Paul Smith is a graphic designer and magazine production editor with more than 20 years’ experience in the business press, now having fun producing self-published books about the BBC television series 'Doctor Who'.
His devotion to the programme goes back to childhood and has frequently sought a creative outlet. In his teens he edited the fiction fanzine 'The Black Pyramid', began designing alternative covers for the Doctor Who DVD range in 2001 (www.velvet-jacket.com), and in 2011 he wrote, illustrated and produced 'The Wonderful Book of Dr Who 1965', a tongue-in-cheek pastiche of BBC Books’ 'Brilliant Book of Doctor Who' (www.wonderfulbook.co.uk/wb1965.html).
This was followed in 2013 by a light-hearted update of the 1973 Radio Times 'Doctor Who 10th Anniversary Special' to celebrate the modern series, and Paul's first commercial book: 'Time & Space Visualiser: The Story and History of Doctor Who as Data Visualisations' (www.wonderfulbook.co.uk/visualiser/), available print-on-demand at Amazon.
He has just published 'The Classic Doctor Who DVD Compendium', the complete guide to the original series' release on DVD, available in print as ebook.
