The Daleks were originally conceived of as a version of the Nazis. Their stilted, shouted speech patterns were based on British stereotypes of the way German soldiers spoke, and their agenda of hatefully trying to eradicate those that they saw as racially impure reflected Nazi motivations from World War II. Try not to think about that when you're making Mini Chocolate Dalek Cakes out of marshmallows and almond bark. That's cognitive dissonance you just don't need.
