In the later days of the old Doctor Who series, the show became fairly popular in America. It was shown on many public television stations in the 1980s. (For a while, I remember KOAP television in Portland, Oregon showed an episode every weekday.)
There was a regular Who convention circuit in America during this period. The events were mostly put on by the Doctor Who Fan Club of America, which also published a newsletter called the Whovian Times. In the double issue 12-13 (at one convention, I remember the DWFCA president joking that they had a quarterly newsletter than only came out three times a year), there was a page-long story about the background of the supposedly most wicked of all renegade Time Lords, Morbius.* This story (from page 11) is bylined as being written by Tom Beck, but I was wondering where he got the information. Was it just made up out of Beck's head, or was there some more official source.
*The Whovian Times also published retrospectives about major enemies, such as the Cybermen, but these were generally just drawn from the stories in which they appeared. Morbius was limited to a single appearance in the show, and most of the story clearly originated elsewhere.
