The Daleks appeared on screens in 1963. The first meeting with the doctor took place on their home planet. Fantastic creatures have become the worst enemies and rivals in the Time War – in many episodes it seems that the doctor has definitely won, but the Daleks appear again and again … Initially, they are shown in the form of rough tin boxes, but few people guess at the beginning that there is something inside living… It turns out that these are former scientists who became victims of radiation.

The holiday was founded in 1988 to honor the memory of the characters. Christmas holidays are ahead – which means that you will have time to watch the series! Yes, they frighten and terrify, but nevertheless they attract interest … One gets the feeling that the confrontation between the doctor and the Daleks lasts an eternity. Do you know or guess how it will end?

Interesting facts
