LONDON (AP) — The Daleks, metallic enemies of sci-fi hero Doctor Who, have lived to fight another day.

The British Broadcasting Corp. announced Wednesday that it had resolved a dispute with the estate of the Daleks' creator that had threatened to keep the tinny villains out of a new series of the popular sci-fi program.

"Doctor Who" ran on the BBC between 1963 and 1996, building up a huge following among generations of British children.

The broadcaster is now filming a new series starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor, an enigmatic Time Lord, who travels space and time battling evil. It is duo to be broadcast next year.

In the original series, his most feared opponents were the Daleks, metal assassins on wheels whose vocabulary consisted of the command "Exterminate."

The BBC had earlier said the Daleks would not be in the new series because of a dispute about editorial control with the estate of their creator, Terry Nation.
