A Yorkshireman with a love of Daleks – and a lack of respect for the design of the Supreme Dalek from The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End – has put together his own 6-foot home-build Skaro killing machine.
It is Alan Clark’s third Dalek, and it seems his neighbours in the Wakefield area are used to seeing the Daleks in his back garden. Of the latest build – based on 1980s “Dalek Storm” designs by BBC artist Rocky Marshall – Mr Clark said:
“When I built the first Dalek I got really into watching Doctor Who and when the new series started I was very disappointed in the Red Supreme Dalek they decided use in the last episodes.
“It didn’t have much about it and it was a bit of a let down to be honest.”
Standing six feet tall and with an in-built synthesizer for Dalek speech, Mr Clark has high hopes for this impressive specimen:
“I’m hoping that the BBC will take notice and maybe use it in the new series of Doctor Who.”
