My Fair Dalek

I broke my own “books and plays only” rule for this Dalek, but I really wanted to draw that hat. This seems to be a common inclination in the the Dalek Game.

My mother read George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion to us when we were growing up – she’s American and can’t do English accents of any variety, so when I finally saw the musical of My Fair Lady I had to get used to Eliza Doolittle not having a southern drawl (apparently my mother’s equivalent of Cockney).

My family does love the musical, however. It is frequently quoted, my father and I often burst into songs from it, and I distinctly remember my parents stalking each other around the kitchen, singing “Just you wait, ‘Enry ‘Iggins”.
