Andrew Cartmel is a novelist, playwright and screenwriter. His work for BBC television includes a legendary three year stint as the Script Editor on DOCTOR WHO. He has also been commissioned to write scripts for MIDSOMER MURDERS, DARK KNIGHT and TORCHWOOD. He has toured as a stand-up comedian and his stage play UNDER THE EAGLE was hailed by Time Out London as ‘bitingly funny’. Andrew Cartmel has had a number of novels published including a sequence of spy thrillers — OPERATION HEROD, EVENT DRIVEN and CLASS WAR — featuring his creation Rupert Hood. His latest novel, due out shortly, is WRITTEN IN DEAD WAX, first in a new series of noir thrillers featuring a seam of subversive humour, about the Vinyl Detective -- a record collector turned sleuth. The high octane (and heavy vinyl) sequels are THE RUN OUT GROOVE and VICTORY DISC.
