Matt Smith to face Daleks? Dammit why?

Ok, i am a fan of the daleks do not get me wrong, but Rusty over used them for like every damn season finale and i'd really like to see more old foes make apperances other than the same old rehash exterminate tin pots. K thats off my chest any way the article below popped up on the netz and i grabbed it for you to peruse. Enjoy!!

Matt Smith will battle The Daleks in his first 'Doctor Who' episode.

The 26-year-old actor - who takes over from current Time Lord David Tennant next year - will face the legendary extraterrestrial mutants in his first adventure to please fans who think he is too young to play the iconic role.

BBC bosses{the same ones who cancelled the show back in the 80"s}reportedly decided to revive the Doctor's most famous {overused} foes to boost {beat a dead horse} show ratings as they are worried Smith will not be as popular as Tennant - widely considered one of the most successful stars of the long running sci-fi series.

A network source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "They know fans will take a while to get used to Matt as The Doctor, so it makes sense to have him fight his most famous {overused} enemies. They always bring good ratings."

BBC chiefs have previously revealed they plan to "step back in time" when designing the Tardis for the new series of the programme.

Instead of the current brown and orange interior, the time and space machine will have blue walls and white windows, similar to the original 1960s Tardis.

The new series of 'Doctor Who' - which stars Smith at the 11th Time Lord - is due to start next spring

I'm really hoping this one isn't true for many of the same reasons you are -- though if they do a good job (a Steven Moffat penned Dalek story does seem intriguing), I'll eat my hat and am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

That said, given its source, I'm prone not to believe it, which does suck when it comes to the new design for the TARDIS interior because I'd love to see the old look with the new budget.

If they do use them again lets hope its at least a decent plot. I dont like the sound of them redesigning the tardis. thats just not on... mind you i strongly feel that david t should not be hanging up his screwdriver yet as well. mind you i thought the same about christopher and that one worked out well
