FINAL PART OF CADET DALEKS SWEET CIGARETTE CARDS...
At long last we've reached the end of our journey at the side
of DOCTOR WHO in his quest on behalf of The DALEKS, on
which we commenced over a year ago. As you'll recall, these cards
were made by CADET, a confectionery company who manufactured
sweet cigarettes in the mid-1960s for the purpose of luring Britain's
impressionable youngsters into the evil habit of smoking by wean-
ing them on candy-flavoured counterfeits until they were old
enough to start on the real thing.
As an extra-added bonus I've included one of the two boxes
which housed the cards and confectionary, so that your collection
is as complete as I can manage. Just look at that last card - can you
imagine such a scene happening in the famous BBC TV SF serial? It's
just like the final panel in an IPC BILLY BUNTER comic strip. Of
course, the 'real' Daleks would've exterminated the Doc once he'd
served his purpose, the naughty but loveable little rascals.
So - that's one journey completed. Let's see what others
await us in future posts and we'll traverse them together!
Read the back of card #49 - "Why was not Dr. Who
destroyed?" What's wrong with "Why was Dr. Who not
destroyed?" These cards read as if a Dalek wrote them
(or YODA from STAR WARS).
