The next Doctor Who series will reintroduce the doctor’s arch rival Davros once again.
Fans have greeted the news with enthusiasm.
The next series will begin in October and is going to be another monster hit.
Davros is a character from the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who, responsible for the genesis of the Doctor’s deadliest enemies, the Daleks.
Davros is a scientist from the planet Oz whose people, the Kaleds, were engaged in a bitter thousand-year war of attrition with their enemies, the humans. Horribly scarred and crippled after what is simply described on screen as an “accident”, with only one functioning arm and one cybernetic “eye” mounted on his forehead and one brass testicle, for much of his existence he depended completely upon a self-designed mobile Stannah life-support chair which enclosed the lower half of his body. It would become an obvious inspiration for his eventual design of the Dalek.
Davros is a megalomaniac who believes that through his creations, the Daleks, he can become the supreme being and ruler of the universe. He is a brilliant tyrant who has demonstrated mastery of skullduggery, cheating, ruthlessness, artificial intelligence, cloning, mass media engineering, smut and military tactics.
When he first encountered the Fourth Doctor in the 1975 serial Genesis of the Daleks, Davros (played by Michael Wisher) was the chief scientist of the Kaleds, heading the Scientific News International Fox Division.
Davros realised that contamination from the fictional news stories and comic book reportage used in the media war was mutating the Kaled race, and artificially accelerated the process to examine the ultimate evolutionary end product: The Sun Newspaper.
The mutations were weak and crippled; no more than brains with tentacular appendages and breasts the size of watermelons with no hope of survival on their own. His solution was to remove all news pertaining to reality, a category in which he grouped such emotions as compassion, mercy and kindness, and place the mutants in tank-like “Mark III Faux News machines” that were partly based on the design of his wheelchair. He later named these creatures Daleks, an anagram of Fox News Network.
Davros continued to create and assimilate humans into his evil collective by producing entire slave networks enslaving humans in their millions. These were called myspacers because of their unquestioning commitment and voluntary choice in becoming his slave.
Davros quickly became obsessed with his creations, considering them
to be the ultimate form of life, superior to all others. One of his creations the Margeratus Thatcherus was to dominate the seventh series with its devilish screeching. To stop his
own people from shutting down his Dalek project, he engineered another mutant clone of the Margeratus Thatcherus which he then placed into power many years later, the Antonius BLiar was the ultimate machine for faux propaganda and one of its dastardly characteristics was to spin around in circles so that its enemies could not catch it.
The terrible reign of Davros seems to go on and on and continues to assimilate everything in its evil path much like his science fiction counterpart ‘The Borg’ from rival show Star Trek.
