Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways

Hmmm… 200,000 years in the future, and reality TV is still going strong? Humans still haven’t evolved into something more advanced? And still wear 20th century clothing? And fight Daleks with bullets? Where are the laser guns? You know, just

Dalek

This is the story I wanted to see ever since I read about it, and the only one I couldn’t resist spoilers on. I went and read reviews by fellow fans months ago, as well as watching the Doctor Who
