A quick note on some Doctor Who-related stuff I’ve got coming up in the New Year. I’ll give more details on each in due course but for now, just the headlines…
- During the summer I was one of four Season 18 writers participating in a filmed chat for the as-yet unscheduled Blu Ray release. All of us around a table in a rather nice pub. I’ve seen an early cut and it’s turned out rather well.
- I’ve signed a contract for a BBC Audiobook of the Terminus novelisation, and…
- After banging on about the ‘lost’ version of the Warriors’ Gate novelisation for many years, I finally bit the bullet and reassembled the text from surviving fragments, again for BBC Audio. The production will be something special. With BBC Books focusing more on recent material, there are no plans at this stage for a print version.
- Frank Collins is working on The Black Archive #29, a book-length study of Warriors’ Gate. Along with interviews from me, director Paul Joyce, and others, he’s had access to all my drafts and working papers in the Hull History Centre.
- Neil Cole’s Museum of Classic Sci-fi in the Northumbrian village of Allendale features some pieces from Warriors’ Gate and, most impressively, the original Garm mask and costume from Terminus.
More on each of these as news becomes available.
And in the meantime, there’ll be the audio release of Casting the Runes, a contemporary production featuring Tom Burke, Anna Maxwell Martin, with Reece Shearsmith as Karswell, from Audible in December.
