Daleks are real! Daleks are real! I knew it!
Or at least the props are real. Says Gizmodo:
Marc Oakland was helping to clean a pond in Beulieu, Hampshire, UK, when he stumbled upon the head of Dr. Who's enemy, the Dalek. Apparently, there was some filming done for the show in the 80s in the area, and the head was left behind. Either that or this Dalek got turned around somewhere and died a slow, undignified death at the bottom of a marsh.
I never find anything except canoes and duck porn when I dredge my small bodies of water. :(
Thanks to Park Bench reader Jen for sending this in!
