DISASTER! the bbc have just announced that they cannot reach agreement with the family of dalek creator terry nation (who own 50% of the rights to the daleks) with regard to their use in the new doctor who series.

the bbc claim that the nation family want complete control of any storyline involving the daleks because they are worried the bbc is making them 'too evil'.

these are the creatures who want to exterminate every other being from the universe and rule it themselves. how much more evil can it get :evil: ?

hopefully the two parties will continue negotiating becuase doctor who without the daleks is like fish without chips, mulder without scully and bonnie without clyde. its just not right :dis: .

Worried they'll be too evil? They do realize they are overturned garbage cans right?

The daleks are back in!!

I just saw this on the Sci Fi Channel's news of the week site:


Daleks Return In Who

They were out, now they're back in: The BBC announced that Doctor Who's archenemies, the Daleks, will appear after all in the upcoming updated TV series slated for 2005. The announcement comes after the network resolved a dispute with the estate of SF writer Terry Nation, who created the mechanical menaces, the BBC reported.

The BBC said an agreement had been reached ensuring that the Daleks will return when the new Doctor Who comes back to British airwaves, with Christopher Eccleston in the lead role.

There have been protracted negotiations between the BBC and Nation's estate since it was announced Doctor Who was coming back 14 years after it was canceled. The talks broke down, with the BBC saying at the time that no agreement could be reached over editorial control and that producers had already created another villain.
