Loose Cannon's Hall Of Fame:
Donald Tosh began his career in the theatre but later joined Granada TV where, amongst many other projects, he developed the format for a new regular soap drama which was eventually to become Coronation Street.
After six years he moved to the BBC and found himself working as story editor on Compact. After eighteen months he transferred to become story editor on Doctor Who from The Time Meddler to The Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Eve. He is also credited as co-writer of The Massacre. Donald found that he did rather more that just editing some of the scripts, he virtually wrote the first half of The Daleks' Master Plan and completely re-wrote The Massacre.
He left the TV industry in the mid-seventies and went on to work for English Heritage. He became Head Custodian of Sherborne Old Castle, Dorset and St Mawes in Cornwall. He now lives with his family in a remote village in Suffolk and is currently writing a play for the local school.
Donald Tosh was interviewed in DWM issues 191 and 192.
