Icon made by Freepik from


(?   -    ) UK journalist and screenwriter who novelized his own Doctor Who episode, "The Happiness Patrol" (1988) as Doctor Who: The Happiness Patrol (1990). This is one of several Doctor Who stories from this time that can be read as a parable of the authoritarian streak in Thatcherism. It was perhaps unfortunate that the most memorable aspect of the televised series was a villain bearing a close resemblance to Bertie Bassett, a character used to advertise confectionery in the UK. Curry has since focused his energies elsewhere. [JC/GS]
