Tudor Gates was a playwright, screenwriter, author and trade unionist. He owned Twentieth Century from 1963 to 1986, during this time he re-named it 'The White House' which it has been known as until now.
Born in 1930 in London. His career began in stage management, writing scripts in his spare time. After one of these was broadcast on TV he took to writing full time. He wrote, amongst others, for Hammer Horror, 'The Vampire Lovers' (1970), 'Lust for a Vampire' (1971) and 'Twins of Evil' (1971).
He was one of several writers who contributed to 'Barbarella' (1968) and 'Danger: Diabolik' (1968). His plays include 'Who Saw Him Die' and 'Who Killed Agatha Christie', both of which were performed in the West End to great success. TV writing credits include The Avengers, The Sweeney, The Saint and his own series 'Vendetta' which ran on the BBC for three years.
Sadly, most of the episodes appear to have been lost. Tudor Gates died in 2007 aged 77 in Birchington.
