Classic Daleks Assemble for Doctor Who Series 7!

Some interesting photos have emerged to add weight to this week’s rumours that the next series of Doctor Who will feature all (or most of) the types of Daleks there have ever been. This includes the ‘classic’ Daleks as seen in the 1960s serials, all the way through to Steven Moffat’s ‘Smartie Daleks’.

A classic era Dalek in pieces

The first picture is what looks to be a Genesis Of The Daleks era Dalek – notice the grey base and black hemispheres (not “etheric beam locators” – Ed?). This picture came from  a chap called Andrew C. Smith on The Twitter.

Executive Producer Caro Skinner+Dalek

The second picture is from new Executive Producer Caro Skinner’s Twitter feed, in which she says that Russell T. Davies’ Dalek has arrived on set. Then she shows us a picture of a Dalek that has nothing to do with Davies’ era (not even Dalek Sec – the eye-stalk is too small) although there is a similarity between the two.

These pictures, combined with the publicity shot we’ve already seen of Matt Smith’s Doctor and Karen Gillan’s Amy Pond posing with a classic-style Dalek. One hopes they will use all these Daleks being in the one place to take them to London (bit of a trek from Cardiff, I know) and recreate the famous shot from The Dalek Invasion Of Earth.

I’m sure any Doctor Who fan worth their salt is already getting excited about the thought of so many Daleks in one place. Unless they’re trying to destroy the universe. Again.
