Let’s Talk About the Daleks


Now, we all know the Daleks are the Doctor’s ultimate enemies. They fought against the Time Lords in the Time War, and they seem to keep coming back.  To me they are probably the most frustrating enemies of the Doctor, I mean they are these salt/pepper shaker-shaped machine like creatures with the meanest streak to exterminate all things not Dalek, or “pure”. All in all they are really creepy!

Before I go on, I would like to point out that this is just my opinion, not a general fact.

The reason I chose to talk about the Daleks is because they remind me of the Nazis. Their whole show of exterminating everything that is not right, using people’s DNA, and dead bodies. Ew! After this thought of mine, I researched on the Daleks and saw they were “inspired” by the Nazi’s. The Dalek Emperor reminds me of Adolf Hitler, and the Dalek soldiers are like the Nazi soldiers. I honestly think they are as wicked and clueless as the Nazis. Think about it, they have an emperor who thinks he’s God and wants to be the ruler of the World (Earth), just like Adolf Hitler did (ok, well maybe he did not think he was God, but he killed many people like he owned their lives). The Daleks were to over-authoritative and thought they could destroy or kill anything/anyone if they decided to. Mostly believing that they have to make their race “pure”. They are absolutely terrible.

I think the episodes which Daleks showed much of the Nazis’ attitude are very eminent in the “Dalek Invasion of Earth”. With their straight raised arm, salute of the Daleks, not to mention how they worship and obey their so-called Emperor. This may not make sense to lots of you though. But seeing the Daleks, kind of made me think of the Nazi’s, mostly because the emperor is alike to Adolf Hitler, and the whole Dalek Army is Nazi-like*.
