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.

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 […]

Thirty Years a Writer

Today’s the 22nd of March. Which means that tomorrow, the 23rd of March I will have been writing professionally for thirty years – as that date, back in 1987 was the day that I first walked into Rathbone Place and entered the offices of YOUR SINCLAIR magazine. Weirdly, at the time I didn’t want to be a writer. In fact, I wanted […]
