It’s time to conclude our breakdown of the special 50th tribute trailer. This time we’ll be looking at the monsters featured and all the other references.

Monsters & Villains



Early on a 70’s one exterminates a UNIT soldier.


Classic Daleks reappear later in the trailer in a throwback to The Dalek Invasion of Earth. We also see a Dalek saucer near Big Ben.


A bronze Dalek (above left) is in front of Rose (shot by J.J. Abrams by the looks of it).

Second, and this is pretty hard to see in the still, but a Supreme Paradigm Dalek can just about be made out (pictured above right).



There are three Cybermen sightings. The first is very hard to spot – a Cyber-head can be seen behind the exterminated UNIT troop, near the TARDIS (above left). The next are the 80’s Earthshock versions near the Daleks. Then finally, behind Eccleston, is a 2013 Cyberman. His arm and upper torso can be seen towards the right of the frame (above).


The Master

It is Roger Delgado’s Master fencing the Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee, a nod to their classic fight scene in The Sea Devils.


Weeping Angel

Don’t blink! You know the rest.


A Silent

Shocking! [Insert joke about how there’s nothing in the picture.]



Not really a monster as such. Instead a robot from Tom Baker story The Robots of Death.


Sea Devil

This one is tricky as it’s so blurry. Behind Sarah Jane, a Sea Devil lurks.


Racnoss, Ood & Auton

From left to right in the picture above. The Racnoss from The Runaway Bride can been seen perched on the cliff behind McGann. The Auton is behind the Ood.
