      Verity Lambert, the first producer of Doctor Who in the period of
      1963 to 1965, passed away on Thursday at the age of 71. The news
      spread across the world on 23 November, the 44th anniversary of
      Doctor Who's premiere. The Times has an obituary:
      . The BBC covers the news at
      html .
