Last week’s Doctor Who season premiere was in some ways just a placeholder. Regardless of what the storyline was, a good deal of the attention was inevitably going to be focused on simply giving the audience a chance to get used to the new guy carrying the TARDIS keys. Even showrunner Steven Moffat has admitted he wanted “a quite simple menace” for the premiere so most of the focus could be on the turmoil between the Doctor and Clara. With this week’s episode, however, the show should be hitting full steam, with the Doctor and Clara facing off against the Daleks. Yes, again. At this point, we’ve seen the screaming bastards so often that I’m sure I’m not the only ones suffering Dalek fatigue, so it begs the question: are there any more interesting Dalek stories to tell? A pair of newly released Who clips hint at the answer.
