Dalek Found in a Pond

When Marc Oakland volunteered to clear dumped trash from a pond in Beaulieu, Hampshire, England, he didn't expect to find organisms from the planet Skaro amongst the rubbish:

The 42-year-old said: "I'd just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface. I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me.

"It must have been down there for some time because it was covered in mould and water weed, and had quite a bit of damage. One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye-stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out."

It's probably a lost prop from when the BBC shot an episode of Doctor Who back in the 1980s: Link (Photo: Solent)

What's funny is that my wife and a friend of ours was watching the 6 episodes of the genesis of the daleks last eve.. We had been commenting about low budget good writing tv shows/movies.. Making jokes about what the actual backgrounds were etc... Then we were switching to a movie, and I figured I would check out neatorama.. and WAHLAH, we find this! hehehe Great stuff!
