To celebrate 60 years of adventures in space and time, one of the Doctor’s most feared enemies has taken up residency in a new, free display next to Tomorrow’s World until Wednesday 3 January 2024. See an incredible custom-built Dalek, assembled by the workshop team at the National Science and Media Museum, with instructions from a vintage edition of the Radio Times on how readers could make their own. This tribute to the genius of Doctor Who highlights how the show has continued to inspire fan devotion, imagination and creativity over six decades.
