DOCTOR Who fans posed with a Dalek at a bookshop's birthday celebrations.

The Dalek invaded Kirkdale Bookshop, Kirkdale, Sydenham, on Saturday.

The idea came to owner Geraldine Cox, 58, when the bookshop had a recent Harry Potter evening.

She said: "We just thought it would be a bit of fun and it seems to have captured everyone's imagination."

Ms Cox opened the shop in 1966 with her father Alec.

They decided to open in Sydenham because there was no bookshop in the area at the time.
