Speaking at the Edinburgh Television Festival, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has indicated that there are no plans to have the Doctor's most famous enemies return for the next series, though production is not yet complete.
Steven Moffat said:
There will be a Dalek story when we've got a good idea for a Dalek story. [When that happens], there will be lots of different kinds of Daleks.Have they run out of good Dalek stories then?
It's true that many fans have criticized the fact that the Daleks have appeared quite a few times on the series over the course of the past 5 years - ever since its return in 2005 under former showrunner Russell T Davies.
But there is something else that has me pricking my ears; its that Moffat says that when the Daleks DO return, there will be ''lots of different kinds.''
Now, is Steven Moffat talking about the different Daleks we saw emerge last season in Victory of the Daleks (the blue, yellow, white, orange and red ones)? The ''old'' ones? A mix of all of them? Could they even be completely new Daleks?
That's certainly food for thoughts.
So what do you think? Are you ultimately disappointed to see that the Daleks may not appear in series 6, or do you think that the Doctor needs a breather from everything Dalek?
