The vinyl detective : written in dead wax by Andrew Cartmel( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He is a record collector -- a connoisseur of vinyl, hunting out rare and elusive LPs. His business card describes him as the "Vinyl Detective" and some people take this more literally than others. Like the beautiful, mysterious woman who wants to pay him a large sum of money to find a priceless lost recording -- on behalf of an extremely wealthy (and rather sinister) shadowy client. Given that he's just about to run out of cat biscuits, this gets our hero's full attention. So begins a painful and dangerous odyssey in search of the rarest jazz record of them all
Through time : an unauthorised and unofficial history of Doctor Who by Andrew Cartmel( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Britain's answer to Star Trek, Doctor Who generates the same extraordinary loyalty and passion among its hardcore fans around the world, but it's a very different type of show. Doctor Who succeeds despite its often risibly low budgets and hokey special effects. In his book Through Time, Andrew Cartmel (one of the show's former script editors, during its Sylvester McCoy years) explores Doctor Who's history, selecting classic episodes from each of the show's incarnations, highlighting their strengths (and, yes, weaknesses) with an insider's eye - and an occasionally raised eyebrow."--Jacket

Script doctor : the inside story of Doctor Who, 1986-89 by Andrew Cartmel( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andrew Cartmel was the script editor on Doctor Who from 1986 to 1989. During his time on the show he introduced the seventh Doctor and his companion Ace (Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred). and oversaw forty-two scripts written by eight writers new to the series. With a clear mission to bring proper science fiction back into Doctor Who, he formulated what was later termed "The Cartmel Masterplan", re-introducing the mystery to the character of the Doctor as the series celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary and beyond. Script Doctor is his memoir of this time based on his diaries written sometimes on set and sometimes not even in the diary itself but on the back of scripts. With a foreword from Sylvestr McCoy and an afterword from Sophie Aldred, this book is illustrated with 32 pages of photographs, many never published before. It is a vivid account of life in the Doctor Who production office in the late eighties"-- Back cover
