Script writer Terrance Dicks has died at the age of 84 Sad

https://www.irishmirror.ie/showbiz/celebrity-news/breaking-terrance-dicks-dead-doctor-19169735

In collaboration with Malcolm Hulke, he wrote three scripts for The Avengers with Honor Blackman.

The Mauritius Penny (1962)
Intercrime (1963)
Concerto (1964)

Later, Intercrime was redesigned for one episode with Linda Thorson, which got to the screens called Homicide and Old Lace.

He wrote some great scripts. I actually think The Mauritius Penny was the best and most memorable from season 2.

He was also correct about the Mauritius Penny being a rare stamp. This error's very rare and fw are known to still exist.

What a great story. As the husband of a Speech-Language Pathologist, I know how difficult it can be to be a stutterer. He was kind indeed to respond the way he did.
