and made the new actress feel about as welcome as a foot fungus like RTD did with Tennant and Smith. Its also not like they made out she can grow a new head either, or had her regeneration nuke a Dalek fleet, and at least they didn’t cast someone like Wilfred Bramble as Romana 2 for some cheap virtue signalling, headline grabbing bullshit either.

The worst you can accuse Adams of here is being a bit silly.

Still daft opening aside, Lalla Ward gets a brilliant introduction. She brings a sensitive vulnerability to the part such as when she is being terrorised by the Daleks, yet she also gets plenty to do on her own as well. She escapes the Dalek camps through her own guile and intelligence, and she later stops Skaro from being destroyed on her own, by literally kicking a Movellan to pieces.

Her and Tom’s chemistry is also brilliant too. She can match Tom’s humour and quick wit perfectly, but there is also a really obvious bond of affection between them that’s stronger than that between the Doctor and most of his companions.

A favourite moment of mine is when the Doctor discovers Romana’s grave and he is so grief stricken that he starts to pull it apart. He has no reason to think that Romana wasn’t killed by the Daleks at that point, but he just can’t accept that she is gone so he starts literally tearing the grave to bits. His joy at finding out she survived is also really sweet too.

Overall Destiny of the Daleks is a strong story that serves as a good introduction for one of the best companions in the shows history, and moves along the Davros and Daleks story arc nicely, whilst setting things up for future stories with the villains at the same time.

Its only let down by the injection of some of Addams humour into the script, which just isn’t a good fit for the atmosphere Nation is clearly trying to build, and worse undermines the Daleks and Davros as villains at certain points.

Some of the more shoddy production values let the story down too. I don’t actually mind the Daleks looking a bit battered. After all they are meant to be in the middle of a war. If anything it makes more sense than to always have them look so polished. With Davros however he just looked a bit crap. David Gooderson who plays the villain is also nowhere near as strong as Michael Wisher, though he does a fine job overall and at least tries to do something new with the part.

Wisher portrayed Davros as a power mad sociopath, whilst Gooderson explores Davros’ relationship with his creations more, showing how Davros is hurt on a personal level by their rejection of him, as well as how he is genuinely grief stricken when he is unable to help them at the end, for their sake, and not just his own.

Terry Molloy and Julian Bleach would later incorporate the fanaticism of Wishers portrayal, and the more complicated relationship between Davros and the Daleks from Gooderson’s into their portrayals.

Overall Destiny of the Daleks manages to rise above its faults however to be an entertaining story at the least, and an important one in the long history of Doctor Who.

Trivia

  • This was Terry Nation’s final contribution to Doctor Who. Overall he wrote more episodes of the series than any other writer, save for Robert Holmes. Nation also created two more iconic and successful sci fi series, The Survivors and Blake’s 7. In the later years of his life, Nation tried to revive Doctor Who along with Gerry Davies, the co creator of the Cybermen, and the creator of regeneration. Nation and Davies pitch for the show was a sequel to the original series, and their choice for the Doctor was Tim Curry. Sadly however the BBC rejected their pitch as they wanted to sell the series to America at that point. Nation passed away in 1997 in his home in Los Angeles. His work has continued to inspire such high profile figures as Joseph Michael Strayzcinski and Dennis Potter, and there was even a blue plaque placed outside his former home in Cardiff in 2013.
  • Graham Williams said of the decision to bring the Daleks back that “its something that should never work, but for some reason it always does.”
  • Prior to the broadcast of this story (which was the first in season 17) there was a trailer where the Doctor is told by a mysterious voice that he will soon encounter a race known as the Daleks. The Doctor joking responds that he has never heard of the Daleks, before reacting seriously to the warning.
  • Though Terry Nation would never write for the show again, he did still influence the next three Dalek stories to an extent by demanding that Davros be included in them all.
  • The last time Skaro is visited by the Doctor in the classic era.
  • This is the last appearance of the Daleks in 4 years, though they do make a cameo in The Five Doctors in the meantime.

Genesis of the Daleks Review

The Fourth Doctors first battle with his archenemies. Genesis of the Daleks also marked the introduction of their creator Davros who would go on to be a staple of Classic era Dalek stories from this point on.

Long regarded as one of the greatest Doctor Who stories ever made. Genesis of the Daleks has been repeated many times since its transmission and earned a place in popular culture like few other stories.

Plot

The Doctor, Sarah and Harry are abducted by the Time Lords whilst trying to return to the Nerva Beacon.

A Time Lord agent tells the Doctor that they have been taken to Skaro the home planet of the Daleks. Apparently at some point in the future the Daleks will destroy all other life forms in creation, having risen to a level of power where not even the Time Lords can stand against them.

The Time Lords tell the Doctor that he must do one of the following. Erase them from history altogether. Change their development so that they become less aggressive creatures. Or slow down their development at least so that other races are given enough time to catch up to them.

The Doctor agrees to do this mission for the Time Lords and the agent before departing, hands him a Time Ring which will allow him to reunite with the TARDIS once the mission is over.

The Doctor, Sarah and Harry discover that they have been teleported in the middle of a war zone. With the soldiers using a mix mash of weaponry from different times. Along the way the Doctor and Harry are separated from Sarah in a gas attack.

The Doctor and Harry are able to make their way to a city, where they encounter the native humanoid life forms, the Kaleds.

The Kaleds reveal the history of Skaro at this point to the Doctor. A war has been raging between two humanoid civilisations, the Kaleds and the Thals for 1000 years. All cities and civilisations have been destroyed except for one from each race.

The use of nuclear and atomic weapons has slowly over the centuries destroyed the surface of Skaro, turning it into an irradiated wasteland. Both the Kaleds and the Thals have begun to slowly mutate. Whilst the mutants, disparagingly referred to as Mutos are cast out into the wilderness to die. More and more Mutos are born every generation on both sides. Davros meanwhile a crippled and brilliant scientist is the head of the Kaled scientific elite.

The Doctor and Harry are taken to the Kaled bunker, whilst Sarah is abducted by a group of Mutos. The Mutos want to kill Sarah, but one of them named Sevrin saves her. Sadly however Sarah and Sevrin are later captured by the Thals who force them to work on their rocket.

The Thals are building a rocket to launch at the Kaled city which they believe will finally exterminate their enemies.

Meanwhile in the Kaled bunker, the Doctor discovers that Davros is creating something far worse. Davros has discovered that the Kaleds are all destined to mutate more and more over the next few generations. Davros is eager to find out what their final mutated form will be, and so he has taken living Kaled cells and subjected them to the same radiation that is polluting the air of skaro.

Davros has discovered that the Kaleds are destined to mutate into a hideous, amorphous blob like creature. After creating several of these Kaled mutants, Davros creates robotic casings to house them.

However he also tampers with the Kaled mutants minds. He removes all emotions that he considers weak such as love, compassion and pity from their minds, but and programmes a strong aggression towards all life forms that are different to them as well.

Davros believes that one race must dominate the others in order to survive, and so he wants to make sure that this new race of Kaleds will treat all other life forms as their enemies.

Davros christens his new creation a Dalek. Several of the Kaled scientists who are working on the project grow scared that what Davros is creating is evil. One of these scientists named Ronson, helps the Doctor and Harry to escape to the city of the Kaleds to warn them about what Davros is creating.

The Kaled government tells Davros that they will investigate and though Davros agrees, he decides to betray them to the Thals, declaring that they have signed the death warrant for the whole Kaled people.

Davros gives the Thals the secrets they need to breach the Kaleds protective dome. Despite the power of the Thals rocket, it will not even scratch the dome and so Davros gives them a chemical that will dissolve it.

That Thals are initially quite skeptical as to why Davros is helping them to exterminate his own people, but Davros, and his vile assistant Nyder claim that they want this war to end.

The Doctor and Harry meanwhile who had arrived in the Thal city to try and help Sarah, overhear Davros’ plans. The Doctor tries to sabotage the rocket, whilst Sarah and Harry try to make their way back to the city and warn the Kaleds.

Sadly however they all fail and the Thals exterminate the Kaled city. Davros subsequently frames Ronson for betraying the Kaleds to the Thals and has the Daleks exterminate him.

Davros then sends a squad of Daleks to the Thal city where they begin exterminating them.

The Doctor is able to help a few Thals escape and tells them to work with the Mutos as its their only chance. Most of the Thals are exterminated by the Daleks in the city.

The Doctor, Sarah and Harry are then captured by Davros and Nyder when they try to re-enter the bunker. Davros, having read Ronson’s interrogation, learns that the Doctor is from the future.

The Doctor pleads with Davros to stop the development of the Daleks by telling him of the horrors his creations will commit. When the Doctor lets it slip that the monsters will lose in the future, Davros demands to know how and proceeds to torture Sarah and Harry to make him talk.

Meanwhile in the Kaled bunker more scientists begin to question Davros, including Gharman. They attempt to organise a rebellion against Davros, and the Doctor at one point is able to wire the Daleks incubation chamber up to explosives.

He sadly however gives up a golden opportunity to exterminate the monsters. He wonders if he has the right to kill them, and that if perhaps, for all their evil some things might be better with them, as various races will unite in mutual fear of them.

Sadly Gharman’s rebellion is crush by the Daleks. Davros only allowed it to carry on to discover which of the Kaled scientists were truly loyal to him. 

The Doctor however working with the Thals and Muto survivors is able to blow up the corridor leading to the Kaled bunker, and the Daleks and Davros are sealed in under thousands of tons of rubble.

The Doctor says that it will take them thousands of years to escape, and to recover the work that has been destroyed. This will be enough to prevent the Time Lords vision of the future from coming to pass by giving other races enough time to catch up to them.

Trapped in the bunker together, the Daleks soon turn on Davros and begin exterminating the Kaled scientists who remained loyal to him, including Nyder.

Davros pleads with the Daleks, but they refuse to listen declaring themselves to be the masters. Davros realises the horror of what he has created just as the creatures turn on and exterminate him too. The leader of the Daleks then declares that though they have been entombed, they will eventually escape and take their rightful place as the supreme power of the universe.

As the Thals and Mutos leave together, the Doctor, Sarah and Harry leave Skaro using the time ring. As they vanish through the vortex the Doctor is confident that they have done the right thing.

Review

Genesis of the Daleks is one of the most highly regarded Doctor Who stories and its not hard to see why.

Its not perfect of course, as no story is. There are some moments where the production values let it down such as the giant clam scene, but overall Genesis much like the first Dalek story,  is an exciting, action packed boys own adventure on the surface, with a lot of depth underneath.

Genesis returns the Daleks to being frightening allegories for the Nazis, as well as fascism and racism in general.

The few stories before Genesis like Death to the Daleks and Day of the Daleks, though having done some interesting things with the monsters, had still in some ways reduced the Daleks to being more generic invaders.

With Genesis however the monsters are finally given a fuhrer figure in Davros.

Genesis shows us how evil, twisted men like Davros are able to seize power not just through their own cunning and guile, but rather through the inaction of those around them.

The Kaleds have so many golden opportunity’s to stop Davros but they never take them. The Kaled government give him time to plot against them when they should have just shut the bunker down right away, whilst Gharman and the other rebellious Kaled scientists similarly rather than just imprison Davros, play right into his hands and decide to hold a vote to see who should lead them.

No one except for the Doctor is aware of just what Davros is capable of until its too late.

At the same time we also see how Davros is able to play on other people’s weaknesses to his own advantage to such as the Thals who as he puts it, are so hungry for victory that they don’t care how untrustworthy Davros obviously is.

Davros can not only spot the weaknesses in others, but there is also no low that he won’t sink to either and that’s the real reason he wins. His enemies are simply not as dirty and underhanded as he is. They are reasonable, which is something he sees as cowardice.

Everything about Davros is perfect for this story. His characterisation is both complex and frightening.

To start with it merely appears that Davros is doing all he can to ensure the survival of his people, the Kaleds. However it soon becomes obvious that he is actually intending to reshape his entire race in his own image. Davros ironically despite being unable to even defend himself, despises those he considers weak, which includes even his own people the Kaleds.

The Daleks are what Davros likes to think he is. Strong, ruthless, and never willing to compromise like the supposed weak and pitiful Kaleds, such as Gharman who he derides as “someone who’ll listen to a thousand view points and try and satisfy them all.” Or even the Doctor who Davros sneers at for having compassion for his friends which he exploits when torturing them.

Its a brilliant irony at the end of the story when Davros discovers that as wretched, selfish and ruthless as he is, ironically even he is capable of some compassion and mercy after all. When the Daleks who are completely devoid of any pity turn on his most loyal followers, Davros ends up pleading with them, just as the Doctor did for Sarah and Harry’s lives earlier.

Davros learns in this moment that compassion isn’t a weakness, as ironically the Daleks are slaughtering people who could help them, even their own creator, because they are incapable of anything else. Davros finally realises just what a monster he has created in his final moments. Nothing has ever existed like the Daleks before. Even the most evil person like Davros can still show mercy to people who are loyal to him.

In this respect I can understand why some fans and critics were annoyed at Davros being brought back. His ending here is just so perfect, when he finally realises that his creations are evil, and actually tries to destroy them himself. Also I love the way the Daleks make no big deal of killing Davros, their creator, as they see him in exactly the same way as they would a lowly Thal soldier. Both of them are just other life forms and therefore the enemy.

Furthermore there is also a fantastic irony the way that Davros is forgotten. The Doctor despite being the archenemy of the Daleks had never even heard of him. The Daleks were obviously intended by Davros as being a way for him to live forever. Monsters created in his image who would terrorise the cosmos and make his name one that people would curse and fear for all eternity.

However ironically he won’t even be a footnote in the history of the universe as previous Dalek stories showed. The Daleks themselves will make sure no one remembers him as they don’t want people to know that they were created by a lesser creature.

Sadly later Dalek stories will undo all of this and simply have Davros going back to try and rule the Daleks, completely ignoring his development at the end of this story.

I do love the later Davros stories, and I think the writers did a good job in developing him from there, but I am at least sympathetic to the “Davros should never have been brought back” argument as his ending is just so stunning in Genesis. In fact its my favourite moment in any story.

Another reason Davros is so spectacular in this story is Michael Wishers performance, which is easily among the top 5 in the entire history of Doctor Who.

Wisher captures all of the fanatical, bitter qualities of the villain, as well as his craven cowardice too such as in his final moments with the Daleks.

There are moments where Wisher is eerily calm such as when he disturbingly talks of dissecting Gharman’s brain, then there are the moments where he screams so hysterically he almost sounds like one of his creations, such as during his brutal torture of Sarah and Harry.

All the other actors who would go on to play Davros after such as Terry Molloy and Julian Bleach would attempt to emulate this aspect of Wishers performance, and whilst they were both very good, I don’t think anyone ever managed it as well as Michael.

Some fans and critics have argued that Davros’ appearance here negatively impacts the Daleks who are pushed to the background. Personally however, whilst this does happen in later Davros stories, I definitely don’t think that’s the case in Genesis.

To start with we are taken to the very depths of the Daleks evil in this adventure to a far greater extent. Here we see how even the most evil humanoid like Davros, a man who has carried out a double genocide is shocked at how ruthless they can be.

Also something which is often overlooked in reviews of this story is how formidable the monsters are too. A mere 20 Daleks exterminate an entire city of Thals with no effort whatsoever.

Director David Maloney also shoots them in such a way where they seem large and foreboding, such as when the Thals and Mutos cower in the Trenches as they slowly glide by.

The Dalek voices in this story are my favourites as well. Roy Skelton, by this stage a long standing Dalek voice veteran gives them the perfect, screeching , rasping voices.

Far from seeming like nothing compared to Davros, at the end when the Daleks make him beg for the lives of his scientists and exterminate him, they’ve never seemed more evil and powerful. I love the Daleks final speech. Roy Skelton’s delivery is absolutely perfect as the Dalek’s leader spews its hatred and anger towards the rest of the universe.

This story also elevates the Daleks to being a threat to the Time Lords too. Though the Time Lords had sent the Doctor on a mission to deal with them before in Frontier in Space, here its different.

In Genesis the Time Lords are absolutely terrified of the Daleks after having seen a future where they are able to triumph over the Time Lords. They are actually willing to break their most important law and change all of history to stop the Daleks!

Understandably some people felt that this story contradicted the first Dalek story which gave a brief overview of the Daleks origins that were different to this story.

Personally however I don’t see it as that big a contradiction as after all in the Daleks, all we had were a few scant historical records, where as Genesis gives us a first hand account.

Furthermore Genesis also explains why the Daleks behave the way have done in every previous story to this brilliantly. Prior to this adventure every single Dalek that we had ever seen acted in exactly the same way. From the lowliest drone to the Emperor, they were all devoted to their cause of exterminating all other life forms in the universe. There were no Daleks who were merciful, but there were also no Daleks that even had ambitions and desires of their own.

They all thought exactly the same, despite being organic life forms. Here however we find out why. Davros had conditioned their minds to all think exactly the same, and all be devoted to exterminating other life forms.

This revelation not only explains why the act the way they do, but it opens up a whole new aspect to the Daleks personalities.

Now we know there can never be a good Dalek. Before we had just assumed that the Daleks all think the way they do because they come from a war like culture, like say the Klingons in Star Trek.

Here however we see that they are all conditioned to be ruthless, and can never change how they are.

Whilst it makes them far more terrifying, it also makes them somewhat more sympathetic ironically. The Daleks unlike say the Master, or even the Cybermen who willingly chose to convert themselves, have never had a choice in what they were. They did once, when they were Kaleds, but sadly Davros took that from them and has trapped them in this hideous state forever. There will never be a Dalek that thinks what they are doing is evil and tries to free the rest of its people, and worse they will never stop trying to conquer as they literally have no other desires or feelings, other than a lust for conquest.

Genesis really is what establishes the Daleks as the Doctors most dangerous and evil adversaries more than any other story, as it shows them not only becoming the biggest threat to the Time Lords (as well as the rest of the universe in the future), but also finally establishes once and for all that the Daleks can never be anything but evil conquerors.

Aside from Michael Wisher the other stand out performance in this story is Tom Baker.

Its a very subdued, and thoughtful performance. That’s not to say that there aren’t moments of Tom’s brilliant trademark humour, such as when he clobbers the two Thal guards, but for the most part his Doctor is a man with a very heavy burden.

Its not just as simple as blowing up the Daleks this time. The Doctor will be wiping them from history and so he has to actually think about what that means. Not only will he be committing genocide, but who knows what might change by erasing the Daleks?

For all the Doctor knows without the Daleks planets like say the Earth and Draconia may wipe each other out in a war, where as thanks to the Daleks they become united against them. Similarly perhaps the challenge of the Daleks will cause certain species to up their game and make great advances which benefit them in all kinds of ways, which they wouldn’t have done otherwise.

Its a brilliant twist in that to start with it seems like a more straight forward adventure of “destroy the evil Daleks and save the universe”, but ultimately when its crunch time, the Doctor discovers that there are no easy ways out of this situation, and the story doesn’t necessarily say that he has done the right thing either. Sarah even says that she believes they have failed at the end. Furthermore later stories will show the Doctor still struggle with the decision, and indeed over 40 years later, fans on message boards, and in reviews are still torn over whether or not the Doctor should have destroyed them.

It shows you how Nation could inject nuance into his scripts, as even when dealing with whether or not the Doctor should destroy the Daleks, his archenemies and the most dangerous creatures in the universe. He was still able to raise points, and show different sides to the dilemma to an extent that it’s still kept people talking decades on.

The Doctor’s interactions with Davros are also brilliant too. I love the way the Doctor is able to see exactly the type of person Davros is. Davros claims that the Daleks will be a power for good, as when they rule over all other life forms they will do so benevolently.

The Doctor however can see that a weak, pathetic little man like Davros just wants to use the monsters to tear everything down because it makes him feel strong.

Really there is very little to fault with Genesis. Again other than a few production gaffe’s everything about the adventure works.

It has brilliant performances, its wonderfully directed, its well paced. Even at 6 episodes it doesn’t drag, and contains some of the best cliffhangers in the shows history, such as Davros’ torture of Sarah and Harry, and the Dalek mutant choking the 4th Doctor.

Overall Genesis is not only a fantastic Doctor Who story, but one of the best pieces of British television ever made.

Trivia

  • This was the last Dalek story for 4 years. Though their return in Day of the Daleks had led to a mini revival in Dalekmania (which was still going strong during this story) and all of their subsequent appearances had been big ratings hits. Script editor Robert Holmes hated the Daleks and decided to retire them after this adventure. Fans and viewers apparently sent complaints to the BBC next year as they had gotten used to having a Dalek story every year.
  • Terry Nation who wrote this adventure said it was his favourite out of all the stories he wrote for the series.
  • David Tennant has named this as his favourite story, and the story that made him a Doctor Who fan.
  • Philip Hinchcliff and Terrance Dicks said that very little was changed from Terry Nation’s first draft for this story, which was unusual. Though some scenes from Nation’s original script were edited due to budget reasons (such as the Time Lord meeting the Doctor in a garden on Gallifrey.) Ultimately it remained mostly true to Nations original script. Hinchliff later joked that Terry’s first drafts were often his final drafts as they rarely needed to work on them.
  • This story follows on directly from the Sontaran Experiment (which followed on from the Ark in Space) and leads directly on to Revenge of the Cybermen, which in turn leads directly on to Terror of the Zygons.

 

Death to the Daleks Review

The Third Doctors final Dalek story. Death to the Daleks cast the monsters in a somewhat more unusual position of making them more vulnerable.

Plot

The Doctor decides to take Sarah Jane Smith to the planet Florana. Along the way however the TARDIS becomes stranded on a desert planet where the TARDIS is drained of power. 

As they explore, the Doctor and Sarah become separated. Sarah soon finds a large and beautiful city in the distance. The Doctor and Sarah however become separated and both are attacked by cloaked monsters. Sarah is taken by to their base, an underground cave system where they tell her that she is to be sacrificed for gazing upon their god (the city.)

The Doctor meanwhile is saved by a group of humans who take him back to their ship. They tell him that there is a space plague sweeping the galaxy that is killing millions.

The only known cure for it is parranium, which though rare around the rest of the universe, is as common as sand on this planet, Exxilon. Sadly however when the humans ship arrived it was drained of all power too just like the TARDIS.

The natives, the Exxilons are savage degenerates who worship the city. Having already killed some of the crew, the humans mission looks set to be a dismal failure.

Just then a second craft arrives on the planet. Thinking its a rescue ship the humans and the Doctor go to investigate. Unfortunately they soon discover that it is the Daleks!

The Daleks order that the Doctor and the humans be exterminated, but when they try to fire it is revealed that they are also affected by the same power drain, with their weapons being totally useless.

The Daleks and the humans regrettably form an alliance with one another. The Daleks lie to the Doctor and the humans that the same space plague is affecting them and that they are dying in millions.

In truth however the Daleks simply want to steal the parranium, destroy the surface of Exxilon to prevent anyone else from getting it, and then use it to hold humanity and the other species that are suffering to ransom. 

Along the way to the mining dome, the Daleks and the humans are attacked by a horde of Exxilons who kill one of the human party and one Dalek, by beating it to death.

All including the Doctor are captured. When the Doctor comes across the Exxilons torturing Sarah using their poison, the Doctor attacks their high priest, and he is sentenced to death as well. The leader of the Daleks meanwhile tries to bargain with the leader of the Exxilons for the Dalek and human party’s (but obviously not the Doctor and Sarah’s) freedom.

Back on their ship however the Daleks are able to replace their dead ray guns with machine guns which prove effective against the Exxilons. These Daleks slaughter their way through the Exxilons and round them (alongside their former human allies) up in labour camps to mine the parranium. 

The Daleks also attempt to exterminate the Doctor and Sarah, who escape through the cave system in the commotion. 

The Doctor and Sarah encounter a renegade group of Exxilons led by a man named Bellal.

Bellal after helping them escape the Daleks reveals the history of his planet. Originally Exxilon was one of the most advanced societies in the universe. They even visited other planets (such as the earth at an early point in its history.) 

Sadly their time came when they constructed a gigantic, sentient city. The city eventually turned on the Exxilons and nearly wiped their race out. 

The survivors split into two factions. One who worship the city as a god, and the other, Bellals group who want to destroy the city. 

The Doctor agrees to help Bellal make his way through the city to destroy its brain. The Daleks meanwhile have also realised that the city is the source of the power drain and so they not only send two humans to destroy the beacon, but two Daleks into the city as well.

The Doctor and Bellal make their way through the city’s traps and puzzles with the two Daleks behind them.

Along the way they find the corpses of previous Exxilons who failed the tests.

Sarah meanwhile along with a member of the human crew, Jill Tarrant is able to get the parranium off of the Daleks ship and onto the humans one, replacing the Daleks parranium with bags of sand.

The Doctor and Bellal make their way to the city’s brain. As the Doctor attempts to scramble it, the city creates two zombies to attack them. The zombies however are distracted when the two Daleks show up.

The Daleks machine guns have no effect on the zombies who beat the Daleks whilst the Doctor and Bellal escape. 

The Daleks bomb destroys the beacon and power is restored. Now at full strength, the Daleks reveal their true plans and state that they will launch a plague missile on Exxilon, rendering further landings on the planet impossible.

As they take off however, one of the humans named Galloway uses the Daleks own bomb to destroy their ship. 

The Doctor tells the two surviving humans that they need to get the parranium back to the colonies. As they prepare to leave however they notice the city of the Exxilons, as a result of the Doctors actions, dying. 

As it crumbles to pieces the city actually screams. Though the Exxilons are now free to rebuild their planet, the Doctor remarks that the City of the Exxilons was one of the 700 wonders of the universe, and that its a pity that now the universe only has 699 wonders.

Review

Death to the Daleks has always been one of my favourite stories. It demonstrates all of the strengths of Terry Nation as a writer.

We have a planet with a rich and detailed history, non stop action, morally grey characters, and wonderful, scary monsters.

Though its true that there are some of his old tropes here, such as a long dead city, and space plagues, its not done in a way that negatively impacts the story.

First and foremost I think Death to the Daleks is often overlooked (by everyone except for Nicholas Briggs) for the interesting way it portrays the Daleks.

In the previous Pertwee Dalek stories the monsters were not only portrayed as incredibly powerful, but also in a position of control too.

Here we see them unable to even defend themselves, and be forced to rely solely on their wits. Even when they do manage to replace their guns, then they are still vulnerable. as many of the monsters on Exillon are immune to bullets, such as the giant mechanical root that tears several Daleks to bits, and the zombies in the city that beat them to within an inch of their lives.

Whilst some critics have argued that this makes the Daleks seem weak, I don’t think so. The Daleks are shown to be extremely cunning as a result of the extra problems they have to overcome throughout this story.

For instance they are able to fix the power loss, not the humans. They not only construct weapons that are effective, but they are also able to pinpoint the source of the power drain and destroy it too.

Furthermore having the Daleks overcome all of the tests in the city reinforced to me at least how they are the Doctors equals in intelligence too, as the Doctor had been the only person that had managed to overcome them before.

The Daleks also manage to successfully dupe everyone about their real intentions until the end of the story too. Furthermore I like the way that the Daleks overall plan is not just a direct invasion. Its a very sneaky, underhand plan to steal the only cure for a lethal plague that is affecting the humans.

We haven’t seen the Daleks be portrayed as this manipulative and cunning since Power of the Daleks when the monsters were similarly put in a vulnerable position. In Power however they arguably had a bigger advantage as no one save the Doctor knew who they were.

Here however they are dealing with a group of humans who know exactly what they are capable of (including one who at first refuses to work with them after his father was killed by in the last Dalek war.) Furthermore the Exxilons are savages who want to kill them regardless, and so the Daleks are pushed to even greater extremes, but they still manage to overcome them.

The Doctors interactions with the Daleks are also quite fun in this story. Once again Pertwee works his real life dislike of the monsters into the script quite well with the Doctor not only taking a great delight in their helplessness, but also cheering a mechanical monster as it literally rips the Daleks to bits! “Yes sir palpable hit!”

Galloway, a member of the human crew takes up the position of the devious humanoid character that the Daleks work with in this adventure. Galloway’s a very interesting character overall. At first he just seems like a ruthless glory seeker. He has no regard for the safety of other members of the party, including the Doctor and Sarah, and worst of all is show to be willing to help murder innocent lives if it means he can get the parranium back to earth.

His crew mates don’t trust him at the best of times, including even their former commander who insists on his death bed that Galloway is not fit for command.

This coupled with the fact that he seems to work better with the Daleks make him seem like a villain, but ironically he ends up as the hero of the piece when he blows the Daleks (and himself) up just as they are about to launch their plague missile.

Galloway was just practical and devoted to his duty to get the parranium back to earth that he seemed ruthless to those around him. He viewed everyone’s lives as expendable, including his own for the greater good, and whilst that did lead him to do shady deals with the Daleks, ultimately he put his money where his mouth was and sacrificed himself to destroy the Daleks and saved countless lives in the process.

In a way Galloway is kind of like a precursor to Avon from Terry Nation’s later series Blake’s 7. Avon similarly could come across as a villain at times. He was not above hitting women, shooting people in the back, or even attempting to murder his friends like Vila. However his actor Paul Darrow never saw him as evil per se, more just practical to such a degree that he could appear as ruthless, and a lot of the time Avon often saved the day just like Galloway in spite of, or perhaps because of his ruthless actions.

Sadly aside from Galloway the rest of the human characters are a bit wet or bland. Still the Exxilons fortunately are fantastic creations.

Once again Terry Nation gives them a great detailed backstory, and fills their world full of strange creatures from the city to the mysterious giant hostile roots that live in the waters and caves of the planet.

The design for the Exxilons and their voices are creepy too, particularly when they first capture Sarah.

The city itself meanwhile is a very interesting concept and the sets are magnificent. I was always scared as a boy at the way the previous Exxilons who had tried to make their way through the city’s corpses were just left to rot in there.

Imagine being one of the Exxilons who failed the first intelligence test and seeing the corpses of all the others around you, knowing that you’d just be left to rot in here forever.

There’s a really effective moment when the Doctor and Bellal make their way to the centre of the city, and the Exxilon who was previously seemingly in control and monitoring their tests melts into nothing.

Its never really explained what he was, but I always thought he was a previous Exxilon who had made his way into the city, possibly hundreds of years ago, only to be ensnared by the zombies who then rigged him up to its brain, making him a part of it, and making use of his intelligence (which would explain why it has tests in the first place.)

As soon as the Doctor and Bellal arrive, then it has no further use for him and he just is disposed of. Had it not been ironically for the Daleks timely intervention, then the Doctor and Bellal would have been suffered the same fate.

The final sequence where the city screams as it dies is also very memorable too.

The only problem with the city is that the traps are a bit too simplistic and easy. Its hard to believe that so many great minds could have been stumped by them.

Aside from Galloway, the other standout supporting character in this adventure is Bellal. Bellal is an extremely lovable character. He has a somewhat child like quality to him, such as when he hugs Sarah in fear of the Dalek, yet at the same time he is also smart enough to be of use to the Doctor in the city, and a brave character when it matters, who is fighting to save his people.

His design is also brilliant. The shinning effect on his skin is very striking, whilst the mask allows the actor more flexibility in his performance at the same time too.

Many fans have said that Bellal should have become a companion and I do think he would have been a fantastic addition to the TARDIS, though the actor who played him, Arnold Yarrow might have had a hard time always dressing in that uncomfortable make up!

The only real faults I have with Death to the Daleks are very minor. Some of the production values are a bit weak, such as the root, which you can see is held up with string. Also some of the incidental music is quite grating. Some of its very good, such as the music when the Sarah first stumbles upon the city, and when the city is dying. However I would agree that the notorious jazz tune that follows the Daleks everywhere they go is terrible and inappropriate for the monsters.

Still other than these minor quibbles, Death to the Daleks is an imaginative, action packed, exciting story that uses the Daleks in a unique and interesting way.

Trivia

  • This story was originally called The Exxilons. Its name was changed to Death to the Daleks at the behest of Robert Holmes who hated the Daleks.
  • This was the first story that acclaimed Doctor Who writer Robert Holmes served as script editor on (though he was uncredited.)
  • It was during the filming of this story that Jon Pertwee decided that he would leave the role of the Doctor after 5 years.
  • The Daleks colour scheme was changed back to white for this story as the director felt they looked more menacing that way. It would ultimately be changed back to grey after this story, though white Daleks would be featured alongside Grey Daleks in Revelation and Remembrance of the Daleks.
  • Nicholas Briggs, the voice of the Daleks in the revival has regularly cited this story as one of his favourites, and has mentioned it as being a big influence on much of his work with Big Finish.
