    Daleks
Search for 'Daleks' on Amazon

Bio:
Television viewers of Doctor Who may see no immediate need of this category, as there's very little differentiation given there between individual Daleks. A Dalek is a Dalek is a Dalek—at least on TV.

In comics, however, the situation is more muddled. According to David Whitaker's The Dalek Chronicles, the term "Dalek" refers not only to the mechanical travelling units with the funny bumps and the toilet plunger arm, but also to the humanoids that they evolved from. This is a significantly different idea than what was established on TV; there, the being inside the robot was called a Kaled. Because of this, there are some named humanoid Daleks in comics.

Additionally, some of the robots got named in comics, as well—perhaps just because the comic strips featured extensive dialogue from individual Daleks, causing a need to name them to avoid confusion.
