Kids' Dalek video

Steve sez,
This is really lovely... just bumped into it while looking for Dr Who clips on youtube with my recently-Dr-Who-obsessed-6-yr-old son who is filling in the essential history/backstory of the doctor!

Homebrew movie (6:43) a family made while on holiday.
- Gets the tone just right.
- Re-uses themes/scenes from the recent end of series 2-parter with Davros/Daleks/many-companions.
- Wonderful low-fi special-FX (flying daleks, sound FX, EXPLOSIONS!)
- watch for the credits at the end.

Fave part: 3 yr old Davros wearing a "Mr Happy" t-shirt!

  1. Brilliant!

    That was great, and the effects and acting were levels of magnitude better than so much crap on TV.

    Well done, all involved!

  2. I loved this so much, and i completely agree with Vetlemakt. Post all your comments on the video itself so the kids can see how much we all love it, I bet they’d like that.

  3. very sweet. Reminds me of the wonderful film ‘Son of Rambow’… kind of a slightly higher budget version of the same idea…

  4. Awwww!

    That was amazingly cute. The boys were so adorable! Somebody did a great job putting this together. Scary, isn’t it, how the effects are as good as a lot of Classic Who?

  5. That was fantastic! Really cute, great special effects. I want to do one with my own kids…what editing software did you use????

  6. KTEH – the PBS in San Jose – is organizing a Dr. Who fan video contest. Should be happening in a month or so. The local Legion of Rasillon is planning some entries. I’ve already seen one YouTube video of a San Francisco apartment invaded by The Ood.
    The BBC seems much cooler about letting fan culture do their thing – which of course keeps people loving the shows instead developing the same resentment people have towards the record companies.

  7. Looks like they did this during they vacations in France, the houses looks like the ones in Provence or Luberon.

    More and more brits in those regions, these days (to my pleasure, they bring they cute daugthers).

  8. zapan @ 17 – I thought Cornwall, mainland UK, but historically and culturally linked to Brittany in the north of France…
    I’m a *teeny* bit bothered by your interest in their “daugthers” (sic) (sick?) …

  9. #19… no way is it Cornwall: way too dry. Has to be somewhere much further south.

    Anyway, the video is quality, and I raise my hat to whoever put it all together. Nice one.
