I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up deciding that he was behind the Dyatlov Pass Incident.
Rob probably blames RTD for climate change and the conflict in Gaza! Laughing In truth Rob emits more hot air than anyone else on the planet. Laughing

Nonsense.

RTD callously dismissed John Scott Martin in the same flippant manner he cruelly dismissed Terry Molloy and Paul McGann.

In John Scott Martins case, he was an old man and had been loyal and done 26 years service to the programme.

I dare say he died a heart broken man, his professional confidence shattered for all time because of Fatheads bullying arrogance.


Possibly better than dying of exhaustion inside a Dalek casing?

Seriously, though, it's a bit in poor taste for you to use the death of an old man as an excuse to have another bash as Davies. It's not really the place, is it?
I agree with you. Rob is just using this and has no evidence that he ever asked to appear in the show again.

What do you mean "no evidence"?
Read the news report you pillock!

It is really insulting to say he died "a broken man". He may have been very happy, in the loving care of his family and friends. Besides he was very old and to ask him to wheel around a Dalek in his eighties would be irresponsible.

Shame on Rob

Rubbish.

John Scott Martin clearly told BBC news how he'd dearly love to be the chief Dalek operator on the new series for one last roll-out.

Read the news and the facts before you comment next time.

As Tobias Vaughn remarked to Professor Watkins, "THERE'S a good fellow!"
There is nothing in the article that indicates he approached RTD to have a part or even that he felt he SHOULD be given a part, just that he would like to. For all we know it may have been his frailty that prevented him pushing one of those heavy props about.

Have you any link to this?

I would have though Terrance would have said this purely because RTD and Co have neglected to ask him.

He has no problem writing things for BBV even at extremely short notice, or doing last minute rewrites because of their budgetary constraints.


I think Vector-Victor is probably right. Terrance hasn't worked in television at all since about 1985.


I read in DWM in 1998 in an interview that Terrance didn't want to move to the US towork with Philip Segal, and there was a strong implication there that Terrance was done with TV work. He may have changed his mind since then,but that was the impression I got.

And to be fair,if a scriptwriter hasn't worked in TV for almost a quarter-century, modern TV producers aren't likely to give them a shot today
(unless they're someone highly respected, like Stephen Poliakoff or Alan Bleasdale).
