Quatermass Creator Dies, Aged 84

Thu Nov 02, 2006 4:03 am



Pioneering screenwriter Nigel Kneale, best known for the Quatermass TV serials and films that began in the 1950s, has died at the age of 84.
Kneale's The Quatermass Experiment in 1953 was the UK's first sci-fi serial and created its first TV hero, the alien-battling Bernard Quatermass.
The writer, from the Isle of Man, has been cited as an influence by Stephen King and film-maker John Carpenter.
