Over at Room 101 (which can be found at Tim Binnall’s Binnall of America) Richard Thomas gives his countdown on the Top 10 alien bad guys – in the world of sci-fi.
Here’s the link.
Richard’s Number One goes to the wrinkly Davros (who looks remarkably like one of my old school-teachers who we nicknamed Davros at the time) and his Pepper-Pot-style Daleks, about who Richard says:
“The post of supreme alien bad guys has to go to Davros and his ultimate achievement the Daleks. Brilliant but utterly lacking in conscience, without soul or pity, the mutant madman Davros created the Daleks in his own image. Programmed to “conquer and destroy” all other forms of life the metal monsters soon turned on their creator though and thus began their ethnic cleansing of the Universe.
“Together, Davros and the Daleks are the ultimate Who allegory for evil. The only two Who villains to consistently have the Doctor on the ropes. The Dalek’s conquering Earth not once but twice (at least) and even being responsible for the deaths of two of the Doctor’s on screen companions. Not to mention the near extinction of the Doctor’s own people the Time Lords.”
