A sustained year long cosmic meteorite shower rains down on Earth. The end of the World? Divine retribution? Ming the Merciless?

WORSE

After the meteorites, millions succumb to a lethal plague, the entire populations of Asia, Africa and South America are wiped out. Surviving Governments attempt to implement emergency procedures but these prove futile as civil and social order totally break down. Widespread looting and lawlessness prevail in an orgy of uncontrolled anarchy.  After 6 months of plague and disorder the world has become split into tiny communities and regressed technologically from sustained EMP’s. Too far apart to combine and unite and too small individually to put up any coordinated form of resistance, this is the moment the Saucers arrive. Their intentions are clear as large urban centres are razed to the ground, some however, after firebombing are occupied, but by who?

So after a period of lethargy I have finally updated the Dalek pages. Check out your favourites and celebrate like a true Kaled the lack of Paradigm abominations.


So onto VETOED for entry #12. I also like its stem Veto. For me this is one of those grown up words that I first heard (or technically saw) as a young lad watching Doctor Who and had to ask my parents what it meant.  Re-watching the Who tv (not movie version) story “Dalek Invasion of Earth” many moons later it came flooding back to me seeing the VETOED posters splashed all over a post apocalyptic ruined London courtesy of the awesome Daleks.  I think it was meant to act as a clue for human survivors to head down to the south west of England for safety (pre-floods of course!) Best of the lot was (and this is from memory until I watch the dvd again) the one stuck under the statue of Field Marshal Haig on Whitehall near where I used to spend pointless hours of the working week trying to make a difference but that’s another story.
