Ray Cusick, 1928-2013 – The Designer Of The Daleks Has Passed Away

The BBC have reported the death of production designer Ray Cusick at the age of 84.

The most famous and enduring of Cusick’s creations are the Daleks, which rank amongst the best bits of design in the history of television. They showcase both imagination and great craft, and I honestly believe that the look of the Dalek race has played a major part in the Doctor Who‘s ongoing popularity, definitely its pop icon status.

In this video, you’ll see Cusick visit the BBC props department, look over the Daleks and talk about their creation. It’s a must-watch for any fans of the Doctor.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. For me, Cusick made one of the greatest contributions in the history of the show. I hope to see him recognised. I wish he’d  be here with us to enjoy the celebrations.
