    Today, the 23rd of November, the anniversary of the Doctor Who series brings sad news of the person that made it a reality 44 years ago in 1963. As reported on Outpost Gallifrey, the series original producer Verity Lambert has passed away at the age of 71.

    Verity pioneered the series as its first producer hired by series creator Sydney Newman himself. Notable at the BBC for not only being the youngest producer at the age of 27, but also the only female producer at the time. She produced the series from 1963 through 1965. Also listed among her long list of credits are Rumpole of the Bailey (1978-1980), Minder (1979), Quatermass (1979), along with many others.

    Verity did not shy away from speaking about her early work on Doctor Who. You can find her interviews, statements, and commentaries in various documentaries, printed material, DVDs, etc. over the years.

    Thank you Verity for bringing the series to life, you will be missed, but never forgotten.

    she was a force in television that paved the way for many females. she will be remembered for much more than giving us the greatest show on television.

    our thoughts are with you VL

    (So glad she got to hear herself name checked in Human Nature)

    You are already missed.

    Indeed a pioneer in the television industry, and one whose influence we will see for generations to come.
