It is with deepest regret that DWO announces the passing of Classic Doctor Who Actor, Roy Skelton.

Roy is best known to Doctor Who fans for providing the voices of The Daleks in the Classic Series, as well as supporting roles:

The Ark (Monoid voices), The Tenth Planet (Cybermen voices), The Evil of the Daleks (Dalek voices), The Ice Warriors (Computer voice), The Wheel in Space (Cybermen voices), The Krotons (Kroton voices), Colony in Space (as Norton), Planet of the Daleks (Dalek voices and as Wester), The Green Death (as James), Genesis of the Daleks (Dalek voices), The Android Invasion (as Chedaki), The Hand of Fear (as King Rokon), Destiny of the Daleks (Dalek voices), The Five Doctors (Dalek voice), Revelation of the Daleks (Dalek voices), Remembrance of the Daleks (Dalek voices), The Curse of Fatal Death (Dalek voices).

Roy died after suffering a stroke and was 79 years of age.

DWO would like to extend our wishes to Roy's family and friends.

It isn't just you Chadwick, Nicholas Courtney, Elisabeth Sladen and now Roy Skelton amongst others. This is a very grim time to be a middle-aged Who fan. Sad news. As his Rainbow colleague Geoffrey Hayes said in the Metro, his ability to switch from 1 voice to another  so quickly that you thought the 2 were talking over each other was an incredible talent!

A vocal genius

We have lost three great actors, or from hearing from people who met/knew them, great characters.

I first grew up with Rainbow, then when brave enough to come round to the front of the sofa, Doctor Who.

My thought are with his family & friends.  Rest In Peace Roy xxx
