Saturday's Daily Mirror had a feature on some spoilers about the new series' Dalek stories... or, rather, rumored appearances of the metal nasties that could be serious - or could be purloined from online sources. (They sound suspiciously like speculation in our Forum, in fact...) Check out the details in the spoiler tag to read the details from the paper.
The BBC may have shelled out a whopping ú250,000 for the right to use The Daleks in the new series of Dr Who - but the metal monsters only pop up in one episode.

And when the big moment comes, in the eighth instalment, there's only one of them. It turns out he's a bit of an antique who has survived on a space station where he is killing off the crew one by one.

And gasp, that's the only time we'll clap eyes on the old-style daleks.

When they next appear, in the 13th and final episode, their shuttlecock shapes have been redesigned for the 21st century. Our sci-fi snoop revealed 'They have evolved into terrifying things that look a bit like spiders'. Eek.
