The Daleks are back – but something’s changed

The Daleks are back in Doctor Who, but something’s changed

The Daleks are back in Doctor Who, but something’s changed.

The new look Daleks were exclusively revealed on the Radio Times website, you can see a whole host of images on their site Here.

BBC newsbeat also have a few new images from Victory of the Daleks Here

Coming this Saturday from The Doctor Who Site – Victory of the Daleks – The Game…

In this week’s Radio Times:

Election fever has reached Radio Times: The Daleks are back in technicolour and this week’s Radio Times has three different Dalek covers – red, blue and yellow, like the three main political parties.

Writer Mark Gatiss explains his fascination with Daleks and explores their timeless appeal.

Plus, Radio Times takes an exclusive first look into the BBC’s online archive to find out its top Doctor Who secrets

An online BBC Archive project allows the first ever access to audience research reports on previous Time Lords from John Pertwee to Sylvester McCoy. Radio Times went to find out more.

And an interview with Gordon Brown including a quickfire round of questions about topics such as Doctor Who:

Hamlet, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet?

“Hamlet [with David Tennant]. I saw it recently.”

John Pertwee, Tom Baker, David Tennant or Matt Smith?

“I think you know what I’m going to say here. Yes. David Tennant is the best.”

    Oh, and by the way everyone, the Daleks that have been coloured Yellow, Blue and Red aren’t actually going to be used in the episode. It will only be the white that will be used. They have been coloured Yellow, Blue and Red because of the General Election. Yellow for Liberal Democrats, Blue for Conservatives and Red for Labour. IT IS JUST THE WHITE ONE!

    does that mean lots of dalek action figures like different colours and army one maybe the gold one seen in screen shots =]

    you need to wait till you see them in action, i have heard the story is brilliant.

    Hm, interesting… Not a completely radical redesign, but then the Daleks are one of those icons from the show you wouldn’t want to tamper with too much.

    And to those who’ve complained, yes you can have your opinion, but stop to think a minute first.
    A) The redesign could from a practical standpoint, give the operator inside more room.
    B) This could be a one story deal and we never see these Daleks again. We just don’t know yet.

    It certainly doesn’t merit a reaction like ‘Ugh, it’s ruined and I’m never watching again.’

    NOOOOO please no, I HATE them. They are tacky, nasty and not nice at all. I have loved the daleks with a passion since I can remember, and now they just died.

    I think we need to wait and see them on screen, I think they are going to look awesome in action.

    I wouldn’t say they are too bad, the back sticking out is a bit odd but everything in the show is changing, so this is just a futuristic impression on Doctor Who. I like it.

    Ergh! They’ve got hunchbacks! Why stray so far from an excellent design?

    I really wish there had been kept under wraps until the episode airs – unless there is something even bigger we don’t know about

  • SL

    April 12th, 2010 - 4:16pm

    They look a bit tacky.. 🙁 I was expecting great things from Victory but to included daleks that look like they have been made on Blue Peter is a gigantic let down, I hope they appear better on screen

  • The New Daleks

    April 12th, 2010 - 4:13pm

    Oh my, there is a blue one red one white one and a yellow one, they are totally different

  • the 1st doctor

    April 12th, 2010 - 4:08pm

    The colour schemes remind me of The Movie Daleks from ‘Dr Who and The Daleks’

  • James

    April 12th, 2010 - 3:11pm

    I cant wait to see them. this all sound awesome

  • AlphaOmega

    April 12th, 2010 - 3:08pm

    In the words of the Daleks themselves:

    “What is hap-pen-ing!?”

  • Davros the 4th

    April 12th, 2010 - 3:06pm

    Does this mean we are going to get to see the new Daleks?
