Coming soon to a theater near me ...

... the story is talked about with hushed reverence by fans today
[not to mention critical analysts like Dr. Sandifer, whose take on the story sparked my intrigue -- cm] with a particular frisson emerging from the fact that the Daleks are pretending to be meek servants in a human colony on the Planet Vulcan. Their creepy chant of “I am your servant” is one of the great coups de theatre from the early days.
The "I am your servant" line is featured in a weaker installment of the new series, am genuinely eager to see the story that inspired it.
