* OnceASeason: The BBC's deal with the Nation estate means they have to appear in some form at least once a year, even if they have to shoehorn in a cameo, as in "The Waters of Mars" and "The Wedding of River Song". In Classic Who, after 1965 the Daleks turned up less frequently, but this still somewhat applies as every Doctor faced them at least once.

The Daleks did appear in the TV movie but he didn't interact with him, but luckily Big Finish more than makes up for it).

A species of humanoid aliens and the ancestors of the Daleks who use to inhabit the planet Skaro. They got into a thousand years with the Thals that nearly decimated both species. The Kaleds were beginning to mutate due to chemical weapons and the Daleks were originally designed as a travel machine for the final mutation. Originally they died from a nuclear bomb, but the Fourth Doctor's meddling in their timeline meant the majority were killed by a Thal rocket, and the rest by Daleks. Davros is currently the only Kaled current living.

* FemmeFatalons
* FateWorseThanDeath: Not in their first appearance, where they "kill you nicely" and get enthusiastic testimonials from their victims. But played dead straight in their second, where while they kill most of their victims, they partially reanimate Sacred Bob into a mouthpiece for the Angels. And in their third, where they keep humans in solitary confinement for their whole lives while repeatedly sending them back into the past to feed.

* MadeOfIron: Though the obvious logic would just be to smash them into dust as stone statues, they are a lot tougher than statues should be. A group of soldiers unloading on them doesn't even scratch them.
** Somewhat justified. In this case, it was a dark hallway and the muzzle flash from the bullet was lighting them up, meaning they were stone when the bullets struck them. The split second of darkness between shots caused them to revert to their natural form, then reform back into unblemished stone when the next flash occurred. Their natural defense mechanism can therefore double as a rather effective HealingFactor. Then we get to see their true form is very stone like as well, so they're immensely tough all the time.
* NeckSnap: Normally, the Weeping Angels kill by sending victims back in time and feeding on their residual energy... but should they not need to feed on a person's temporal energy... crack goes their neck. And they have ''very'' strong clamping force that makes it near impossible to escape their grip. If an unlucky soul gets caught, they're either dead, or doomed to a struggle that will likely tear up their body.
