Yorkshire Dialek

Aye anyroads seems there were a bit o’ a to-do down Bratford at’ weekend, wi’ Doctor ‘Oo fans n’ Dialek’ all ovver ‘t shop.

So all these folk come daan to Oastler shopping centre on Saturday all to queue and see the Dialek n’ ave their photos tekken wi’ it.

A young man by t’ name o’ Adam Garrett were ‘t one looking after ‘t Dialek:

A member of the Q20 Theatre group, based in Wellington Crescent, Shipley, was keeping an eye on the metal monster. Adam, from Hebden Bridge, said: “We are here to give everyone a tribute to the Daleks. They are just so very popular with the adults and the kids because Dr Who has been going for so long.”

The Dalek was a hit with Arun Brunkard, six, visiting Bradford with his twin brothers Ryan and Sam, both four, dad Phil and mum Asha.

Asha, from Halifax, said: “We came here to see them because they are absolutely passionate about the Daleks. He loves them.”

Am from Yorkshire, tha’ knows.

(This is the extent of media coverage this week, readers. Seems rather low-key for the Tuesday before Doctor Who starts, doesn’t it?)
