Face of Evil DVD - Winner

Well done to Trevor Fuller who wins the DVD.

The answer to the question, 'Which well known SF series did the writer of 'The Face of Evil', Chris Boucher, become script editor on in 1977?' was of course 'Blake's 7'. In fact Chris Boucher was recommended to Blake's 7 producer David Maloney by Robert Holmes, based on the work Holmes had done with him on Doctor Who.
