Dalek on Cleeve Hill

Comments (0)

TIMELORDS beware – a famous foe is lurking in the hills around Cheltenham.

Daleks have been spotted in the woodland on Cleeve Hill by walkers.

But mystery surrounds why the Doctor's greatest enemy have landed at the spot.

David Hulbert, from Prestbury, had spotted the space invaders during a trek up the hill.

His wife, Margaret, said he had taken snaps of them to send to a relative in America.

She added: "My husband often walks the hills. He came across it several months ago.

"At the start of the Olympics an American relation put a photo on Facebook of London Bridge with Daleks as Security on it.

"We told them about this Dalek and the next morning my husband went out and took the photos and sent them to America."

The Daleks, originally from Skaro, have become iconic figures since first appearing in the sci-fi show in the 1960s.

They are set to make a reappearance in the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who on BBC1 this Saturday night.

    How come.... An intergalactic mutant super-villain in a tank-like mobile unit with weaponry a thousand years more advanced than anything possessed by humans appears out of nowhere and someone is there with a camera and is able to take a clear photograph - but whenever Tiddles the cat appears, there's either no camera or the only person around has a serious case of the shakes and takes all of his pictures using a milk-bottle as a lens. Funny that :)

    Typical, someone manages to take a good quality photo of a Dalek but you try and get one of a big cat!
