U.K. (PRWEB) May 9, 2006
Doctor Who Audio producer/director John Ainsworth has just begun writing regular reviews and articles for their popular science fiction news and reviews website http://www.scifind.co.uk.
John Ainsworth has been a producer / director and script editor for Big Finish (http://www.bigfinish.co.uk) productions -- the company responsible for keeping Classic Doctor Who alive and well since 1999. For Big Finish Productions John has produced the 2000 AD series featuring the comic-strip characters of Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog. Of the eighteen titles in the series released to date, John has directed eleven of them along with the voice acting for the Judge Dredd console game, working with versatile voice artist Toby Longworth and the star of Spaced and Shaun of the Dead, Simon Pegg. Also for Big Finish, John produced the highly successful Doctor Who spin-off series, Doctor Who Unbound for which he had to cast six new actors in the role of the famous Time Lord. These included David Warner, Derek Jacobi, Arabella Weir and Geoffrey Bayldon. For the BBCi website, John recently directed their second Ghosts of Albion animated web drama, Embers which starred Anthony Daniels and Emma Samms.
John has also worked with 10th Doctor David Tennant in Doctor Who Unbound, Dalek Empire 3, and the UNIT Doctor Who spin off audio dramas (available from http://www.shopscifi.co.uk).
In 2005 John started releasing Space: 1889 audio dramas through his own audio production company. Noise Monster (http://www.noisemonster.com). Based on the RPG of the same name Space 1889 set in a fantastic alternate universe where Thomas Edison discovered a means to travel in to space.
http://www.scifind.co.uk was started way back in 1999 by Brian Edwards and has bloomed into a thriving science fiction news and reviews site, slightly biased to -- but definitely not exclusive to UK science fiction.
