  • The Three Doctors…

    As a child, I got into Doctor Who through the TV series. But, as it was the 70s, there was no DVD back catalogue – so the Target novels were my way to the stories of the previous Doctors. When I was about eight, I gained my first Target book – it was The Three […]

    Walking The Dog…

    People often ask me how I’m so productive, and more importantly how I can work on so many projects atonce without bleed or burnout. I often cite my history as a journalist as something that hones this skill, where a deadline is hours rather than weeks – but the truth of the matter is that […]

  • Ten Years Ago…

    Going through my hard drive and I’ve found a folder of con photos from 2008, especially from San Diego Comic Con 2008, where DOCTOR WHO: THE FORGOTTEN had just come out and IDW were pimping it heavily. And at some point during the weekend I’d managed to get a PR shot with a Doctor Who […]

    Kit Marlowe…

    So recently I’ve been spending a lot of time with Christopher ‘Kit’ Marlowe – first off he’s a major character in DARK LINES OF LONDON, a graphic novel I wrote with Stephen Saleh last year, currently being drawn by Mariela Malova and being announced at this years’s London Film and Comic Con – but also […]

  • I am the Sixth!…

    Ten years ago today, I met Colin Baker for the first time at the MCM Comic Con in London, while he was signing at the Weta booth. I’d just been announced as the writer of DOCTOR WHO: THE FORGOTTEN, was signing at the comic zone and introduced myself to him. Even though I was a […]

    Harker and World Dracula Day…

    As it’s #WorldDraculaDay, and as I’m shameless, remember that my Graphic Novel Sequel to Dracula, ‘Harker’ – the only graphic novel sequel ever to be endorsed by the Stoker Family – is celebrating it’s tenth anniversary this year. Completely ‘in canon’ with the original, and set six months after the events in the book, the last […]

  • Mister Clip Clop has arrived…

    So the nice people at Hachette Books / Franklin Watts sent me the first hard cover proofs of MISTER CLIP CLOP – INTERGALACTIC SPACE UNICORN and THE TIMELY ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN CLOCK! Mister Clip Clop first began existence as RAVEN SABLEMANE, a Kymellian character in a CAPTAIN BRITAIN reboot that eventually never happened – named […]

    Budapest Is Rising…

    When I was a kid, the only thing I knew about Budapest was from a song in the musical CHESS, which talks about the 1956 Budapest Rising. That was pretty much it, apart from a barely remembered weekend break there about fifteen years ago, where all I remember visiting was a restaurant called ‘Sir Lancelot’s‘, […]

  • The Bandits Are Coming…

    Oho! I can finally announce that I’m doing a series of eight Graphic Novels for Hachette / Franklin Watts books called BANDITS, with eight amazing artists! Aimed at 8-12 year olds, and with a focus on reluctant reading teenagers, we have: Grandpa’s Goalscarers – art by Ben Scrutton Agent of P.A.W.S. – art by Wil […]

    The Doctors Are In…

    So last week I had a momentous occasion. Two, really. The first was that I was at the BBC / Massive Events Sherlocked USA convention in Los Angeles as the host – and more of that later – but the second, and more important of the two was that on Friday 26th May ay 1.45pm I became an official BBC Drama […]
