Thank you for all the couches we've hid behind.

 

News of the passing of the original production designer behind everyone’s favorite pepperpots of ultimate evil and destruction rippled through all of time and space this weekend.

Nicholas Briggs farewell

Mark Gatiss farewell

It is truly remarkable how even today, in an age growing increasingly obsessed with the gritty reboot and increasingly devoted to the sheen of computer generated animations and special effects, that Raymond Cusick’s creation has remained true to its original design with only minor cosmetic changes over the years…and yet, he dreamed of so much more.

Thank you for all the couches we’ve hid behind, Ray.  We’ll miss you.

While it’s a well known fact that Daleks traditionally only feel anger and hatred, if you have any artwork that you’d like to share with Whedonopolis featuring the Daleks paying their respects to one of their real life creators, please send them to jeremy@whedonopolis.com by Friday, March 1st at Noon PST. We’ll post our favorites in a follow-up tribute post.
