From the registration I'd suggest a Morris JB 10cwt. van, 1957+.

With the rear roller/shutters its an ex-GPO parcels van.

You may be right, Sunbar, but after fifty years or so I don't remember the GPO using JBs for parcels; they tended to use bigger vehicles, IIRC Morris-Commercial LCs for that. And if the registration isn't fake, wouldn't a GPO vehicle have a London rather than a Middlesex registration?

You're more than likely right chris40. The roller-shutters were not restricted to GPO vans - baker's vans I remember commonly had them but I don't remember anything as small as this.

At one time the post office in London were reserved all combinations with GPO, which otherwise would have been issued for Brighton. I think this stopped in the mid 1970s.

That's true; I'd forgotten about that, but that was the only exception and it probably expired in 1974 when registrations were computerised.
BTW note how the van's keeping both eyes on the Daleks in the first thumbnail ... :D

Agreeing with chris40, it would be badged 'Morris' not 'Morris-Commercial' the registration dates it as either 1959 or 1960 I believe.

Given this film was supposed to be set in 2150, then this van had been trundling around London for 191 years!

RIP van, 1959-2150.
