You might think we’ve seen everything this world has to offer, but the truth is that great treasures are found in places like attics and backyards every day.
But Mark Oakland didn’t have to go farther than a pond in England to make an exciting new discovery. And what he found hiding there is literally straight out of science fiction!
While cleaning up the pond, Mark found something peeking out from below the scum-covered surface…
It was the head of a Dalek from Doctor Who! “I’d just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface. I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me.”
In the long-running BBC show, Daleks are the greatest villains that the titular Doctor has to face.
The Last Dalek in the Universe
Though Mark knew the show had filmed in the area sometime in the 1980s, it’s not clear how this piece of television history ended up at the bottom of a marshy pond.
What a discovery. I just hope it won’t try to “exterminate” anyone!
