John Scott Martin, the actor who played the lead Dalek between 1964 and 1980 in the hit television series ‘Dr Who’ has died of unspecified causes. During his 110 episodes he exterminated five Doctor Whos. Martin had been suffering from Parkinson’s.

“The Daleks were a great success. They were the first real robotic bad guys and the first screen monsters where you didn’t realize there was a person inside,” said Martin in an interview before his death.

In addition to his role as a Dalek Martin also featured in ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ and ‘Pink Floyd The Wall’. He is survived by his wife Margaret and daughter Catriona. His wife paid tribute to a fun man who loved people and was loved in return.
