If I were allowed to take over Doctor Who, I would give them something of an update. The current designs are still too close to the original - toilet plunger and problems with stairs* always come to mind when I see them.
*Yes, they can negotiate stairs. But still slow them down considerably.
Have to say I am a bit fed up with Daleks, think they use them too much but my sister took her three kids to GEEKS Doncaster Comic Con today,she posted a video of her ten year old stood next to a Dalek, he had a nervous smile on his face trying to look cool. Then the dalek moved and spoke the squeal of terror as he ran away was priceless.
Looks like they are still a credible foe to kids.
Do they use them too much - Yes. However, they are always going to be a credible threat because they are the Daleks.
Start tinkering with their design and they will lose the only credibility they have - their image. I actually think the rainbow daleks did more to destroy them as characters than anything else. They do need much better story lines though. I'd like to see a dalek rebellion that the doctor ends up aiding them with.
Grandad hated him Seriously nothing makes up for the reject Cbeebies presenter, Amy Pond. To me she felt like a real step back in terms of companion. She was everything I thought we moved on from with Ace.But it had Winston Churchill.

All I know about the daleks is that they looked plain daft.
I never quite believe the Daleks are a threat, because they always have the Doctor in their sights and then let him talk them out of killing him. Almost any episode, they could simply shoot him and be done with it, but he opens his mouth and they start having doubts. They don't have much credibility, there.
