I love Dalek's. They are cute and comical.
But I found this really unsettling.

I have the giggles. That's a sort of relaxing isn't it?

LOOK AROUND YOU.

LOOK AROUND YOU.

CAN YOU TELL WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR?

WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE DOCTOR. HE WILL BE EXTERMINATED.

The timing is just perfect. The way the Dalek's injunctions to relax keep coming just a half-beat too soon, putting you even more on edge.... That's damned fine editing.

When I start writing for Doctor Who, my first episode is going to be titled WARDANCE OF THE DALEKS.

Just picture it.

OHHH.

Imagine some future where the Doctor shows up and the Daleks have all been converted to espresso machines. No danger any longer. Nothing to see here, move along.

Cats can also help you relax. Daleks love cats.

Daleks are up there with Cthulhu in terms of horrifying beings who, for some reason, it's easy to make jokes about.

For example: An entry in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on "Dalek"

I've actually had that for my ringtone. It was actually freaking people out, so I had to change it...

Look, people- I don't like this any more than you do, but somebody had to do it.

Hearing this on Peter Serafinowicz's podcast almost had me doubling up in the sauces aisle of Tesco. Almost as good as the T-WOG$.

This kept me up for ages last night. I was laughing, but it's still the least relaxing thing I have ever heard.

Googling "Peter Serafinowicz's podcast" only turned up the 2009 Radio Spiritworld and a temporary stint on "Joy of 6". More info, plz! Thx.

Nope. Too British.

Sorry. Appreciate the effort. But not a clue there.

That's the one. Experience the Joy of 6.

Nope. Too British.

Irish, actually. Maybe watching Terry Wogan hosting Never Mind the Buzzcocks will help? He's a gentle, cardigan-wearing sort of fellow, not known for his love of the dubstep.

Oh God. I had trouble sleeping last night so I tried what I usually do -- deep breaths and focusing on breathing -- and all I could hear in my head was 'INHALE -- CALM...... EXHALE -- RELAX!!'

I just came home from a terrifically shitty day in what's been a pretty shitty week. I was a ball of tension, so stressed I could barely eat dinner. And um, I knew what I had to do. I just listened to this five times in a row. Is it a bad sign that I found it therapeutic?

Make that six. Annnnd seven. Probably a bad sign. eight
