Cover blurb:
“I wanted a darker, more powerful, more mysterious Doctor."

ANDREW CARTMEL studied at the University of London and Canterbury before being headhunted for the job as Script Editor on DOCTOR WHO. He worked on all three SYLVESTER McCOY seasons and, just when the programme was showing signs of improvement, it was cancelled!

In this MYTH MAKERS, NICHOLAS BRIGGS goes behind the scenes with ANDREW to find out where he and JNT were hoping to take DOCTOR WHO and how the cancellation came about.

Since then, the Science Fiction theme in ANDREW CARTMEL’s career has continued with comic strips for 2000AD and DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE plus a trilogy in Virgin’s NEW ADVENTURES novels. He edited STARBURST magazine from 1999 to 2000. Most recently he was Script Editor and lead writer on the sword & sorcery series DARK KNIGHT.

He’s also written the novel THE WISE, served as Senior Script Editor on CASUALTY and written a number of screenplays, including an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH. Most recently he’s written a stage thriller.

A lot to cram into this latest MYTH MAKERS... but we’ll manage somehow!
