Terence Joseph Nation (8 August 1930 – 9 March 1997) was a Welsh television writer and novelist who listeners to our podcast will know as the creator of the Daleks.
As well as his work on Doctor Who for the First, Third and Fourth Doctors, Nation also created cult TV classics Survivors and Blake’s 7, in addition to writing for The Avengers, The Baron, The Champions, Department S, The Persuaders! and The Saint.
Despite this astounding pedigree versus many of his peers, it’s fair to say that Nation isn’t widely regarded as one of the great classic Doctor Who writers.
Rob and Dave take a deep dive into Nation’s career and fan perceptions of him to both re-evaluate the man and also pay tribute to his time on Doctor Who.
