Roy Skelton 20th July 1931-8th June 2011

Roy Skelton, the voice of the Daleks and Cybermen in many of the classic Doctor Who's and one of only a handful of people to have worked on the show alongside all seven original series Doctors, has died aged 79 following a stroke. Roy was probably most famous for voicing Zippy and George in the childrens series Rainbow.

I'm actually quite surprised, looking at the news coverage in recent days, at how well known Roy was! His passing seems to have generated a lot more attention than I'd have expected (more than Nick Courtney's, in fact). I guess Zippy and George were a big part of a lot of childhoods...
