    • Darla: First there were the Daleks. And then there was a man who fought them. And then in time, he died. There are a few, of course, who believe this man somehow survived. And that one day, he will return. For both our sakes, dearest Hannah, we must hope these stories are true.

    • Darla: They say you can help.
      The Doctor: Do they? I wish they'd stop.

    • Rory: So how much trouble are we in?
      The Doctor: How much trouble, Mr. Pond? Out of ten... eleven.

    • Amy: Where are we? Spaceship, right?
      The Doctor: Not just any spaceship. The Parliament of the Daleks. Be brave.
      Amy: What do we do?
      The Doctor: Make them remember you.

    • The Doctor: It's never made any sense to me.
      Dalek Prime Minister: Why not?
      The Doctor: Because you'd just kill them.
      Dalek Prime Minister: It is offensive to us to extinguish such divine hatred.
      The Doctor: Offensive?
      Dalek Prime Minister: Does it surprise you to know that Daleks have a concept of beauty?
      The Doctor: I thought you'd run out of ways to make me sick. But hello again. You think hatred is beautiful?
      Dalek Prime Minister: Perhaps that is why we have never been able to kill you.

    Notes (4)

    • A new logo is introduced and a slightly altered opening sequence. The logo reflects the theme of the episode: this one has Dalek lights on it.

    • This episode features not only the largest number of CGI Daleks featured in the series to date, with the appearance of Daleks from every era of the series, old and new.

    • Great efforts were taken to make the presence of future series star Jenna-Louise Coleman's appearance in the episode, several months shy of her official appearance in the 2012 Christmas Special, a secret.

    • International Airdates:
      US: September 1, 2012 on BBCAmerica

    Trivia (1)

    • Trivia: When Oswin tells the Doctor about the Intensive Care unit, she mentions that they are survivors of failed Dalek campaigns on the planets Spiridon, Kembel, Aridius, Vulcan, and Exxilon. This refers to events from the classic series' stories "Planet of the Daleks," "The Dalek Master Plan," "The Chase," "The Power of the Daleks," and "Death to the Daleks," respectively.
