Can anyone tell me what story this is from?

Everyone responded by saying The Chase, but I’m pretty sure they never even shot on location for The Chase, did they?  Did they ever in those days?  
And when were the flying pods ever seen on screen?  I’ve only ever seen them in the comics before this.  Come one!  Team work!  Lets figure this out!
I wonder if it could be from some lost shoot from Master Plan?

It’s not from any TV serial. The pods were never seen on screen. It’s from a specially-shot set of photos for DWM. They’re model Daleks and hoverbouts made by the very talented Julian Vince.
There’s another photo here.
The actual photo’s in this gallery here. (Scroll down, on the right.) DWM, 1990.

There’s going to be a War Doctor book this July. It’s called ‘Engines of War’ and it’s written by George Mann.

*inhuman noises*

Is that a new Special Weapons Dalek behind him?

My excitement over the Special Weapons Dalek made me forget what kind of bothers me about this.
The Time War was always meant to be so epic and mind blowing that we couldn’t possibly imagine it, and keeping its narrative a mystery was most of what maintained the scale of its epic-ness in our minds.
Similarly, the Doctor’s mystery used to be so important to the power of the show and the character, until Classic Doctor Who ended up gradually removing it, going into a ton of depth with the Time Lords and the Doctor’s name and past.  Mystery has always been incredibly important to the Doctor’s character and the strength of the show.  But Steven Moffat has kind of denied us that.  
Even though the Doctor’s name has stayed a secret, Moffat de-powered the mystery of the name.

Remember that time the TARDIS twerked?  
Cultural appropriation!  She’s as bad as the Doctor is!

I get a bit sick of seeing big line ups of all the Doctors sometimes.  It looks like a big crowd of people, but its only one character, really.  The companions need more spotlight!
