Why oh why do I keep reading the TWoP Doctor Who recaps? They're so painfully awful. Actually, the one for 'Dalek' wasn't quite as atrocious as I was expecting, but it was still fucking terrible and featured the following lines.
The Doctor: "An old friend of mine. ...Well, enemy." The Doctor stares, lost in thought. You can be both. It's about intimacy.

Or it's about the sort of pseudo-profound writing that should only appear in college literary magazines. Then, like, 20 pages later:
...and inside the sphere the Dalek explodes, and then there's nothing. And the Doctor stares, because that's him too. And because there's a way in which he's more alone now than before, and he didn't even know it until it was too late. It's about intimacy.

OH MY GOD HE IS REFERING TO HIS OWN CRAPPY CLUNKY CHEESEY POMPOUS LINES! I CAN'T TAKE IT! Too, too dreadful.

Aaargh. Argh. Rgh. I think you're making this all up, and I refuse to check in case you're not.

I swear that I am NOT making it up! In fact there are way, way worse lines than that in the other recaps. I dare you to go and check...

I will not! You are trying to destroy my delicate sanity, and I won't have it!

No, quite the opposite! Reading those recaps is a mental health and self esteem booster! Like, "I may be feeling a bit crap about myself, but at least I would never, ever (a) write something this bad and (b)publish it for the world to see!"

No, she speaks the truth! And you are entirely right not to check, because that way madness lies.
