After graduating from Oxford University in 1969, Marter initially worked at the Bristol Old Vic theatre, where he was a stage manager as well as acting in various minor roles. To support his low actor's wages, he also worked for a time as a milkman and a schoolteacher. In 1971 he auditoned for the regular role of Captain Mike Yates in the eighth season of Doctor Who, and although he did not win the part, he sufficiently impressed the production team to be kept in mind and cast in a supporting role in the 1973 story Carnival of Monsters, broadcast as part of the tenth season of the programme. The following year, he was cast in the role of Harry Sullivan, a character developed by the production team when they planned that the incoming Fourth Doctor would be portrayed by an older actor, and thus would not be able to handle the more physical action scenes. However, after forty year-old Tom Baker was cast, this was no longer an issue and Harry was written out after only one season, despite being a popular character who gelled well with Baker and their fellow lead Elisabeth Sladen. Marter remained involved with Doctor Who after his departure from the cast. He co-wrote the script for a potential feature film version, provisionally titled Doctor Who Meets Scratchman (also known as Doctor Who and the Big Game [1]), in collaboration with Baker and film director James Hill, although this never eventually came to fruition. The intention was to have Baker's Doctor come face to face with Scratchman (an ancient British word for the devil). The finale of the film was to have taken place on a giant pinball table, the holes in the table being portals to other dimensions. The project fizzled out due to lack of funding and the dire state of the British film industry at that time. He later became involved with the writing of novelisations of Doctor Who television stories for Target Books, penning nine adaptations in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Marter's novelisations were somewhat controversial,[citation needed] most notably for his use of the word 'bastard' in his novelisation of the 1967 story The Enemy of the World. The last of Marter's Doctor Who novelisations was The Rescue, which had to be completed by range editor Nigel Robinson due to Marter's unexpected death. Marter is, to date, one of only two Doctor Who actors (the other being David Banks) to write licensed fiction based upon the series.
