Christopher H. Bidmead trained as an actor at RADA and subsequently played leading roles on the West End stage and television. For several years he was a regular voice on radio as a member of the BBC Drama Repertory Company. He began screenwriting while working with the RSC, and at the same time a interest in science drew him towards technical journalism. His articles in the New Statesman prompted BBC producer Robert Banks Stewart to recommend him for the post of script editor on Doctor Who at the beginning of the 1980s. Following his departure from the role Bidmead contributed scripts for three Doctor Who TV serials: Logopolis, Castrovalva and Frontios. For the past quarter century he has continued to work as an IT journalist, writing for a range of publications including Wired, the Daily Telegraph and PC Plus.
