‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: build your own Dalek
Letters of Note — an awesome site that publishes cool old documents and letters — recently unearthed a most intriguing Doctor Who artifact:
From the production offices of the BBC in the early-1980′s, we have a rather cute, and for some reason – to me at least – highly amusing letter informing an avid Doctor Who fan named Ronald that his request for Dalek blueprints had been successful. It’s also a form letter, meaning the BBC must have been inundated with requests of a similar nature since the blueprints were initially released to the public, in 1973.

Are the Dalek blueprints posted at TomR’s Media Creations the same ones lucky Ronald received? I suppose only Ronald could tell us for certain…
