Daleks of The North - Preview of Interview with Andy Shaw of Shawcraft Robotics

Daleks of the North

One Liner:

In an inconspicuous garden shed in a leafy northern suburb there is a lurking menace which has the capability to destroy life as we know it. EU comes out from behind the sofa to see if we can't maybe manage to save the universe in the last few minutes of the final reel.

Synopsis:

There is no getting away from it, not that I want to, but Daleks are so damned good! Daleks are the biz. Daleks are the best thing to come out of BBC television in its entire history. Supposedly the creation of the writer Terry Nation, although may have been as much or more contribution from the BBC designer, Raymond P Cusick, the Daleks have been one of the cornerstones of the success of the BBC hit drama series, Doctor Who. In this film, Ecstatic Union interviews Andy Shaw of Shawcraft Robotics, and tries to understand what it is about full-size lifesize replica Daleks that make them such a desirable addition to every self-respecting Dr. Who fan's collection of monsters. In an inconspicuous garden shed in a leafy northern suburb there is a lurking menace which has the capability to destroy life as we know it. Andy is as professional as amateurs get about building robots... perhaps even more professional than that. In any case one thing is for sure that when it comes to building fullsize daleks and model robots this man knows his stuff. EU comes out from behind the sofa to see if we can't maybe manage to save the universe in the last few minutes of the final reel.
