Imagine our surprise here at Blogtor Towers, on a slow news~day/week/month, when the official website for The Writer’s Tale used a quote from the recent review of The Writer’s Tale: The Final Chapter (read it HERE). Written by Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook, the book is an in-depth discussion of the creative life of Doctor Who covering Russell’s final year as Head Writer and Executive Producer of the show. With over 300 pages of new material, and taking in events from the entire five years since the show’s return in 2005, The Writer’s Tale: The Final Chapter is the most comprehensive – and personal – account of Doctor Who ever published.

Visit The Writer’s Tale website HERE where you can download scripts from the Specials (and more!) HERE and find out what other blogs have been saying about it HERE. Thanks again to BBC Books, Ebury Publishing and Benjamin Cook.

ETA: Thanks to reader Kilbey who pointed out that Blogtor Who also features in the cartoon on the same page! (Pictured below)


  1. That's awesome that RTD was gracious enough to do something like that. In fact, I feel this is another one of those things that punches a hole through the argument about RTD being nothing more than an arrogant ass.

    If he was really like that, he wouldn't have given you or the other people he cited on there the time of day. Plus, from what I've seen on "Doctor Who Confidential", he wouldn't be as open and collaborative with everyone. From the cast and crew, to the creature and special effects people, he was very keen to make sure everyone did the best work possible. I hope I get this book soon, cos I really want to get inside the head of the genius that is Russell T. Davies!
