Did the Daleks Scare You as a Child?

Other

So Im browsing the internet, and I came across a toothpick exterminator.

The word exterminator suddenly reminded me of those Daleks in Dr Who. Those weird looking things that use to scare me to death as a kid, especially when they started screeching 'EXTERMINATE'

Am I the only one afraid of the Daleks?

Glitterandgold The weeping angels were really creepy. It was the whole thing about not being able to stop yourself from blinking so you couldn't escape them that got to me

neo1 lol. I didnt really watch Star Trek as a kid. I think seeing those Daleks were enough for me. I'd rather watch Rainbow 🌈 no matter how annoying Bungle & Zippy were.

I though the daleks were funny when I was little. The only episodes that scared me were the waters of Mars and the one with the people with viruses who chased the doctor and his friends around trying to touch them so they would get infected
