Doctor Who Developments

My first comic strip, Earworm, was published in Doctor Who Adventures magazine on February 11.  Writers don't get to see the artwork ahead of publication, so it was a joy to see the finished article upon returning from holiday a few days back.  Artists John Ross and Alan Craddock did a brilliant job of bringing this story to the page.  I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope to do more comic strippery soon.

In other Eleventh Doctor news, my BBC audiobook Doctor Who: The Gemini Contagion now has two release dates: March 1 for download-to-own and March 10 for shiny CD.  My comp copies arrived yesterday and I finally got to hear the finished recording.  I'm blown away by Meera Syal's delivery - she really goes at the material, switching voices and accents with ease.  I feel slightly guilty for two things: making her do a fair bit of guttural bellowing and also including such an international cast of characters.  The voice she's given alien scientist Korn Palloa is particularly applause-worthy.

At the moment, I'm still working hard on two Doctor Who projects for Big Finish.  Enjoying them immensely.  Hope you're splendidly well!  Good day.

I'm a huge fan of audiobooks but hadn't paid much attention to the Who books before. Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to snag it.

Nice one! Having written both comic strips and Doctor Who books in the past, I'd love to write a DW strip for DWA!
