The Doctor Will See You Now…

Not the Doctor you probably expect on this Doctor Who anniversary, but instead the long running BBC One Daytime Medical Drama Doctors, which has been running since 2000, and has a daily viewing figure of about 2 – 3 million people. Why am I mentioning this? because I can finally announce that I’ve been commissioned to write an episode of [&hellip

San Diego Blues…

Last week was the San Diego Comic Con, and for the first time in three years I was back. Which felt weird, as I also haven’t been writing many comics in that time either

I’ve known both Phil Ford and Russell T. Davies for several years now, pretty much since Doctor Who was revamped eight years ago, and over the years and conventions Phil’s become one of my closest industry friends, so ever since Wizards Vs Aliens was first mentioned to me at an LA convention, I’ve been looking forward to it.

To Pitch, Perhaps To Dream…

I’m a full time, professional writer. Which not only means that I write a lot, but more importantly that someone actually pays me to do this. Someone willingly reaches into their own pocket, pulls out their wallet and gives me money for the thing that I am writing. Which is nice, I’ll admit. Okay, it’s more a company accounting department [&hellip
