The claw manipulator was a manipulator arm which was used by the Daleks during the Second Dalek War. A pair of Daleks fitted with claw manipulators used them to seize and restrain Koral, gripping her arms and practically lifting her off her feet as she struggled in vain.
The Daleks whom operated within the vault of the Crucible following the Last Great Time War possessed claw manipulators with eight pincers, used to operate special hardware within the vault. (TV: The Stolen Earth/Journey's End)
Behind the scenesEdit
- In the two Dalek films, Dr. Who and the Daleks and Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D., the Daleks alternately appear with suction cups or a two-fingered claw manipulator, which was not derived from the original serials; the films' basic Daleks, Blue Daleks and Silver Daleks respectively, appear alternately with suckers or claws, higher-ranking individuals such as the Red Dalek of Dr. Who and the Daleks, the Red Dalek and the Black Dalek of Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D., sport claws, while the Black Dalek of Dr. Who and the Daleks and the Gold Dalek of Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D., whom functioned as the Supreme Dalek leader in their respective films, sported sucker arms.
- A CGI model of a Dalek with a "claw probe" arm was made for The Parting of the Ways.
