The Ten Specials of Christmas — #9

The next story in our Christmas countdown is the original in so many ways as we have noted elsewhere on the site, but it’s also the most obscure, it is…

#9 – The Daleks Master Plan, Episode 7, The Feast of Steven. Surviving only in audio and a spare few telesnaps it marked a departure from the regular story and made a rare indulgence for the series into farce and is notable for Hartnell’s closing speech not only to Steven and Sara but the audience too.  As Christmas specials go it was an interesting diversion and is now more remembered for the curiosity value than anything else.

#8 coming tomorrow.
