Doctor Who: Is This The "Daleks!" Last Stand Against the Mechanoids?

Over the past four episodes of the Doctor Who "Time Lord Victorious" crossover animated series Daleks!, the Doctor's sworn enemy has been on the run from a force looking to wipe them out of existence. How desperate were the Daleks? They entered into an alliance with the Mechanoids- but from the looks of things as we head into this week's fifth and final chapter, "Day of Reckoning"? The Daleks may have a better appreciation for the human expression, "out of the frying pan and into the fire." Daleks vs. Mechanoids- the final fight.

Now without further ado, here's a look at this week's fifth and final chapter, "Day of Reckoning":

Written by James Goss and created by Salford-based animators Studio Liddell, the BBC Studios Digital production is available for fans to watch for free, weekly on the Doctor Who YouTube channel. As for who your ears should be listening for, the voice cast includes Nicholas Briggs (voice of the Daleks in Doctor Who), Joe Sugg (YouTube, Strictly Come Dancing), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard, The Sarah Jane Adventures), and Ayesha Antoine (Holby City). Here's a look at "The Sentinel of the Fifth Galaxy," premiering at 6 pm GMT (1 pm EST) on Thursday, November 19- exclusively on the Doctor Who YouTube channel:

The Dalek Empire comes up against a terrible force. The Daleks' plundering of the Archive of Islos unearths something ancient and deadly. Soon Skaro is under attack and the Dalek Emperor is on the run! Can the Daleks defeat their adversaries and regain their planet, even with help from an old enemy? Will this be the end of the Daleks?

"This latest, fantastic, thrill-packed venture into the world of animation, with the Daleks as the stars of the show, is something so many of us have been craving for years," said Briggs. "And for me, it's been a marvelous challenge, as usual playing every single Dalek in action, but with the added excitement of portraying some beautifully written, leading Dalek characters. It's been a blast, and I can't wait to see the finished production." For Sugg, the role represents the opportunity to be part of a franchise he's loved for years. "I'm super excited and thankful to have been invited to play a role in this new animation. I've been a fan of Doctor Who from a young age so to be a part of it is a dream come true."
