dangermousie: (Dr Who by panpipe)
The weather was really really really nice this weekend, and yours truly got a lot of walking in.

Also, we went to see RSC's version of Canterbury Tales at the Kennedy Center and it was glorious and funny and bawdy.

Also saw Ice Age 2, which was OK but forgettable except for the glorious apotheosis of the squirrel and the vultures' Busby Berkley number, which were worth the price of admission.

Also saw the Doctor Who episode "Dalek" which was the best one so far. I still can't find Daleks frightening, because this thing looks like an offspring of a trashcan and a vacuum and has an evil plunger (Bless the BBC of old and their tiny budget). But CE sold me on its horror through sheer reaction to it: revulsion that isn't reasoning. And I ended up feeling pity for it. And of course, the question of it not being something you can reason with it is something else.

And we finally find out what happened to the Time Lords. It looks like a side effect of whatever the Doctor did to wipe out the Daleks, killed all of his race. I think the Doctor is wondering around all shell-shocked and borderline insane ever since.

On the Doctor/Rose front, I loved how he did bring the wall down, even though she was trapped inside. And how she told him she didn't blame him and she wouldn't have changed those last months for the world. And then the look on his face! And his "she was 19!" And of course, Dalek referred to her as "the woman you love." Yay. And I love even more that when it turned out she was alive, he let her (and the Dalek) out because "I could not kill her again." Whoa.

I also liked the touch of humanity in Dalek and touch of Dalekness in the Doctor. Daleks invoke such darkness in him. No wonder the Dalek tells him 'you could have been a Dalek.'

I am a bit confused as to how the assistant chick ended up running the joint though? Why did the underlings listen to her?

And the torture scene was wimpy. Come on, guys. Watch some Farscape and learn how it's done.
