Do Daleks have rights? - it would appear so.
As The Sun reports, the Beebs plans to feature Daleks in the new series of Dr Who may be exterminated by a rights row over their use.
The Daleks were invented by Terry Nation and were jointly owned by Mr Nation and the BBC. It would appear that prior to his death in 1997 he had fallen out with the BBC and told his executors never to let the BBC use the Daleks again.
Heated discussions are now underway between the BBC and Mr Nation's executors in a bid to let those wheely robots make a return to the screen.
