dr who ya' gonna' call?


We have a bit of a situation here at fruit towers. Almut Sprigade sent us in an army of psychadelic dalek hats. As we're prone to do with the hats we particularly admire, we put them up on display on one of our picnic benches, so that people wandering past could revel in their technicoloured brilliance.

But there was something crafty about these daleks. Were they really just hats? Or were they actual daleks? Could it be that their multicoloured exterior was simply there to fool us, deflecting attention away from their plans for global domination? First Sainsbury's, then the world. Mwah hah hah. We weren't sure. So we set up a secret camera to record them.

Here we can see them on day one, looking calm - meek even - but eerily still.

Two days later and the little blighters seemed to have moved closer to the camera.

By the time day three popped round, it was undeniable - the daleks were on the move.

Led by the purple one and what looks to be Elmo from Sesame Street, they moved quickly, destroying everything in their wake. We found our hidden camera yesterday amidst a pile of smashed smoothie bottles, its outer casing cracked, flash not working, a tear in its shattered lens.

And then nothing for days. No sign of the army of psychadelic daleks.

Until this afternoon. When a secondary camera caught this ominous scene. IT Sam trapped in the phone box with nowhere to run, the daleks bearing down on him. He doesn't stand a chance.

How can we compete against such reckless aggression? What will happen when the daleks reach the phone box? Will IT Sam live to tell the tale?

We'll keep you posted. In the mean time, if you have any suggestions as to how we can deal with this miniature, multicoloured, but very real threat, please let us know. The fate of fruit towers depends on you...
