Doctor Who Postscript: RIP 'John Smith's' mother - Verity Lambert

Very sad to read the news that Verity Lambert died last night, on the eve of the 44th anniversary of Doctor Who.

As the first producer of Doctor Who, she was most recently remembered in the Doctor Who script for Human Nature/Family of Blood where John Smith identified his parents as 'Verity' and 'Sidney' (Newman).

POSTSCRIPT: There is a very beautiful tribute piece to Verity over at Behind the Sofa. Begun whilst she was still alive and incomplete though it remains, it is nevertheless a very good response to the important contribution she made.
