Intro: London, the year 2164. Vicious aliens are turning Earthlings into robomen, an early step in their evil plan to take over the planet. The strong-hearted among you will remain tuned now to witness "The Dalek Invasion of Earth."

Outro: Will the Supreme Dalek's order to destroy London be carried out? Be with us next Sunday evening at 11 for the astonishing conclusion of "The Dalek Invasion of Earth." But before this Earth week passes, you might want to reserve space on your schedule this Thursday night at 10:30 for a Time Lord special: "The Five Doctors." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
