Since ''Doctor Who'' he's gone on to have a few small acting roles (his bigger ones were concentrated in theatre) and has written and published the novels ''Fates, Flowers: A Comedy of New York'', ''Vanitas: A Comedy of New York'' and ''Precious Liars'' - a {{trilogy}} centred around intertwining events taking place in New York City. More relevantly in terms of fans, he has also authored a memoir entitled ''Blue Box Boy'' about his time on ''Doctor Who''. Beginning in 2014, he will reprise the role of Adric for a series of audio plays for BigFinish. He has been a permanent resident of the United States since 1998.

Adric's reputation probably wasn't helped by the fact that Matthew Waterhouse was an eighteen-year-old with his only prior acting experiences in the form of a few evening drama classes and a bit part in the John Duttine miniseries ''To Serve Them All My Days''. Waterhouse ''himself'' even attracted controversy after some of his colleagues expressed their impressions that he was perhaps a little ''too'' much like the character he was meant to be portraying in RealLife (Lalla Ward's expressed sentiments about him are a prime example).
