If, like us, you’re excited about the Doctor Who Time Lord Victorious event which kicked off last week with the latest issue of Doctor Who (review here), then this is going to get you all excited.

You can check all our coverage of the multi-media event covering books, audio adventures, merchandise and more here.

But now The BBC – touted to be bringing something to the story since the start – have finally revealed what they’re adding to to the tale and it’s actually pretty cool.

Yes, we’re getting Daleks! the animated mini-series which will have five 10-minute episodes of the CGI show debuting on The official Doctor Who Youtube Channel in November and will be a free, weekly outing.

The Daleks are taking over with their own animated series! The final, missing piece in Time Lord Victorious is announced today, with a five-part CGI animation launching in November this year.

The Dalek Empire comes up against a terrible force.

The Daleks’ plundering of the Archive of Islos unearths something ancient and deadly. Soon Skaro is under attack and the Dalek Emperor is on the run! Can the Daleks defeat their adversaries and regain their planet, even with help from an old enemy?

Will this be the end of the Daleks?

Written by James Goss and created by Salford-based animators Studio Liddell, Daleks! is a BBC Studios Digital production.

Daleks! will consist of five 10 minute episodes and will feature a star-studded voiceover cast with Nicholas Briggs (voice of the Daleks in Doctor Who) Joe Sugg (YouTube, Strictly Come Dancing), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard, The Sarah Jane Adventures) and Ayesha Antoine (Holby City).

This is a nice addition to the adventure and it’s nice that, unlike the rest, it won’t cost an arm and a leg. will you be watching? Let me know, gang.

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….
