Barry Newbery, Doctor Who Designer, Has Passed Away

Barry Newbery, who worked on Doctor Who as early as the first episode in 1963, worked on designs for various stories including "Marco Polo", "The Aztecs", "The Crusade", "The Time Meddler", "The Daleks' Master Plan" and "The Gunfighters".  He also worked on a few stories up to 1984 with his final work being done on "The Awakening."

Newbery worked with Raymond Cusick on various set designs in the early years and concentrated most of his work on the historicals.  With the town of Tombstone and the city of Jaffa has two of his highlights, Newbery, with a limited budget, managed to complete believable settings for Doctor Who.

He passed away on February 25, 2015. He was 88.  Our thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.
