Order of the Daleks

Let’s listen to the Doctor battle some beautiful stained glass Daleks.

In the Galactic Census, idyllic Strellin is recorded as a Grade Three planet – its inhabitants possessing neither advanced technology, nor knowledge of other worlds. Accordingly, Strellin is protected: landings by off-worlders are strictly prohibited. Unless, of course, those off-worlders are officials of the Galactic Census itself, come to investigate the origin of a mysterious sub-space signal – a signal no native of Strellin should be able to send…

Breaking all local by-laws, the time-travelling Doctor and his companion L/Wren Mrs Constance Clarke (AWOL) have only just landed on Strellin, too. But they and the Census officials aren’t the only off-worlders to have come here. Inside a nearby monastery, the monks of the reclusive Brotherhood of the Black Petal are guarding a strange and terrible secret. Something that might bring disaster not just to Strellin, but to every civilised world in the galaxy!

Directed by Jamie Anderson, written by Mike Tucker. Cast: Colin Baker (The Doctor), Miranda Raison (Constance Clarke), John Savident (Pendle), Olivia Hallinan (Asta), Robbie Stevens (Boswyck/Raspak), Sam Fletcher (Rosco/Gabber), Joseph Kloska (Habrild), and Nicholas Briggs (Tanapal and The Daleks). Other parts portrayed by members of the cast.

Davros, creator of the Daleks

June 2016 was Davros’s #‎MonsterMonth – the creator of the Daleks! Talented animator Tom Saunders created the following video based on the exclusive wallpaper from Tom Webster.

Who Is Davros? Let’s find out what TARDIS knows about the creator of the Daleks in the Index Files.

The fan show tried a Davros review: Christel Dee and Luke Spillane talk about him.

War Doctor trailer – only the monstrous

“At the heart of the battle, where the blood of the innocents flow, and only the monstrous survive…” This is new trailer from Only The Monstrous, the Big Finish audio drama that hopes to flesh out those years where the Doctor went to war, regenerating into great actor John Hurt.

There are three new battles for The War Doctor!

1.1 The Innocent

As the Daleks mass their time fleet for a final assault on Gallifrey, something ancient is waiting for them at Omega One. And a sacrifice must be made.

Arch-manipulator and Time Lord strategist, Cardinal Ollistra receives shock news of the Doctor’s death.

Meanwhile, on the planet Keska, a parochial war has returned to plague a peaceful civilisation after decades of tranquillity. But how can such a war have any connection with the great Time War which, at any one moment in the whole of eternity, could threaten to tear the universe apart?

If only the Doctor were still alive.

1.2 The Thousand Worlds

With the high-ranking Time Lord Seratrix behind enemy lines, the War Doctor finds himself assigned to a rescue mission. But any room for manoeuvre is severely restricted by an area of space known as the Null Zone.

Times have changed on Keska, and a countdown to destruction is beginning.

But who are the Taalyens and what is their part in the great and terrifying Dalek plan?

1.3 The Heart of the Battle

Trapped in a citadel swarming with Daleks, the Time Lord rescue force must find a way to overcome insurmountable odds. With the Daleks apparently planning to rule the Null Zone, perhaps their thirst for universal conquest and victory has been quenched…

The War Doctor doesn’t believe so — but how can he prove it without destroying any chance of peace?

As the countdown to the destruction of Keska proceeds, a deadly choice must be made… A choice that will define this Doctor, and perhaps forever cast him in the role of ‘monster’.

Written and directed by Nicholas Briggs, video & animation by Tom Saunders, 3D model work by: Chris Thompson, musical score by Howard Carter.

Cast: John Hurt (The War Doctor), Jacqueline Pearce (Cardinal Ollistra), Lucy Briggs-Owen (The Nursemaid), Carolyn Seymour (The Slave), Beth Chalmers (Veklin), Alex Wyndham (Seratrix), Kieran Hodgson (Bennus), Barnaby Edwards (Arverton), Mark McDonnell (Traanus), John Banks (Garv) and Nicholas Briggs as The Daleks.

Producer David Richardson, script editor Matt Fitton, Executive Producers Jason Haigh-Ellery and Nicholas Briggs.

Daleks invade Sesame street, but the Doctor will be also there

The greatest number lover’s convention is coming to Sesame Street this year! It’s the upcoming Numeric Con episode… a brilliant parody of Comic Con (with an educational twist, of course) that features Sesame  Street characters like Elmo dressed up as comic book and sci-fi heroes like Princess Leia and Batman (‘The Dark Nine’).

Tom Baker’s Doctor will be there also, the Tardis and some suspiciously Dalek-shaped creatures screeching “Enumerate”. Also Wolverine (‘Fiverine’) from the X-Men, Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons and a perfect impression of William Shatner as Captain Kirk.

Doctor Who Christmas Special 2013: The first TV teaser trailer

We’ve just watch The day of the Doctor, with great delight, of course, and the first glimpse of this year’s Christmas special were made available by BBC. We’ll have Cybermen, Weeping Angels and Daleks…

In the Time of the Doctor we follow Clara and the Time Lord to a quiet backwater planet in order to learn what some strange signals mean for his very existence. It’s midnight. It’s snowing. It’s Christmas. But there is nothing festive about The Doctor’s expression.

There’s a little more to learn from the 10-second teaser trailer. The Christmas episode, is the Matt Smith’s final appearance as The Doctor, and we will see the time-travellers return to Trenzalore, the site of the Doctor’s tomb and the place The Silents never wanted him to go…

And the Silence will fall…

All the Daleks in existence

Some time ago BBC was searching for all the Daleks known to man… At that time I knew that something was happening, but I was not sure what and when. I knew, of course, that something BIG was happening, as usual when the Doctor is involved… but I had to watch the Asylum of the Daleks to find out exactly what: the Parliament of the Daleks. And, why not, the Prime Minister. Of the Daleks.

Some time ago, today, I found about the effort made to reunite every Dalek ever made… I don’t think it was all hard work, it must have been some fun some times along the way, but it’s interesting to find out more details about the job.

“It’s only when I read Steven Moffat’s script in its entirety that I thought: ‘Oh God, what are we going to do now?’” said series producer Marcus Wilson, who was tasked with the logistical nightmare of assembling Asylum Of The Dalek‘s pepper-pot party — most of which they didn’t even own.

“We needed help,” he said. “We called them back from the BBC, borrowed older ones from exhibitions, renovated a few that have been battle damaged over the years. A lot of the show came to be, however, from fans who lent us Daleks that they had built themselves — most of which were so detailed we could shoot on them in HD close to camera. Even [former show-runner] Russell T. Davies has a Dalek in his hallway, so we went up to Manchester to pick it up from him. We must have had over 30 different Daleks on set and we only had around five of our own.”

The two main sequences that required numbers was the Asylum (spoilers!) and the more grandiose Parliament scene, which features a CGI wide-shot with 20,000 Daleks — powered by Solid Angle’s rendering software, Arnold, a batch renderer that allows you to animate “render multiples and multiples of Daleks that maybe even a year ago we wouldn’t have been able to achieve on a television schedule.”

More information about how the Daleks and their CGI image have been used can be found here.

Episode 1, Asylum of the Daleks

You know about the hate between the Doctor and the Daleks, right? You might never believe that the Parliament of the Daleks would ask the Doctor to save them, but that happened in the first episode of the series 7.

The Asylum of the Daleks, the place where all the insane and the uncontrollable of the Daleks had been sent for ages. The place where the “normal” Daleks were so afraid to go they had to send their Nemesis in order to find out about the strange signal being send from there. The place where a spaceship penetrated the force field surrounding the planete and crashed on the surface, where a beautiful girl-junior entertainments manager was hiding out for an year in the wrecked spaceship hacking the most advanced warrior race the universe has ever known.

Finally, the place were we all meet the future Doctor’s companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman. Surprise! You were wrong to expect to meet her after Amy and Rory’s departure in the fifth episode… but that’s the beauty of the time travel: you don’t always meet in the same order. Remember the Doctor’s and River Song’s story. It’s too fast to say if the new companion’s story is going to happen the same, but the expectations to watch as it happens are GREAT!

Have you watch the episode? Than you already know the story. If you haven’t yet watch it you should know that the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams were kidnapped and taken to the Parliament of the Daleks. In order to save the Daleks (and themselves), they were send to the Asylum of the Daleks to stop the force field surrounding the planet in order to be purged by the Daleks from the spaceship from the orbit.

They had help from the brilliant girl hiding on the surface, and the Doctor decided to try and save her also. And… that’s all what I am going to say. I don’t want to spoil the surprise for the people that haven’t watch the episode. It’s a great story, I enjoyed watching it.

Interesting clocks inspired by Doctor Who, isn’t it.  They were created using Adobe Illustrator, meant for laser cutting 1/8″ acrylic plastic to make Doctor Who clocks.

Each clock is made out of multiple (often 2) layers of plastic glue together. So if you want to try making a tardis clock. Cut tardis-blue.ai on blue acrylic, cut tardis-white.ai on white acrylic, and glue them together.

BBC is searching for all the Daleks known to man

As posted on Metro.co.uk, doctor Who producers have issued a worldwide appeal to borrow back Daleks that have been sold off for the series 7 of Doctor Who.

They require some of the ‘real’ aliens for Season 7, rather than use CGI versions of the metal-encased antagonists.

Executive producer Caroline Skinner explained: ‘We’re collecting every Dalek known to man. It’s going to be great.’

Caroline took to her twitter account to confirm one of the Daleks has already been successfully recruited – Russell T Dalek, which is owned by former Doctor Who screenwriter Russell T. Davies.

She added: ‘Russell T Davies’ Dalek has arrived on set – I’m talking her through her part! (sic)’

Doctor Who – Å¢ara nimănui

Desenele astea animante sînt o parodie a lui Doctor Who în România, nici măcar el nu pare capabil să o salveze de problemele pe care le are cu corupţia, hoţia şi nepotismul (cunoscute şi ca Daleks). A fost chemat de însuşi Dracula.

 

This cartoon is a parody of Doctor Who in Romania, not even he can save the country from its problems with corruption, theft and nepotism (also know as Daleks). He was called by Dracula itself.
