    Hi @riversong1,

    Oh wow, that sounds amazing! I've always seen those competitions where you could win a life-size Dalek - they look so cool, but I'd have no idea where to put it in the house, haha!

    I'm very excited for the new series with Jodie Whittaker. I think she will be superb!

    You're very welcome! If you have any questions, then please don't hesitate to ask! :)
