After the Daleks a new horror— VOORDS (1964)

1964-04-09 Daily Express.jpg

[edit]

IT'S a Voord, and it's out of this world. But, watch out, it's on the way with other Voords into a million sitting-rooms.

The Voords will be coming down to earth on Saturday— and the B.B.C. is hoping children -will find them as deliciously spine-chilling as the Daleks.

For the Voords are the newest horror from outer space to menace the time explorers of the television serial "Dr. Who." These black monsters are taking over from the now vanquished Daleks.

CREEPY-CRAWLY

Voords are rubber men from Marinus. They are a willowy 6t. tall. Their torso resembles a man's.

But they have the heads of enormous beetles—the creepy-crawly things, not Ringo and Co.—and on top of their noses antennte sprout.

All in all, pretty horrible. Now it remains to be seen whether they will be as popular with children as the Daleks.

They have been created by Terry Nation, scriptwriter who made the Daleks, and hidden behind the thick, rubber suiting first of the new space Dr. Who's latest enemy—the power-seeking Voords monsters is actor Martin Cart.
