1.
Iconic villain from the British TV series Dr Who. Though their appearance is robotic, the Daleks are actually little green blobs mutated from members of the Kaled species by their chief scientist, Davros, and placed in robotic armoured travel machines.

The Daleks were bred to become the superior beings by exterminating all other life forms, so that none could rise to threaten them. The eponymous Dr Who is the only thing has stood between them and universal domination

In real life, the Daleks were created by scriptwriter Terry Nation (who also created Blakes 7), while the Dalek machine props for the TV show were devised by production designer Raymond Cusick

3.
The second most popular villain in the TV show "Dr Who". The Cybermen were humanoids who began to replace parts of themselves with prosthetic devices in a quest to be stronger and longer-lived. In other words, cyborgs. Before they knew it, they had become emotionless robot-like beings who converted other people by force, lobotomising them. In this respect they are precursors of Star Trek's Borg.

In Dr Who, the Cybermen originally came from Mondas (in The Tenth Planet) but later settled on the planet Telos. They have attempted to conquer and enslave Earth in many episodes. In the 2006 season of the show, they were seen evolving on a parallel Earth.

Off-screen, they were created by Script editor Gerry Davis and scientist Kit Pedler.
The Cybermen gripped their captives and led them away. "Resistance is useless," their leader said.

Martial arts' kicking expertise, usually used in reference to performers in Hong Kong martial arts films. A fine use of legs and kicking (as opposed to flips, punches, wire-fu etc) is called bootwork. Usually this occurs when the performer is actually trained in kickboxing or taekwondo rather than wushu or Peking Opera.
"Billy Chow's bootwork in the final showdown of Pedicab Driver is excellent"
