When the part of a creature has been unearthed in an archaeology dig, it finds its missing pieces and Earth is once again terrorized by an evil that threatens the planet.
Of course, leave it to an inquisitive Archaeologist to help this creature escape. A creature that looks like a squid. Why is this squid so feared that age ago…three warriors took the pieces of this creature and went to the corners of the earth to bury and keep guard over it?
Do you know what this parasite is that has latched on and taken over the body of the archaeologist is? A Dalek!!!!! YES!!! And you know what it wants?Well, it is not any ordinary Dalek. It’s a reconnaissance Dalek and it is collecting info that will assist the Dalek plot to once again try to take over the world.
But there is another story line that was much more interesting and that was of Ryan’s Dad popping up to mend his relationship with his son.
Team Tardis is wary of Aaron’s visit, because as Graham put it so wisely:
“Family is not about DNA or a name. It’s about what you do.”
When Ryan called Graham Gramps and Graham called Ryan Son…I loved it.
Graham actually becomes the touch point that Aaron needed. He shows how much his Mum loved him and that could lead him to mend his relationship with Ryan.
the main plot point, I have to admit that when the Doctor called in to speak to UNIT, but customer service told her that that group had suspended operations due to funding from partnering countries…it made me laugh.
But, once the Dalek got canned up that military showed up to defend. Unfortunately, they are no match for a Dalek.
Of course, history helps the Doctor and her extended family overtake the Dalek…but it is an act of desperation that not only takes out the Dalek but allows Ryan to forgive his Dad.
When the Dalek is cast out of it’s shell with the help of Aaron’s Oven/Microwave, it latches on to Aaron. The only way to separate the two would be to force it. The Doctor takes the Tardis close to a supernova and thinks that will suck the weakened Dalek off of Aaron.
When that is not the case, Ryan jumps to help his Dad.All ends well…Barring the Ryan/Aaron/Graham story…this still does not reach the level of the Rosa Parks episode.And now our quartet is off to adventures everywhere.
The next season will premiere in 2020.
