Behind the scenes Edit
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.
