ROY SKELTON THE VOICE OF THE DALEKS AND ZIPPY DIES

Postby sledge » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:10 pm

Roy Skelton the master Dalek Voice has been exterminated(died) and other voice overs. R.I.P.

Sad day for classic TV fans with the news that Roy Skelton, the legendary voice of The Daleks and Zippy from Rainbow has died at his home in Brighton following the effects of a stroke. He was 79.

The actor was long know for his voice work he began working on Doctor Who in 1967 and played the voice of the Daleks right up until 1988, at the same Skelton got involved with much loved ITV’s daytime kids series Rainbow when it began in 1972 providing the voices for the two warring puppets Zippy and George, both very different characters and both often having arguments with the other – at the same! A skill Skelton handled with aplomb. He stayed with the show until it ended in 1992.

Skelton had pretty much semi-retired in recent years but made an appearance in the 2002 Sarah Jane Smith audio drama Test of Nerve and in 2008 he recreated the character of Zippy for a guest appearance on Ashes to Ashes.
