Dalek held captive
by Doc on Jun.11, 2005, under General News
A Dalek, believe to be an original prop, was stolen from Wookey Hole Caves in Wells, England, and apparently being held for ransom. The “plunger” weapon was left behind with a note that read, “We are holding the Dalek captive. We demand further instructions from the Doctor. For the safety of the human race we have disarmed and removed its destructive mechanism,” signed by “Guardians of the Planet Earth”. Publicity stunt or prank?
