Doctor Who: The Only Good Dalek based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
No new territory but a good Dalek tale, ironically using the "new paradigm" visuals while telling a tale of the classic Dalek Empire, mostly from the Hartnell era. (or, so it seemed with mentions Sara Kingdom, inclusions of slithers, a bits of classic Skaro,) These are Daleks of old, setting plans with plans and traps within traps. You would probably get a headache trying to fit it into Who continuity, but as a stand alone romp, it delivers fairly well.
Having read several Doctor Who novelizations and comics, I've concluded that the heart of the show just does not translate well to either medium. That being said, I believe The Only Good Dalek is one of the best so far.
Yawn! Bring back David Tennant! (or Peter Davison.... or Tom Baker....) This latest "Doctor" bores me and his companion Amy Pond wins the award for Most Annoying Companion (GROUPIE, actually, in her case!) ever! Would love to see some stories of David Tennant's Doctor traveling more with one of his BEST companions ever, lovable ol' Wilf, Donna's granddad! (as well as matching wits with John Simm's version of The Master-- talk about Shakespearean-level drama!)
