Lovett Bickford (8 April 1942-29 July 2018) directed the Doctor Who television story The Leisure Hive. He had earlier been the assistant floor manager for The War Machines (with Margot Hayhoe) and The Moonbase. He also directed episodes of Z-Cars, Angels and Emmerdale.
He was reportedly never allowed to work on Doctor Who after The Leisure Hive because he had gone severely over budget. (DWM 191)
