DOCTOR WHO fans trying to set a world record for the most Daleks in one place say their failure does not compute - because the rules allow people in costumes as well as replica robots.

The attempt, organised by the group Sons of Skaro, saw 87 of the iconic Doctor Who villains gather at the Olympiad sports centre in Chippenham, Wiltshire - eight short of the 95 Guinness record set in 2008 in Leicester.

But Sons of Skaro's Robert Phillips said they claim a 'moral victory' as they had 73 'actual Dalek' robots and 14 costumes, compared to 44 robots and 51 in costumes at the record event.

know it is not official but there has never been this many Daleks in one room,' he said.

Colin Baker, who played the sixth Doctor in the long-running BBC serial, was among guests at the event, in aid of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.
