Oh no!  NNTMP has got Crabs!  And, as if things couldn’t get any more dystopian, we’ve also got traffic!  And… AND… cats driving.  AND… AND… AND cats driving while wearing HATS!  So, yeah, there are, apparently, dark days ahead for humanity, but fear not Probers, because John and Porter have slapped on their “Dogged Persistence” patches and stared unflinchingly into the Face of Boe as they grapple with some bumper-to-bumper Gridlock.

We then follow on to a 2nd Doctor, Ben, Polly, and Jamie classic via the fairly obvious link, which of course is… the dystopian future.  NO!  It’s not MacraTHERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS MACRA (story title excepted – there are such things as terrors related to said non-existent Macra)! If this discussion between John and Porter seems a bit more animated to you, then in all probability it’s because they are taking on some missing episodes now returned to us through the exciting innovation of cartoons matched to the original soundtracks.  So join them for a heapin’ helpin’ of Surf ‘n’ Mind Control Gas as they confront The Something-Something Terror!

You know what aliens who have conquered space and time travel and at one point ruled vast swathes of the Universe probably would not say upon discovering humanity, which is struggling to hold back an anti-vaccine movement in the middle of a global pandemic?  “Hey!  We should be more like them!”  But, we’ll roll with it as the Cult of Skaro finds itself in 1930s Manhattan and immediately gets into the world of New York real estate (which, let’s be honest, could use some good exterminators – ZING!) and Frankensteining some humans/pigmen.  Will John swoon over the handsome Ryan Carnes and Andrew Garfield?  Will Porter swoon over a mutant face octupus in a pinstriped suit?  Find out as we join Daleks in Manhattan and witness the Evolution of the Daleks.

Of course, it’s not clear why these Daleks are still wandering around gettin’ all human when we find out that the Second Doctor engineered their “final end” way back in 1967!  In addition to forgetting that they already had been wiped out, those Manhattan Daleks must have also forgotten that they had already been mucking about with the human factor too.  But, as the old saying goes, NNTMP never forgets, and so Porter and John enter the murky world of off-air audio recordings supplemented with blurry black-and-white photos as they try to get to the root of The Evil of the Daleks.  Oh, and they also decide whether humanity in general is good or evil.  In the last 10 minutes.

But before we come to grips with sneaky Daleks, let’s take a moment to celebrate our 50th episode!  Yes, many said we couldn’t do it.  They said the world was too saturated in Podcasts.  They said we lacked the requisite connections to turn NNTMP into nothing short of an international, dare we say, phenomenon.  Well, they were right – but we did it anyway!

As if 50 eps wasn’t momentous enough, our stories this week pack in the momentousness.  We begin with 11th Doctor Matt Smith’s historic first meeting with the Daleks – made even more historic by the inclusion of the historic Winston Churchill during the historic Blitz when the Nazis were trying to make the UK history.  The Daleks, themselves moved by all the historicness, decide to roll out a super fab redesign that answers the question, “What if the Daleks were the same color as M&Ms?”  The answer is that they would be deeply unpopular.  But not unpopular enough to thwart The Victory of the Daleks!

We then return rocket back to perhaps the single most important story in Doctor Who history – which must be why it was immediately lost by the BBC.  Anyhow… it’s the debut of Patrick Troughton as Doctor #2, confusing the hell out of the youth of Britain who were desperately trying to understand what had happened.  Ol’ Pat is not immediately helpful to his friends Ben and Polly or to the audience, but fortunately the Daleks are around to comfort us by sinisterly manipulating the colonists, driving a scientist insane, and then just mass slaughtering everyone in sight.  The Omnibot 2000 they are most certainly not.  Join Porter and John as they get a charge out of The Power of the Daleks.
