The Daleks were conceived by science fiction writer Terry Nation and first appeared in 1963 Doctor Who “The Daleks” . Ever sense then people have been abscessed with them. The first Daleks did’t look to imprecise with a plunger for an arm they just looked like big clumsy robot’s that at first seemed stupid to me. But once I released that their were aliens in side the robots and controlled them so they were just like little tanks.
Their is a big fan following behind the Darleks. Their are specific fan club that just follow and talk about the Daleks http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/the-daleks and their is even a guy from the U.K named Rob Hull who is in the Guinness world records book for the biggest collection of Daleks with over 1,200 Daleks.
I personally think that the Daleks are cool and are a good enemy for the doctor because at first they don’t look like something that is threatening but once you relive what they are capable of they become a frightening foe.
