new Doctor Who a video entitled “The Fourteenth Doctor Is Here” was filmed in preparation for The series returns on November 25. Published by official BBC Doctor Who Youtube account, a short video shows how the Doctor (in the fourteenth grade) first met Dalek and how fans might have started to fear Lekada instead. The clip was released within BBC Children in Need annual telethon.

The newly released clip, just over five minutes long, gives a fresh comedic look at how the Daleks got their name, all thanks to the Fourteenth Doctor. “It’s a Dalek”, Doctor (David Tennant) says shortly after he crashes his famous blue time-traveling TARDIS into what appears to be the mothership of the Imperial Daleks. Upon arrival, the TARDIS broke off a piece of Davros’ (Julian Bleach) body. Mark III road car (also called Doctor Genesis of the Daleks), whose goal was to ensure that the mutated Kaled race could “become stronger than ever!” Luckily, his sudden appearance is greeted with enthusiasm by Mr. Castillion (played by Mawaan Rizwan), who had previously struggled to come up with a decent name that was an anagram of Kaled. Judging by the clip, if Mr. Castallion had his way, fans would likely recognize the destructive cyborgs known as the Daleks. Lecads, Adlex, Claeds or Edlax. Of course, it turned out that this also depended on Davro’s taste. Unlike Mr. Castatillion, who took credit for the name, Tennant’s Doctor seems more relieved to have simply survived the encounter. “I’m lucky I wasn’t exterminated” (another term that Mr. Castatillion seems to have adopted.

While The Fourteenth Doctor unwittingly named the name of his future enemyhe is also canon now responsible for the piston an appendage given to the Daleks. “We will become the supreme race in the universe!” The Dalek talks about its creation, showing off the numerous weapons Davros created for it. These include the “bonded polycarbide shell”, “ruby beam blaster” and “a multifunctional claw capable of destroying a million tals.After his ill-timed landing cut short the latter, the Doctor had the foresight to replace the destructive appendage with an everyday piston from his TARDIS, which met with the approval of his nemesis. “I like it.”
