On Friday, Digital Journal reported that the Daleks were returning
to Doctor Who
after a two-year gap, in a story that would see all versions of the robotic foes – from the 1960s originals, to those that were seen in the 1970s, 1980s and 2000s, to the newest ones introduced in 2010, in Victory of the Daleks
Many of the original Dalek props reside at the Doctor Who Experience
– currently moving from London, where it has been staged since 2007
, to its permanent home in Cardiff, the Welsh city where Doctor Who
is produced. Some of those props were involved in filming
over the weekend for the as-yet-untitled episode that will be broadcast this autumn.
During filming, Doctor Who
’s head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat tweeted a photograph
of one of those Daleks – thought to be from episodes when Patrick Troughton was playing the Second Doctor.
Meanwhile, also at the weekend, the comedian Peter Serafinowicz
claimed on his BBC Radio 6 Music show
that he knew what the Daleks had been up to during their absence from television screens, then proved it by playing an extract from a cassette tape, Dalek Relaxation For Humans
