Fans of Dr Who may know already that one of the most famous episodes was made in Hayes. Entitled 'Day of the Daleks' it was filmed way back in 1971 under the bridge that takes the Great Western Railway over the canal. I came across an email on it when looking for something else on my computer and thought that readers might be as intrigued as I was.
I was born and lived a couple of roads away from The Straight which was used as one of the locations in The Invasion of the Dinosaurs in 1974 when I was living there.Bull's Bridge isn't far either.These west London locations hold so much fascination as they transformed mundane streets into places of wonder.
Interesting thread that doesn't have enough posts for my liking
Day Of THe Daleks was the very first Dalek story I saw and that alone makes it special
Interestingly enough I do remember that fans had a problem trying to find out where the bridge was located> I think DWM circa 1987/88 did a short locations series in the publication and they were stumped . It wasn't until I got connected to the net in 2001 and found the Doctor Who locations website that I found out where it was. It's the one location I would make a homage to
