Attack of the Dounreay Dalek

Back in the 1960s, Daleks were seen terrorising schoolchildren and taking a particular interest in the nuclear facility at Dounreay. Before you wonder if this is the plot for another Doctor Who lost story, rest easy; it’s the story of how a school visit was surprised by a home made Dalek.

Daleks Invade Dounreay

Thanks to the Press and Journal we have the memories of former policeman Robert Sutherland and can share the thrill he and other felt. The article is: The day a Dalek visited Wick – and terrified hundreds of screaming children.

There’s also a link to the Wick Heritage site where you can hear Robert talk about the day: The Dounreay Dalek.
