Terrance Dicks, the one man who probably knows more about the Doctor than the Doctor himself, will be speaking at an event hosted by Airdrie Library. The guru-of-all-things-Who will appear on Wednesday, 14 May at 7pm. As stated by the Daily Record:
“…the real star of the evening is Terrance who’s had a huge influence on Doctor Who fans and the current team of writers on the hit BBC show.”
In addition to Mr. Dicks, the library will offer other festivities as part of it’s “geek night”:
“…gaming workshops, a quiz, and a chance to view the new full moon through the lirary observatory.”
In addition to dozens of his own works, the unbelievably prolific Terrance Dicks served as Doctor Who‘s script editor from 1968-1974 and wrote more Target novelizations of classic episodes than anyone else. Nearing his eighth decade, he continues to be active in the world of Doctor Who.
To see his presentation on May 14th, a person can call the Airdrie Library at 01236 758070 or e-mail at: [email protected].
Personally, I would love to see Mr. Dicks write a script for Peter Capaldi. How would you feel about a television return for the king of Doctor Who‘s written word?
