Frank Halford was a master at the school and remembers Adams as â€œvery tall even then, and popular. He wrote an end-of-term play when Doctor Who had just started on television. He called it â€˜Doctor Which.â€™ â€ Many years later, Adams did write scripts for Doctor Who. He describes Halford as an inspirational teacher who is still a support. â€œHe once gave me ten out of ten for a story, which was the only time he did throughout his long school career. And even now, when I have a dark night of the soul as a writer and think that I canâ€™t do this anymore, the thing that I reach for is not the fact that I have had best-sellers or huge advances. It is the fact that Frank Halford once gave me ten out of ten, and at some fundamental level I must be able to do it.
