About Jim Sangster

I’m a writer, artist and digital producer – and a life-long fan of Doctor Who. I was a ‘talking head’ contributor for documentaries in the Doctor Who DVD range from 2004-2010, many of which have now been released on Bluray. I first contributed an article to Doctor Who Magazine in 1999 and have been the mag’s main toy reviewer for over a decade. I wrote a couple of short stories for Big Finish’s anthologies, sculpted monsters for the cover art (the first being the imp for The Spectre of Lanyon Moor) and played a few bit parts in their audiodramas, including Zagreus in Omega (2003) and an unnamed alien in (Terror Firma).

Away from Doctor Who, I’ve written / co-written books about Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese, as well as the TV shows Friends, 24 and the official guide to Spooks. I co-wrote TV Heaven (aka The Collins Television Guide) and was the lead contributor for 1001 TV Shows to Watch before You Die.

  1. I’m writing to let you know I have contributed an article about Malcolm Hulke’s writing for Doctor Who in the 1970s to this new collection on 1970s television series, Survival TV, edited by Rodney Marshall.

    I am working on a full length biography of Mac including his work on Pathfinders in Space, The Avengers , Armchair Theatre, The Protectors, Danger Man and other series (not forgetting Crossroads and Woobinda, Animal Doctor, of course.)
