Jeremy Bentham — co-founder of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society in 1976 — was one of Doctor Who Weekly's two original writers. From roughly the end of the Weekly era until 1982, he was the only writer of the publication. (MM VHS 18)

Although his formal title was "associate editor", editors Dez Skinn and Paul Neary gave him a largely free hand to decide what textual content the magazine would have each week — since he would also have to write it. This gave him a kind of influence over the direction of the magazine that was not true of most people who subsequently held the title of "associate editor". (MM VHS 47) However, this also meant that the magazine was entirely dependent on Bentham's ability to write each issue. He left in 1982, some two-and-a-half years after Weekly had morphed into Monthly. (MM VHS 18)

Later, he wrote the reference book Doctor Who: The Early Years and contributed to Doctor Who: A Celebration by Peter Haining.

He also appeared in the Reeltime Pictures production, The Corridor Sketch, credited as J. Jeremy Bentham.
