Alan Moore (born 18th November 1953) was the writer of a number of back-up features for Doctor Who Magazine during the earlier phase of his career. He left the title alongside fellow writer Steve Moore (no relation), in response to editor Alan McKenzie taking one of Steve's strips without his knowledge. [1]

Now regarded as the most acclaimed comic book writer of all time, he profoundly influenced late 1980s Doctor Who era Script Editor Andrew Cartmel, who asked him to submit story ideas to him. Cartmel ended up saying no to his proposals. Scenes from Moore's The Ballad of Halo Jones had an influence on the Doctor Who stories Paradise Towers, Dragonfire and The Greatest Show in the Galaxy as Cartmel had shown Ballad to script writers as an example of the style of story he wanted to, in part, emulate.

His daughter, Leah Moore, has co-scripted The Whispering Gallery for IDW Publishing.
