FOOTNOTES
Henry Lincoln (born Henry Soskin) is an English author, famed for his co-authorship of the book 'The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail'.
'The Dominators' was broadcast as five episodes during August - September 1968. Henry Lincoln and Mervyn Haisman requested their writing credit for this series of episodes to be removed, due to their dissatisfaction with the eventual production, the reduction in the number of episodes (from five to six), the ending being written without consultation and the licensing agreement for the 'Quarks' characters.
The episode is therefore credited as 'Norman Ashby'.'The Dominators' was the final series of episodes written for Doctor Who by the pair.

Estimate £500 - 700
Unsold (again)
