Robotboy

Yesterday saw the publication of another issue of Doctor Who Magazine with a thing by me in it. The thing on this occasion is a feature on the Cybermen, entitled You Know Our Ways, and, for the first time, reveals the metal giants’ own verdict on their many ingenious Cyber-plans. Which one do they consider the most logical? Which one was the greatest success? It’s all in there, along with me doing my Torchwood joke again. I am also particularly proud of one of the gags for Rise of the Cybermen.


I’m not sure what more I can say about the article. It’s, um, hopefully humorous, which in a way is harder than writing something serious because with some stories a lot of jokes have been made already, and also the article is celebratory so the jokes are affectionate, rather than at the expense of the stories or their production values. Largely.

Anyway, this is the third one of these I’ve done; I’ve now described the events of The Five Doctors from the point of view of the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Master. What next? Well, I suppose I could do it from the point of view of the Brigadier, or K-9, or the Time Lords, or even the Doctor himself... well, we’ll see. Stay tuned!
