UK “Cops” Use Dalek to Scare People into Isolating

 |  |  April 5, 2020


When it comes to scary monsters from science fiction, Doctor Who’s Daleks rank high on the list. These soulless robotic aliens go around the universe, exterminating all those who stand in their way. So what better way to get people to stay inside of their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, then to bring a Dalek to their doorsteps?

Somewhere in the UK, somebody programmed a Dalek to drive around a neighborhood and proclaim “ALL HUMANS MUST KEEP INDOORS. ALL HUMANS WILL SELF ISOLATE. BY ORDER OF THE DALEKS.” If that doesn’t get you to shelter in place, nothing will. Except maybe some weeping angels hanging outside your front door.

While I was hoping this was done by an actual police department, the stunt actually appeared on the Sandford Police twitter feed. And if you don’t know who the Sandford Police are, you need to stop what you’re doing, and go stream Hot Fuzz right now.
