New VOD "Dr. Who and the Daleks" Now Available!!!

ATTENTION, WHOVIANS!

(for the uninitiated, that is not something Jay-Z yells at the beginning of a song, it’s a name for Doctor Who fans)

Before Matt Smith, before David Tennant, before Christopher Eccleston, before even the scarf and afro guy, there was Peter Cushing. Well, not before, exactly, because this feature-length movie isn’t a canonical part of the Doctor Who universe or storyline. So it’s sort of more adjacent, than before. It’s nearby, if nothing else. Approximate, at least. Like, Dr. Who is in it! But instead of a mysterious Timelord alien, he’s kind of just a confused human grandpa with the last name Who. But he does have a TARDIS! Of course, instead of a disguised alien craft it’s just, like, this junky thing he made with his granddaughter. Oh yeah, he hangs out with his granddaughters. Yeah. But then they travel through space and fight the most classic Dr. Who bad guys of all, the Daleks! Of course, in this imagining of Dr. Who, the Daleks are just some dopey trashcan looking guys with plungers sticking out of ‘em that talk funny -- oh, that’s how they still are? Seriously?? PERFECT! IT’S CANON AFTER ALL!

So no matter how much you know, don’t know, or don’t want to know about Dr. Who, this movie will fill your needs. Plus, the RiffTrax itself is totally canon, and an official part of the Mike, Kevin, and Bill timeline (unlike that regrettable one-off TV special, “RiffTrax goes to Hawaii”, which shall never be spoken of again). Exterminate Dr. Who and the Daleks today!

Okay, you CANNOT convince that is Peter Cushing! This is CLEARLY John Carradine pretending to be Peter Cushing pretending to be Dr. Who!

Peter Cushing is John Carradine in "Dr. Who and the Daleks."

I have a feeling, in the mythology of THIS movie, they're probably robots.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

No, but if you're not prepared for it it kinda... kinda looks like it could be something else. What, I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure it's gross.

And as for "if they are robots" in this continuity...

They actually do say something in the movie to the affect that once they have the cure for the radiation poisoning, they can finally leave their protective shells.

Still doesn't explain the pre-alpha build of Stephen Hawking's voice synthesis they use.

They're still the creatures inside the shell, the goofy guy (how did they describe his footed-ness in the riff?) and the Doctor wrapped the creature up in the tarp when they disabled the Dalek. We see a glimpse of it's hand or whatever under the tarp as they leave. How do the Daleks talk in the show? Is it this bad? Because MAN I was right along with the guys whenever they started talking.

The Daleks have the grating voice because their original clear voice was much sadder. You can listen to it here.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbDrdeQAorQ#t=2m53s  The old man is the Doctor by the way, and the dark haired woman to his right is his granddaughter Susan.

They are much better though, in that they don't make you wait an eternity for them to finish speaking.

"Our...enemies...will...die...of...old...age...before...we...finish...speaking!"

The current Daleks have the ring modulator voice, but they are enjoyable rather than intolerable because they aren't only there to provide exposition at .5 miles per hour. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBSOhODoch0#t=18s

Here's a scene with the current Doctor and a Dalek. This one sounds a little different because its shell is heavily damaged.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTel5vVhYqQ

If you want to see the creatures inside the shell in the current incarnation, here's a scene with the Dalek emperor from 2005. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qpx3bi_kirM  They were still working on the Dalek voices in this one. I find the normal Daleks a bit grating, though the emperor's booming voice is kind of cool.
