Terrance Dicks talks to the BBC

Following the death of Terrance Dicks’s last month, fandom has been remembering him in different ways. I never met Terrance, though we did go to the same college (albeit 26 years apart!) I don’t have a favourite TV story of his, and given he was involved in script editing more than 150 episodes, his influence is too broad to single down to a few stories. I did read a lot of Target novels in the ’70s but never kept them.

Terrance Dicks interviewed

What I do have is a link to a BBC interview conducted just before the fortieth anniversary and put live on January 1, 2004. No hints of things to come with the show, plenty to say on the Eighth Doctor and Paul McGann, plus insight into the early development of the Time Lords. The interview is: here.
