Cox went to Ealing Grammar School as a child. He then studied English at Leeds University, and took up a job as floor assistant at the BBC after his graduation.
Doctor Who was Cox's directing debut, after which he worked on the popular "sci-fact" drama Doomwatch and detective series Paul Temple. He also produced episodes of Sutherland's Law and C.A.T.S. Eyes.
He has retired as a director in 1998, and as of November 2020, is the only Doctor Who director to have never directed an entire story.
