Oh, goddamn YES!

The hell with everything else, today is a good day just for the Dr Who episode “Dalek”. Extermin-friggin’-ATE! The only thing missing now is The Master. Other than that, I am completley happy. :)

Edit: Fuck me. That’s one of the best Dr Who eps ever.

      I think he’s the first Doctor to look good shirtless. :)

      • argh_jim on

        For a moment, I thought you were saying that you’d like to see the first Doctor shirtless!!!

        • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

          Ew! EEEEEW!! Oh, jeez, are you trying to scare me neuter? I mean, yes, I like the Hartnell Doctor, but jeeez!!

          • argh_jim on

            Well, yeah, I mean I’ve heard of having a thing for older men, but unless you’re Anna-Nichol….

                ew? EW??? son, you don’t KNOW ‘ew’ until you’ve seen tom baker in ‘the canterbury tales.’

                don’t believe me? try this on: ol’ curly-locks standing up in a bathtub. naked. FULL. frontal.

                ***playing with himself.***

                seriously. i went blind for a fortnight.

                • argh_jim on

                  Yeah, but I mean… great work if you can get people to PAY for the privilege!

                • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

                  I’m not blind, but I think I’ve developed a cataract just contemplating it.

                  Speaking of Tom Baker: go see this. :)

                  • qthewetsprocket on

                    ah yes, the flagship of the bakaraoke page. my favorite is his rendition of the buggles’ ‘video killed the radio star.’ :)

      Doctor versus The Master of Manos while Rose battles Torgo!

      • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

        “I am Torgo. I take care of the TARDIS while The Master is away.”

        • dragonscholar on

          That reminds me of a sick idea I had for art/story/rpg or a contest:
          Character Exchange program.

          Swap Sebastians from Little Mermaid and Babylon 5.
          Swap The Master from Dr. Who and Manos: The Hands of Fate.

    The hell with everything else, today is a good day just for the Dr Who episode “Dalek”. Extermin-friggin’-ATE!

    oh my. :) if *that* made you this happy, just wait a couple episodes…

    • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

      There are just a few things to make the restart perfect. There must be Daleks… check. There must be Cybermen… check. There ought to be Sontarans and Yeti… remains to be seen. And there must must must be The Master. Remains to be seen. It would just figure for The Doctor that the only other surviving Gallifreyan would be The Master, of course. I continue to hold out hope that the delay is only in the difficulty finding someone worthy of Roger Delgado.

      • avon_deer on

        Cybermen will feature in the upcoming series. The rumour is that they are going to bring the Master back as well, but I cannot confirm this.

        • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

          I’ve seen the new Deco-ish Cybermen design, and I like it. As for The Master… as long as they find someone in the Delgado “evil is fun!” mode rather than the Ainley “eyeroll and mustache-twirl” mode, all will be well.

          The critical point will be if you can imagine the new Master delivering the lines with which we were first introduced to The Master some 35 years ago: “I am usually referred to as The Master.” “Oh, is that so?” “Universally.” God, what a great way to bring in a new character. :)

    Dalek was a great episode. The look on the Doctor’s face when he first walks into that room is priceless. “Impossible.”

    • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

      I think this was the first episode to actually have a genuine conversation with a Dalek, as opposed to just having them shouting “EXTERMINATE!” and “DO NOT MOVE!” and “THE DALEKS ARE THE SUPERIOR RACE!” and “OOO, SHINEY!”… er, well, maybe not that last.

      What was really creepy was getting the Dalek’s-eye(stalk) view, literally and figuratively… and seeing that The Doctor has a sadistic side!

      “You would have been a good Dalek.” Now that brought out a hell of a look on The Doctor’s face. :)

      The box set will be worth the price just for this one episode.

      • qthewetsprocket on

        hrm…’sadistic’ is a little harsh, although with some truth in it i suppose.

        in the dr who confidential that went along with that episode (pity they don’t air those on scifi) eccleston said that the daleks are the doctor’s achilles heel: he behaves very differently than he normally would this whole episode because he’s very, very frightened. (because he knows what they’re capable of). and i thought he did a really good job of playing that side of it; ie his aggression came much more from genuine terror and adrenaline than any real desire to see an enemy suffer.

        for that reason alone – eccleston’s acting the fear rather than hate – i can forgive the shot of the doctor with a gun in his hand. (and at least he didn’t use it).

        • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

          When The Doctor yelled “Exterminate!” when he first tried to kill it, I about fell off my chair. That was more than just trying to eliminate a hated and feared enemy, that was deliberately salting the wound.

      • surakofb5 on

        If I were Rose, I’d be a little frightened of the Doctor now.

        • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

          And that’s really the only problem I have with Rose, is that she accepts all this far too easily. Unless living on Earth in the lasty several years has completely desensitized her… which I can’t rule out.

    A wonderful episode – Dr. Who has also captured ‘s heart as well.

    And that line “I won” really was profound.

    It actually took me back to the classic “Genesis of the Daleks.”

    • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

      It’s a little weird to feel sorry for a Dalek who has lost the ability to kill at will… but you do. Just brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

      I’ve heard that they tried everything they could to digitally reproduce the Dalek voice effect but in the end, nothing sounded quite like the old analog equipment.

      • dragonscholar on

        The human ear is a subtle thing.

        The other thing it brought home, better than anything, even “Genesis” is the utter POINTLESSNESS of the Daleks. They exist to kill and conquer, denyed that they’re nothing, literally nothing. Davros, in the end, achieved absolutely squat.

        • The Rev Dr Sherwood Forrester on

          Yup. And a Dalek with emotions isn’t a Dalek anymore. I was just happy to see the pepperpots back; this episode went so far above and beyond, it’s really one of the best ever.
