Paul Cornell wrote several New Adventures and edited several Bernice Summerfield anthologies for Big Finish Productions.

He co-authored The Avengers Programme Guide.

Paul Cornell was responsible for several additions to the Doctor Who universe. He created Bernice Summerfield and Wolsey the cat. "A friend of mine has a cat called Wolsey, and I wanted there to be a cat in the TARDIS, and I put it to Peter Darvill-Evans and Co. And they said No no no. And then a few nights later at a nice drinking session Rebecca said, 'Thish cat Poll, Thish cat Wolsey, we'll av im we'll av im'." [1]

He also wrote Father's Day for the 2005 series of Doctor Who, and adapted his novel Human Nature into the two-part Human Nature/The Family of Blood for the 2007 series. Both were nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form, although he lost out both times to fellow Who scribe Steven Moffat.

He was later nominated in the Best Graphic Story category for The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who, making him the only person to be nominated in two separate categories for his work on Doctor Who.
