DIY Dalek

Wow! Check this out...it's the build-diary (with pics) for a fan-made replica of one of the new Daleks (full size) from the last season of Dr Who...! Apparently the guy that built it managed to put it together from spy photographs (leaked from the set during filming), so the build was complete before the season had even fully aired on TV!

Here is a shot I took of the "official" prop at the Dr Who exhibition on the pier at Brighton (scary! ;) -

- I prefer the home-made one now I come to compare them, actually! ;) Rumour has it that there is a massive war between the Daleks and the Cybermen in the new series to look forward to also...Can't believe the BBC script writers actually considered leaving them out to begin with...duh...I think "Delek" was the best episode of the last season... :)

Nah... the real secret is the Master returning at the end of season 2 ;)

You must have gone to the exhibtion on a quiet day. It was a pain getting a nice clean shot of the Dalek, some of which are on my site somewhere, with all the sweaty kids and parents milling about...

Yeah, it was really odd but when I was there (about lunchtime on a bright, sunny saturday!) the place was completely devoid of visitors, I suppose it's been there a while now...perhaps most people who wanted to go already had...? Was good for taking pics though, it's true...
