Yesterday the Daleks added to their list of attrocities when they commandeered the official Doctor Who Twitter feed in an attempt to gain complete dominance over the Twittersphere a little after lunchtime. Luckily, the BBC workers were just coming back from their lunch break and managed to wrest control of the account back in just 25 minutes.
One member of the intrepid team spoke of the importance to shield the account against future reversals of the neutron flow polarity. A transcript of the Dalek transmissions can be read below.
