Paul Scoones was born in London, England in 1968 but has lived in Auckland, New Zealand since 1973. His interest in the BBC television series Doctor Who led him to establish a New Zealand fan club. He established an award-winning journal (Time Space Visualiser) and edited most of its 76 issues. Paul helped discover a film of a lost Doctor Who episode ‘The Lion’ (episode 1 of ‘The Crusade’) and arranged its return to the BBC in 1999. He now writes professionally about this series, including production information subtitles for the BBC range of Doctor Who DVDs., and can be seen on several Doctor Who DVDs, discussing finding a missing episode and commenting on the comic strips. His first professionally-published book is 'The Comic Strip Companion: 1964-1979'.
