Andrew Smith is a writer who wrote the Doctor Who story Full Circle.
At the time of initial broadcast, he was the youngest writer to contribute to the TV series. Smith submitted his work to a number of Doctor Who script editors. They replied with "positive criticism". Finally he sent The Planet that Slept. This became Full Circle.
Smith was approached by Big Finish and displayed interest in writing for them. Because he had started the trilogy with Full Circle, they asked him to write a Companion Chronicles story set in E-Space. The Invasion of E-Space was released in October 2010.
He remains a large fan of Doctor Who, and still attends 'Big Finish Day', a UK convention dedicated to the Doctor Who audio drama CDs which he has written for.
Smith is a long service Senior Police Officer
