A Doctor Who fan has celebrated his love of the TV time-lord by carving the biggest image of a Dalek ever created into a maze.

Farmer Tom Pearcy’s tribute to the BBC show is over 300m, or 1,000ft, long and cut out of an 18-acre field of more than one million maize plants.

The design makes up York Maze, the largest maze in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

Along with the enormous Dalek the bold design also includes an image of the first Doctor, William Hartnell, and the most recent, Matt Smith.

Colin Baker said: “It is fantastic to see how much interest there is in the 50th anniversary of the show. I have been invited to join events all over the world this year, but what York Maze have created with their giant maize maze has to be one of the most imaginative ways to mark the 50th anniversary I have seen.

“Who would have thought almost thirty years after I played the Doctor that the show would continue to go from strength to strength reaching a new generation of fans? It is great that children and their families will be able to have their own Doctor Who-inspired adventures in the York Maze this summer.”
