THERE was a time, not so long ago, when I had given up hope of ever again hearing the sound of children shouting “EXTERMINATE!” at each other in their best grating, metallic voices.
That pessimism was dispensed with recently when Ronnie and Reggie started doing their own impersonation of Daleks. In fact, I was prompted to write this when Reggie, a few moments ago, started doing his Dalek impression while wearing an upturned plastic laundry basket over his head.
So thank you, Russell T. Davies and the BBC.
I feel as if my whole life/Doctor Who obsession has now been validated. Now I don’t feel quite so defensive about owning my three remote-controlled Daleks (and one remote-controlled Davros)…
Not a Harris child in a laundry basket
PS: Did you know that when the new series of Doctor Who was first scheduled for broadcast in 2005, BBC Scotland nearly refused to show it at the same time as the rest of the network? Sacrilege!
