Lesley Scott is the first woman to receive a writing credit in the history of the British science-fiction program, Doctor Who. She received a full co-writing credit for the 1966 serial, The Ark, despite having contributed nothing to the script. The credit came at the request of writer Paul Erickson's agent, on Erickson's behalf. He wanted, for reasons still obscure, to share the writing credit with his then-wife. However, she did not receive any part of the copyright for the serial.
