Desperate, desperate news articles.
I laughed because last week they found a quote from Mandip Gill stating they had already filmed the holiday special. She probably stated it in a "Well, this is coming next and it's already done" sort of way, and the news site spun it to "Special filming is COMPLETE! It MAY still be done for the Holidays, still unconfirmed" like no one had heard anything about it.
The spin in the latest article is great; They make it sound like the Reconnaissance Dalek is the confirmed new permanent design, in spite of the gold 2005 models being present en masse. Basically playing the "Ewwwww Paradigm Daleks!" card when, yeah, most of fandom are aware of that Dalek and thanks to filming leaks know what happens to it.
