Doctor Who 30-Day Challenge

Day 4 - Favorite Villain

This was pretty tough to decide, as I’ve never been particularly impressed with many of the various Doctor Who villains. Sure, there are some formidable and scary aliens he comes across, and sure the Master shows up to be a pain in the ass once in a while, but the Doctor manages to defeat them every single time without being affected too much. Though, the Master comes close.

I nominate the Daleks because they’re so damn persistent, not to mention efficient. Not only that, they represent everything that the Doctor finds himself at odds with within himself. It was the Daleks that he had to destroy along with his home world, and it was the Daleks that somehow survived in spite of that, and it is the Daleks that continue to challenge the Doctor’s values and beliefs with their every appearance. Sometimes, you wonder whether or not the Doctor might one day snap and become just like them, that’s the kind of storytelling power the Daleks have.

You would have made a good Dalek.” - A quote from the episode simply titled “Dalek.” It gave me chills then and it gives me chills now.
