DOCTOR WHO Brings out the Gimp

We all (I hope) fondly remember the Russell T Davies era that so successfully relaunched DOCTOR WHO for the 21st century, and now the show is (sort of) doing something for Davies in return…

Bleeding Cool reports that years ago (before he was even involved in DW), Davies privately commissioned a Dalek in all-black livery for his home, and his friends took to calling it the “Gimp Dalek.”

Yesterday’s BFI screening of the Series 7 premiere confirmed that “Asylum of the Daleks” truly features every Dalek ever — including Davies’ Gimp Dalek! Current executive producer Steven Moffat had his predecessor’s specialized Dalek shipped to the studio, where it was included in filming, thus making the Gimp Dalek a canon character in the Whoniverse!

I wonder if the Gimp takes a lot of naps in the basement…

Oh, yeah? Sez you!
