Remember That Doctor Who Episode With The Daleks Flying All Round Canary Wharf?

Canary Wharf is in Docklands in the East of London, not far from Forest Gate, where I spotted this on the pavement the other night:

I'm not forgetting about the lasers and everything, but now I've seen one in real life, I think that they're slightly less menacing. Forget firing paint onto their eyestalk, it looks as if putting a carrier bag over them might be enough to render them blind.
Then again, most people look taller on TV, don't they? The Daleks' agents must have demanded that they're only shot from the most flattering of angles.
