THE birthplace of Terry Nation, the creator of Doctor Who's arch nemeses the Daleks, received a commemorative blue plaque yesterday.

The Llandaff Society unveiled the blue plaque at Mr Nation's former home in Fairwater Grove West, Cardiff.

Neighbours have told how they remembered seeing Mr Nation as a boy sitting on the back steps of his house scribbling down stories in his notebook.

Mr Nation died in 1997.

The unveiling of the plaque was carried out by Tim Hancock, the nephew of late actor and comedian Tony Hancock who had worked closely with the Dalek creator.

Pupils from Mr Nation's former schools, Radnor Primary and Kings Monkton School, also attended the unveiling.

Yesterday's event coincided with the 50th anniversary celebrations of the first transmission of Doctor Who.

Other events planned in the city include a Doctor Who treasure hunt and a Doctor Who walking tour around Mermaid Quay in Cardiff Bay over the weekend, while BBC Radio Wales is holding Doctor Who Day today.
