Victory of the Daleks [Saturday 17th April 2010 at 7:29 pm]


Spitfires. In SPACE!

The Doctor managing to bluff the Daleks with a biscuit was also awesome, and I'm impressed he managed to keep it going as long as he did. Thought whatever happened to the anti-Dalek-raygun force field?

I'm surprised that the mark one Daleks just let themselves be exterminated. That seems more of a cyberman thing, though it does make sort of make sense for Daleks to do that.

The latter part of the episode reminded me quite a bit of the ninth Doctor's finale. Again in that one he had the ability to pwn the Daleks once and for all, at the cost of destroying the Earth. That Doctor cheerfully admitted that he couldn't do it, but for a moment I thought this one might go ahead with it.

Just watched it, and I thought the same thing about the Tribophysical waveform macro-kinetic extrapolator. Maybe the Doctor is getting more daring?

By the way, have you noticed how similar the last few episodes are to Star Wars? The weapons of the TIE fighters in this episode; the voting room of the Time Lords being the same as the Council of the Republic...
