Writer for Doctor Who, 1980
In 1980, a Doctor Who story was written by an aspiring young writer … in itself nothing unusual … but when that writer was also a seventeen year old avid Doctor Who fan … well that was unusual.
This Myth Makers features Andrew Smith, writer of the highly acclaimed eighteenth season, Tom Baker story, Full Circle.
We caught up with Andrew at the Doctor Who Appreciation Society (www.dwasonline.co.uk) event Back To The 80s, held at the Pendulum Hotel, Manchester in October 2015.
In a fascinating interview, Andrew gives us his view of the making of Full Circle and how his writing career developed … including new, original dramas for Big Finish.
