Grokking the Daleks

First an aside: if you don’t know the meaning of the word grok (as invented by Robert Heinlein in his novel Stranger in a Strange Land) look up the reference now. Right, back to Daleks. This is a copy of an image Ian Greaves posted on Twitter (and thanks to Ian for permission to use). It’s a scan pf p18 of the 19th January 1966 issue of the Oxford University magazine Isis. It’s worth a read as it gives a Dalek operator’s rather negative experience of working a Dalek airtime and allows the writer Robin Deneslow to wonder why (in his view) only children like Daleks. Here’s a link if the image won’t open.

It’s from its time but fascinating.
