DOCTOR WHO: The Marcab Conspiracy (lost episode from 1964) - 2009-08-01
Introducing 'Daleknetics: The New Science of Metal Health'...
Clip from a long lost episode of the legendary British Sci-Fi show 'Doctor Who'. 'The Marcab Conspiracy' was a 1964 episode, written by Terry Nation, intended to bridge storylines between 'The Daleks' and 'The Edge of Destruction'. However, the BBC pulled the episode - allegedly due to a perceived anti-Scientology slant.
At the time, the Church of Scientology had set up home in the UK and Nation seems to have used some of L Ron Hubbards pseudo-scientific ideology in creating 'Daleknetics', the philosophy of the Dalek race. Due to the controversy over this episode, Nation never returned to the Daleknetic story arc, although it is alluded to in several novelizations published by Target Books in the 1970's.
