Planet of the Daleks in 28mm  

THE definitive Mk III Travel Machine and I’m not in the minority as it appears a popular choice amongst the powers at BBC towers given its longevity over 12 years, 5 Doctors 7 stories plus cameo’s – I imagine it was a contentious choice given that the show was now in colour but I suspect that having a Gold Leader in its debut outing in 1972’s Season 9 Story KKK “Day of the Daleks” meant they wanted the drones to look more drab.  Less is definitely more in this aspect as this paint scheme is the colour of choice to bring out their sinister aspects far more than the original metal and blue versions.  Classic series appearances and speaking cameo’s as follows

1972 Season 9 Story KKK – Day of the Daleks

1973 Season 10 Story QQQ – Frontier in Space – Final episode cameo and tie in to following
