Even though I didn't know it was him, he played a big part of my Childhood. Absolutely loved Rainbow...

Rest in Peace, good sir.

Very sad. One of Who's great unsung heroes. So much of the fear we have of the Daleks and Cybermen can be attributed to his wonderful voice work. The Mondas Cybermen in particular for me personally. The voices made all the difference.

Sad

This is one of the worst years for losing Who icons. Seems like just when you're getting over one persons passing, another comes along.

Rest well, Roy. Your voice gave me more joy as a child than I can express.

Very true, sadly.

Rest well Roy, not only the voice of the Daleks and other Dr. Who creations but Zippy and George on Rainbow for 22 years.

Back when the CO Dalek Collector's Set 1 was released, and I held a Genesis Dalek in my hand for the first time, I thought of Roy Skelton. His voice was screaming "Exterminate!". Even when I played with that toy with my kids, I moved it around saying the same thing, trying my best to imitate Roy. Even today, when I look up at my shelf and see that Genesis Dalek looking down at me, I hear Roy's voice.

It's almost like we got a figure of him.

Funny thing, I never knew until today he did voices for the Cybermen. It makes sense, of course, seeing how today Briggs does both.

This is sad news. I had wondered why he wasnt asked to do the voices for the revamped version of Day of the Daleks, as he was THE voice of the daleks in the 1970's! cheers

Not be hating on him, but Nick Briggs isnt all that special.
