  • Creator and editor of the critically acclaimed Doctor Who anthology (“Excellent … A labour of love … a crackling selection of short stories … the collection has a mythical feel that befits the character and there’s a lyrical poetic quality to the stories. Highly recommended… for a worthy cause … a worthwhile purchase”  – Doctor Who Magazine) Doctor Who – Seasons Of War (A War Doctor Anthology) has been raising money for Caudwell Children since 2015.

  • Currently working on ‘The Bogarde Variations’ (provisional title) a biographical prose poem novel based on the life of the actor and writer Dirk Bogarde and his relationship with Tony Forwood, the man with whom he shared his life for over forty years. ‘The Bogarde Variations’ is based, in part, on elements of a biopic TV/Film screenplay about Dirk Bogarde that I was working on, initially commissioned back in 2005.  However, as if often the way with these things, the project – over multiple drafts, rewrites, changes in producer, production teams, and broadcaster/filmmaker – never saw the light of day.  And so, because it has been such an important “passion project” for me, I decided I might be better served doing it my own way and in a different medium.  Though the possibility of a biopic, based on my scripts, is still occasionally mooted. So, who knows . . ?
