Before becoming a film script writer Terry was a prolific writer of UK TV scripts in both action and science fiction genre. His scripts are noted for their depth, i.e. they usually have many sub-plots as well as the main plot. As a writer on the Dr Who TV series he created the DALEKs, the mechanical monsters who plan universal domination. On Earth they would constantly be planning to 'exterminate' all humans. Terry also created Blake's Seven, another popular UK science fiction TV series.
