Alan Turing

Today is the great man’s hundredth birthday. I’ve mentioned him before, as well as featuring him in series one of The Door In Time itself, before a similarly heroic guest appearance in the DWM comics last year. A genius whose work helped immensely in the Second World War and whose ideas cast a long shadow on science and science fiction, and a victim of the politics of the time, he deserves such memorials.
