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)

I don't know about anyone else, but if I saw a Dalek head coming out of a pond near me, I doubt I'd take the time to investigate.

I'd be doing the my best impersonation of Jesus at the Red Sea.

LOL! I wonder. Suppose that this hadn't been found now and remained in it's watery grave into the future. When someone digging up peat from this former pond might find this unusual artifact. Another ancient mystery to add to the list.

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!
