Peter Capaldi will face the Daleks in Series 8, according to a recent report from The Daily Star.
Their report states:
Peter Capaldi will fulfill a lifelong dream of fighting the Daleks in his first series as the new Doctor. BBC bosses originally wanted the 2014 series of the Time Lord’s adventures to be “exterminator-free’’. The Daleks featured in both last November’s 50th Anniversary episode, ‘The Day of the Doctor’ and also the Christmas special, ‘The Time of the Doctor’. So TV chiefs reckoned they should disappear for a while to allow the new Doc to tackle a new batch of monsters. But Capaldi, 55, who admits he is massive fan of the show, told producers it had been his childhood dream to fight the iconic pepper pot villains - and he has got his wish.
This report has not been officially confirmed by the BBC, though episode 2 of series 8 is a likely candidate for the Daleks to return. Writer Phil Ford recently gave the hint, “behind enemy lines.” He may have been referring to the Daleks.
Doctor Who Series 8 is due to air later in 2014 on BBC One.
