the horror, the horror! (of fang rock)

Daleks in Manhattan: the most does-what-it-says-on-the-tin episode title since The Deadly Assassin (wouldn’t actually be a an assassin otherwise, would he?)

Better than the execrably-named Aliens of London, World War Three or Doomsday for the sheer kitsch value, maybe, but still not terribly imaginative.

Whatever happened to the days of titles like The Talons of Weng-Chiang… Planet/Face/Mind of Evil… Four to Doomsday… Mawdryn Undead… Carnival of Monsters… The Mind Robber… The Time Meddler…

Great evocative titles all.

How about Dalek Dalek (so good they named it twice)?
