The Daleks Need Some Team-Building Exercises


Three points about this Doctor Who spoof from YouTube user BrainInSkull:

1) The tone of this video is very Monty Python. So much so in fact that I’m getting a bit melancholy because none of the Pythons actually wrote a Who episode. (John Cleese’s cameo in City of Death is still amazing though).

2) Daleks apparently hate nepotism almost as much as they loathe the Doctor. Who would’ve guessed?

3) The Daleks should use profanity on a regular basis.

(Thanks to Michael Hendrick for the tip).
