R.I.P. Christopher Barry (1925-2014)

Sad news from the world of Doctor Who.

British director Christopher Barry has died at the age of 88.

Doctor Who Director Christopher Barry Dies at 88

Christopher Barry is one of my favourite directors of Doctor Who, having directed the marvellous "The Romans", "The Power of the Daleks", and "The Daemons", among others. His television credits include all sorts of things notably among them Paul Temple (1970-71), The Onedin Line (1977), and All Creatures Great and Small (1978-80), among other things.

He was one of only three people to direct Doctor Who serials featuring William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker, the other two directors being Douglas Camfield and Lennie Mayne.

Rest In Peace, Christopher. Thanks for the great work you've done in the tv industry. It will be remembered.
