Recently, when I see complaints about the Daleks it’s to do with them being overused. The Daleks appear in the thousands now, zipping all over the screen and firing the Doctor at planets. They’re just not as scary as they used to be. But there’s something else, too. They’re not quite as Dalek, either.
So today, I’d like to rewind. I’d like to go back to the beginning, and take a look at just what makes the Daleks … well, Daleks.
