“Have you seen a Kroton come this way?” the Doctor asked, somewhat urgently.

“Don’t know. Is a Kroton a big silvery-white thing that looks like it came out of a fondue set?”

The Doctor looked surprised. “Yes, I suppose it is.”

Sam jerked her thumb. “It went that way.”

  1. Yeah, I saw that piece in the Guardian, and wondered if its writer had actually been to the cinema before, or had ever seen any adaptation of a work written in a different medium?

    The books are really very short – the 1950s adaptations had each as two twenty-minute episodes – so a 110-minute film was never going to be faithful to the text of just one original volume.
