Vote Dalek Again!

The new Radio Times revisits a recent cover classic as the Daleks return to Doctor Who – Vote Dalek!

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 (note that other political parties are available – Ed).

Also in this week’s Radio Times:

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 Jon 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.”

The Radio Times is out today, priced £1.10, and provides TV and radio listings for the week April 17th – 23rd.

Meanwhile, the Radio Times website has some alternative images of these new Daleks… and if you want to know just how far the Doctor Who/politics connection goes this year, check out the recent Labour party political broadcast starring Sean (son of Jon) Pertwee and David Tennant…
