Something of the Daleks

It's not that Doctor Who completely sucks at the moment, it just really needs some new ideas and a touch of original thinking, rather than just doing the same story over and over again. The second part of the latest Dalek extravaganza wasn't so bad, all in all. It's just that it makes me think "Where have I seen this before? Oh yes, every 'epic' Doctor Who story for the last ten years... and also that Batman comic, of course."

At least they dropped one of the new ideas they've had - those horrid cheap-plastic-toy-looking Daleks that made their spectacular debut a few years back. I'm all for changing "classic" designs if the new ones are better, but maybe Daleks are one of those things you just can't really improve on.
