The Wrath of Caan

The Dulcinea, M., and I watched the penultimate episode of this season of Doctor Who last night – "The Stolen Earth".

Holy #$@%&*!!!

SPOILERS AHEAD













The first big shock was the return of this "man":



Holy bejeezus, it's Davros! He's looking better than he was in Remembrance of the Daleks. He and his creations have mended the fences and have let bygones be bygones, thanks, in no small part, to the Time Wars. Despite his absence on the screen for some 20 years, Davros has not been absent from the Doctor Who universe. I highly recommend Davros, a great Big Finish audio drama.

If the return of the Dalek creator was surprising, then I was absolutely shocked to see this:



I was stupefied to see that The Doctor started regenerating. While I realize I haven't been keeping up on Doctor Who news to avoid spoilers, but is David Tennant really leaving?

Wait, wait! Don't tell me.

With Daleks running around creating pandemonium and the return of Davros, it was easy to overlook the cameo by Richard Dawkins.

It was also great to see the return of Dalek Caan.



Poor Caan lost his mind. Now he just sits there in his broken Dalek shell mumbling to himself, "He is here...the Dark Lord has come!" Insane Dalek – brilliant! Another great bit is when all the ships approach the Earth and there's a message for the human race. Eagerly all our heroes adjust their volume knobs only to hear "EXTERMINATE!" This was Doctor Who at its best.

We shall see how the season closer turns out…
