A Doctor Who Emporium and Erstwhile Boutique of Nonsense and Ramblings about Daleks, the TARDIS and Other Stuff.

A new Doctor has arrived! Peter Capaldi is here as the very different 12th Doctor. Who could have thought there would really be a 12th Doctor? I've been researching Cybermen a lot recently and completed a whole selection of 3D models. You can see my new 3D Cybermen Gallery and learn about the differences between the costumes. I still have a Facebook Page! Please go and "Like" it here. You can hassle me with all kinds of stupid incomprehensible questions and comments. And Follow Me on Twitter. We keep updating our extensive Dalek Prop History website which is yonder, and Jon has done a brilliant piece on the exchibition props. We've a new thing going up soon plus a whole load of research into the New Series Daleks which will really surprise you. I finished building an Imperial Dalek and now have two Cybermen too. Well, most of two. Bits are held on with elastic bands and neither have hands.

Dating back to 1997 when I started playing around in 3D, here are a selection of models from - shock horror - TV Shows other than Doctor Who. I know, it's bizarre isn't it.

Eight months in the making - although mostly on 'the back burner' this was an idea I had after rendering a Dalek Supreme in a corridor. What if 'Planet of the Daleks' had been made in the 21st century for the big screen? Here is my movie trailer for this epic story featuring New Series Daleks and a space ship which isn't made from reflective cardboard.

It depends how you measure it! Tom Baker is the answer, but you could say it's Paul McGann. But then who was second? Tennant, Pertwee, McCoy and Hartnell all have a case...
