by Alwyn W. Turner Isbn 978 1 845136093
Terry Nation was one of the most prolific and successful writers for Tetelevision that Britain ever produced.
He started as a comedy writer - working for Frankie Howerd, Tony Hancock and many others before getting a big break when he invented the Daleks for Dr Who. Dalek mania swept the UK and he probably ensure the success of Dr Who when otherwise it may have been a short run show.
As well as Doctor Who he wrote Blakes 7, Survivors, and for the Avengers, and many others.
Sometimes labeled a science fiction writer - he was more a writer of adventures. Although his main work was for TV, he also did a few films.
This is a great book that covered both his work and life and the times he lived in.
