"The Dalek Death Ray wrappers was a revelation - I was kicking myself for not recognizing the style but then the repro is mushy at best and I didn't think Bellamy would do stuff like this!" Of course when he says 'mushy' I don't think he was making a pun - these wrappers were covering ICE lollies, after all and had a tendency to make the wrappers mushy! However, in his usual helpful manner, he supplied some examples so we could see what they looked like.
Shaqui tells me that Wall's Ice Cream published two series of Dalek material in the first half of the 1970s. The first series was called 'From the world of the Daleks...', while the second non-Bellamy one is called 'The Incredible Daleks...' The titles from the first series are:
- The Grenium Invisibility System
- Daleks and the Ancient Britons
- The Swamp Creatures of Terroth
- When the Daleks Flooded the Earth!
- The Cyclops Z-Ray
- A Dalek Deep Space Battle Cruiser
- Dalek Officer
