Love It To Death
The 393rd issue of Doctor Who Magazine is on shop shelves from today, and I've written 15 of its pages. Two of those are a piece about the cover-mounted Big Finish audio CD adventure Cuddlesome, while the others comprise a feature titled Doctor Who's All-Time 100 Greatest Death Scenes. A piece which took me quite some time to put together - especially as it features quotes from the likes of Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat (who I'm interviewing this evening - fantastic), Chris Chibnall, Terrance Dicks, Paul Cornell, Robert Shearman, Gareth Roberts and James Moran. All marvellous stuff, but oh yes, there were moments when I regretted coming up with the whole 100 Deaths concept. Still, the end result is well worth it - I only wish I hadn't written the damn thing, so I could enjoy reading it myself... Also in this issue is an interview with Gareth Roberts and a Fact Of Fiction piece on First Doctor story The Time Meddler. Lovely.
