Terrance Dicks is to be feature in a special event as part of the Belfast Film Festival. The writer will be interviewed about his career in television and his prolific output as a writer, with his association with Doctor Who forming a central part of the discussion.

Terrance Dicks is a writer and script editor, most famous for his long association with Doctor Who.

His first script for the much loved series was back in 1969 (as part of the final 'Second Doctor' story The War Games). He was script editor for the series for the Jon Pertwee era and also contributed scripts and stories for Tom Baker's Doctor, and later including the 20th anniversary show The Five Doctors.

Major characters and concepts created in a Dicks script or developed by him as a script editor include the Time Lords as well as the Master.

Dicks was also the most prolific writer of the Target Books novelisations of the series, and at one point was the editor of the range.

The event takes place in the Belfast Waterstones on Friday 18th April at 7:00pm. Tickets can be purchased via the Festival website.


The author will also be introducing the event's showing of The Mind of Evil on the 18th April, though this is sold out!
