Source: The Guardian

The former Doctor Who writer and script editor Terrance Dicks has died aged 84.

Dicks had a long association with the BBC’s longest-running sci-fi show, writing episodes from the late 1960s until the early 1980s. He also served as its script editor from 1968 to 1974 and wrote numerous Doctor Who novels.

The programme’s official fan site confirmed the news in a post on Twitter. “Just received comms that legendary #DoctorWho writer, Terrance Dicks has died,” it read.

“Genuinely gutted. An incredibly talented man who we had the pleasure of interviewing over the years. He also regularly took part in Q&As on the DWO Forums. He will be sorely missed!”

For the past week I've been binge watching the show on Pluto. He'll be sorely missed.

7. You're getting decent reception on Pluto? That's impressive.
