The man who designed one of science fiction's most famous villains, the Dalek, has died at the age of 84.

In 1963 Ray Cusick was asked to create a race of aliens for a new programme called Doctor Who.

The Daleks proved to be a sensation and have reappeared throughout the near 50 years of the show's history.
