The Daleks Take a Rest


It looks like Doctor Who won’t be facing his most famous adversary for a while as Steven Moffat confirmed to the BBC that they’re giving the Daleks a rest. He said that the Doctor has only defeated them “about 400 times”, and it was time to find less familiar and easy to defeat enemies:

“There’s a problem with the Daleks. They are the most famous of the Doctor’s adversaries and the most frequent, which means they are the most reliably defeatable enemies in the universe.”

He also addressed the concerns that the most recent episodes of Matt Smith run were too scary for children:

“It is horror, but horror for children. It’s scary in the way that a fairy story can be scary.”
