Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks - Thal (Doctor Who) - Netflix

The Thals are mentioned, but not shown, in the TV Century 21 Dalek comic strip story Genesis of Evil (1965). In the narrative the Thals are stated to be a peaceful race, originally inhabiting the continent of Davius, who are at war with the Daleks; short, aggressive, blue-skinned humanoids who inhabit the continent of Dalazar. The Daleks plan to use a neutron bomb against the Thals but a meteorite storm detonates it prematurely, causing planet-wide destruction in which the Thals apparently perish. Thals are featured in the film Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965), which is based upon the BBC Doctor Who television programme serial The Daleks, and the film's 1966 comic book adaptation. The Thals appear in the Eighth Doctor Adventures novel War of the Daleks (1997) by John Peel, which depicts them as having once again become a warlike society, willing to destroy an inhabited planet simply as part of a trap to defeat a Dalek attack fleet. In the Big Finish Productions audio play The Mutant Phase (2000), a Thal attempt to use a biological weapon against the Daleks nearly creates a monstrous insectoid race. A Thal expedition captured by the Daleks features in the Telos novella The Dalek Factor (2004) by Simon Clark. In the Big Finish audio play Brotherhood of the Daleks (2008), the Sixth Doctor discovers a Thal project to brainwash Daleks to act as 'sleeper agents', only for the plan to fail when the Daleks' true nature asserts itself.
