This documentary had so much potential. All it had to do was tell us something interesting about Terry Nation and it pretty much failed on all counts. I really learnt nothing about the man. This piece was clearly well researched but weaving this into an entertaining story appeared to bewilder the production team that made it. Why were they so obsessed with pretty much just covering Terry's Doctor Who career although it did move off this some questions had to be answered like: Where did the bloke grow up? What were his parents doing? How was his life? these seem like obvious documentary questions that for some reason were just plain ignored. Really bad and actually I found myself sleeping toward the end.
