He was the show's script editor from 1968 to 1974, wrote numerous episodes, and adapted more than 50 of the television stories into bestselling novelisations. Published by Target Books, they could reasonably be claimed to have inspired legions of children to take up reading in the 1970s and 80s. Unhappy with alterations to his script The Brain of Morbius (1976), Dicks decreed that it should "go out under some bland pseudonym". It did, credited to "Robin Bland")
