Another figure from original Doctor Who has gone. Barry Letts was producer through most of the Pertwee era, and also directed a number of Pertwee stories. He was responsible for some of my favourite Who stories. (We will pass lightly over certain radio plays, both Who and B7.) He was also active in different roles in the production of Doctor Who both before and after his time as producer, and had a strong influence on the long term shape of the series. Nor was Who the whole of his career. 84's not a bad innings, and he leaves a legacy of work for the BBC that will provide fond memories for years to come.
