Colin joined the BBC in 1985, working as a clerk typist at BBC Enterprises. During that time he wrote some copy for BBC Video, including video cases for some early Doctor Who video releases.

He was the show’s first Archivist and Researcher beginning in September 1986, eventually becoming a Script Editor and Storyline Editor.
