Time War Daleks in 50th Anniversary! [UPDATED!]

As promised late on Sunday evening, the BBC has revealed a new image of the Daleks from the forthcoming 50th anniversary Doctor Who special!

Daleks in Doctor Who 50th anniversary special!The famous Dalek redesign from 2005 (known as the “RTD Dalek” or “Time War Dalek”) has perhaps proved to be the most iconic yet, so it seems fitting that this version of the deranged monsters from Skaro should appear, rather than their unpopular “Smartie Dalek” guise from 2010.

As the BBC excitedly announces (and who can blame them?!) the Doctors, Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt will battle the deadly Daleks in the show’s 50th anniversary special.

Returning to BBC One on 23 November the highly anticipated adventure will star: Matt Smith; Jenna Coleman; David Tennant; Billie Piper; John Hurt and Joanna Page.  In a surprise twist in the recent series finale it was revealed John Hurt would be playing a Doctor, alongside Smith and Tennant.

The Daleks are the second monster to be announced for the 50th and will join the shape shifting Zygons, which have only appeared in the show once before in 1975.

Says Steven Moffat:

The Doctor once said that you can judge a man by the quality of his enemies, so it’s fitting that for this very special episode, he should be facing the greatest enemies of all.

We’ll have more on the 50th anniversary and the trailer screened at SDCC later today…

More Dalek Images!
