[OBITUARY] Pennant Roberts (1940 - 2010)

Pennant Roberts, who had directed a ton of British television shows in the 1970s-80s, including episodes for both Blake's 7 and the original Doctor Who series, died this past Tuesday after a year-long battle with cancer. He was 69.

For Doctor Who, Roberts directed the following stories: The Face of Evil, The Sun Makers, The Pirate Planet, Warriors of the Deep and Timelash.

Roberts also directed the unfinished Douglas Adams-penned Tom Baker story "Shada" which was eventually completed for audio with Paul McGann in the lead.

On behalf of the Nerdsphere, I would like to send out my deepest sympathies to the family of Pennant Roberts, including his wife Betsan, at this time.
