(1930-1993) UK teacher and occasional television scriptwriter responsible (among other work) for "Galaxy Four", a four-part Doctor Who television story in 1965 which does not take place in Galaxy Four. The original script was published as Doctor Who: The Scripts: Galaxy Four (1994), and novelized by Emms as Doctor Who: Galaxy Four (1985); the plot, featuring downed Spaceships and at least two Alien species, is as close to conventional Space Opera as Doctor Who normally gets.
