A Whoniverse without Genesis of the Daleks would be a boring one. In fact, most of Doctor Who’s mythos wouldn’t have been spawned without this master-class story. As a long-time fan of the Daleks, I have a particular love for everything about Genesis. Apart from the the fact that it marks the first ever appearance of the evil, maniacal, Machiavellian Kaled cyborg genius that we all know and love as Davros, the adventure has been marked as the greatest Doctor Who serial of all time, possibly on the account of its brilliance as a major story. For the uninitiated who aren’t familiar or with it or have yet to see it, you should be able to understand why it gains the exposure it gets.

From the trailer for Doctor Who Series 7
Because everyone seems to like “The Lonely God”, I thought I’d post a few more from that series, which I called “Scenes that Never Happened.” Basically, I wanted to create images around which scenes could be built (and a few of them I did indeed take and build a story around later). These were all done with ink and marker and then touched up in Photoshop.
The fiendishly clever script is packed with Moffat’s trademark dazzling wordplay and several guffaw-out-loud gags, while there are two scenes that will have viewers sniffling on their sofas. Best of all, the story makes the Doctor’s pepperpotty arch enemies truly scary again and contains several killer twists.
Elsewhere, the opening credit sequence has been subtly tweaked and although there’s no mention of “timey-wimey”, there is an “explodey-wodey”. Back with a bang indeed.
Most of these images you have probably seen if you’ve watched the Doctor Who Series 7 Launch Trailer but they’ve just been released embiggened by the BBC.
There are more images posted to the Doctor Who Tumblr so come by to see the rest.
When Steven Moffat said that each episode would feel like a mini movie, he wasn’t kidding.
If you’re clever (and we know you are) you may figure out what’s going on in these temptingly awesome yet spoilery pics from the first three episodes of Doctor Who Series 7.
We’ve hidden them behind a ‘Read More’ so click through if you’d like to see them.
If you’d like to see the other new photos released today including the main art of The Doctor, Amy, and Rory from Series 7 Episode 1 and the amazing movie-like poster image for Asylum of The Daleks, visit the Doctor Who Tumblr page.
Coming this fall to BBC America, BBC One, and SPACE
Here’s the description:
The image shows Amy Pond being carried by an injured, grim-faced Doctor. They’re both surrounded by Daleks that have been encountered during different eras of the Time Lord’s travels.
A Dalek on the right of the picture does not have any of the vertical grille-like slats that have become a familiar feature, indicating it’s a version the Doctor faced when he first met his oldest enemies on Skaro. And on the left there’s a Special Weapons Dalek, last seen in the 1988 story, Remembrance of the Daleks.
It’s a fiery and exciting sign of what’s to come in the new series!
We also have the launch trailer for Series 7 coming in six hours so tuck this blog away in its own tab and come back at 6am UK time/1am EDT/10pm PDT
KAZ. OMG KAZ.
Success! I finally got one! Thanks, BBC America. I should take a picture of all my Doctor Who stuff I got this year. ;)
Starting Thursday, swing by the BBC America booth (#3629) at San Diego Comic-Con to say hello (because we’re nice) and grab a free Dalek foam hat!
Modeled here for us by the fine folks from the BBC America Shop (See? Didn’t we tell you that they were good sports?) the Dalek foam hat is adjustable, lightweight and designed to fit the head of everyone including Sontarans.
Seriously, you should get one of these hats especially if you plan on attending Sunday’s Doctor Who panel in Hall H. How awesome would it be if Matt, Karen, Arthur, Steven, and Carol got on stage to find themselves staring down a sea of (foam) Daleks?
Seriously. This is something we all need to do.
I’ve renamed my car “The Void Ship.”
YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT MY CAR COULD DEFEAT YOU WITH ONLY ONE DALEK.
