Cox studied English at the University of Leeds from which he graduated in 1962. He did not get into the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), but took a job as a floor assistant at the BBC. He was then offered a position on the BBC's training course for directors. Among his first assignments were three episodes of the first season of Doctor Who.[3]

Of all the directors who worked on the 1963-1989 run of Doctor Who, Cox is the only one who did not direct an entire serial at some stage.
