Hide behind the sofa: Davros IS coming!

This has got to be the worst-kept secret in the history of television. But with three weeks left before the two-part finale begins for this season's Doctor Who, the BBC is still refusing to confirm that the big baddie this year is Davros. How could it not be? Season 1 of the revived series ended with a plot by the Dalek Emperor. The following year gave us the first-ever clash between the Daleks and the Cybermen. 2007 hailed the return of The Master (who last menaced The Doctor in the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie). The show will be on hiatus for one season so that David Tennant can fulfill stage obligations in London, and for that reason alone I doubt Russell T Davies is going to leave us hanging with The Rani or The Valeyard.

Gotta admire the BBC though for keeping a tight ship. Until possibly yesterday, when RichardWho.com snagged the following...


Real deal? My gut says yes.

Davros, possibly the single greatest villain in all of fiction, is returning.

And if that pic is legit, he looks great! We just gotta see if he can still scream and rave like the Davros of old :-)
