Conversation

During last night's Netflix showing -

Child 3: Know what I would do if I had a Darlek come up like that? I'd jump on and go, "now SPIN! WHEEEEEE!"

Child 1: I'd poke it in the eye stalk. POKE! POKE! You can't see me!

Me: I'd totally cuddle it. "Whose an ickle Darlek-warlek then? Izzee? Izzee? Hims is just the cutest little genocidal wobot hims is!"

Child 2: This is why Earth will never be invaded by Darleks.

I know I'm going to regret asking this.

What's a Darlek?

Anonymous, if you want to know the true meaning of Darlek, you have to watch the Dr. Who series, i reccommend the new ones, they are "most triumphant."

Anonymous - Um... I'm going to TRY not to judge you harshly for that question. Darklek - very first ever monster in the classic Doctor Who series dating from 1963. Revived for the 2005 new series. Look a little like pepper-pots with accessories like plungers and whisky-thingies. Basic purpose in life is to, "EXTERMINATE!!" See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/gallery/dalek/07day.shtml

Mujja - I KNOW! And can I say I'm quite sad Tennant is leaving and am not entirely sure about the new 'un, but will trust the writers/producers as thus far they've been brilliant.

Child 2 - Wyld Stallyns!

Duck said...

Dr Who is indeed most excellent. I've pretty much watched it all my life. I keep trying to get my friends in Omaha to watch. I know they'd love it. Do you also watch Torchwood - a Dr Who spin-off with Captain Jack?

(Tiny point though. It's Dalek not Darlek.)

You might love to know that it's only one guy who does all the Dalek voices. He's called Nicholas Briggs and he even uses the Dalek voice synthesiser in read-throughs and rehearsals. He just changes tone etc. high-pitched, low-pitched etc. He also does the Cybermen.

Now you just need other Dr Who fans to share this pearl of wisdom with.

the british royal family are werewolves. have been since queen victoria.

and sorry Duck...we were americanally remiss.

Between being ridden on, poked, cuddled, and scorned upon, that would be one confused robot. (I say robot because I am a new Dr. Who fan and there seems to be some debate as to its proper name.)

I think creepy kids in gas masks are stranger than whirley robots, though.

Duck said...

Yes!

The Little Ducks were loving Doctor Who up to the point of the gas mask kids and then freaked out. It took me a whole series before I could persuade them to watch again.

Child 2 - if you look closely at Prince Philip you can see the hairy hands...

CAR, the Duck was right. it is Dalek, we were just being inferior and american and that. and the gas masks are only creepy the first time you watch it...trust me...by the time all your sibs have managed to watch it (twice) it is no longer creepy...although much amusement can be afforded when you have the amazing talent of being able to say "are you my mummy?" in the perfect voice.
