Daleks Series 8 Rumours
Since filming began earlier in the year it’s been rumoured that Peter Capaldi will face the Daleks in Series 8. The Star are today reporting this, although apparently it wasn’t always the plan due to how frequently they have appeared of late.
Peter Capaldi will fulfil a lifelong dream of fighting the Daleks in his first series as the new Doctor. BBC bosses originally wanted the 2014 series of the Time Lord’s adventures to be “exterminator-free’’. The Daleks featured in both last November’s 50th anniversary episode The Day Of The Doctor and also the Christmas special The Time Of The Doctor. So TV chiefs reckoned they should disappear for a while to allow the new Doc to tackle a new batch of monsters. But Capaldi, 55, who admits he is massive fan of the show, told producers it had been his childhood dream to fight the iconic pepperpot villains – and he has got his wish.
There are no actual details on when exactly, but previous reports said it’ll be sooner rather than later. Episode 2 could be a likely candidate. Writer Phil Ford previously gave us the clue “behind enemy lines.” Could he have been referring to the Daleks?
