Seek! Locate! Exterminate!

Yesterday, the BBC announced who’ll be playing the Twelfth Doctor. While I’ve appreciated both David Tennant and Matt Smith, I’m looking forward to seeing what Steven Moffatt and team will do with an older Doctor. And as amusing as the olive-drab Daleks were in the service of Churchill during World War II, I didn’t really like the primary-color Daleks introduced in the same “Victory of the Daleks” storyline. Perhaps we’ll also see a return to some of the classic villain designs from earlier series.

Speaking of older Doctors and more-classic Daleks, though, Steve (LegoAvon) has built a trio of menacing Daleks in the classic dark gray of the 1970’s.

    I can’t believe I’ve never seen this guy’s work before. These are awesomely detailed and instantly recognizable.

    I kinda like the colors of the new paradigm Daleks, but the originals will always be the best.

    These are even better than Steve’s 2005’s version of the Daleks, although those are fantastic, too.
    It’s a pitty there is no profile shot, hopefully Steve will add one.

    I also don’t like the new Teletubby-Daleks. It’s interesting to see how Moffat avoided to show them after their introduction. Maybe he realised that it wasn’t his best idea.

    Andrew, thank you for the spoiler-free information about the new Doctor. It was good not to mention the actor’s name. I know him already, but I bet there are fans who want to be surprised.
