Ian Levine has made several contributions to Doctor Who. He composed the theme music for K9 and Company, and contributed to Doctor Who: The Unfolding Text. According to himself, he was also the unofficial continuity consultant for Doctor Who in the 1980s, apparently leaving after the casting of Bonnie Langford.[1] He was co-producer of Downtime and for a while collaborated with the Doctor Who Restoration Team on DVD releases of older stories. He was one of the earliest advocates for the BBC to formally begin the process of recovering missing episodes. In the documentary The Missing Years, he credits himself with personally saving the entirety of The Daleks from destruction by BBC Enterprises. He was also responsible for returning various episodes from private collections, such as The Abominable Snowmen episode 2, and Invasion of the Dinosaurs episode 1. He was also the producer of the 1985 charity single Doctor in Distress and released it on his label, Record Shack Records.

On one such DVD range documentary [which?], Elisabeth Sladen swore in response to a question he asked about the clothing of Sarah Jane Smith. This clip gained some attention among fandom social media circles during 2021.[2] Ian himself responded, claiming that the response was a light-hearted joke between the two of them.[3]

He later received thanks for work on Ian Chesterton: An Introduction.

He has claimed he co-wrote Attack of the Cybermen, although Eric Saward disputes this.[4]

In the K9 episode The Cambridge Spy, a newspaper clipping from 1963 mentions "His Honour Chief Justice Ian Levine".

His obsession with the show led to him being parodied in the form of Victor Kennedy for Love & Monsters.[source needed]
