People are still "banging on" about the new Daleks not being scary looking anymore, I've NEVER found Daleks to be "scary looking" even when I was a Kid!
Daleks are scary because of what they are capable of not because of what they look like!
Is it just possible that people are so old and jaded new ideas/designs lose their impact on them.
Or maybe they have no joy left in their cold, dead, imaginations . . . .
