    "The Doctor Will Be Interested IN This

    His group, who were clearing rubbish near Beaulieu, Hampshire, had already fished out an old table football game, dozens of lager cans and even a muddy skateboard.
    But the last thing they were expecting to find was a full size head from one of the Time Lord’s most feared adversaries complete with its distinctive eye stalk.
    ‘It must have been down there for some time because it was covered in mould and water weed, and had quite a bit of damage,’ said Mr Oakland.
    ‘One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out.’
    Who's this? Mr Oakland made the discovery at the pond in Beaulieu, Hampshire

    The pitiless Daleks, famed for killing their enemy with a death ray after screeching ‘exterminate’, were taken to the area to film episodes in the 1980s.
    Pond warden Tony Brown, 70, who led the volunteers, said: ‘We made a very thorough search of the rest of the bottom of the pond and there were definitely no alien remnants lurking.
    ‘We”ve all agreed it best to keep the pond’s exact location under wraps.
    ‘The last thing we want are sci-fi fans descending on the pond frantically seraching for other dalek parts.’
    Mr Brown, who has been helping clear out the area for the past eight years, said: ‘We”ve dredged up everything from shopping trolleys, toys, and bicycles.
    ‘But this is the first time a dalek’s appeared. We have no idea how it ended up in there, or how long ago.

    I don't care who you are, that's funny right there. :) The PBS station out here used to show Dr. Who, Blake's 7, and a couple of other old (even then) sci fi shows, other wise I would probably have no idea what a darlek is.

    Dream on. Some geek will find it, and spread the word to their fellow geeks. Take advantage of it. Set up booths charging for the opportunity to dive the lake, print t shirts, the whole nine yards. Put the original one under glass and ond display. $5 a picture with the drowned darleck. They'll make a forturne.
