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, …

    I'm sure the under 14s will be most excited.

    I suppose...

    they will be the crappy new plasticy Lego Daleks rather than the original....

    1. The Metal Cod

      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.

    1. Cameron Colley

      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...

        ...but Tom Baker he ain't

          "...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.

    1. Daniel 1

      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....

      Last time I checked

      London was in the South East of England. Do keep up.

      1. Anonymous John

        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.

          Its not much better in the north

          Rare to get shows in Aberdeen

          Even Billy Connelly played one date and he live up here

      Not any more

      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"

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

    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.
