Of all things to find at the bottom of a pond, a Doctor Who Dalek probably is the last thing one would expect.

While volunteers were cleaning up a pond in England, 42-year-old Marc Oakland made a most unusual find when he fished out one of those beloved space pepperpots as he was poking around the bottom of the shallow pond with a rake.

“I’d just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface. I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me.”
Oakland then proceeded to examine the surprising and potentially alarming find, because, you know, there's that whole chilling “exterminate” thing.

“One of the dome lights was smashed. But the eye-stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out.”
Under the supervision of “pond warden” Tony Brown, the volunteers explored the rest of the pond just in case more alien threats could be looming, but, alas, nothing more alarming was to be found. “There were definitely no alien remnants lurking,” Brown told The Telegraph.

Still, Brown said he wanted to keep the location of that pond secret to prevent UNIT, Torchwood, a Time Lord or regular people descending on the town in order to try and scavenge more Daleks from that pond.

So why was the Dalek left behind there? Brown recalled that Doctor Who had once filmed in the area way back when in the 1980s while Colin Baker played the Sixth Doctor, but has no frakking clue in the Time Vortex as to WHY exactly that Dalek ended up in the pond in the first place. That's a mystery the Doctor himself would sure love to investigate.
