Apropos of nothing in particular, how did anyone ever fall for the claim by Terry Nation™ that he came up with the word Dalek when he saw an encyclopaedia (or was it a telephone directory?) with the letters DAL-LEK on the spine?
Could there ever have been a time when there were fewer words/names starting with the eight letters between D and L than there were between A and C?
Did Terry™ think that there are Doctor Who fans who’ll swallow anything they’re told from an official source? Heaven forbid that that day should ever dawn.
