Doctor Who and the Communist: the writing career and politics of Malcolm Hulke

Event location: WCML

Date: 11th Nov 2015

Event time: 14:00 to 15:00

Malcolm Hulke (1924-1979)  was a successful writer for radio, television and the cinema from the 1950s to the late 1970s.  His work included episodes for  Armchair Theatre and The Avengers and 54 episodes for Doctor Who, broadcast between 1967 and 1974, for which he is best remembered. Malcolm was also socialist, belonging for a time to the Communist Party of Great Britain, and was very involved with Unity Theatre.

The talk will be given by Michael Herbert who has been watching Doctor Who since 1963, aged 8, and is the author of a pamphlet about Malcolm Hulke, Doctor Who and the Communist,  published earlier this year by Five Leaves Press.

This talk is the final one in our autumn Invisible Histories series. Admission free; light refreshments after.
