Have you noticed that the design of the Dalek "skirt" is strikingly similar to the columns at the end of the platforms at Whitechapel station. Maybe these columns were the inspiration?
Or maybe not. Either way, it's good to know we're not the only ones who watch too much space drama, having already noted the likeness between the concept Routemaster and the Aliens off of Alien.
So anyone else spotted a sci-fi icon lurking round London in disguise?
