A tale of graduate school burnout. Should be mandatory reading for anyone planning a master’s or PhD.

    I looked up last night some of the writers from whom Bidmead commissioned storylines, who didn’t reach script stage – the names are well-recorded in Doctor Who reference sources, but not their backgrounds. There is a Terence Greer described as an Australian playwright, but was he the same person as the book illustrator? Malcolm Edwards and Leroy Kettle were commissioned for a storyline – both of whom seem to be well-known SF fans and writers, Edwards being latterly managing director of Gollancz. Andrew Stephenson, commissioned for Farer Nohan, is a published SF novelist and short story writer. This really was getting back to basics, recalling the exercise, made before David Whitaker arrived as story editor in 1963, to get SF writers to draft storylines for Doctor Who which could then be written up by script department staff.
