Well… the wartime Daleks have bene let out of the bag by The Daily Star today who claim that the Doctor’s greatest enemies will be painted khaki and green for trench warfare purposes.

How much of this we can take as truth – and therefore spoilers – is not known, but there have long been rumours of a wartime story featuring Winston Churchill in season 31. There is of course a strong argument for the Daleks to be rested after the regular use over the past few years – but who would deny the Eleventh Doctor and Amy an encounter with the all-conquering alien Nazis?

According to The Daily Star these Daleks will cry “Ausrotten!” – apparently the German for “Exterminate!”. Unless you’re watching The Stolen Earth, in which case it’s “EXTERMINIEREN!”

But I digress.

A show source said: “It’s going to be one of the most fantastic stories.

“Daleks, Churchill, Nazis, Hitler and Doctor Who‚ who can top that? The show’s writers know that bringing back the Daleks is always a ratings winner.”

Meanwhile spotted on set was the seasoned Scottish actor, Bill Paterson who has recently starred on the small screen in Spanish Flu – The Forgotten Fallen with Mark Gatiss and alongside Freema Agyeman in both Law & Order and Little Dorritt. Interestingly Paterson plays wartime cabinet member and future Prime Minister Clement Atlee in the forthcoming Into the Storm – could he be reprising the role for Doctor Who?
