A definite must-read for fans of the new Doctor Who series, and very illuminating for anyone interested in how television gets written. Probably most interesting for its rather unfiltered portrait of the writing process - you get to see all of the agonizing, the sudden flashes of inspiration, the daft ideas that sound good at 3 am but which look daft the next day, the despair and the triumph. Some readers will probably find this fascinating, some will probably feel a bit like they're watching sausage being made.
