The High Brain Revolution (Crystalizing "The Krotons")

The High Brain Revolution (Crystalizing "The Krotons")

When you hear the words, "a Doctor Who monster created to succeed the Daleks," you know the chances of a train wreck are high. Sometimes you get something so bad it's good (hello, Mechanoids!), and sometimes you get The Krotons. The Krotons don't always attempt to influence primitive civilizations, but when they do, they're obsessed with finding high brains — which makes them a lot like today's Big Tech CEOs, just made of crystal and with a propensity to "disperse" those who don't meet the bar. They might be hard to take seriously, but at least Patrick Troughton is here to reassure us that it's OK to laugh.
