Andrew Marshall was one half of the Marshall Renwick team that produced "The Burkiss Way", "Whoops Apocalypse", and "Hot Metal". Since then he has gone on to create the TV comedies such as "2 point 4 Children", "Health & Efficiency", and "Dad".

Rumour has it that he is at least partly the basis for the personality of Marvin the Paranoid Android from The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
