Big Finish Audio: We Are The Daleks

Not a subtle allegory, but with that title you wouldn't expect subtlety.
Just a story about the dangers of fascism, set in the 80s, which ends with a woman as prime minister... of the Daleks.

The Daleks brainwash people through broadcasts and video games, until humans run drone warfare for fun.
Except some people don't need brainwashed, they just reckon if the Daleks are going to trash the planet anyway, might as well sign up to lord it over the rest of the slaves and be killed last.

You know, in some moods this would be funny.
Parodic exaggeration would be funny.
And then you get to hear it all blow up at the end.

I find it rather more depressing when they defeat the Daleks by making them too Dalek to live, rather than by making them too human to survive other Daleks. I mean either way they all die, but watching hate blow itself up is darker.

... listening. because audio. but audio does have the best fx.




I have decided to listen to Doctor Who and do exercise. I been set some lower back exercises today and told I should make a routine. Routine is always easier with incentive, so, Doctor Who audios.

And I have so very many still to get through before I'm caught up even.

So I just need to clear the front room enough to have some floor space and learn some exercises to do...
