I noticed one of Amy's drawings in her office in "The Wedding of River Song", It was a red Dalek. Amy has never seen a red Dalek. She seen a couple of green ones. She knows about the new Daleks. Her only view of the new Daleks was in black and white. She was above ground and dead when the red Dalek showed up.

I will take the logic approach of Amy's lives', in the collapse of time and realities, as a working principle. This means she has in fact seen a red Dalek and her drawing was not artistic creativity or at least a good guess.

If one takes the working theme "Rule 1: Everybody Lies" then I came to the conclusion Amy will meet the new Daleks in a future episode. affraid

This is a perfect example of making the show wayy more complicated than it actually is. I think the drawing was just there to show a dalek, that's all. She may still see the daleks in the future, but I don't think it's that big of a deal that we were shown that Smile

Remember that the bubble universe was completely anachronistic so that Amy could easily have seen a red Dalek already even though the regular timeline Amy hadn't yet.

Ok, she may have...

But really, to quote the MST3K opening intro: If you're wondering how he eats and breathes, and other science facts...Just repeat to yourself "It's just a show, I should really just relax".

Again, the show isn't as complicated as we make it out to be...it could simply be an error in continuity as well..

Or (and I hate to be defending Moffat and all his gaping plotholes/continuity) the Doctor could have told her about their colors after Victory of the Daleks. Even though she didn't see them, it wouldn't be hard to imagine the Doctor telling her that they were "Blue, White, Orange, Red, Yellow".

Or there could be a TARDIS database of some sort... I don't know, in the libary next to the pool.

Amy saw a Dalek that wasn't green.

The Big Bang, anyone?

And in non-TV material, she's seen plenty of red ones.
