British Writer Wally K. Daly Passes Away

English television and radio writer and former chairman of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain, Wally K. Daly has died, aged 79.


Daly also wrote a story for Doctor Who called The Ultimate Evil but due to its 18 month hiatus the story was cancelled. The Ultimate Evil Part One was to be transmitted on 4 October 1985. Part Two was to have been broadcast on 25 October 1985.

The script was published in the popular range of Doctor Who books in 1989, then later adapted into a Big Finish audio story as a part of their Lost Stories audio range in 2019.



Daly was a prolific author of radio plays, with his science fiction work including a trilogy Before the Screaming Begins, The Screaming Starts, and With a Whimper to the Grave, which featured amongst its cast Patrick Troughton, James Laurenson, Donald Hewlett, Maureen O’Brien and Hannah Gordon.


As well as some minor acting roles including Z-Cars, his writing credits include Juliet Bravo, Casualty and Byker Grove.
