Nice find 

The 3-minute vid finds our hero, Dr. Who, walking pleasantly through the woods (because there always is one) when he’s set upon by easily the leggiest Dalek (named Dalekor) you’ve ever seen, along with his nefarious gang of Kung fu-knowing Cyber Men. From there, Dr. Who puts on his fightin’ suit and begins to take out the foes, eventually employing his trusty Sonic Screw Sword. Dalekor! The Fiend!

My family is leaving next week so I’ve picked out my reading list. On a two week family vacation I was able to read five book, now we’ll see if I can read three while they’re out of town. I’ve had all three of these books since last year and have been dying to crack the covers.
