R.I.P. Terrance Dicks (1935-2019)

Doctor Who TV is saddened to report on the death of Terrance Dicks.

The British writer, best known for his Doctor Who work, died at the age of 84.

Dicks worked as script editor on more than 150 episodes. He wrote numerous episodes for the show, as well as a host of Target Books novelisations.

Dicks joined Doctor Who towards the end of Patrick Troughton’s tenure in 1968, and contributed episodes until 1983’s “The Five Doctors”.

His final short story, “Save Yourself”, will be published next month in BBC Books’ Doctor Who: The Target Storybook.

Rest in peace.
