A story we've been following here at Freshblog may turn out to have been a big publicity stunt. Scotsman.com: "A Dalek that has been missing for more than a week after it was allegedly stolen from a tourist site turned up safe and well [June 14th] on top of a mythic landmark in Somerset. The owners of the 5ft Dalek issued a 500stlg reward after it was stolen from Wookey Hole Caves, near Wells, last Monday.
Alleged kidnappers then left a ransom note pinned to a plunger arm that had been severed from the prop. The Dalek was found early today at the top of Glastonbury Tor and is now being ferried down via a stretcher. Staff from Wookey Holes Caves have denied that the theft was part of an elaborate stunt to boost ticket sales for a Doctor Who Convention they are staging this weekend."
Was it trying to communicate with the mothership, or wake its colleagues from their underground bunker? Perhaps we'll never know...
Wasting Police time, perhaps?
