That's where the idea for Doctor Mole came from.'I don't have a background in medicine, but when I found my first cancer a few years back I pretty much read everything about it and had a solid understanding of what to look for.
Then it was just a simple case of combining the knowledge I had gained with my software development skills, and Doctor Mole was created.'It's not just their beach culture that makes melanoma the most common cancer among Australians aged 15-44; the hole in the UV-blocking ozone layer above the Tasman Sea makes sun exposure down under especially dangerous.'I could have just written an app that snaps a photo and spits out an answer, but I chose to make it as transparent as possible and try educate the user.
Sherwin told Doctor Who Magazine in 2014 that while working as script editor on the Doctor Who serial The Web of Fear (1968), which also involved an army, he told scriptwriters Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln to include all of the characters that he had originally invented for The Invasion.
Sherwin was uncertain if the army forces featured in The Web of Fear appeared as UNIT, but was "convinced" that, as a teaser for UNIT's more substantial role in The Invasion, The Web of Fear was supposed to have replaced the basic army forces that were seen in the story.
However, the "UNIT" and "UN" abbreviations could be used as long as it was not explained what the letters stood for.
In a 2014 interview with Doctor Who Magazine, script editor Terrance Dicks recalled that he was present at the "birth" of UNIT during the production of the Doctor Who serial The Invasion (1968).
Other apps guide users through self exams, and the German-made 'Handyscope' converts an i Phone into a dermatoscope, which doctors use to look for melanoma.
Speaking in an interview on the 2011 special edition DVD of Spearhead from Space, Sherwin claimed that he had created UNIT because he wanted to give some "considerable support" to the Doctor, "so that [Troughton] didn't have so many damn lines to learn each week".
On top of this, production notes in Doctor Who: The Complete History credit Haisman and Lincoln as the owners of Lethbridge-Stewart, who was the army leader from The Web of Fear, and mention how Bryant and director Douglas Camfield were negotiating the use of the character for The Invasion from Haisman and Lincoln in May 1968, The roots of UNIT in the Doctor Who universe lie in extraterrestrial incursions featured in the Second Doctor serial The Web of Fear (1968) and the Seventh Doctor serial Remembrance of the Daleks (1988).
The contribution of scientific advice in battling extraterrestrial threats is recognised and both Dr Elizabeth Shaw and the exiled Third Doctor joins UNIT just in time to help defeat the Autons in Spearhead from Space (1970).
