Mark Gatiss talks Victory of the Daleks

SFX have posted the first part of an exclusive interview online with Mark Gatiss, the writer of Doctor Who: Victory of the Daleks.

SFX: The Daleks and World War II is a pretty splendid combination. Was that actually your pitch or was it something that Steven requested?
Mark Gatiss: “Steven simply said ‘Churchill vs the Daleks!’ And that’s one of those pitches that you want to be given. It’s not like ‘Picnic with a man’! It’s very exciting. And it came directly out of Steven taking his kids to the Cabinet War Rooms – they were absolutely spellbound by it. So that’s the setting. I was initially intimidated by the thought of doing the Daleks after all these years but then I suppose I’ve always had an idea of what I’d like to do with them. They are, weirdly, an inherently World War II feeling creature. The Nazi connection is there, and also the world of the early ’60s is very heavily post-War – they feel like they belong to it. There’s a nice match to it.”
