Doctor Who fans know that the BBC destroyed early Doctor Who episodes. The sci-fi series is so old it comes from a time in which no one thought to preserve things. It sounds like madness today. The Power of the Daleks is one such collection of Doctor Who stories. Until now it was gone entirely; […]
Illuminate, illuminate, ILLUMINATE! Big Finish studios’ director Jamie Anderson read the script for the Doctor Who audio play Order of the Daleks and knew they needed to build the Dalek. He noted; My main thought process was to create a “Gothic” Dalek and replace all the flat surfaces with glass designs. My initial sketches had […]

This cute tray of Doctor Who cupcakes were made for a little boy’s birthday. I think the use of marshmallow is really clever; they provide the Dalek core and with just a it of surgery make awfully cute adipose. Straight forward and intelligent Doctor Who cake design. Via Imgur.
