A Dalek is a member of race of cyborgs which hail from the planet Skaro. They are featured in the internationally-popular BBC TV show Doctor Who. Externally they are pepperpot-shaped metallic machines, with a single eye-stalk, a gun, and a utility arm, but internally they are controlled by an amorphous Kaled mutant. The Dalek race is fiercely resistant to malign outside influence, and the purity of their race is of the utmost concern to them.
The Daleks are largely based off the Nazis in WWII for their quest for universal conquest and unrelenting nature[Citation Needed]. They are often contrasted by the Cybermen on the show who represent communism[Citation Needed].
