Redux 11: Choose Sarcasm (Genesis of the Daleks)

You don’t choose sarcasm on a daily basis?

You’re missing out. Kind of like how we’ve missed out for the last 2,100 days on releasing an episode covering Genesis of the Daleks. Why are there no Doctor Who podcasts that only cover Genesis of the Daleks? The world may never know. Anyway, this week it’s Genesis of the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired from March 8 to April 12, 1975.

2:20: We did go out in blaze of glory on our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, which you should check out if you like podcasts, Blake’s 7, or podcasts on Blake’s 7.
2:35: it’s a good point.
15:15: Iron cross
16:15: Adolf Eichmann was one of the military organizers of the “Final Solution”, i.e. the genocide of Jewish people in Germany. Josef Mengele was one of the top scientists in the Nazi regime, performing untold countless atrocities “in the name of science” on prisoners in concentration camps.
48:09: The script for Genesis of the Daleks was released in The Scripts: Tom Baker 1974/5. Weirdly enough it’s on Amazon.
48:42: Here’s the Chakoteya transcript for this episode, I guess.
53:47: The image for Death to the Daleks on the TARDIS wiki actually kind of looks like a fan render and photoshop which is baffling because normally the wiki picks pretty good representative images.
56:56: Genesis of the Remembrance is pretty funny actually, I didn’t believe it at first.
1:20:23: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
1:21:20: The American Sherlock Holmes tv series was from 1954.
1:23:2: Leicester is just one of those British words that is pronounced nothing like how it’s spelled. Like Worcestershire.
1:26:00: The Airzone Solution
1:28:10: Don’t worry, turns out we actually know exactly why Peter Gabriel left Genesis.
