Victor Pemberton
Birth: Oct. 10, 1931
Death: Aug. 13, 2017

British Writer, Television Producer. His scriptwriting work included BBC radio plays, and television scripts for the BBC and ITV, including Doctor Who, The Slide and The Adventures of Black Beauty. His television production work included the British version of Fraggle Rock (second series onwards), and several independent documentaries including the 1989 International Emmy Award-winning Gwen: A Juliet Remembered, about stage actress Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies. In his earlier years, Pemberton had several small screen acting roles. In addition to novelisations, he wrote many nostalgic novels set in London, prompted by the success of his autobiographical radio drama series Our Family. Pemberton grew up in Islington, London, and lived for many years in Essex. In later life he lived in Spain, where he continued to write novels. He first worked on the program in 1967 as Assistant Script Editor and was promoted to the role of Script Editor during the production of the story "The Tomb of the Cybermen". Pemberton wrote the 1968 Patrick Troughton story Fury from the Deep (which he subsequently novelised for Target Books). The story, now missing from the BBC archives, was based on an earlier stand-alone radio serial he had written called The Slide, starring future Master actor Roger Delgado. It introduced the Doctor's trademark sonic screwdriver. In 1976, Pemberton wrote the audio drama Doctor Who and the Pescatons for an experiment in Doctor Who on vinyl record and an early spin-off from the program. The production was aimed at children and is heavily based on ideas Pemberton had used for Fury from the Deep. He later novelised The Pescatons, which was the final Doctor Who book published with the Target logo on the spine. He had previously appeared as an actor in the series, in a non-speaking role as a scientist in the 1967 story The Moonbase. (bio courtesy of: Wikipedia)
