Pringle, Eric

Tagged: Author

(1935-2017) UK screenwriter and author connected in his earlier career with the Doctor Who universe, for which he wrote a Tie, Doctor Who – The Awakening (1985). Later he chiefly concentrated on Radio work, though his Big George sequence for younger children, beginning with Big George (2001), amusingly retells the legend of Saint George and the Dragon in sf terms, with a lovable Alien serving as dragon.
