- Not to be confused with the Doctor Who Magazine editor of the same name.
Peter V. Ware, often credited outside Doctor Who discussions as simply Peter Ware, produced Doctor Who (1996). However, the bulk of his career has been spent as a visual effects producer, for which he was nominated for a Visual Effects Society award in 2005. He has lent his visual effects talents to a number of high-profile shows since his Doctor Who experience, including CSI: Miami, Crossing Jordan, Jake 2.0, Desperate Housewives, and the successful 2009 Scooby Doo franchise reboot, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins.
His own visual effects producer on Doctor Who, Tony Dow, was someone with whom he had worked a couple of times prior to 1996. In at least 1987, Ware was a supervising producer on The New Leave It to Beaver, a show in which Dow naturally reprised his role as Wally, but also exerted considerable behind-the-scenes influence as a sometimes writer and director. Immediately prior to making the 1996 tele-movie, Dow served as visual effects producer on the Ware-produced The Adventures of Captain Zoom in Outer Space, an early satiric forerunner to Galaxy Quest.
In 2013 Ware joined the FX company Drawn By the Light as executive producer.
