Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on his 1992 novel "Nightshade"] What appealed to me enormously, apart from the sheer thrill of being published, was to have a shot at writing Doctor Who (1963). Not only that, but to write Doctor Who (1963) as I thought it should be done, effectively redressing what I felt to have been wrong with the programme in its later years. See more »

Trivia:

When writing for The League of Gentlemen he writes with Jeremy Dyson, while Reece Shearsmith writes with Steve Pemberton. This is to avoid arguments. See more »

Trademark:

His writings frequently have a Victorian setting to them

Star Sign:
