John Nathan-Turner dead at 54

Posted:

The BBC is reporting that long time Doctor Who producer John Nathan-Turner has died after a brief (and undisclosed) illness. Nathan-Turner joined the Doctor Who staff during the second Doctor’s regeneration and was responsible for injecting the anti-fanboy element known as “humor” into the show. Doctor Who was one of the first TV shows I consistently watched. 30 minutes of paper mache fun (see this week’s Onion).
