Some Thruths

Although he was feeling more sober as the morning went on, Simon was deeply aware that the payoff for that was an increasing hangover. Continue reading Some Thruths


A Walk in the Park

Another episode of my ongoing series, “Running from Nothing” The trench-coated man leant on the railings of the play area watching the children and parents with the studious fascination of an animal behaviourist. Brian and Simon looked at each other dubiously before leaning next to him. “I’m not sure stopping here is a good idea,” cautioned Brian in a low voice. “It’s only a matter … Continue reading A Walk in the Park

Beating About the Bush

The fourth part of my ongoing fiction project from 2011, “Running from Nothing” “We’re just going to have to get straight out of here.” The trench-coated stranger was darting back into Simon’s flat, making straight for the living room at the far end of the hallway. “Wait a second,” called Simon as he followed him. “I thought you worked for those people.” “Yes, but now … Continue reading Beating About the Bush

Burglars and Police Vans

The third reblogged part of my old fiction project, “Running from Nothing”.

And suddenly the Doctor was no longer one of the biggest names in the industry, but that bloke out of Cassanova. And yet,… Continue reading David Tennant was the best ever Doctor

Regrets, Accusations and Suspicions

This is the second part of a fiction project I began in 2011. Brian was beginning to regret answering the door. Admittedly, it wasn’t that unusual for Simon to appear on his doorstep on a Saturday afternoon, but today he was behaving even more erratically than he normally did. Furthermore, he didn’t usually bring round the new friends he had met while drinking, and something … Continue reading Regrets, Accusations and Suspicions

Christopher Eccleston was the best ever Doctor Who

This is the Ninth in an ongoing series of articles. In 2005, Doctor Who was a zombie franchise. Although the 1996 attempt at a revival was a hit with British viewers, it didn’t get the green light from Fox to make a long-term co-production with Universal come to fruition. Big Finish Productions’ audio dramas were… Continue reading Christopher Eccleston was the best ever Doctor Who
