Britain’s Got Daleks

It’s a Bank Holiday here in the UK (so excuse the lack of new posts today) but we couldn’t let this one go without sharing it with the loyal Kasterborous readers.

Dalek impersonator Martyn Crofts appeared on Britain’s Got Talent at the weekend, performing a Doctor Who-inspired rendition of “King of the Road”. He successfully has the judges (including The God Complex‘s David Walliams) in stitches but did he make it through to the next round?

Assuming you care about this cynical piece of theater (the show, not the act) enough to know how well Martyn did, you’ll be pleased to know that he made it through to the live semi-finals, and it’s hopefully going to get him a shot at opening his local gala event.

“Hopefully, by winning Britain’s got Talent, I’ve got a real good chance of opening Skipton Gala.

“Me and my son, we always go to Skipton Gala and it’s always opened by a celebrity. I said to him, ‘next year, I’m going to open the actual gala’.

With a Doctor Who theme to the performance, I’m sure you will join us in wishing Martyn Crofts the best of luck!
