Doctor Who - Slitheen Electrifier Prop

This little gadget was used in the episode Aliens of London to eliminate the members of Unit gathered at 10 Downing Street to discuss the Alien problem.










Here's a pic of the original prop that I took at the Doctor Who exhibition in Brighton, England last year:



I happened to be browsing in Maplin's (UK equivalent to Radio Shack) recently, searching for parts for another project, when I happened to spot the unmistakeable red fliptop from the Slitheen prop. After a quick search around, I managed to locate all the other parts the propmasters had used to make the prop. Score.

The red push button housed under the flip-top activates a flashing red led, powered by a 9 volt battery housed in the main unit. The only part not acquired from Maplin's is aluminium strip across the top of the flip-top. A nice little prop and very affordable.
