Derek Dodd was educated at Gillingham Grammar School and The Rochester School of Art where he studied theatre and set design. His work is seen in many classic television series including Dixon of Dock Green and Dr Who, where he made set designs for the Power of the Daleks and the Wheel in Space. He also worked with some of the most formative of writers and directors from the television age including Stephen Frears, Stephen Poliakoff and Dennis Potter. His work has received BAFTA and EMMY nominations.
The Power of the Daleks was first broadcast by the BBC in six weekly parts from 5th November to the 10th December 1966 and first introduced the Doctors second incarnation played by Patrick Troughton. The master tapes of all six episodes were erased in the late 1960s, while the copies kept for foreign sales on 16mm film were destroyed in 1974. Their destruction meant that the only information to survive on the series was limited to stills photography and films made by fans when the programmes were broadcast. The Daleks who first appeared in Dr. Who in 1963 were an alien race of merciless and murderous creatures whose sole aim was world domination and the extermination of inferior races. They were created by the writer Terry Nation and bought to life by Raymond Cusick, who designed the shells that are widely familiar to us now.
The archive material in this lot is rare as it contains vivid colour negatives and modern photographs of the sets designed by Dodd, the actors and a candid shot of the Doctor, when the programme was shot and broadcast in black and white.
