From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Peter Ling is a writer for television and a novelist.

He started writing while in the army during World War II, and honed his craft while spending two years recovering from tuberculosis. Success on radio led to him becoming a script editor and Head of Children's Series for Associated-Rediffusion. Ling later co-created the soap opera Compact and wrote for programmes such as The Avengers (the episodes Ashes of Roses, Dance with Death, and Box of Tricks) before he devised a new soap opera, Crossroads.

In recent years, Peter Ling has published several novels, including the novelisation of The Mind Robber for Target Books.
