RIP Dudley Simpson

I don't often write an obit for a musician, but this one deserves a mention.

He wrote incidental music for no less than 290 episodes of Doctor Who in the 1960s and 1970s. (He also did a cameo in The Talons of Weng-Chiang.

He also wrote the theme music to Blake's 7 and The Tomorrow People.

IMDB.com also credits him for music in multiple Shakespeare movies.

We often forget people who aren't actors, directors and (sometimes) writers, so I figured I'd stop a moment to honor a composer who made a great contribution to my favorite show.
