David Maloney directed several Doctor Who stories between 1968 and 1977. He has also worked as a producer, overseeing the first three seasons of another popular BBC science-fiction series, Blake's 7, during the late 1970s and early 80s. He also produced the BBC's famous 1981 adaptation of John Wyndham's novel Day of the Triffids.

Maloney provided commentary for the March 2006 DVD release of "Genesis of the Daleks," which he directed, and for which he also rewrote the opening scene into a more violent version which displeased both writer Terry Nation and morals activist Mary Whitehouse. He also directed The Deadly Assassin, which featured a drowning scene that was also criticized as excessive by Whitehouse.

In 1977, Maloney appeared in "Whose Doctor Who," an installment of The Lively Arts news programme which addressed the criticisms leveled by Whitehouse and others about the show allegedly being too intense for younger viewers. He died on 18th July 2006.
