Reality Check: Cynical love songs and Tiny Daleks
Alex Fitch discusses the cruelty of Daleks, short stories in the style of Roald Dahl and the disappearance of Luxembourg with Doctor Who writer and World Fantasy Award winner Rob Shearman! Alex and Rob talk about his various scripts such as Jubilee which was adapted for TV as ‘Dalek’ starring Christopher Eccleston, his short story collections ‘Tiny Deaths’ and ‘Love songs for the shy and cynical’, why there’s no such thing as ‘radical’ Doctor Who and his love of the series from the 1960s to the present day.
