Comic Con: Matt says the Daleks are “scary again”
The metal monsters will be helping to kick off the new series in style when – in Asylum of the Daleks – the Doctor and his friends come face to face with every Dalek… ever. “We had to draw in every Dalek that’s ever been made around the world,” Matt told SFX at Comic Con. “We filled a room with them. It was incredible to be in a room with so many!”
He added: “We have even made them scary again, in a way we perhaps didn’t achieve with my first series. That’s really exciting. My favourite Dalek’s from the Troughton era.”
He goes on to discuss the next companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman, describing his new co-star as “wonderful” and “dedicated”. “Of course we will all miss Karen and Arthur, but the show is always evolving,” he explained. “Steven is writing for Jenna in an interesting and a very different way. With her help, the show will be bigger and better than before.”
He finished by promising us the 50th anniversary will be as “far-reaching” as possible.
