Full Circle Writer Returns!

A marshman from the Doctor Who classic FulL Circle, 1980After being seemingly lost to the world of Doctor Who after the broadcast of Full Circle in 1980, Andrew Smith is apparently making a return to the Whoniverse, thanks to a commission to write for the Companion Chronicles range from Big Finish.

Set for release in October, Invasion of E-Space will be performed by Lalla Ward as the second incarnation of Time Lady Romana, and take place in the era of the Fourth Doctor, Romana, Adric and K9. Fans of classic Doctor Who will recall that the character remained in E-Space at the end of Warrior’s Gate – and that Smith’s sole TV episode Full Circle also took place in the exo universe.

“When they approached me to ask if I would be interested, I let it slip out of my mind until David got back in touch with me to ask if I would do a Companion Chronicle.

“It’s been a lot of fun, and it’s brought a lot of memories flooding back, about the effort involved in writing.”

Smith has in fact not being hiding since writing Full Circle – rather than writing, he instead embarked on a career in the Metropolitan Police force!

“It was nice to come back to professional writing again – it was fun because I was going to have a week off and do the bulk of the work then, but I remembered just how hard it was writing something like that -and it reminded me I’m not a morning person!”

Despite some poor visual effects work, Full Circle was a fascinating story, and we expect Invasion of E-Space to be similarly inventive!
