And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life

Inside the Doctor’s mind, the Dalek sees divine beauty in the universe, which okay, sure, no one ever said he negged a nebula, and then…hatred. For the Daleks in particular, but just like…hatred in general. The Doctor was full of hate, and the Dalek imprinted on that.
The Doctor was dismayed, and I was delighted—because he is the most hateful little creature now, and the narrative actually called it out.
The best moment of the episode was when the Doctor, dismayed, says to the Dalek, “You looked inside me and you saw hatred. That’s not a victory. Victory would have been a good Dalek.” And the Dalek says, “I am not a good Dalek…You are a good Dalek.”
That line right there had me, honestly. There’s still something very WRONG with this Doctor, something sick and hateful, but it…it gave me hope that maybe there’s a reason for it, maybe it will be addressed?
I’m sort of scared to hope.
