Doctor Who Writer Son Suing the BBC
Anthony Coburn died in 1977 but his son is now coming out with this suite, obviously to capitalize on increased awareness of the show during the 50th Anniversary.
Stefan says this -
It is by no means my wish to deprive legions of Doctor Who fans (of whom I was never one) of any aspect of their favourite children's programme. The only ends I wish to accomplish, by whatever lawful means present themselves, involve bringing about the public recognition that should by rights always have been his due, of my father James Anthony Coburn's seminal contribution to Doctor Who, and proper lawful recompense to his surviving estate.
The BBC has made no official comment.
