Doctor Who's longest serving producer, John Nathan Turner, is to be honoured by the City of Brighton and Hove, with a new bus named after the former resident.
As we reported earlier this week, the final decision to honour the producer was taken by public vote, with Nathan Turner's name being one of 9 selected from a shortlist of 31. An additional 15 names were selected from over one hundred submissions.
John Nathan Turner lived in the city, which is on the south coast of England, for many years, including the period in which he was overseeing Doctor Who. His name will now go on one of the 24 new Coaster buses to be deployed on route 12, that travels east along the Sussex heritage coast towards Eastbourne. The new buses come with a host of new features including low emission ‘Euro 6’ engines, free Wi-Fi, an upper deck table with USB charge points, softer seating, ‘talking buses’ with next stop information and real time tracking of bus locations.
Others being honoured include author Rudyard Kipling, actress Dame Anna Neagle and former voice of the speaking clock Brian Cobby
