Robert G. Jewell (20 January 1920-10 May 1998[1]) was a Dalek operator in several episodes of the original Doctor Who television series and in the 1960s Dalek movies. Unlike most Dalek operators, however, he did get a chance to guest star in a speaking role outside the Dalek casing. He played Bing Crosby in "The Feast of Steven", thus giving him two roles in The Daleks' Master Plan story.

He also notably took some still photography of the transmission of "The Feast of Steven" which, due to the fact that John Cura was not then employed to take telesnaps of Doctor Who, became the only surviving images of that episode. Technically, however, they weren't telesnaps, as they didn't use Cura's professional process. They were simply the amateur efforts of Jewell pointing a camera at his television screen and clicking, resulting in mostly very low quality, blurry images.
