Finished Innocence, first ep of I, Davros. A combination of I, Claudius and Doctor Who, so of course something of great interest to me. Turns out Davros is literally a bastard. Good start to showing how Davros becomes slayer of his own people and creator of the Daleks. And variety of interesting characters, from his calculating mother Calcula, the Livia of this story, to his tutor Magrantine, who ends up becoming an experiment. And I like the performance of Davros, as a creepy child who takes deaths casually and comes up with the idea of using wounded Kaleds as experiments. High hopes for next ep.
