“The Dæmons studied other races, treating the universe as their laboratory. The Third Doctor said that, circa 100,000 years BC, the Dæmons arrived on Earth and helped the humans to overcome the Neanderthals before trying to lead their evolution and development (TV: The Dæmons) in exchange for allegiance, as they often did with lesser species throughout the cosmos.”
“According to the Doctor, the Dæmons inspired the Greek civilisation, the Renaissance and the Industrial Revolution.”
Only saw that episode once, as a kid watching Doctor Who.
Amoral, scientific creatures with horns that did experiments.
I just read that was a favorite episode among the cast, crew and writers and did really well in the views.
Probably one of many reasons why I’m always skeptical of evolutionary psychology. It was the Dæmons that did it!
