He is amongst the greats - he is absolutely as important as Dennis Potter, as David Mercer, as Alan Bleasdale, as Alan Bennett, but I think because of a strange snobbery about fantasy or sci-fi it's never quite been that way. Now he's gone, perhaps people will reassess - his major works are absolute of lasting importance. He was a TV giant.
What appealed to me enormously, apart from the sheer thrill of being published, was to have a shot at writing Doctor Who (1963). Not only that but to write Doctor Who (1963) as I thought it should be done, effectively redressing what I felt to have been wrong with the programme in its later years.
It's a tradition that comic monsters are actually deeply sympathetic. People like Basil Fawlty or Rigsby, they are wonderful monsters.
