Also thanks to;-
...my brother Russell for always being on hand to give
me first feedback whenever I finish writing an episode, and for letting me borrow Sarlad...
...Jane Walton for endlessly pestering me until I agreed
to rewrite Freedom (although, as Sarkoff once said, "I'm not sure I have anything to thank you for"), and for providing
my most regular written feedback...
...Nicola Mody-Nikoloff for being so strident about
my portrayal of Vila (and also for having never had a go at me for the inexcusable number of times that I've forgotten the
hyphen when typing out her name in full)...
...Tony Attwood for writing Afterlife (yeah,
I know a lot of you are crying, "WHAT?!?" at that - what I mean is reading it is a fantastic boost to my writing confidence,
as I know that no matter how badly I write an episode it'll still be heaps better than anything he did)...
...Brian McLennan for the "unswerving honesty" of his
critical assessments. >Ahem<...
...Andrea Catherwood of ITN for having the most luminous,
fascinating and inspiring pair of eyes in the history of British newsreading (eat your heart out, Angela Rippon!)...
...and Oliver Cromwell for not executing me as a papist
conspirator after I used his name in a recent episode without permission (admittedly, the cause of that may be less generosity
and more the fact that he's been dead for three hundred and fifty years but still...).
