Jane Baker, RIP
Joe Dredd
Jane Baker, one half of the husband and wife writing team of Pip (Philip) & Jane Baker, has passed away.

Probably best known for their work on Dr Who, they also wrote the unused (and unfinished?) B7 script, "Death Squad".

Sad news - I'm not a fan of Pip & Jane Baker's writing, but they did help save Doctor Who in a time of crisis.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

"Death Squad" actually got as far as being scheduled for filming before being dropped for budgetary reasons. According to the Marvel B7 Winter special the storyline concerned Blake, Gan and Jenna infiltrating a special training group for ruthless Federation killers. Sounds a bit like an Avengers or The Professionals type storyline to me.
One of those What If? type B7 stories.

Maybe something Big Finish could pick up?

RIP Jane. Sad news.

Was the script ever completed?

Probably not the best time to discuss the merits or otherwise of "Death Squad".....
 
Space Chopper
I know not many Who fans rated them, but I absolutely loved what they did to tie up the Trial Of A Timelord arc, and turned it into one of the best allegorical stories in the Who mythos. RIP, Jane.

I really like Mark Of The Rani. And with Trial Of A Timelord Part 14, they somehow bring the whole sorry mess to a half-decent conclusion (probably the third best episode of the season, behind 13 and 8).

Yes, agreed.

Sorry to hear this sad news. Sad
 
Joe Dredd
Yes, and you've certainly got to respect them for rescuing things as well as they did after Eric Saward departed.

Always sorry to see someone in the industry pass. RIP. -Paula

Their Space 1999 story was better, Matter of balance? -and they did invent the Rani, the Rani cd - reaps the whirlwind is very good
