|Doctor Who (2014) storyboard by James Iles|
This weekend aired the second episode of Doctor Who season 8 titled "Into the Dalek." The numbers are strong and Den of Geek called it "one of the most downright enjoyable episodes of Who in the past year or two." The visuals are a big part of the episode and one storyboard artist that helped director Ben Wheatley visualize the episode is James Iles. He sent me some storyboards from one of the most powerful scenes in the episode when they enter the terrifying world of the Dalek's interior. The episode is great and the special effects are some of the best in years, but the storyboards show a slightly more horrifying look for the Dalek and the "antibodies."
Iles is a UK based professional storyboard and concept artist who's worked on big budget projects like Doctor Who, The Amityville Asylum (2013) and Outcasts (2011).

Official Doctor Who Summary
"The Doctor is an alien Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who travels through all of time and space in his TARDIS. His current travel companion is Clara Oswald, though he has a long list of friends and companions who have shared journeys with him. Instead of dying, the Doctor is able to â€œregenerateâ€ into a new body, taking on a new personality with each regeneration. Eleven actors, plus John Hurt, have played the Doctor thus far."
