Orme's prolific film work extended from the 1930s to the 1960s and included a number of the popular Old Mother Riley films starring Arthur Lucan.

His script for the BBC television series Doctor Who, The Underwater Menace, was commissioned by producer Innes Lloyd and recorded with Patrick Troughton in 1967. It featured the notion of Atlantis being buried under the sea and controlled by the insane Professor Zaroff.
