Okay, so tomorrow (the 8th of December) will be 20 days away from the 50th anniversary of the Daleks’ first full appearance in Doctor Who (The Survivors - 28th December 1963) - technically it all began with The Mutants, on the 21st of December.
ANYWAY, to try and honour 50 years of the Daleks, the show’s greatest villains (in my opinion), in the midst of all the Time of the Doctor excitement, I decided to take a leaf out of the official Doctor Who tumblr’s book, and announce … the 20 DAY DALEK CHALLENGE!
Obviously, the Daleks aren’t the most positive thing to celebrate, but an important part of the Whoniverse, and, indeed, of popular culture, should be celebrated, don’t you think? Share your thoughts and have fun!
