My sincere thanks for letting me join, especially as I am conspicuously NOT from Shepherds Bush, being a Scotsman less than a day's drive from John O' Groats! I am a serious amateur fan of ''Doctor Who'' and I am attempting to collect any reminiscences of the very first Dalek publicity stunt, held on the 23rd December 1963 around Shepherds Bush. Alas I do not have access to all of the photographs taken, but I do have three - a pair of Daleks holding a cabbage at a market-stall and two showing Daleks attempting to board a bus to Hayes End.A kind Londoner let me know that the bus station was on Shepherds Bush Green near the old BBC Empire and I am fairly sure that it is the station designated ''Stop P'' on Google Maps, presently opposite a Chinese dim-sum restaurant called Shikumen. I would be extremely grateful if you could please let me know if anyone has reminiscences or recollections about this photo-shoot - after all, the Daleks themselves had not yet appeared in full on the small screen [they would do so five days later in the second episode of the first Dalek serial], so it must have been quite perplexing to see these strange inhuman things!Anything else Dalek related from the '60s is very welcome.Letters & so on should be addressed 7 Clunie Crescent, Dornoch, Sutherland, Scotland IV25 3NH. I can't seem to get images to upload, contact email@example.com to get the photographs sent to you.

Hi Patrick, unfortunately I cannot help with your search but what I can do, with your permission, is repost your request on another local forum called Nextdoor which may get a larger audience. The criteria for joining this site is your postcode which obviously means it is not something you can do but I am a member and would happily put your request on there.
