Daleks to Return in the 50th Anniversary Special

As is quite fitting the Daleks will be in the 50th Anniversary Special of Doctor Who, with the 10th and 11th Doctors, alongside the mysterious John Hurt Doctor.

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. The Daleks were one of the first monsters to terrify audiences in 1963, 50 years ago, cementing their place in British popular culture.

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, 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.”

I am pleased to see that they have abandoned the plastic Disco Daleks and have returned to the classic style, well updated classic style.
