Dalek Mould

Contributed by The BBC Collection

The Dalek, probably the most iconic monster in the history of science fiction television, first appeared in Episode Three of the first series of Dr Who in 1963.

Conceived by BBC designer Ray Cusick, the Daleks were made from moulded sections.

A few of the moulds have survived.

    Which model of Dalek is this from? It's certainly not the first version as that had no slats and was made by Shawcraft, if my memory serves me right.

    From the boss next to the weapons socket I'd say that this mould comes from the time of the 7th Doctor story "Rememberance of the Daleks"(1988).
