Angry cyborgs bent on universal domination, the Daleks first appeared on the “Doctor Who” television series in 1963 and were quickly established as one of the Doctor’s deadliest enemies. For half a century, viewers have watched the Time Lord battle these evil beings whose singular goal is to “Exterminate! Exterminate!”

Nobody should want to see the world through a Dalek’s point of view. According to the show’s lore, they have had every emotion removed except hate. But on Thursday the BBC  released Doctor Who: Eyestalk, a new app that lets you transform your iPhone, iPad, or iPod into a Dalek’s lens.

Eyestalk is basically a photo-filter app. You take a photo or video and then run it through one of seven filters that correspond to different Daleks that have appeared on the show. The app is pretty easy to use, and your Dalek-eye photos and videos are easy to share on Facebook, Twitter and Flicker.

When you get tired of the Doctor Who: Eyestalk app, you may want to mess around with iAmaDalek, another app from the BBC that lets you sound like a Dalek. You record a message, and the app plays it back with your voice all harsh and mechanical-sounding.

“Doctor Who” returns Saturday with “The Bells of Saint John,” starring Jenna-Louise Coleman as mysterious new companion Clara opposite Matt Smith’s Doctor.
