I've noticed that, when people die, there's either a dedicated thread to them, or else we post it in the 'Headlines that Left You Speechless' thread. I've decided that we need a dedicated thread. So, I'll start with a death that may not affect many, but will certainly affect Whovians. I've posted this elsewhere, but I might as well start with this one.http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/doctorwho/articles/Christopher-Barry
Christopher Barry may not be a name most of you have heard of, but you may have seen his work. He co-directed the first Dalek story of Doctor Who
, the debuts of two Doctors (the sadly missing The Power of the Daleks
for Patrick Troughton, and Robot
for Tom Baker), as well as classics like The Daemons
and The Brain of Morbius
Now, I know that there's another very recent celebrity death, so I'll let someone else post it...
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
