Victory of the Daleks - Mark Gatiss
Wow! Thanks! Although "Victory" isn't a particular favourite episode of mine, this is well worth the read!Victory of the Daleks - Mark Gatiss
"Night Terrors" isn't a favourite of mine either (actually my least favourite Series 6 episode), but still worth reading.* An Adventure in Space and Time, on the other hand, is one superb docudrama! Cannot thank you enough for all the rare treasures!
Well it's interesting reading them because it becomes clear that, even when I didn't like the finished episode, Gatiss is a damn fine writer. His scripts are extremely readable, he gets the atmosphere of each scene across (a difficult task) and he's good at establishing distinct characters quickly. Reading these, I do begin to think that he's had a bit of bad luck with directors. Or maybe certain aspects just don't play well in 45 minutes."Night Terrors" isn't a favourite of mine either (actually my least favourite Series 6 episode), but still worth reading.* An Adventure in Space and Time, on the other hand, is one superb docudrama! Cannot thank you enough for all the rare treasures!
* I once read in a screenwriting guide that it's always a good idea to read bad and poorly written scripts (film and TV], which I would highly recommend to any writers and readers.
Fantastic news! Can't wait to have a read of those!Heads up to anyone thinking of ordering the new Season 19 blu-ray, you get PDFs of all the Season 19 scripts included, so the scripts for Castrovalva, Kinda, The Visitation, Earthshock, Black Orchid and Timeflight
Reportedly they're doing Season 10 & Season 18 next, hopefully they'll do the same there
Have no fear! I've sent an open request tweet thread to request for BBC Writersroom if they could ask official DW team about adding the first two Series 11 episodes, to their library. Here's what I got in response:If anyone knows anywhere I could get PDFs or reproductions of New Series Dr Who scripts that aren't on the BBC website, please reply or DM me.
So glad they've added them, even though they're still yet to add a few from Series 11. Toby Whithouse has nailed these 3 scripts, along with my all-time favourite School Reunion, and it's such a privilege to have downloaded them. On Series 11, I hope BBC Writersroom will add The Woman Who Fell to Earth, The Ghost Monument, Rosa, and Resolution because they introduce the main characters and concepts, even though not everybody would enjoy them all.
