This confirms one of our long held suspicions: All toddlers want to take over the world and exterminate or subjugate the rest of the population. Don’t believe us? Watch that video again, paying careful attention to the smiles on those toddlers’ faces.

And here’s the Disney Daleks:
Very amusing and clever work here. And for the reading impaired: This is an imaginary movie. Disney isn’t making a “Doctor Who” movie. Disney will never make a “Doctor Who” movie.
We’d also like to do a shout out to artist who made these paintings. Unfortunately, iO9 doesn’t give his name, only his iO9 screen name Cristoval. But we’re sure anyone interested in contacting him can do so through that link. We think Cristoval will land some work thanks to this bit of whimsy.

Mr Croucher was bitten by the matchstick modelling bug 30 years ago when he watched his nephew struggling to make a model of his mother’s house.
