Paul Magrs is an eccentric writer who first emerged during the Wilderness Years, then went on to create several Ostentatiously Obscure spinoff properties. He's like Lawrence Miles, only somewhat pleasant.
His works, which are known for high levels of camp and trippy imagery, include:
- The Scarlet Empress
- The Blue Angel
- Mad Dogs and Englishmen (the cover of which has been known to cause epilepsy in rare cases)
- Sick Building (Originally called "Wicked Bungalow", until they made him change the title on the grounds it was too weird)
- Various Big Finish audios
- The Nest Cottage series
- Iris Wildthyme
- Vince Cosmos, Glam Rock Detective
Magrs is also the guy who finally managed to bring Tom Baker back to the role (his first performance since 1981 was in AudioGo's Hornet's Nest), whereupon he teamed him up with Mike Yates and gave him a housekeeper. His style can best be summed up as "No, honestly, this isn't as stupid as it sounds..."
Apparently he was RTD's favorite EU writer, which explains a lot.
