A "pet" name for your own Dalek - that was what we asked for - and there were hundreds of thousands of replies from children all over Britain.

The first day a steady stream of replies - the next day of flood - and the last day a torrent - that was the story of this amazing name-your-Dalek contest.

All available resources were thrown into the colossal task of going through the mail.

"Choosing the 50 winners was the most difficult job we ever had," was the verdict of Express competition staff.

What a tribute to the imagination and ingenuity of the children who entered! We hope it was fun too. Our thanks and good wishes to you all.

Where "pet" names were duplicated, aged and neatness were taken into consideration in deciding the winners in accordance with the rules of the contest.
