Ooo, This Isn't Very Nice Of Me At All

With my last Doctor Who post, mornblade said he wanted some of the Dalek pics that I mentioned.  I told him the pics were all extreme close-ups, no real details (the plunger, the bumps, etc.), especially about the set or even what particular model or rank of Dalek they were.  I told him you get a better look at Daleks in my Doctor Whooves comic than you do in those pics.

Well, not anymore.  Moffat tweeted a pic from the set of the currently shooting first episode of Doctor Who that will run in September or October.  Mornblade, old buddy?  This one's on me....

I keep telling you -- be careful what you wish for, you may get it.

1965. The Daleks were last seen in silver body and blue bumps (the last the blue bumps were used) in the sixties, the vertical slats having been added in 1965. The lower profile ear-lights being common at the time.

Ah, you noticed that, did you? Very good, you're getting better at seeing what Moffat is showing. ETA: After all, when they revived the series, they had to borrow a Dalek body to do the first story with one. So what you see up there was specifically built for the episode. And Moffat is too much of a Who geek to make a mistake like that.

I wonder if Moffat is going to attempt to "merge" the two origins of the Daleks, the Dals/Thals origin and the "Genesis Of The Daleks" origin. (If you don't know the Dals/Thals story, I'll lend you my Peter Cushing tape, it actually follows Terry Nation's story pretty close.)

The only reason I dismiss that is because, well, that would take a lot more than a one hour episode. Could that be the thread, the "Bad Wolf" for either this shortened season or the next?

Better question occurs to me, though: how much history can the Doctor and the Daleks interact with? Do they somehow break the time lock?
