Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale: The Final Chapter (BBC Digital, 2013)

The Writers TaleThis is a series of emails between Russel T Davies and Ben Cook during the last two years of Russel’s writing for Doctor Who.  It is extraordinary in that it shows exactly what it takes to create those wonderful scripts he wrote.

But although I am not a TV fantasy script writer – I recognised the process.  I too have a ‘maybe’. I procrastinate and then write like the clappers.  The book is about, not just the creative process for writing TV scripts, but the creative process itself.  At least when it involves writing.

A fascinating read for everyone who writes with sincerity and passion.
