Rona Munro started writing professionally in 1981 and has since written for film, television, stage and radio. She wrote plays for The Play on One (1988) as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was accepted to the BBC's writer's training course. She met Doctor Who (1963) script editor Andrew Cartmel there, who was receptive to her desire to write for the series as a long-term fan of it. The result was Doctor Who: Survival: Part One (1989), which would become the final transmitted serial of the original run. She subsequently wrote for Casualty (1986) and further television work included Bumping the Odds (1997) and Rehab (2003). Her film credits include Ladybird Ladybird (1994), directed by Ken Loach, and Aimee & Jaguar (1999).
