Robert Shearman (sometimes credited as Rob Shearman) is an English playwright of theatrical and audio productions and a short story writer. He has written many audio scripts for Big Finish Productions Doctor Who stories , though he is perhaps best known for writing the television episode Dalek, which was loosely based on his audio play Jubilee.
Under the pseudonym of "Jeremy Leadbeater", he authored the audio drama Punchline, part of The Time Travellers series made by BBV Productions. It starred Sylvester McCoy who gave high praise to the script.
Jubilee Pizza appeared in several Doctor Who and Torchwood episodes and on The Sarah Jane Adventures. It first appeared in Dalek as a subtle reference to Shearman and his original script Jubilee which formed the loose basis for the script.
