As expected, the British press, and some overseas papers, have been reporting on the return of the Daleks for the new series. We've added more links to various media reports below...

The Sun has run with the ball, claiming "victory" in their campaign. Their Page Three item features the expected Dalek flanked by two topless young women in the buff, a traditional Sun feature.

There's also a bit of spoiler in today's Telegraph; click on the spoiler tag for information.
According to today's Telegraph, "Insiders say the original plan was for a single, rogue Dalek in a plotline similar to the film Alien, before letting loose an entire Dalek army at the end of the series." This jibes with what we've heard about the story. SFX Magazine also reports that the Dalek story is written by Rob Shearman, who was likely rewriting it when it was announced the Daleks would not appear, and who may be either rewriting again or going back to the original draft for the Dalek version.
