Dalek World Record Attempt Successful
Doctor Who fans world-wide have exterminated their way into the record books for the largest number of Daleks (or people wearing Dalek costumes) in one place. There were loads of different shapes and different coloured Daleks in attendance to attempt this record. Also in attendance was Raymond Cusick (Dalek Designer). The original figure to be broken was 50 Daleks and the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry managed to cough up a staggering 68 Daleks so well done to all that attended. The Museum of Science and Industry is also currently home to the Doctor Who Up-Close Exhibition. The exhibition includes several characters from the latest series three of the Doctor Who such as the Judoon and the Carrionites. It also holds, in the exhibition, a four metre-long Empress of Racnoss character, the eight-feet tall Slitheen, Clockwork Robots, ‘Sisters of Plenitude’, ancient Face of Boe and many, many more.
