The New Ninja Bomber having garbed himself in a Dalek t-shirt this morning for the first day of the summer holidays, I was reminded that Terry Nation, Dalek creator and snappy dresser, originally hailed from Cardiff and is long over due elevation to Welsh Born Iconhood.

His first writing gig came when Spike Milligan commissioned him to help with the Goon Show; he ended his days working on MacGuyver in LA; and in between alighted on The Saint, The Avengers, Z Cars, The Baron, The Champions, Department S and The Persuaders, as well as creating Survivors and Blake's 7.

Now that is a fun CV.
