In the DWU[]

Paul Cornell was a college classmate of Magrs. In his Virgin New Adventure Love and War, Cornell named a junior archaeologist in Bernice Summerfield's party after him.[2]

Later, in Bafflement and Devotion Magrs introduced a closer to reality, quasi-biographical version of himself, which the real Magrs has used on numerous occasions in many stories.
