Better Off Dalek

We haven’t seen any serious Dalek news around for a while now – save the obvious appearances of two very different pepper pots in the recent trailer for the 2010 series – but it seems they haven’t been completely out of sight since the Doctor-Donna vanquished them in Journey’s End.

A recent appearance in US TV sitcom Better off Ted has brought a bit of new attention to theDaleks, as seen in a clip available to US viewers only at GeeksOfDoom.com.

Episode 5 of the second season shows two scientists heading down to the basement of their building where they discover all the discarded robots that have been disassembled for parts. The scene has an intentional pause outlining the entire room which reveals a Dalek — the ruthless killing robotic drones from the Doctor Who television series.
