Cover blurb:
“TONY (READ) said to me, ‘We want to change the format slightly and I thought we might do famous novels ... do you fancy doing THE PRISONER OF ZENDA?’ I thought very quickly and I could see it working!"

DAVID FISHER was born to be a writer. At the age of eight he decided to rewrite TREASURE ISLAND! He first went into advertising, eventually finding himself working for Scottish Television (STV), where he was offered the chance to write for television on THE ONE O’CLOCK GANG.

Moving to London, DAVID started writing for leading drama productions, including DIXON OF DOCK GREEN (1969), THE TROUBLESHOOTERS (1969), CROWN COURT (1974) and HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR (1984).

He wrote 4 stories for DOCTOR WHO — THE STONES OF BLOOD (1978), THE ANDROIDS OF TARA (1978), THE CREATURE FROM THE PIT (1979) and THE LEISURE HIVE (1980). He also wrote what would eventually become CITY OF DEATH (1979) ... but that’s a long story that’s told in this DVD!

In later years he collaborated with ANTHONY READ on historical novels.
