We all love BBC‘s Doctor Who for its freewheeling stories, lovably nutty hero, and ability to be virtually any kind of story it puts its mind to being. Sometimes it feels completely random and arbitrary, but it has a lot of deep ideas embedded in its lore. From the 1960’s to the 1980’s, writers often […]
So let’s talk about Ace (Sophie Aldred), the Seventh Doctor’s companion (1987-1989) – because I really don’t get all the complaints about the current series of BBC‘s Doctor Who having too much politics. The series always had politics embedded at its core: virtually every Science Fiction, spy or crime TV series created in the UK in […]
Funko announces tons of new products and licenses every day, let alone every week. It can be a lot to keep up with. So we are here to help. Welcome to the Funko Round-Up! In this edition, we take a look at new Simpsons Pops, new Pop Pez, a new wave of Doctor Who Pops, […]
At a special advance screening of the Doctor Who New Year’s Special “Resolution”, showrunner Chris Chibnall revealed that it was the Doctor herself Jodie Whittaker who was responsible for a Dalek showing up this series. Many fans feel that a new Doctor only truly becomes the Doctor when they face the Daleks for the first time, […]
Most of you reading this are aware of Dr. Who. While I’m not a big Dr. Who fan (I’ve seen maybe a handful of episodes), I am a big pinball fan. Bally released this game into the wild in 1992, long after Dr. Who’s initial TV debut, and long before a new generation of Whovians […]
This past weekend I was lucky enough to come and spend a day at Re-Generation Who in Baltimore, MD. The three day event was filled with both classic and new Dr. Who, and of course a wonderful array of cosplay!
This is a Lalique Midnight Blue Mossi vase, being advertised on the back of a glossy magazine. But it does look rather familiar doesn’t it? Let’s make a quick change. Much better. Five days, folks… In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, […]
Anabel Martinez posted the above image comparison talking about artist Jeff Pina and Phoenix Comic Con’s decison to invite Paul Bradford to their show again this year, saying, Jeff’s original art on the top left. Bottom left was Paul Bradford’s theft of his art, which he made into a t-shirt to sell. When he was […]
Massive Audio has decided to do a little something in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. They are in the process of making a bluetooth speaker in the form of a Dalek. They say they are constructing the largest, loudest and most deadly portable Bluetooth speaker in the galaxy. They are calling it the […]
Daleks surrounded by flames. Maybe they have a fire extinguisher hidden on them somewhere.
Was £200. Although did anyone pay that? Now a much, much more reasonable price. An inflatable Dalek that you can ride around in. If you're of a certain age.
The most famous and enduring of Cusick's creations are the Daleks, which rank amongst the best bits of design in the history of television.
Back in the day when Russell T Davies was known for TV shows that didn’t involve aliens and spaceships, had himself a replica black Dalek made for his Manchester abode, referred to by some of his friends as his “gimp Dalek”, after the scene in Pulp Fiction. And for years he had to tell people […]
They’re coming back for the first episode of the next series, so Doctor Who Magazine is running a feature on EVERY DALEK EVER! And that’s what this cover promises, breathlessly. Come on then, who can list the missing ones? I’m sure somebody can.
I reckon somebody should have given the Daleks a feather duster extension so they could clean the cobwebs and dust off of each other. Surely these aren’t optimum operating conditions? Here’s a picture of Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and a retro-Dalek on the set of Doctor Who. This was tweeted by Steven Moffat. Moffat had […]
Last month, a comment on the Bleeding Cool forum seemed to be giving us good information on an upcoming episode of Doctor Who. It wasn’t possible to get an official confirmation or denial at the time, though the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine has just rolled off the presses and corroborates some of the […]
One of the BBC’s R&D labs has been showing off a novel new idea that might sell a truck load of toys. As you’ll see in these videos, they’ve used metadata in the the AV to rig a relationship between an off-the-shelf Dalek and an episode of Doctor Who. When the Extermination! begins on screen, […]
From the Winston-Salem Journal comes this charming story about an elderly fellow, Bill Johnson, who has discovered the image of Jesus in a tree limb that fell in his front yard. He believes it to be a “robed image of Jesus with an outstretched hand. The head is near the center of the limb where […]
