The Daleks were created by screenwriter Terry Nation for the 1963-64 Doctor Who serial "The Mutants", although designer Raymond Cusick was responsible for the iconic appearance of the race. As shown by their apparent demise at the end of their first serial, the original intention was for the Daleks to make only one appearance. However, a steep increase in viewing figures during their initial serial's broadcast and a highly favourable public response to the creatures ensured their recurrence.
