A few months ago, I saw a pattern for an awesome pair of knitted Dalek fingerless gloves (which you can find here). Being a big Doctor Who fan, I thought they were awesome, as I said. However, I really don't like knitting. In the last five years, I think I've only knitted two things - a replacement pair of gloves for a colleague who lost one of her favourites (for which I got paid), and the platinum square of the knitted periodic table (I'm doing a PhD in chemistry, working with Pt. I had to do it!). I'm also planning on making some knee-high Doctor Who socks in the next couple of months. It takes something special like my love of both knee-high socks and Doctor Who to out weigh my loathing of knitting.
Given this, I decided to try and make a crochet version for a friend's birthday present. You can see the finished results below. The wrist has a series of 3D "Dalek bumps", while the hand has slightly raised ridges like the bottom of the helmet.
