Phil Ford is best known by Gerry Anderson fans for being the main writer on his 2005 series New Captain Scarlet. But Phil is a prolific writer outside of the world of Anderson including writing for Taggart, The Bill, Coronation Street, Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures and Wizards vs Aliens.

In part one of his interview, Phil talks us through his early Anderson TV memories and how he got into writing for TV.
