New Monsters in Gatiss’ Adventure?
Wherever the Doctor goes, you can guarantee that the Daleks will eventually show up. It’s true of any era of the series, even the 1996 TV movie. And since filming commenced on the Mark Gatiss Doctor Who drama, An Adventure in Space and Time, those Daleks have once again shown up!
As An Adventure in Space and Time enters its final week of filming, cast and crew as well as the general public were just about getting over the excitement of recreating some of the marvellous scenes from The Dalek Invasion of Earth. Many stopped and started in disbelief last week as the Daleks once again took to the streets of London albeit under far more subdued circumstances.
But true to their acting roots and never wanting to shun the limelight, it seems that the pepper pot menaces are back again to shoot additional scenes for An Adventure in Time and Space. Producer Matt Strevens even posted a picture of two Daleks having an early morning natter (probably about world domination or perhaps the state of the economy). He also posted an interesting teaser regarding the drama:
So the final week begins. It's flown by. Some big, moving scenes to come and perhaps a new creature or 2.

What on earth can he mean? Will we see a new Doctor Who monster that was never brought to screen or will we see a recreation of a classic Doctor Who moment with a foe that has since achieved a dominance only bettered by the Daleks…?
