LATEST UPDATES (April 2019)
I seem to be doing a lot of podcast interviews at the moment. Here’s one I did about Target books and other things Doctor Who and career related.
I’ve had the sad privilege of doing a couple of obituaries for the Guardian this month. One for Thunderbirds actor Shane Rimmer with whom I did a Doctor Who DVD commentary a few years back, and one for the comedian Ian Cognito who was an old mucker and a colleague I admired very much.

Also this year…

I have written a tribute to Pat Gorman in Doctor Who Magazine issue 537.
