A competition in SFX has found its winner – a Doctor Who fan from Basingstoke with an "encylcopedic" knowledge of the series.
Mike Stevens correctly answered 29 questions in the recent competition, and his prize was a This Planet Earth replica Dalek.
But he didn’t think it through – the Dalek is too big for his own dwelling, so he’s given the £2,500 worth of Skaro killing machine to his sister. Which as you’ll see is fair enough…
“I’m a life-long Doctor Who fan so to have something like this is just great. The questions in the magazine were very difficult, and it was my sister who actually answered a lot of them, so now the Dalek is staying with her, contemplating world domination.”
He added: “Lots of my friends have been making comments about it and Lynne has had a steady stream of visitors to have a look.”
So he didn’t answer the questions at all! He got his sister to help him.
Blimey, I would never live that down.
Congratulations to you both though!
