Doctor Who Magazine is fresh on the stands today: the year's most Arnopp-heavy issue. Which pleases me no end, strangely enough, even though there's once again much less for me to read. Before Doctor Who-phobes start skimming, though, I've been meaning to tell you that DWM is arguably a fine magazine for scripters, whether you're interested in the show or not. I can't think of many magazines which go behind the scenes of a television production in such detail, or with such emphasis on the writing process. This issue, for instance, there's an interview with Steven Moffat, as part of the title's ongoing Script Doctors series.
What have I got in there? Sizeable features on the recent episodes 42 and Human Nature, plus a preview of this series' final two episodes and a panel on a tone meeting I attended for The Lazarus Experiment. Splendid.
This issue is also very special for announcing James Moran's debut as Doctor Who writer extraordinaire. James will be scripting an episode for next year's Series Four, so congratulations to the man. It couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke, nor one with a more pinchable little face.
