  • Trivia

    • If the lock to the "cage" has a billion combinations, and a Dalek can calculate a thousand billion combinations in one second, why does it need over 10 seconds to crack the lock? Probably because it can calculate a trillion (thousand billion) combinations in a second, but it takes slightly longer to enter them.

      Also take into account that the lock most probably has a limit/threshold to how fast one can work it without overloading and frying the circuits and most probably locking themselves in. Might not be an issue for someone with human or Earth-computer speed, but could certainly be an issue for someone like the Daleks, hence the extra time needed to clear the locks.
