    Mat Irvine

  • Position

    Designer for Doctor Who, 1972-1984

Now working freelance with his own production company, Mat Irvine’s career began with BBCtv News at Alexandra Palace and progressed to the Visual Effects Department in West London, where he worked on such classic science fiction programmes as Doctor Who and Blake’s 7.

But as Mat will tell you, science fiction is only one area visual effects are required for – factual, light entertainment and comedy programmes were the bread and butter of the department.

Over the years Mat has amassed a diverse collection and, in this treasure trove of a Myth Makers, we get to see what’s in his attic!
