"They survived through me," says a creepy voice. It's like a Dalek voice, but not neurotic, pretty deep. Kind of Bad Wolfy, actually. The Doctor turns around and suddenly a towering shape is lit up: A huge monster of a Dalek, that purple vomit guy inside a clear tank with a giant Dalek head dome on top and buttresses going up with those bumps on them. It sounds silly and I guess it should be. Maybe it's the way it's lit, but it is actually very scary and you don't really have time to think to yourself, "purple vomit with buttresses." The Doctor answers the Excellent Question nobody asked: "Rose, Captain. This is the Emperor of the Daleks." I was confused that the Doctor knew that, but there have been other Emperors, it turns out, and the Emperor doesn't actually call himself that at any point, because as expected, he calls himself "God." God explains that the Doctor's "inferno" did, in fact, take the Daleks out, but his ship survived the inferno and he lived and just went bouncing through time. Just like the other one. Who committed suicide. These are the options? Kill yourself or become God? Even purple vomits need mood stabilizers sometimes.
Well. The same thing happened to the Doctor, surviving and getting bounced around after the War, and we don't know for sure that he didn't do one or both at some point after that. I wonder what happened to the Eight Doctor? Lots of people have pointed out that his weird behavior at Rose's house the day they met might mean that he had just regenerated that day. I don't want to think about it. That's too much pain for anybody. The Doctor starts to tell Him that they get it, because they already went through it in 2012, and the other less-awesome Daleks freak on him not to interrupt. The Companions jump, but the Doctor's not having it: "I'm the Doctor. If there's one thing I can do, it's talk. I've got five billion languages, and you haven't got one way of stopping me. So if anybody's gonna shut up, it's you!" I don't necessarily understand the logic there, but I don't suppose you need to speak Doctor to translate it. The "fuck off some more" comes through pretty clear -- clear enough that that Daleks kind of shuffle back a little bit. He smiles back up at God: "Okey doke. So, where were we?"
