To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Dalek the sixth episode of the revived first series of Doctor Who, the team behind #DoctorWhoLockdown have created a prequel to the events of the episode.
This video was specially created as a prequel to the Doctor Who episode Dalek, released as part of #TheMetalron worldwide tweetalong.
Since the COVID-19 lockdown Emily Cook has been instrumental in many Doctor Who related tweet-a-longs featuring the cast and crew sharing their thoughts and behind the scenes info as well as new stories being released including the Rose prequel, sequel (to coincide with NuWho’s 15th anniversary) and the final Sarah Jane adventure.
Under the banner #DoctorWhoLockdown the aim is to bring fans around the world together during the current lockdown through their shared love of Doctor Who.
This release also coincides with another tweet-a-long, on Thursday 30 April 2020, the 15th anniversary of this episode’s first broadcast.
This episode is the first appearance of the Daleks in the 21st-century revival of Doctor Who; it also marks the first appearance of Bruno Langley as companion Adam Mitchell.
The episode is set in Utah in the year 2012, in the underground bunker owned by Henry van Statten (Corey Johnson), a rich collector of alien artefacts. In the episode, the alien time traveller the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) and his travelling companion Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) encounter the bunker’s only living exhibit: a Dalek, which breaks loose and proceeds to start killing everyone in the bunker after repairing itself.
