Dr Who Dalek Talking Alarm Clock wake up to the sound of an angry alien
The Red Ferret Journal ^ | 3/10/10 | Nigel

Posted on 03/10/2010 8:45:02 AM PST by Reaganesque

I don’t know, I’m thinking the only thing worse than being woken up by the ‘exterminate’ of this Dr Who Dalek Talking Alarm Clock thing, would be if it rolled up to your bed and shoved the sink plunger into your eyeball repeatedly until you made a move for the bathroom. Man, masochism comes in strange shapes nowadays, that’s for certain. $37.15.

At 25 centimetres tall, this golden replica of those dastardly Daleks features an alarm clock with LCD display set into the Dalek’s chest. When the alarm goes off, your Dalek’s ears and eyes (we thought they were just knobs) will light up and you’ll be treated to 3 of their famous phrases: ‘You would make a good Dalek’, ‘You are the enemy of the Daleks, you must be destroyed’ and who could forget that heart-warming cry ‘Exterminate!’.

I'm torn. The geek in me screams "I WANT ONE!" but the guy inside me who likes to sleep says "I'LL THROW IT OUT THE WINDOW IF YOU GET ONE!!"

Don’t think I want one of those, but perhaps a Dr. Who inviting me to join him on an adventure would be fun. :-)

I remember these things very well. I grew up with Tom Baker and his 12 ft scarf as the Doc.

I also remember very well, seeing human feet underneath the daleks as they scurried across a car-park

We have come a long way, but they were pretty entertaining back then

My kitty alarm clocks don’t have an off button. They make the Dalek Talking Alarm Clock look pretty civilized in comparison :)

Those would probably be easy to make, sort of an accessory to the vacuum rather than as a different model. Hmmmm.....

I think for a talking alarm clock, I prefer the “Jeeves” alarm clock offered by Hammacher-Schlemer, which utters such charming announcements as “It appears to be morning. Very inconvenient, I agree. I believe it is the rotation of the earth that is to blame, sir,” and “I feel sure you have slept soundly, feel thoroughly refreshed, and await the day with the anticipation of an energetic gazelle.”

I have a little cd player timed to wake me up,

but I persist in placing classical guitar, Chopin nocturnes and Handel’s Messiah on the spindle.

I wake up to the sound of the unit activating, but am qyickly lulled back into dreamland by the exquisite music!

I would have sworn that the name was spelled Darlek, but I guess not. Sure seemed that is the way it was pronounced on the shows.

The geek & collector won out. Bought one for the collection over a year ago.

The Guy Inside also wins, because it isn’t used at the bedside; since I retired, I only use the alarm if I need to be before noon.

Maybe we’ll name our next cat Dalek.

I’m waiting to see New Guy. I had trouble when Tennant took over from Eccleston but I got over it. On the other hand, the guy who took over from Baker never had a chance.

Peter Davison was excellent. The key to playing the part is to be as different from your predecessor as possible. If the actors had all been William Hartnell clones the thing would have folded a long time ago.

Baker was my first Doctor, and such a big personality, that he just overwhelmed Davison. Combined with the fact that I moved around that time to a place where they didn’t show it as the cut-together stories once a week but instead ran the half hour episodes in an afternoon kids slot every day, I lost interest. No slight on Davison.

"My kitty alarm clocks don’t have an off button. They make the Dalek Talking Alarm Clock look pretty civilized in comparison...

...But Hello Kitty has no mouth, how does it make noise?"

For a very brief amount of time I had a kitty alarm that peed on my thankfully covered sleeping bod when she felt it time to get fed.

A very brief time actually.

(Current kitty alarm just stares at my sleeping self until the mind bending "feed me or play with me" feline brain waves have their inevitable dream crushing effect :)

Now your talking! A Dalek alarm clock would work once. It would be rendered non-functional after I whipped it across the room to shut it up.

It would be amusing until I followed it's instructions and defenestrated it. That would probably be the first morning.

But the "Jeeves" clock?
