This week, on Doctor Who: The Daleks hijack the Doctor, Amy, and Rory to save them from their most crazed brethren.
I have a confession to make. I don’t like the Daleks. I understand and respect their history with the show, their origins as a clear parallel to Nazi Germany, and their role as the ultimate antithesis of the Doctor’s philosophy. But after 10 episodes in 6 seasons with them as the main antagonist, including 3 two-part season finales, not to mention their uneven track record in Classic Who, I’m Dalek-ed out. They’re no longer interesting, they’re no longer scary, and they’re certainly no longer surprising. A mysterious force has come perilously close to destroying the Universe? It’s probably the Daleks,
