Yes, it's official! I have now met an alien! Yep, a close-encounter, finally! Well...kind of. Unfortunately, this is just an on-screen alien, specifically a Dalek from the BBC TV show Dr. Who. I ran into this metal chap a couple of weeks ago, but he hardly seemed excited by the experience. In fact, he just stood there, cold and unsmiling. Then again, that's what Dalek's are like, so I should have expected nothing less.
