I suspect he was fully aware that his age would mean that he wouldn't be faced with the consequences of his actions. See also Trump: he'll be long dead by the time the planet catches fire, so why should he care?

Doctor Who writer and novelist Terrance Dicks
His influence went beyond Doctor Who - he wrote episodes of several TV series (as widely apart as The Avengers and Crossroads), and was script editor on the BBC Classic Serials during the 1980s, two favourites of mine being an extremely faithful The Hound of the Baskervilles with Tom Baker as Holmes and a great adaptation of The Invisible Man.

His Who novelisations though were surely his most influential. Before VHS and DVD releases, in the UK at least if you wanted to know what an old story was, you had to read the book as they were very rarely repeated. I probably read more books by him than other writer as a kid, and he influenced a generation of British SF writers. His influence is even felt in post 2005 Who - Peter Capaldi's final goodbye speech owes much to Dicks' conception of the Doctor (indeed the character arc of his Doctor can be argued as learning to be Dicks' Doctor).

and Candy Mountain is a wonderful little film, worth hunting for. It usually pops up on YouTube but in recent years it's been screened in 35mm around NYC. Hopefully a Frank retrospective at Film Forum or Anthology is coming soon.

I don’t have much experience with Mr. Frank’s work but I can attest to Candy Mountain being a great film. I found it on VHS in a thrift store and took the 99¢ plunge. And what I got wound up becoming a dear personal favorite; a beautifully made, sweet little treat of a film. I wish it could find its way to disc and reach a wider audience.

Wow. I didn't think he was 75. He was the same age as many of the 1960 rockers.
