  1. Destiny of the Daleks was my first ever adventure. Somewhere in my head Doctor Who is still the Doctor, Romana, K9 and the Daleks. It was love at first eye-stalk.

    Also looking forward to the return of the Oodcast only slightly less than the return of the series itself. Which is perhaps the highest compliment I can give.
