Written by Alwyn W. Turner, the 356-page hardback book will be available from 25th May 2011, featuring 16 pages of colour photos.
As well as writing the first ever Daleks story for Doctor Who in 1963, the Cardiff-born novelist and screenwriter created the 1970s BBC sci-fi shows Survivors and Blake’s 7. He also contributed to episodes of The Avengers, The Persuaders!, The Champions, Department S and The Saint. Terry Nation died in 1997.
Publishers Aurum Press Ltd state: “This is the first serious, mainstream account of Terry Nation’s life and contribution to British television and will shed light on a fascinating melting pot of ambitious young writers, producers and performers without whom British culture today would look very different.”
