Simon started with Destiny of the Daleks at the age of 3.Romana fell down the shaft and the Daleks crashing through the walls. He was hooked from that day. When he wasn’t making scale drawings of the TARDIS he was in his parents garage making one. He had an obsession for making all things 'Who' which led him to become a Carpenter/Joiner for 12 years. “My dream has always been to make full size TARDISes. I am now the This Planet Earth TARDIS builder. Making dreams come true for others!”Favourite Classic Episode: LogopolisFavourite 05> Episode: School ReunionFavourite Doctor: Tom BakerFavourite Companion: Elisabeth SladenFavourite Monster: Daleks
Nick is an East End boy with many years under his belt of being an Engraver. His specialisation and forte is the procurement of Dalek weaponry. His moment of Glory came when he played an Ogron in the Special Edition Day of the Daleks DVD much to the delight of his grandchildren, Katie and Adam.
Rob has a strong attention to detail and his experience has a long history in the Classic Car Automotive Paint and Aircraft Paint Industry. He goes home each day looking slightly tinted in Dalek colour. He particularly likes the New Series Dalek Bronze colour as this gives him a fake suntan effect for free. A bonus of the job.
Arthur fabricates a diverse range of the metal parts and has a second nature with all things metallic. His favourite planet is Pluto (which was declassified as a planet in 2006).
