Kazimierz Piotr Jerzy Brachacki

DWM #506Above is a picture of Kazimierz Piotr Jerzy Brachacki. In 1952, he applied for British citizenship, and became known as Peter. Anyone reading this will know, he designed the TARDIS interior – a brilliant, ageless piece of work.

In DWM #506 (on sale now) I attempt to tell his story – something that was only possible with the help of his widow, Gaby, and oldest son, Alexis.

It was summer 2015 when I first got in touch with them, and in the year-and-a-half since, we’ve spoken on several occasions, and they’ve both been very generous with their time. Furthermore, Alexis even shared with me unpublished images of Peter’s work and – following a trip to visit his paternal relatives in Poland – unearthed pictures of his father during the 1940s and ’50s. You can see many of them in the new DWM, but I’d thought I’d share a few more here.
