For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
A Big Finish creative powerhouse is hanging up his headphones to take on a new challenge in the world of television.
The multi-talented Scott Handcock is a writer, producer, script editor, director and actor, much loved by regular Big Finish listeners. He has been involved in numerous audio dramas at the company since 2006, when he debuted with a Dark Shadows audio script, and is the creator of The Confessions of Dorian Gray series starring Alexander Vlahos.
As well as his audio credits, Scott has previously worked on Doctor Who Confidential and The Sarah Jane Adventures and was the production secretary for Doctor Who in 2011.
Now, Scott has joined Bad Wolf - the TV production company making the next series of Doctor Who - to take on a new role as script editor. Everyone at Big Finish hopes you will join us in wishing him well.
To mark the occasion, we are offering a selection of Scott’s audio work at a discounted price, including the Russell T Davies Doctor Who adventure, Mind of the Hodiac, the Torchwood One series and Dracula starring Mark Gatiss.
Big Finish Chairman and Executive Producer Jason Haigh-Ellery said: “What Scott has achieved at Big Finish and in his TV career so far has been astonishing - he has always found new ways of telling stories and helped to craft some of our best scripts.
“I am so excited that he has been given the position of Script Editor on Doctor Who working with the wonderful Russell T Davies. I can’t wait to see what the two of them come up with!”
Creative Director and Executive Producer Nicholas Briggs added: “It’s tremendous news that Scott is the script editor on the new Doctor Who TV series. He’s been so prolific and creative with Big Finish over many years. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him, when he’s been both producing and script editing, and I’ve always been impressed by his problem-solving capabilities, professionalism and sheer enthusiasm for his work.
“Bad Wolf is lucky to have him, and we will miss him. Luckily, we’re still in touch as friends, so I don’t feel too bereft!”
