Saturday Doctor Who
Series producer Verity Lambert shares a cigarette with a Strange Alien Life Form. She was my age when she got her first producing gig, that of the newly-minted TV series 'Doctor Who' in 1963. Since it was her first job she was overseen by producer Mervyn Pinfield, but soon took over the reins full-time before moving on to a distinguished career at the BBC, helming many popular shows and movies and. getting knighted. She died in 2007.
