The Time Lord's most famous arch enemy from "one of the greatest Dr Who storylines of all time" is for sale at auction in Norfolk.
But the foe that's haunted many children's nightmares over the years is slightly less terrifying because it's silent, with no sound system to utter that blood-curdling phrase: 'We will exterminate you.'
However, it's such an unusual find, the Dalek is estimated to fetch between £600-£800 at Keys' music and movie memorabilia auction in Aylsham.
The licensed model of the Dalek comes from 'Remembrance of the Daleks,' made in 1988, in a series of the 25th season of Dr Who. In this the seventh Time Lord, played by Sylvester McCoy and his companion Ace, played by Sophie Aldred, travel back to 1963 to retrieve the Hand of Omega, a powerful device created by the Doctor's race, to keep it from the Daleks.
It's widely considered by fans to be one of the greatest Dr Who stories of all time.
