Hinchcliffe, Philip

Tagged: Author

(1944-    ) UK television producer, most notably for Doctor Who series, who has also written some Ties for the sequence, including Doctor Who and the Seeds of Doom (1977), Doctor Who and the Masque of Mandragora (1977) and Doctor Who and the Keys of Marinus (1980). In his pomp as a producer, during the years Tom Baker (see Doctor Who) was transforming the role, the darkness of the series (largely attributable to script editor Robert Holmes) aroused the ire of the notorious British censorship campaigner, Mary Whitehouse (1918-2004); Hinchcliffe exhibited no ascertainable remorse.
