Colt 2037 - The First Dalek?

Sheep and hens are everywhere that they ought not to be, and there seems no way of escaping them. Dogs are bad enough and ought to be exterminated. They are the silliest beasts which one finds uncontrolled on the roadways. Children, of course, one defers to, but they are outrageously careless and very foolish at times, and in short are the greatest responsibility for the driver in the small towns of England and France.
- Francis Miltoun, The Automobilist Abroad (1907)

Dogs are inferior beings and ought to be exterminated! They are superior in only one respect. They are better at dying!

I rather like the idea of the first Dalek being called Francis.
