back to article Daleks poised to invade tour UK

Fans of Doctor Who will later this year be able to enjoy Doctor Who Live - the arena manifestation of the BBC hit which promises "the same excitement, adventure and suspense that viewers have come to expect from the TV programme". The blurb explains: "Opening in wartime London and concluding in an epic onstage battle, audiences …

Not impressed

These new Daleks look like they should come from a Renault showroom.

not Renault

BMW. Very similar makeover for the daleks to what BMW did to the mini. Classic iconic design pointlessly reworked and made too big.

Or maybe they're Apple daleks. I thought the lineup of one of each colour looked like a launch photo for the iPod nano - look how many different colours there are.

Beer - something else where change isn't needed.

pointless title

Matt Smith not appearing is definitely in the shows favour, so glad about that.

What we really need to know though: is Karen Gillan going to make an appearance?? If she does, I might just go along.

My thoughts almost exactly.

The only guest on Graham Norton who had me glued to the screen.

If you don't want him, no worries, there's plenty of us out there who do.

Matt Smith is okay...

Re: Matt Smith is okay...

"...but Tom baker he ain't"

Nobody's ever going to beat Tom, but Matt imho completely inhabits the role in a way that none of the intervening actors have managed. Like Tom, his quirky performance can make even the dull stories very watchable. Great chemistry with K.Gillan too, evidently both on and off screen judging from the interview tapes they did recently.

Now we just need a change of composer. Some really nice acting from the leads was completely ruined by the over-the-top score in the recent vampire ep.

What about the South East of England?

Wembley is nearest to me, but still nearly three hours away.

Didn't anyone tell you?

By then, the Sontarans will have turned the whole of the South East of England into an empty radioactive wasteland, which - although devoid of all life - will look strangely appealing to those in the pottery and brick-making trades.

You're lucky....

I live in East Anglia - fat chance of it ever coming my way - if it did, it would probably get stuck in a tractor rut on the A11 and, during the halt, would end up with chickens roosting in the new lego daleks....

Keeping up.

I live on the Coast, some 90 minutes south of Victoria. Underground to cross London, then another train to Wembley. Not really practical to get back from an evening show.

Beer because most of the passengers on late night trains are probably pissed.

He hates the new Daleks - as he calls them the "new, shower gel things" - I think he'd be dead against it now!

My, what a load of whinging....

....anyone would think you aren't capable of controlling your own lives to the simple point of choosing where to live.

If you don't like where you are, move. Even amoeba manage that, and they are *way* dumber than humans. Mostly.

We need the favourite Dalek "add-on"

Katy Manning.

Relax, the problem you're thinking of would be sorted with a bit of time travel.

Oods? Really? Oods?

<pedantic rant>Surely if they are "The Ood" then the plural of Ood is Ood, is it not? They need to sort their press releases out.</pedantic rant>

Hey, I'm ready

All I've got to say is, if I see a Dalek, I'm hitting it with all the heavy artillery I can beg, buy, or steal. If it turns out to be a fake or a guy in a box, that's too damn bad. I'm not taking any chances.
