Daleks  - Recurring villains on the British sci-fi series DOCTOR WHO/BBC/1963-89.


Davros Daleks

The Daleks were created by Davros, a  physically-impaired scientist (injured in an explosion) from the planet Skaro whose mad schemes included the elimination of a rival race of Thals. To this end, he created a mobile army of robot warriors called Daleks that resembled large salt & pepper shakers on wheels.

Encased within their impregnable metal shells were genetically altered beings called Kaleds (mutated by the centuries of chemical and nuclear warfare between their former selves, the Kaleds, and their race enemies, the Thals). 

Unfortunately, like Frankenstein's monster, Davros' creations became uncontrollable and they soon began their conquest of the galaxy, enslaving or destroying any life forms that stood in their way. Their most popular phrase was a garbled "EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!"

Created by writer Terry Nation, these mechanical monsters debuted on the second DR. WHO adventure "The Dead Planet" in 1963 and later appeared in the motion pictures Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965) and Dr. Who: Invasion Earth 2150 (1966). They returned to TV with the debut of the 2005 DOCTOR WHO series produced by the BBC.
