Doctor Who News no image

Cybermen Storm Scarborough!

Scarborough Literature Festival saw an attack on the town library by none other than the Cybermen – coincidentally on the same day when veteran Doctor Who scritpwriter and novelist Terrance Dicks was on hand to talk about his career and the move from advertising copy-writer to co-writing an episode of The Avengers and penning scripts for the soap Crossroads.

The Saturday April 24th event saw Dicks in conversation with Peter Guttridge, and with Cybermen on the prowl, terrorising children and other library visitors, Terrance observed of the Doctor:

“He’s always on the side of right, justice and protecting the weak and defenceless. He’s a hero and there aren’t so many of those around these days.”

Which let’s face it is true enough; but not that different to what Terrance said on 1993′s 30 Years in the TARDIS.
