Andrew Cartmel is a novelist, playwright and screenwriter.
His work for BBC television includes a three year stint as the Script Editor on Doctor Who during the Sylvester McCoy era. In collaboration with McCoy and a crack team of writers, he fashioned a new brand of scripts for the show, darker and more funny than their predecessors and, critically, always striving to put the Doctor at the centre of the action.
Since those lively and memorable days, he has been commissioned to write for the TV shows Midsomer Murders, Dark Knight and Torchwood. He has also toured as a stand-up comedian and his stage play Under the Eagle was hailed by Time Out London as ‘bitingly funny’.
Lately he has been devoting himself to writing crime novels, the latest of which is a new series of mystery thrillers featuring the Vinyl Detective, a record-collector turned sleuth.
