Terrance Dicks @ Vworp 3

Among the superb guest list at this weekend’s PubCon Vworp 3 at the Lass O’Gowrie in Manchester is former Doctor Who script writer, series script editor and novelist Terrance Dicks!

Doctor Who scripteditor Terrance DicksTerrance will be giving us an insight into his 6 favourite Doctor Who things, and I can tell you now that he has chosen a great selection of clips.

Dicks first worked on Doctor Who in 1968 as assistant script editor, moving on to the full role one year later and collaborating with Malcolm Hulke on The War Games.

Of course, Terrance Dicks is best known for his hugely successful working relationship with Doctor Who producer Barry Letts from 1970-1974, not to mention the vast number of Target adaptations of TV serials that were popular throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Terrance is expected to appear from 2pm, where he will present clip and chat with John Cooper. See Vworp 3 News for the full schedule.

Don’t forget – The Lass O’Gowrie is a pub, so food and drink will be available for purchase!
