It has been announced that Rona Munro has written episode nine for the tenth series of Doctor Who. Munro also wrote for Doctor Who in the Sylvester McCoy era of the program, penning the story Survival. Since there is now one writer from the classic era of the show writing for the program in the modern era, I think that Terrance Dicks should be given the opportunity to write one last script for Doctor Who. Dicks was the script editor for the series from the end of the Patrick Troughton era to the end of Jon Pertwee era. Dicks co-wrote The War Games with Malcom Hulke. A ten episode story that ended Troughton’s tenure as the Doctor and introduced the Time Lords to the audience. Dicks wrote stories for the Tom Baker Doctor, Robot, The Brain of Morbius, The Horror of Fang Rock, and State of Decay. He also wrote the twentieth anniversary special, The Five Doctors. He wrote to stage plays Doctor Who and the Daleks The Seven Keys to Doomsday (1974) and Doctor Who-The Ultimate Adventure (1989). Dicks also wrote an audio play for Big Finish Productions called Comeback (2002). He has written numerous novels and novelizations based on the program. Dicks turns 82 on April 14, but from what I understand he has a fertile mind. I’m sure that he’s capable of writing one more Doctor Who script. It would fitting to add such a story to the legacy of a true legend of that great program.
