The first installment of BBC’s eagerly awaited Doctor Who spinoff Daleks! has premiered on YouTube, launching fans into an interstellar invasion adventure. The premiere episode of the five-part, CG-animated miniseries, “The Archive of Islos,” follows the sinister “exterminate”-ers as they laser blast their way into the Archive on the orders of the Dalek Emperor and contend with its robotic guardians and their powerful allies — all with a delightful Whovian blend of peril and levity, of course.

As previously announced, Daleks! features a star-studded voiceover cast: Nicholas Briggs (voice of the Daleks in Doctor Who), Joe Sugg (YouTube’s ThatcherJoe, Strictly Come Dancing), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard, The Sarah Jane Adventure) as the ‘Queen of the Mechanoids’ and Ayesha Antoine (Holby City) as ‘The Chief Archivian’ / ‘Mechanoid 2150’.
Daleks! is the final piece of the multiplatform Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious story, experience and consumer products campaign, which will continue to roll out into early 2021. Learn more at timelordvictorious.com or by catching up on the NYCC Metaverse panel here.
