Synopsis

Although Lambert was not Sydney Newman's first choice to produce the series — Don Taylor and Shaun Sutton had both declined the position — the Canadian was very keen to ensure that Lambert take the job after his experience of working with her at ABC. "I think the best thing I ever did on that was to find Verity Lambert," he told Doctor Who Magazine in 1993. "I remembered Verity as being bright and, to use the phrase, full of pi** and vinegar! She was gutsy and she used to fight and argue with me, even though she was not at a very high level as a production assistant." This interview outlines her struggle to bring a TV series to life.
