Another Leaving Card
I also watched my second Doctor Who DVD. The next one was "The Dalek Invasion of Earth." Again this one is one of my favourites. When I was a kid I was convinced that it was in colour, turns out it was the film versions I remembered and when I first saw the original ones I was a little disappointed. That has since changed of course and I now prefer the original. I love the Dalek stories but this one is a favourite because it is one of the first ones with the Daleks on Earth. In this one the Daleks planet is dying and so they need the core of the Earth. They have enslaved humans to dig until they can find the right place to send down a bomb to get to it. The Doctor arrives with Susan, Barbara and Ian and they all help the resistance group to foil the Daleks plan. This is also the one where Susan leaves although she appears in another one, "The Five Doctors", years later. I think some good fanfic could be written about the time between then.
