If you’ve not seen the Victory of the Daleks and don’t want spoilers then – look away now.
Right; the rest of us can speculate as to whether we’ll see a Doctor Who episode that puts the spotlight on the Eternal Dalek?
In Victory of the Daleks we saw a new generation of pure Daleks. They were strong colours and each had a role.
There was the;
- White Supreme Dalek
- Red Drone Dalek
- Yellow Eternal Dalek
- Blue Strategist Dalek
- Orange Scientist Dalek
We know what those roles will be for the most. Mark Gatiss looks cheeky and says, “Who knows?” in relation to (we assume) the Eternal Dalek.
Steven Moffat says the name sounds important and in Doctor Who Confidenatial he bets us that it will be really important. It was also Steven Moffat who created the Eternal Dalek, suggesting the name to Gatiss. In other words; the Eternal Dalek was added to the script by the lead writer.
So what do you think? How important will the Eternal Dalek be in the future?
What do you think the role will be?
