Peter V. Ware, often credited outside Doctor Who discussions as simply Peter Ware, produced Doctor Who (1996). However, the bulk of his career has been spent as a visual effects producer, for which he was nominated for a Visual Effects Society award in 2005. He has lent his visual effects talents to a number of high-profile shows since his Doctor Who experience, including CSI: Miami, Crossing Jordan, Jake 2.0, and the successful 2009 Scooby Doo franchise reboot, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins.
His own visual effects producer on Doctor Who, Tony Dow, was someone with whom he had worked a couple of times prior to 1996. In at least 1987, Ware was a supervising producer on The New Leave It to Beaver, a show in which Dow naturally reprised his role as Wally, but also exerted considerable behind-the-scenes influence as a sometimes writer and director. Immediately prior to making the 1996 tele-movie, Dow served as visual effects producer on the Ware-produced The Adventures of Captain Zoom in Outer Space, an early satiric forerunner to Galaxy Quest.
In 2013 Ware joined the FX company Drawn By the Light as executive producer.
