Below is the Reeltime Pictures Myth Makers press release:
Andrew Skilleterâ€™s involvement with Doctor Who has spanned some 26 years.
Heâ€™s probably best known for the many cover illustrations he has painted for Target and Virgin books and the BBC video covers but there is a much larger canon of work including books, prints and calendars.
In this Myth Makers, we travel to his home in Dorset to discuss how Andrew became an artist and how his association with Doctor Who came about.
We also find out about the many other areas his talent explores and the inspiration behind his work.
Lavishly illustrated with examples of his work, this is a Myth Makers not to be missed.
