I think the only oxymoron there is "normal people", since no one's really normal.
Posted today on the Doctor Who Facebook Page, under the folder name `Fresh from the set of Doctor Who`, with the description `Here are some sneaky pictures fresh from the set of Doctor Who where the Daleks are being wheeled before the cameras once again. But which design? The answer is ALL OF THEM!`
I thought that they might be doing a story where old and new Daleks fight each other, even since Moffat said that the Gold Daleks hadn't necessarily been killed off forever.
I loved the way he described the scene of apologising to Eva... "it's usually much more.. majestic!"
Really hope we get another Dalek civil war, would be more interesting than the Daleks having something else to deal with aside from the Doctor.
Alert. Alert. Extra Dalek Picture Detected.
Haven't posted it as an image since it isn't on any "official" sources... yet. But it's an exciting full reveal of one of the teaser images above.
Holy shit isn't that one of them really old Dalek designs they used in the original series?
I don't recognize it as the Progenitor Daleks from S5 or the Gold/Black ones from S18
I hope it's a 70s/80s Dalek, sort of gets my hopes up that the original Mondas Cybermen will return too.
I wonder if they just had an old Dalek in storage or they had to buy it or remake one?
I have thoughts that they just rebuilt it and just emptied some buckets of sand on it to look old, still going to be interesting to see how it might relate to Series 7, and hope it wont just be a cameo appearance as decoration or something
I think I know how Moffat will deal with Amy's character leaving, he'll make her into a weeping angel.
That way everybody lives
Why are these is spoiler tags. It's information from Moffat himself on Twitter. He's been tweeting the casts favourite daleks too. Apparently Matt, Karen and Arthur really love the 60's Dalek. Then he uploaded the picture.
The official Doctor who website has more pictures of the various designs of Daleks in close ups and announces the episode will feature ALL of the designs.
It's not regarded spoiler information by the BBC any more than 'Karen is leaving' so obviously it's something that will be hyped and to look forward to.
Infact people even posted the dalek pictures earlier, no need for the spoiler tags and secrets. It's all announced unless you get it from a non BBC source.
It looks awesome.
Notice the fake looking eye is missing, obviously as it's got no Dalek inside it. Unless they CGI a creepy realist eye on to it an it comes to life D: or they give it a light.
The picture dropped on April Fools. The conversation leading up to it and website announcement came before.
i have a question
if you saw the tardis door open as you were walking down the street, would you even think about rushing into it and looking for the doctor
provided you could tell your family later.
No thanks. The Doctor is pretty bossy when you think about it. It's everything HE wants to do. If I had a TARDIS to myself, great.
Toby Jones and JLC the only high points of Titanic once again, I see.
probably a dalek graveyard.
I'm going to nitpick but without any distaste in that the bottom of the dusky classic dalek is a more modern form, I recall the base being more round.
The girl is good in Titanic. Dead cute too.
What plot points are still left to be resolved. I can't be bothered rewatching the last two series to find out
Someone please remind me. There are quite a lot.
The ones that spring to my mind include the Silence's reason for trying to prevent the Doctor from reaching the Fields of Trenzelor, and why they're willing to jeapordise reality to ensure it doesn't happen.
In particular there's the influence that destroyed the TARDIS using cracks, and I dunno whether that influence was actually part of the Silence or just using them as a facade, convincing the Doctor to fight against them when the real enemy's actually somewhere on the sidelines, moving the chess-pieces, intending to sow chaos (or Chaos) throughout the universe.
Maybe it's the Trickster, or an entity like the Beast, or maybe even Omega, but regardless it's gonna be something big. Personally I think it might be the Trickster, working with the entrapped Carrionites to return the universe to the old ways of magic, which in itself would certainly sow unlimited chaos.
An example of such chaos I reference from the third novel of the "World of Watches" series of novels, pertaining to the chaos that would occur if all humans were Others. "You step on someone's foot in a tram, he curses at you; now he can incinerate you."
It would be like if everyone were born with a gun in their hand, or more appropriately a fireball. The carnage would probably be immeasurable until severe regulations are imposed by governments, and the Trickster would likely thrive off of the veritable reservior of chaos for a very long time. You can imagine why the Silence would want to stop this rebirth of ancient chaos, and why oblivion would seem to be better than limitless chaos.
That aside, I hope later seasons have more lasting effects instead of just a magic reset button to resolve things, like having the future of mankind genuinely change and have repercussions along the timeline, have the Doctor chased throughout the timestream by the Hounds of Tindalos. Example; Venice actually ended up as a colony for the Saturnynians, and the Mediterranean became the foundation for a "New Saturnyne", radically altering the course of human history, either with the Catholic Church commisioning a new "Templar Order" that acts as a medieval Torchwood (without all the sex) to hunt down the "demons of the sea", or indeed some sort of treaty being brokered with the refugees, with governments leasing out sections of the seas in exchange for advanced technology, kept secret as the toys of secret cabals until the time when mankind is ready for such tech.
Having a greater deal of chaos and altered timelines in Doctor Who would likely make it quite intriguing to see how the ripples of an altered past changes the course of history, instead of just dipping in carefully to our past and resolving any time-altering problems. With not every problem being resolved (some of them can still be changed), the universe could become a bit more chaotic, setting the stage for something big.
Series 7 will end with a Dalek coming out saying "I did it"
"What blew up my Tardis?"
"I did it"
And then The Doctor starts to cry but the Dalek gives him a hug and says he was only joking. Then the two laugh about how silly they've been and go grab a McDonalds.
I can't tell you my source, but trust me, it's all good. All the questions get answered. The Dalek sings for a bit too. It's sad.
Also Amy turns into a caravan. The Doctor can't turn her back. So Rory kills himself with a cinnamon overdose. :(
Moffat let me write the episode. He said he liked it. He put it on the fridge.
At least he didn't make the Doctor shit all over the Dalek.
In all seriousness though, obviously I wouldn't write that shit. The Doctor and Dalek and friends now :3
Uh, tempted to go over to Outpost Gallifrey and starts a Serious Fan Fiction thread to generate hype and then release something like that.
How has this not been posted?
ouch, the first few seconds hurt my ears.
(if you're watching something else with the volume to max with head phones, not to turn down the volume down a little)
I could not relax; I was laughing the whole way through.
That was amazing.
The video made it better. So simple, yet so amusing every time it cut back to a Dalek suddenly.
