For 47 years we have been entertained by the great stories, acting, music, writing, special effects and production that goes into making every single episode of Doctor Who. From the very first days with Sydney Newman and Verity Lambert through to Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat, passing John Nathan Turner, Barry Letts, Terrence Dicks and everyone in between, share your favourites here. Writers, composers, producers, anyone you think deserves a nod or special mention, then post away in here.

Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and The Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.

*raises glass to everyone involved*

I think there are too many amazing people to mention them all, so I am going to raise my glass to all the ones who get forgotten.

*raises glass to the model and art department, the special effects department, the runners and drivers, the cleaners, the set designers, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ADs and all the other random people involved on set*

*raises a glass to the caterers because we all know everything would have gone downhill without them and coffee*

Raises separate glasses to each of them Cool

I value each and every person involved, from producer to floor-sweeper, but as a writer probably the writers most of all.  For me, pride of place has to go to the great Robert Holmes - The Krotons, The Space Pirates, Spearhead from Space, Terror of the Autons, Carnival of Monsters, The Time Warrior, The Ark in Space, Pyramids of Mars, Brain of Morbius, The Deadly Assassin, Talons of Weng-Chiang, The Sun Makers, The Ribos Operation, The Power of Kroll, Caves of Androzani, The Two Doctors, The Mysterious Planet, The Ultimate Foe - inventing the Autons and the Sontarans on the way.

Thought I'd let someone else toast the writers Wink

As I want to be a (paid) writer and director I thought I would show appreciation for all the people I want to work with Grin

It has become fashionable over the last few years (in certain corners of fandom) to diminish and play down the role of my particular hero but I would invite you to take time to salute the wonderful, peerless Terrance Dicks, my own personal hero of the Dr Who backroom staff.

It is easy, in these times of iPlayer and DVDs to forget that for the first 25 years of Dr Who, you generally got one chance to see the story and that was it. The only way we could remember the stories and get a feel for them was via the Target novelisations - for that alone, Terry Dicks should be lionised and honoured. He was a writer who could take even the most obtuse of stories, give it a literary polish and turn out a readable and enjoyable book. For those books provided the literary backdrop of my love of the Doctor. Simply put, Terrance Dicks gave me and enormous slice of my childhood.

On a broader theme, it is hard to think of anyone else who has had so much to contribute to the Whoniverse. Writer, Script Editor, Author, Commentator. For me this man was for many years the heart and soul of Dr Who. With his able and equally gifted friend, Barry Letts, they shaped the Pertwee era (so often overlooked) which was home to some all time great episodes (Terror of the Autons - admittedly penned by Bob Holmes - and The Daemons stand up against any episode of any era).

He never had the gothic flair of a Robert Holmes nor the dramatic punch of an Eric Saward but he was a highly skilled story teller and generally, if a story was written by Dicks then you knew it carried a certain guarantee of quality. The plot would hang together, the characters would be solid and believable and the Doctor would be front and centre.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the amazing Terrance Dicks

I couldn't agree more with Chris' comment. Too often undersung but one of the most deserving of praise
