Doctor Who: Daleks' creator Terry Nation has blue plaque at Cardiff home
Dalek creator Terry Nation has had a blue plaque unveiled in his honour at the house in Cardiff where he was born. Nation, who died in 1997 aged 66, was a screenwriter on Doctor Who when he came up with the ideas for the aliens who are almost as famous as the Time Lord himself. The Daleks made their first appearance in December 1963. Nation was born in the suburb of Llandaff, Cardiff and near to the childhood home of fellow writer Roald Dahl.
