Monsters at School!
Bottisham Community Primary School recently held a very unofficial but very fun Doctor Who event that included appearances from an Ood, a Cyberman, the TARDIS and a very imperial looking Dalek. The Dalek faced a gruelling question and answer session from the five hundred (and then some!) people who turned up on the day.
Graham Aldred, a parent at the school, works for the BBC prop department and was therefore able to acquire some of the goodies that kept everyone entertained throughout the day.
The day was a huge success and even though a certain former companion couldn’t attend, a lot of fun was still had by all:
“We had a Q&A with a Dalek, we had an Ood and a Santa Claus from the show as well as a Host and we did try to get Louise Jameson, who played Tom Baker’s companion Leela when he was Doctor Who, but she couldn’t make it.”
