Ian was a very good writer and my wife and I enjoy hearing both the Mystery Theater episodes he wrote and the ones he appears in.

Denny

He and Robert Dryden were the real workhorses in the CBSRMT.

Brian

EG Marshall is great in Christmas Vacation

John

I really enjoy Ian Martin as a writer and an actor

This weekend I am watching Canadian soap opera and cult classic Strange Paradise....very similar to Dark Shadows (which I Looove). Turns out the first 9 weeks were written by CBSRMT writer Ian Martin...No wonder I like it!

One thing I've noticed recently is that Ian Martin liked to write episodes set in hospitals--and liked to play doctors. His knowledge of medicine seems to be pretty sound and sometimes rather technical. Does anyone know if he had some sort of medical training prior to becoming a writer?

Andrew

I don't know about his medical background, but I will say that the reason I enjoyed Ian Martin's episodes more than any of the others is the sheer volume of research he undertook to make the episode sound authentic. I imagine he interviewed professionals to get their lingo and banter down.

I remember that Ian Martin had also written for soaps, so I did some investigating. I found that Ian Martin was a writer on "The Young Doctor Malone." It is appears that he was involved in the radio series. Maybe he had a few ideas or unused plots he figured he could use for the Mystery Theater? Just a thought. I'm sure as a writer for that soap (as well as others), it necessitated his needing to have background knowledge (and already a possible interest) in medicine.

Very interesting. I obtained my MD by watching and rewatching episodes of ER, so writing for a show had to be the next best thing...;-)

Andrew

I went through this entire list to count the number of episodes Ian was writer on. For the record, 123 episodes are known of.
