The next series of Doctor Who will not feature any old monsters according to executive producer Piers Wenger.
The new series, the sixth since Doctor Who was revived in 2005, will instead feature new monsters. This means its unlikely that the Daleks, Cybermen or other enemies from the original series or indeed the more recent past will be back next year. When asked about the possibility of old monsters featuring in the next series Wenger said;
"No, we're bigger fans of new monsters. That's where we are. I think Steven's written the best new "Doctor Who" monsters in a long time in the [season] opening two-parter. That's where our energies are focused, really.."
The statement by Wenger could of course be a little white lie to keep fans in the dark over any planned returns.
