Personal Quote:

You're guaranteed to be lucky several times in your life-it's what you do with it. Young writers spend all their time worrying, in a way that David Gerrold did not and I did not. How do they get to meet the right people? How do they get to the right parties? If only someone would read my script... Forget all that. All these things are easy and will happen.

Trivia:

He was asked to write Doctor Who: Daleks in Manhattan (2007)/Doctor Who: Evolution of the Daleks (2007), but he was busy with _Jekyll_. When it became clear that he wouldn't be able to write the Dalek two-parter, he volunteered to write the Doctor-lite episode of the season. That turned out to be Doctor Who: Blink (2007), one of the most beloved episodes of Doctor Who (2005). See more »

Trademark:

His main characters often hold a lengthy, humorous and sometimes emotional speech to emphasize their personal opinion or to cause a change of heart to others. See more »
