Dr Who's Dalek creator Ray Cusick dies aged 84


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.
