Guys! The reason Clara was trying to convince the Doctor that there can be good Daleks is because in the Asylum of the Daleks, Oswin Oswald WAS a good Dalek.
Remember she does not remember it
OMFG it just hit me
when Rusty said “you are a good dalek” he didn’t mean that the Doctor was good “dalek” in that the Doctor had hated in his heart, he meant that the Doctor was a “good” Dalek in that he sees the beauty in life and all that.
I don’t think that’s what he meant. Rusty understands beauty but also hate.
Doctor gets angry at Dalek
Dalek somehow reactivates and kills innocent people
Doctor gets more mad
Dalek makes comment about how they and the Doctor aren’t so different
Rinse and repeat
I like Capaldi and want him to have a good run but please stop re using the same old boring stories (and villains) and do something better please.
Why would you not use a iconic villain.
Question: Why didn’t Clara mention that she was a good Dalek when Twelve was speaking in absolutes about Daleks? Also, why didn’t Twelve remember when a Dalek took Rose’s DNA and became good? Although I suppose the real question is, why can’t Moffat manage continuity?
She prob does not remember much when she was scattered across time
WAIT WAIT WAIT
Much has been said of 8:2 “Into the Dalek“‘s allusion to 1:6 “Dalek” with the “You would be a good Dalek” / “You are a good Dalek” parallel. But do you remember how the conversation in 1:6 went before those powerful words?
The Dalek appears on screen and insists that it will speak only to the Doctor. The sprinkler system has engaged and the Dalek is getting soaking wet. The Doctor looks up and says:
"You’re going to get rusty."
I love this show.
Hey remember when the daleks had those impenetrable blast shields? Yeah apparently moffat doesn’t either
