Sir Terry remembered: Dickens' fire, Tolkien's imagination, and the wit of Wodehouse

Mad Scientist

Books never written

I discovered Terry back in the 80s and went on to play several of his characters on stage. He was generous to let a bunch of amateurs loose on his masterpiece but was incredibly supportive through the years.

I remember in his first biographical notes he said he would write about his experiences at the nuclear power stations if he thought anyone would believe him. I would have wondered what he left out. I shall be reminiscing later with a the Archchancellor (amongst many DW roles).

I will miss his razor wit and would loved to have seen him deconstruct our current times.
