Told ya!

See? Didn't I say?! It turned into a nice Dalek, JUST as I predicted! And there were pingpong balls right at the end. I flippin knew it.
And you all dared scoff at my sarcastic remarks...

Ha! Phooey to the lot of ya.

It was rubbish though, wasn't it? You do all believe me now don't you? Hello?

And what about my psychic powers, frightening eh? I now predict that next week's episode will be slightly strange, with scary bits and K-9 will turn up with a big curly moustache and proclaim himself as leader of the Cybermen.

You read it here first.

A nice Dalek? He got Soldiers wet then electrocuted them, he sucked a Scientist's face off, and shot a guard who was trying to protect Adam and Rose. And then it goes all wimpy because of the DNA it nicked off Rose - so Derek by the end of the show it WASN'T a Dalek, as the Doctor said, it was mutating into something else.

Next week's one has that annoying Simon Pegg in it. Oh how I hate that Man.

Derek, I was reading an interview from the writer of that episode - look what I found!

Chris: The poor Dalek didn't even have a name!"
Rob Shearman: "It does have a name. Derek. Derek the Dalek. Maiden name Metaltron."

I don't recall the Dalek shooting ping pong balls from it's eye. (Note that it only has ONE, Derek!) You probally mean "Derek" the Dalek's death scene, in which the spheres in it's armour flew out and created a force field around him before he exterminated himself (as so not harm Rose and the Doctor). Which were too big to be ping pong balls anyway.

Gertie said...

My mate Barry Blackbird thinks he didn't exterminate: more like transport itself elsewhere. Might tie in to the fact new look Daleks shall be springing up later in the series. Thoughts?

Derek said...

Ok, ok, they weren't flying out of his eyes exactly, but they were flying about! And they were so pingpong ball-like you knew which bit I meant. And that Dalek was soft, wanting to "feel the warmth of the sunshine" on his bogey body. He even let people live, started feeling emotions and everything! He nearly cried at one point thinking about all them other Daleks getting killed in the "Time War" (Do you think they threw exploding clocks at each other?). Probably thought about his mum and dad dalek and the little blonde-haired dalek girl who used to live up the street from him when he was a little boy dalek.

I hope they do come back though, as Barry Blackbird predicts. But how?! They've all been destroyed! Unless they go back in time to just before they were destroyed in another dimension. Or something.

maybe they will go back in time to the Time Wars - but the Beeb budget probably won't run to that. there are bound to be a few daleks lying around an old scrapheap somewhere, just waiting for someone to turn up. Now that would make scrapheap challenge interesting...

Paws said...

Oh, yeah, that would be cool!

Host: Your challenge today is to build an evil alien of destruction! Now you have 45 min...

Team member: Finished!

Darlek: EXTERMINATE!!!!EXTERMINATE!!!!

The Dalek we saw was a bog standard, run of the mill soldier Dalek. The new ones (which have legs!) may be special ones, or the Dalek we saw may have been a member of an old unit of Daleks that hadn't got an upgrade yet. This is why there was that dispute between the BBC and that man who makes them a while ago - they couldn't decide on what the new ones should look like.

But they're integral to this 'Bad Wolf' story - oh, and the Face of Boe returns from Episode 2. I know fairly well how the series will end, and he's paramount to it.
