1977 was a year in which a number of events important to the production of Doctor Who and its spin-offs occurred.
- Terrance Dicks wrote the script for what would become State of Decay, then known as The Wasting, and later referred to by the titles The Witch Lords and The Vampire Mutations. It wasn't produced until 1980 as the BBC were at the time planning a major drama about Dracula, and feared that a Doctor Who story running concurrently about vampires would either steal their thunder, be considered a send-up of their adaptation of Bram Stoker's story, or both.
