Mark Ayres was a composer for some of the stories of the final two seasons of classic Doctor Who.

He has also worked with the Doctor Who Restoration Team remastering soundtracks for DVD release and for the BBC's CD release of missing stories.

Additionally, he composed the music for Wartime, The Zero Imperative, The Devil of Winterborne, Unnatural Selection, Ghosts of Winterborne, Dæmos Rising and was a producer on Shakedown: Return of the Sontarans. In 2017, he returned for composing duties with the incidental score for the until-then incomplete serial Shada.

In March 2018 he took possession of sound recordings of missing episodes from fan Graham Strong before Graham sadly died later that year. He still remains the custodian of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's archive of music scores and sound effects.
