David Agnew was a pseudonym employed by Graham Williams and others.

Background Edit

The BBC in the late 1970s took a dim view of producers and script editors commissioning themselves, so when the occasion did arise, then-Doctor Who producer Williams disguised his actual authorship. 2|entertain did a tongue-in-cheek feature on The Invasion of Time DVD called "The Elusive David Agnew". The featurette included Terrance Dicks stating that Agnew was a good friend of Robin Bland (the pseudonym Dicks used on The Brain of Morbius). As a final joke, the director credit on the featurette is given to Alan Smithee, the infamous pseudonym used for decades by Hollywood film and TV directors.

Contrary to the mystery perpetuated in the comedy featurette The Elusive David Agnew, the identity of "Agnew" to Doctor Who is known.

Other information Edit
