Doctor Who at Fifty

Who at 50

As many of you are no doubt aware, I've been a lifelong Doctor Who fan. Surprising, really, that it's taken me this long to write anything about it. The feature below is a piece I wrote for Australian magazine Screen Education. It's a somewhat personal guide to Who, looking at the show's ability to inspire its young viewers to embark on their own creative feats. It certainly did the trick for me. 

The article features interviews with Nicholas Briggs (voice of the Daleks and producer of the Doctor Who audio adventures) and John Richards (writer of sci-fi sitcom Outland and one half of current Who podcast Splendid Chaps).

Hi Myke

Just a dear fan who wishes to say how excited she was to find your young adult book on Amazon! Congrats on award and accomplishment! Looking forward to curling up this winter to another Bartlett Fantastic read! Thanks for fighting the good fight of every writer and getting another one out there! I may not be a young adult but I look forward to where your mind will take me. Thanks again, hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season.

Best wishes
