Fifty-one-year old Steven Clark is suing the BBC over the creature Davros, the Dalek villain on "Doctor Who," alleging that he and not the late Terry Nation created Davros. He also says that he invented the name "Kaled," a new character introduced in the series. Mr. Clark says Davros and the Kaleds were in a competition entry he sent as a teenager to TV Action magazine in 1972 and he has original sketches to prove it. He is asking for damages in the amount of profits the BBC has earned over the years from the Davros character. More here from the Daily Mail. The BBC has requested a 28-day extension of time to prepare for trial.
