Cover blurb:
"It's a collaborative exercise and you need the actor to add their magic ... sprinkle the stardust on the role."

PHILIP MARTIN's first career was as an actor, he trained at RADA in the early 1960's. But by the late 60's he was writing, for series like Z-CARS and in 1974 he wrote the highly regarded GANGSTERS for the BBC.

He has written extensively for television and radio, including several PLAY FOR TODAY contributions and episodes of STAR COPS, SHOESTRING and TANDOORI NIGHTS. For DOCTOR WHO he wrote VENGEANCE ON VAROS for the 22nd season and THE TRIAL OF A TIME LORD parts 5 - 8 (TIMEWARP [sic]) for the 23rd. He wrote a story called MISSION TO MAGNUS whch wasn't produced because of the first "cancellation" of DOCTOR WHO.

He was Senior Radio Drama Producer at BBC Pebble Mill in the late 1980's. He has written DOCTOR WHO audio dramas for BIG FINISH and is now completing both a new GANGSTERS novelisation and a book about the making of the series.
