If there's one thing I trust Chibnall on it's that he will redesign things when they show up again. Maybe I'll be proven wrong soon!

Apparently this is the Dalek from the NY special. Itís a new style one, but painted silver with blue bumps like a Hartnell classic.



I...hate that a lot less than when they were yellow and red and poo poo?

I dunno. It's a step in the right direction, at least from a distance.

Latest rumblings are that the picture is actually fake, for what it's worth.

Iím more looking forward to an environmental story than a story about the Holocaust.

I don't think we're ready for "Scantily-Clad Weeping Angels"

In all honesty, most of the redesigns in the Whittaker season seemed competent to me. At most, some stuff was mildly questionable, but I'm certainly more confident that we won't see another misguided sexy take outside of the misguided sexy spin-off.

We've already had the special at this point, so I'm pretty sure everyone knows the picture has nothing to do with Whotaker.

Oh. I didn't check the dates. I thought I was replying to something recent about this years special. My bad.

Poor "Colors That Look Cool in B&W" Dalek never catches a break.

Here I was just about to tell you all to shut the hell up, and then you stopped talking so I didn't have to.

So the rumor is that they're doing Cybermen and Mary Shelley? Not sure how they could do that without stepping on the 8th Doctor audios, short of bringing back McGann.

It's a show about time travel, which had three different explanations for Atlantis in its original run. So the Eight and Mary Shelley stories happen, then something wibbles and wobbles to make them unhappen (maybe the Doctor gets another case of explosive amnesia that makes them forget it happening), and then the Thirteen and Mary Shelley story happens.

Or, despite their often high quality and rare reference within the television series itself the audios are ultimately just licenced merchandise that don't actually "count" and are going to get stepped on when the parent show wants to cover similar ground

Honestly I'm just holding out hope that they bring back McGann for a crossover at some point.

I'm absolutely always in favour of that! More televised McGann is always the dream. I just don't have a problem with Doctor Who doing things it's already done before because the show already has a history of contradicting itself and, y'know, time travel. And it's not like my download of The Silver Turk disappears if they do this in series 12 and it's no good.

Ideally we end up with two good, different takes on the "Doctor, Mary Shelley, and Cybermen" idea.
