Susan Perryman Is Required…

Episode 1

The War MachinesSue: This one has Daleks written all over it. Even the titles look like a Dalek has written them. It’s so obvious.

It’s the story no one likes to talk about. Is it because it’s tedious, missing or racist? It’s up to Sue to find out…

Sue: That’s very sinister. Where’s its mouth?

Me: It doesn’t have a mouth.

Sue: It had better not talk, then. If I ever ...
