First Images of The Daleks from the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Episode Unveiled

July 22nd, 2013 by Marc Comments

It wouldn’t be the 50th Anniversary special without The Doctors oldest foes popping up to cause mayhem, would it?  

Having been in the hit sci-fi series since its inception, the Daleks celebrate their own half century this year and will appear in the BBC1 show to mark the milestone.And these images – released by the BBC moments ago – show them in the middle of a brutal battle during the infamous Time War.

Show runner Steven Moffat said: ‘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.’

The episode, which is expected to be almost the length of a movie, will unite Matt Smith with his predecessor in the role of the Doctor, David Tennant, as they also encounter classic series enemies The Zygons.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
