Verity Lambert, 1935-2007

Terrible, terrible, news from England today.

Verity Lambert has died.

For those who do not know, Verity Lambert was the first female producer at the BBC, and the first producer of the highly popular Doctor Who tv series in 1963. She was also the youngest person to ever take charge of a BBC series at the time. Verity Lambert leaves a television legacy of series that are too numerous to mention here, but was one of the most influential women in British television history.

Verity Lambert was 71 years old at the time of her death. She will be sorely missed.

Rest In Peace, Verity. You've earned it.
