Script Tease

All of you budding writers and Doctor Who fans out there take note ... the ever-effulgent Jason Arnopp has alerted me to a webpage where you can download six whole shooting scripts (in PDF format) from series four. They were all written by Russell T Davies and they include the three-part finale (Turn Left, The Stolen Earth, Journey's End). Click here, download, enjoy.

They're all part of the promo for Russell's new book - Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale - which chronicles a year spent behind the scenes of the TV show. It's written by RTD and journalist Benjamin Cook and looks as if it will be an interesting read. But it's the scripts that fascinate me. Well spotted Arnopp.

Oh my gosh, that's so cool! Thanks for the link and the info about the book.

Michele - Great, eh? I've been avidly reading them through in the hope of discovering the difference between what he writes and what I write! Talent, I think is the word.

As a footnote, one commenter on Jason's blog (named Combom) has also posted the link for a transcript site that has all of the new Doctor Who scripts from Season 1-4. It's at http://who-transcripts.atspace.com/
