Doctor Who Serial 104 – Destiny of the Daleks

Part One

Really? That’s how they regenerate Romana. She just chooses her body and wants to be Adria? No reasoning for why she was dying?

“Well, it’s not a flying saucer.” No, Doctor, it’s a flying cone.

Those mop wigs are horrendous.

Second Romana kinda reminds me of Jodie Whittaker, except 12 years old.

They’re on Skaro, who would’ve thought that would happen in an episode titled “Destiny of the Daleks.”

Part Two

I’m kinda glad this is a four part episode, the six parters drag.

DAMN! That was the best Dalek intro in the series yet, crashing through the glass was incredible. Yes! Go Terry Nation!

The effect was a bit minimized by the “glass” waving in the wind.

Interesting that the Daleks are using humanoid slaves when they have machines that would do the job. They just like subjugating humanoids. I like this idea.

Part Three

Davros should take the cobwebs off himself.

“We’ll meet again, never doubt it. We’ll meet again.”

She’s a ro-bit!

Part Four

So the robots are fighting the Daleks, and the Daleks realize that they’re in an infinite battle of similar wills because computers are computers, and they’re all doing the same thing. That doesn’t make sense. The Daleks are organic. They’re not machines, just housed in a machine.

The amount of time this episode has wasted playing Rock, Paper, Scissors is overkill.
