Daily Dalek Mug Of The Month!

We’re giving away a Daily Dalek mug this week with our new feature, Mug of the Month!

Here at Kasterborous Towers, despite the high tech equipment required for writing and running a website of this size, we lead a sedentary lifestyle, with much time spent on the allotment patch growing wonderful new articles for your perusal.

So you can imagine my surprise when a mug tree popped up this week, adorned with delicious fruit from Tone Cartoons.

I’m talking, of course, about the mug you see pictured above, in which Marvin the Paranoid Android bemoans his lot to a baffled Dalek.

This is, of course, a great cartoon from the fantastic web comic The Daily Dalek, which you can follow at Artist Tone has given us one of these mugs to share – they don’t really grow on trees, fakt (with a “k”) fans – and you can own one very easily indeed.

To win, simply leave a comment on this post telling us what drink you would enjoy in this mug while watching The Enemy of the World.

You have until midnight on Friday, October 18th, and we’ll be announcing a winner on Saturday.

  1. John Lindsay says:

    Plain old tea will do me fine! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses! :-)

  2. Irish Coffee. YUM!

  3. Christine says:

    I’ll start with a nice mug of (strong) black coffee, followed by a glass of Italian Red wine. Or two…

  4. Mr Paddy says:

    I’d be drinking strong black coffee. Sorry, not terribly interesting is it.. although it’d certainly keep the synapses firing for an all-the-way-through viewing of Enemy of the World, which has already jumped up massively in my estimations. It’s up there with my favourite Troughton serials now, I even enjoyed it more than Web of Fear, which I found quite surprising.

  5. Lozzer says:

    Seeing as I didn’t winThe Vault when there was only two of us who entered that comp I don’t rate my chances, but… I would definitely go with my favourite chocolate oveltine and a couple of Freddo The Frog choc bars for dunking pleasure.

  6. TraineeHellcat says:

    A nice Bordeaux circa 1968 – a good year and well worth the wait!

  7. Irish Coffee hehe Deliicious.

  8. Jasmin says:

    Anything the color of a salamander.So when the episode is over i can down it and say “Salamander has been vanquished!”

  9. A nice milky brew! May sound a bit boring and dull, but it is rather nice!

  10. Chris Straughn says:

    I’d drink a Pan Galactic Gargleblaster!

  11. Giulia Marengo says:

    Raxacoricofallapatorius root beer. And why not? :D

  12. Jed Swiecichowski says:

    Black coffee with a touch of Bailey’s Irish Cream

  13. Jeni says:

    TEA! XD Green tea.

  14. Kailynn Weimer says:

    I would drink both coffee and chai tea.

  15. Mandy Roberts says:

    Tea, tea, & more tea. With the occasional coffee.

  16. Darren W says:

    Tea, Earl Grey, Hot, with a splash of milk.

  17. Trisha says:

    I would drink some Chai tea out of it or just some Hot Chocolate

  18. says:


  19. Alex says:

    EX-PER-CO-LATE!!! (Coffee, milk, no sugar)

  20. katie skeoch says:

    my coffee at work, strong enough to see me through until 5pm

  21. William Yates says:

    I’d fill mine with custard and ready my fishfingers seeing as Matt took inspiration from Troughtons doctor!

  22. catboytrades says:

    I would drink my tea with tons of sugar, while eating toast.

  23. Sarah says:

    I would, of course, have “a good cup of tea. A superheated infusion of free radicals and tannin. Just the thing for heating the synapses.” :)

  24. wiredwizard says:

    Hot chocolate. Tea keeps me up at night.

  25. chelscnicole says:

    Coffee with a bit of eggnog please! (;

  26. CatPiper says:

    Hot chocolate with nutmeg on top. Comfort drink to go with the comfort of seeing ‘my’ doctor rediscovered!

  27. Mark Cary says:

    A Pan-Galactic-Gargle-Blaster, what else…

  28. Patrick Ball says:

    “It is a curious fact, and one to which no one knows quite how much importance to attach, that something like 85% of all known worlds in the Galaxy, be they primitive or highly advanced, have invented a drink called jynnan tonnyx, or gee-N’N-T’N-ix, or jinond-o-nicks, or any one of a thousand or more variations on the same phonetic theme.” [The Restaurant at the End of the Universe] I would go for “the Gagrakackan ‘tzjin-anthony-ks’ which kill cows at a hundred paces”, given that the “Enemy of the World” seems to involve food tasters, poisonings, assassination and even some agriculture.

  29. Juan says:

    Hot chocolate!

  30. Ranger says:

    On these dark Autumn days, you can’t go wrong with a mug of Bovril, while cuddled into a big armchair with a blanket and a roaring (false) coal fire watching the incomparable Doctor fight against injustice and tyranny – my idea of bliss!

  31. Jon Roberts says:

    Some nice herbal tea, no on second thoughts, Newcastle Brown Ale.

  32. Riya D says:

    Iced coffee isn’t really a mug drink – but hey, I live on the stuff. And it goes brilliantly with Doctor Who! :D

  33. Darryl says:

    Tea, Earl Grey, Hot
    I got curious about Capt. Picard’s drink of choice and I loved it. I now drink both traditional Earl Grey and non-caffeinated white Earl Grey.

    • Victoria – you are our winner! Please email to claim your prize:D

  39. Anthony says:

    I would take it to my job in a computer shop for the US Air Force and drink my morning cup of fresh coffee

  40. Why, a cup of Typhoo brand tea would be splendid in that cup, don’t you thnk? That, and a pair of Beatles lounge pants, along with “Enemy of the World” on the tv and the two dogs beside me. Yup, sounds like a right recipe for WIN! :)

  41. Galadriel says:

    Mulled apple cider with cinnamon and carmel

  42. Cara Carlson says:

    Coffee. Black. YUM….or home made hot chocolate

  43. Alexx Plotsker says:

    I’ll take a sonic screwdriver. It’s a real thing, I swear. Pretty damn good too.

  44. meaghan anders says:

    nice cold milk for enjoying my oreos

  45. Ariel P.M. says:

    Why, butterbeer of course! Served cold, because it’s really the only way to serve it properly.

  46. ariel says:

    I will be drinking black tea with honey.

  47. hot cocoa or well anything caffeinated and/or hot. Cuddled up with my babies (19month old boy and 3 week old girl) with my Hubby.

  48. Amber Simmons says:

    Peppermint and honey tea! Mmm…

  49. Frostie says:

    Coffee, black no sugar. Hardcore coffee to suit a hardcore episode! Or possibly milk. Because it’s rich in calcium and other things that are good for you. I’m sure the Doctor would approve of a nice mug of milk.

  50. Suzanne says:

    Coffee!!! Caffeinate! Cafeinate! Cafeinate!

  51. Hot buttered cider rum, something has to make this life better.

  56. A cup of tea would be my preferred beverage… I love tea….most likely earl grey or london cuppa.

  57. Alex says:

    I would enjoy some delicious mint tea in this mug. Owning a Whovian Hitchhiker’s mashup cup? Yes, please!

  58. Ida Rasmussen says:

    I would most often drink a cuppa Earl Grey, because it’s my favorite tea. But i guess that from time to time I would be sneaking in a banana milkshake. ‘Cause I like bananas, bananas har good. :)

  59. kaslay says:

    A hot chocolate with a bit of cinnamon, clove, peppermint, chili, orange peel, allspice, nutmeg and tasty liqueur. Or maybe I will mix it with vanilla custard. For sure something which will warm me up after a long day of running, to be ready for amazing adventures with Doctor!

  60. Penny says:

    Tea, Earl Grey, Hot. Yet I must add a spot of milk. Was sooo pleased that Captain Picard had my favorite restorative programmed in! Nothing better to sip as I enjoy the antics and adventures of the Fourth and Fifth Doctors and Companions in a DVD marathon as I knit my newest scarf in the appropriate mix and order of colors.

  61. Sedra says:

    I’d enjoy a nice cup of tea, or maybe some hot chocolate with whipped cream!

    Tea for sure

  65. MK says:

    Hot Apple Cider would be fantastic!
