Doctor Who 50th Anniversary: British Icon Dalek

With the royal bambino (sorry, I mean future king, mam) comes a swell of national pride; a pride that can only find solace in commemorative plates.

But amongst those seeking to validate their existence with pillboxes, embossed teddy bears and shortbread tins; there is another, more deadly threat.

A stranger amongst us has taken our very flag – the preserve of naval ships and pub car parks alike – and used it to integrate and indeed eliminate those looking for a royal trinket or those looking to celebrate the legacy of his most fearsome enemy.

The design maybe new but its patter remains the same; no rather than joining in for a rousing chorus of God Save the Queen (John Bull or John Lydon) or moaning about the most humiliating way to travel known to man, the bus, this enemy can be heard spouting eight original phrases:

Seek, Locate, Annihilate

-Seek, Locate, Destroy

-You will obey the Daleks, obey, obey!!

-Halt or you will be Exterminated!

-You are an enemy of the Daleks!

-We are the Supreme Beings

-Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate! + Gun SFX

-Exterminate! + Gun SFX

Don’t be fooled by his lively livery because this is one guest looking to ruin everyone’s celebrations.

This limited 50th anniversary edition free-wheeling Dalek invader features poseable arm, head and eye for extra dastardliness and is available to pre-order now for £35.99 from Forbidden Planet for release on our blessed plot, this earth, this realm. This England, this nurse, this teaming womb of royal kings on the 23rd August.

Gentlemen, England expects that every man will do his duty, Godspeed.

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
