Behind the scenes[]

In the real world, Ealing is the home to Ealing Studios, an important filming location for many serials of the 1963 version of Doctor Who.

Dalek Invasion of Ealing 1987, one of the parodical comic stories in The Doctor Who Fun Book, dealt with just what its title implied: the real Daleks wreaking havoc in 1987 Ealing, under the guise of some BBC filming. However, due to its parodical nature, the story is not currently considered a valid source on this Wiki.
