Daleks

dalek

I’m a bit of a Doctor Who fan, a Whovian, if you will, and I think that the daleks are very steampunk. But then that got me thinking, steampunk was a science-fiction genre created in the 1980s. The Daleks first appeared in th 1960s, about 20 years before steampunk! Does that mean that the person who came up with the idea of daleks, Terry Nation, created steampunk, or did someone else come up with the idea? I also understand that the 9th and 10th Doctor’s TARDIS control rooms also had a bit of a steampunk flare. Such a sci-fi/steampunk show.
