One of our favourite reactions to the TARDIS, the Dalek ship, and the Daleks, is that of one Mr. Morton Dill from Alabama.
Morton is on holiday and having a whale of a time on the Empire State building and believes he’s stumbled onto the set of a motion picture when he sees the TARDIS. He’s excited about everything he sees and is just having so much of a laugh . When the team step out of the TARDIS, Morton wants to know how they do all the effects and how they all fit inside the box. Then he taunts a Dalek which he believes is part of the film and is chasing the good guys- our team (Which of course is actually happening for real!)
Morton finds it all hilarious and he’s upset that he doesn’t have time to capture it on film, but Morton is just lucky that the Dalek was too occupied with chasing the Doctor to bother to exterminate him for being a pain.
It’s quite possible after the tour guide and tourists discover him trying to work out how the ships vanished, that Morton was put in an asylum.
Morton was played by Peter Purves and it was this small role that impressed William Hartnell and Maureen O’Brien who suggested he should be considered for the next companion. Verity Lambert cast him and he was the new companion Steven only three weeks later, filming immediately.
This comedic take on a Dalek encounter is such a refreshing change and we love it!
