Hey there, you! Stop doing that, it's illegal. I've written a whole load of stuff for the new Doctor Who Magazine, out today. Thirteen whole pages of it. As I always say, this is a shame for me, because it means there's less DWM for me to read. There's still a great deal written by other people, mind you, including a big chat with Steven Moffat about Davros and Part Two of Simon Guerrier's interview with Millennium FX's Kate Walshe.
Here's how my 13 pages break down:
Nine pages: my bumper interview with Toby Whithouse, the writer of recent spooky two-parter Under The Lake/Before The Flood (as well as previous stories like The God Complex and School Reunion) and the creator of Being Human and The Game. This was the product of a chat which ended up being literally three hours long. That Whithouse is a very patient man.
Two pages: my preview of this Saturday's Viking spectacular The Girl Who Died, with chatter from its co-writer Jamie Mathieson (who wrote last year's Flatline and Mummy On The Orient Express). Like his mate Toby, Jamie lives in Brighton, which made it even more of a pleasure to stroll up London Road and quiz him for hours too. There'll be much more from Jamie in next month's issue.
Two pages: my preview of highwayman-tastic The Woman Who Died, with quotes aplenty from scribe Catherine Tregenna, who previously wrote several episodes of Torchwood. Infuriatingly and inconsiderately, Catherine does not live in Brighton, which meant I had to physically get a train and travel to Cardiff. Outrageous. But she's lovely and, again, there'll be more from her next issue.
Yesterday, I interviewed another Series Nine writer at length, who was also lovely. I also read a brilliantly mad script from later in this run, which flat-out blew my mind, but I won't even say which one, because Confidential. Bye then!
I'm a writer of stuff, including Doctor Who, Black Mirror, Friday The 13th and Beast In The Basement.
