Strictly Come Dalek

In the UK we have a very popular BBC programme entitled: "Strictly Come Dancing". I don't watch it, but as I understand it, pairs of celebrity candidates volunteer to learn a new dance step sequence every week and a UK wide audience votes for those who remain and those who leave etc, until there is a final couple who win the competition. It's wildly popular but I think there could be an alternative programme that has similar rules, but with one main variation: the celebrity's dancing partners should be character monsters from the BBC's Doctor Who series.

Over several decades there have been numerous characters featured in this brilliant series, ranging from the Dark Angels, Cybermen, Zarbies, Mechanoids, to the notorious Daleks who lend their iconic name to the new dance floor challenge.

It will be up to the competitors to inventively choregraph a series of movements to music each week with their assigned creature. Latin, Foxtrot, Waltz, Quickstep, Pasodoble, Cha-cha-cha, Jive and Tango are amongst those that can be featured as the celebrities swirl their multi- legged or metal bodied monster around the dance floor.

       So in other words, an average episode of 'Dancing with the Stars...'

       What's amazing to me is that DWTS is now on its one- hundred-and-eighty-fifth fourteen-thousand-week season, fast approaching the point that every single person in the US will have appeared as a contestant on the, to use the parlance, show. In the same time, there has been, so far as I can tell, a single series of SCD, the cast swelling and then winnowing to near but never quite satisfactorily actually at zero before bulging again with the same - or so similar as to be functionally identical - semi-sleb faces, a tide going and out each and every Saturday evening, until eschaton and, who knows, beyond. What I like about Strictly Come Dalek is that it implies there will be an end, a complete and final destruction of this, the only light entertainment perpetuum mobile. What I don't like is that the implication cannot be carried to frutation (yes, frutation) by Dr Who-ery *precisely because* the Dr Who television programme operates on the same unceasing tidal return, each iteration dragged back to the start to continue the same fucking shite over and over again until

       <Googles "frutation"/>   

       <Reads down several pages of hits/>   

       We're still not convinced that "frutation" is a proper English word ...   

       <Decides to consult OED/>   

       We'll be back ...

       The crying angels dance would probably need to come with a strobe warning.
Or they could just dance to 4'33".

       What you need to consult, [8th], is the Scrabble Dictionary. It says that 'frutation' is not a valid word. [calum] therefore misses a turn.

       Yes, it's about time corbyn and his attendant swarm of loathsome little troglodytes were consigned to long-term residential care, or possibly an abbatoir.

       // [calum] therefore misses a turn //   

       In that case, we will go ... hmmm ... don't want to get in Nidd ... ah yes, Arnos Grove.   


       // Terminator Borg? //   

       Are you implying that we're destructive, psychopathic, monomaniacal cybernetic assassins ?   

       If you are, then you're quite right.
