Ronnie Marsh obituary

My husband, Ronnie Marsh, who has died aged 92, had an excellent nose for what was good or bad in television drama. In 1955 he was recruited as an assistant floor manager in the BBC's light entertainment department. He progressed rapidly through the ranks, becoming a producer, with credits including the series My Pal Bob, What's My Line?, The Charlie Drake Show and Dixon of Dock Green, on which he had a long stint. It was during this formative period that we met in a caravan-cum-office in the car park of the newly completed scenery wing of Television Centre, in west London. We married in 1962.

In 1970, after a short spell as head of staff training, he was appointed head of drama serials. There, he was responsible for many Doctor Who episodes in the Jon Pertwee era, as well as War and Peace, The Lotus Eaters, Don't Forget to Write and The Brothers.
