Damn, wouldn’t it have been cool to have been the guy who found this? A Dalek, lost from Doctor Who since the 1970s or 1980s:
Workers were baffled how the Dr Who relic ended up there, but it may have been in the murky water for more than 30 years after being dumped during location filming in the ’70s.
Marc Oakland, 42, who made the discovery, 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 in front of me.
“It was covered in mould and weed, and had quite a bit of damage. One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye-stalk was intact.”
The discovery of the Dalek — famous for its Exterminate threat — was made near Beaulieu, Hants.
Former Doctor Jon Pertwee made a number of episodes on location in the county during the 1970s.
The BBC also took Daleks there for filming in the 1980s when Colin Baker was Timelord.
Meanwhile, they’re keeping the exact location secret, to prevent a horde of Who fans descending upon it to look for more Daleks.
