Andrew Cartmel @ Vworp 3

One of the guests at Sunday’s Vworp 3 Doctor Who event is former script editor Andrew Cartmel, the man who reimagined the series in the late 1980s and brought some renewed, if short-lived, kudos to the show.

Former Doctor Who script editor Andrew CartmelAs part of LassFest, the Vworp 3 event takes 7 Doctor Who personalities and asks them to present and talk about 6 things about the show. The “pubcon” event takes place on Sunday, July 18th at 9.30am at Manchester’s Lass O’Gowrie pub.

Andrew Cartmel of course was script editor from 1987-1989, for the duration of the Seventh Doctor era. As well as introducing some new back story to the Doctor, Cartmel also brought a tougher, sharper and less self indulgent attitude to episode pacing, something particularly reflected in Seasons 25 and 26. He also contributed books to the Virgin range of New Adventures.

Andrew will be appearing from 4pm, and chatting to Gareth Kavanagh, about his 6 favourite Doctor Who moments. See Vworp 3 News for the full schedule.
