On the one hand, it’s a cute picture. On the other hand, there’s something weird about using daleks to promote tolerance. Given that they were intended to represent nazis and kill anyone who doesn’t fit in, they’re an odd choice to represent a persecuted minority.
Yeah, though given how much violence has been done to the concept in the new series it’s not such a huge stretch.
Perhaps it’s that this one Dalek had the courage to come out of the closet in such a regimented society. :-)
Maybe it’s in Dalek hell, perpetual happiness and good will. Or maybe Daleks are so angsty because they’re afraid to express their feelings and destroying the universe seemed easier.
