    I must say that I'm enjoying RTD's/Benjamin Cook's book THE WRITER'S TALE. Lots of juicy stuff and really a terrific examination of the script writing process.

    Anyone else reading it?

    Sure am. I had it shipped in from the UK and am about 50 pages in. Still in the throes of scripting Voyage fo the Damned. Lots of great stuff here!

    Just finished this and thoroughly enjoyed it. The format was a little strange at first but it definitely gave an insight into RTD's approach to writing and how the last series evolved.

    Barnabeee has a good review of the book in one of the upcoming Doctor Who: Poshock episodes (I can't recall off hand if it is 132 or 133 now).

    I received a copy for my birthday last week & am ploughing through it. It is thoroughly enjoyable. I cant believe how far into the future RTD works & what an incredibly talented graphic artist he is. Will do a more in depth review when I have finished it. Hopefully before Xmas.
