Last week was the 50th Anniversary of Barbara and Ian leaving the TARDIS. See what we thought of The Chase.

“I shall miss them. Yes, I shall miss them, silly old fusspots.”
Imagine being chased through space and time. Imagine the ones chasing you are your most hated enemies The Daleks. The Daleks have discovered time travel and are now hunting The Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki all through time. The TARDIS crew is being chased all around to the Mary Celeste, to a monster themed fun house, to The Empire State Building in New York City USA. The Daleks are relentless in their pursuit until the final showdown on the planet Mechanus with the Mechanoids.
The fight with The Daleks and The Mechanoids was pretty good. It was good seeing the Daleks meeting their match against another robot type species. The only problem is that they were kind of bulky and well really round. They were supposed to be a villain for The Daleks but never caught on in the TV show. They did however have a prominent role in The Dalek comic strip of the 60’s.
