Too cool. I've been a Whovian since the zipper backed monster days. There used to be a group from the Tornonto area that made great props. They'd come to conventions. I think they were called "The not necessarily the BBC prop department."

ZOMG! That looks very cool -- and a far sight more impressive than the already cool exhibit I saw further West (CF).

Yes - but the prices will EXTERMINATE!!! your credit card.

(btw - have I mentioned that I've stood inside the actual (1960's model) TARDIS? It's smaller on the inside than it is on the outside)

The druidlings saw a YouTube video of someone tormenting a cat with a remote controlled model Dalek, so naturally they begged me to get one.

Turns out the remote has a 'fire' button, if you get 2 you can play Dalek Wars (laser-tag for Daleks) with them. Just spent the last couple of hours EX-TER-MI-NAT-ING the druidlings, heaps of fun.

I might have to get one of those for DM. She wasn't feeling well yesterday. So she lay on the couch having an old school Doctor marathon.
Need to get all the episodes I taped off PBS onto DVD before they die.

What kind of Daleks did you get? Some seem quite pricy.

They're only 6" tall, you see a lot of ads for the 13" ones, which are a lot more expensive, but in this case, Size Is Not Important, the little ones are heaps of fun.

If you're getting 2, make sure you get a Red and a Blue, they're on different frequencies. Cost $50 each at the local Comics and Assorted Geekabilia shop or UKP 20 from Amazon UK
