a real world point of view
Lennie Mayne was born in Australia on 8 November 1927, and directed several Doctor Who stories. He was married to Frances Pidgeon. Mayne provided the whistling soundtrack for Sarah Jane Smith's last scene in The Hand of Fear because Elisabeth Sladen could not whistle. (DOC: Changing Time)
Mayne died tragically in a boating accident on 20 May 1977, when a dinghy he was using on the English Channel with two other yachtsmen — one of whom was Ian McCulloch — was capsized by a freak wave, and the search-and-rescue team were unable to find him.
