Actually, my favorite Dalek story in Nu-Who was "The Daleks in Manhatten." The Daleks recognized that in order to keep exterminating the universe they were going to need to change, and so they tried to create a new breed of Dalek -- but then couldn't accept change when they came across it.
I wished they'd focused on that aspect rather than have the pig-slaves or six-penis-head Sec.

I'd have preferred the conversion to have gone in the other direction; Sec stays in the Dalek casing but changes within. It would've made Sec even more dangerous as he would be fighting with his new emotions AND still have Dalek weaponry at his disposal.

Re: Favorite Doctor Who alien race?

I don't have any favourites per-see, but I do have something of a soft spot for the Silurians and I'd like to see more with them down the line. Either in the future after the survivors re-emerge and join with the human civilisation or go off to found off-world colonies of their own. Actually what I'd be really interested in seeing is their civilization at it's peek before they were forced underground.

Did classic Who ever go there? Seems like an obvious thing to do, no?

They only featured in two stories (The Silurians and Warriors of the Deep) and both featured attempts to kill the humans. The first story was more civilised. The second was just dumb.

You forgot The Sea Devils as well.

I agree with Reverend, I've always wanted to see a story with The Silurians/Sea Devils at the height of their power, before the slumber, or after waking and building a new Society. That was one one thing I really enjoyed about the Matt Smith Silurian Two-Parter, was seeing their Society functioning.

Re: Favorite Doctor Who alien race?

I think I'll start a slight scandal by suggesting the felinoids depicted in "New Earth and "Gridlock". Since late 1982 (after seeing Paul Schrader's lurid remake of "Cat People" which awakened something deep within my id), I've always wondered how Lt. M'Ress (from the animated Star Trek) might have appeared in live action format, and seeing Novice Hame (the "cat" nun who cared for the Face of Boe) gave me a possible solution. Seriously, the way the makeup team was able to apply actual "fur" to the appliances rather than just painted patterns, was truly amazing and better done than a fair number of big budget movie designs.

Hame was a sympathetic character who got a bad deal (I gathered she honestly didn't know what her "sisters" were doing and got arrested unjustly), so I was thrilled she was revealed as a heroine in her second appearance. Plus, Brannigan was just a trip, a likabe, funny fellow from start to finish. Not to mention his "children" were completely heart melting. "Mamma!" Indeed!

Sincerely,

Bill

Oh the cat people!!! They are cool. I love the episode "New Earth", it's a memorable one for me.

My favorite aliens are

1. Vashta Nerada
2. Oods
3. Silence.

In that order. Funny somehow that my favorite aliens are not really visible. Guess the own Imagination is still the best.

They're weren't in that story, though you could argue their cousins were.
