A time-travelling telephone box and mutant cyborgs bent on extermination were part of a Canterbury couple's Doctor Who wedding day.

Sci-fi buffs Rob Wilson and Lisa Strickland tied the knot yesterday at their Rolleston home in front of close family and friends – and a replica of the Tardis from the television series about a time-travelling doctor.

There was even an appearance by the show's most enduring villains – the evil Daleks whose catch-cry is "exterminate".

But their dastardly plot to rule the world was momentarily foiled when the radio-controlled Dalek ring-bearer broke down halfway up the aisle.

Wilson said as it was the second marriage for himself and Strickland,they did not want a "boring" traditional ceremony.

"We wanted to have a fun wedding and we did," he said.

"We met through our mutual love of science fiction, and we wanted to express that at the wedding."
