Sonic Screwdriver Crazy
Victor Pemberton – former actor (The Moonbase), story editor (The Tomb of the Cybermen) and writer (Fury from the Deep as well as the original audio adventure Doctor Who and the Pescatons) of Doctor Who has revealed that the BBC have paid him nothing following the success of the Sonic Screwdriver toy.
Well, Pemberton believes that since he invented the device for Second Doctor adventure Fury from the Deep, they should be paying him. Or giving him some sort of credit.
Or does he?
It’s all very confused
"I thought about suing the BBC. But what’s the point? So now while they make lots of cash, I get nothing."
Well make your mind up, Pembo. You’ve either got grounds or you haven’t!
