Two of the stories that Jamie has recently directed for Big Finish.

The January 2016 release of the Fifth Doctor adventure The Waters of Amsterdam introduced the latest recruit to the Big Finish Doctor Who audio dramas. Since then, Jamie Anderson has directed seven more of the year’s monthly releases, including The Peterloo Massacre and the acclaimed Two Masters trilogy.

Yet to fans of such television classics as Stingray, Thunderbirds, UFO and Space:1999, Jamie is also known as the head of Anderson Entertainment, the production company established by his late father, legendary producer Gerry Anderson.

Despite growing up surrounded by the trappings of Marineville, Tracy Island and Moonbase Alpha, Jamie developed an interest in Doctor Who at an early age. He even appeared alongside his father in 30 Years in the TARDIS, the 30th anniversary BBC documentary broadcast in November 1993.
