    Good first episode.

    It won't break my heart when we are done with the Ponds though.

    Interesting way to reboot the Daleks, it will really remove the advantage from the Doctor.

    The Doctor's plans always remind me of this cartoon...

    ...except his plans are usually all Step Two.

    So is he officially Doctor Who now? :D

    To the OP. Could we try and keep the ep threads about the ep?

    I thought it was good. Again they setup someone you could imagine as a companion but they didn't make it to the end.

    Not sure how this removes the advantage from The Doctor. Seems it gives him an advantage.

    Ironically,
    she IS the new companion, although nobody seems to be able to figure out how that's going to work. Her presence in this episode was a very well-kept secret. She (re)joins the cast for good in the Christmas Special.
    Seems to me it could cut both ways. On the one hand, the Daleks will underestimate him. On the other, they won't waste all their time screaming in panic. :D

    Well, the Doctor does have a time machine. Maybe he will meet her before she got Dalek-ized. And find that her name is not really Oswin. But that would also require that Oswin had her memories of the Doctor wiped (since she did not recognize him), which is possible but makes this theory less likely.

    What color?

    Made me giggle. And not really a bad question. (it could have been relevant)...

    I don't mind but that's a pretty big spoiler without any warning ;)

    Without extra additional redundant warning, you mean? Because the word "spoiler" seems like a warning to me.

    But you have no clue what the spoiler is about. The main warning would have been 'future episode spoiler'

    I enjoyed the episode a lot, probably since I didn't see the ending coming at all and that's likely because as far as I know, the Daleks have never actually converted a human into a full blown Dalek before. They reluctantly used human DNA to splice together Daleks (which were considered impure), but never converted a human into a Dalek. I think Moffat confused the Daleks for the Cybermen. ;)

    Still despite that somewhat major flaw, I enjoyed the episode.

    Oh and I thought this was TCF, not Reddit. :p

    But remember these were insane and crazy daleks placed in an asylum.

    I guessed the correct ending as soon as the Doctor mentioned how difficult it is to hack Dalek tech. Then I was 100% certain when the Doctor asked how she was getting milk for the souffles.

    I watched the BBC airing and now watch the BBC America recording. Was there much cut?

    I thought maybe she was converted into a human puppet and was seeing things (like Amy was earlier), but being totally converted into a Dalek didn't even cross my mind since as I've said, it's never been done before. I'm not sure how it's really even possible. Did they put her brain in a Dalek shell or something, or did they turn her into a squid?
