Will the Daleks win?
A vision of things to come?
The Daleks are battling it out with Coronation Street's Ena Sharples over who is to appear on a special selection of stamps to mark the coming of the millennium.
Dr Who's deadly enemies may have the edge over the former soap opera character in popularity - but objections have been raised over the stamp's design - so it is literally back to the Dalek drawing board for the Royal Mail.
Ena and the Daleks are vying for the fourth and final position in the entertainment category which will be released in June.
Designs for both images are by artist Justin Mortimer, who produced a controversial portrait of the Queen last year.
So far only one image in the entertainment category has been definitely confirmed - the silent movie star Charlie Chaplin.
The remaining stamp will celebrate Live Aid, the landmark charity event of the 1980s. It is likely to feature the face of Freddie Mercury, the former lead singer of the band Queen.
A Royal Mail spokesperson said that the final decision will be made in the next couple of months.
