Mini Model Dalek
Exterminating the competition at this year’s 29th annual Hobbies Exhibition at Goole Leisure Centre in March, local man George Brown was overwhelmed when he later received a letter from Doctor Who production staff at the BBC, addressed to George and his daughter Bethany.
The letter expressed how impressed they were with George’s mini Dalek – built with household components:
“It is made with bits that I find from everywhere. There’s ping pong balls, car parts and a plunger on it. I even used a mixing bowl for the shape of the Dalek’s head.”
“Bethany sent off the newspaper article to them and when we got the postcard she was amazed.
“It is hand-written and says how fantastic the model is. The article itself is also all over the internet on sci-fi and Doctor Who websites. We’d love to see it in the TV show’s magazine too.”
