So did this guy get royalties on his designs? If not, it's a shame because that's a big part of what makes Daleks so iconic.
Alas, no. Being a BBC employee at that time, he was paid the standard salary for his efforts. Terry Nation (whom I think was NOT under BBC contract) was shrewd enough to nogeotiate rights separate from the BBC (hence the reason we almost didn't get the Daleks when the series was revived last decade).
Negotiated by Steven Moffat's mother-in-law.

No, seriously.
