I wrote tonight's Doctor Who. And next weeks. AMA.
Want to know what the mummy smells like? What it's like to write on the British institution that is Who? How I got the gig? How I got the gig twice? Where I buried the bodies? Ask away.
But a word of advice: Treat this as a chance to look behind the curtain of the show, not to rage about it.
Seriously - any I preferred Tennant/Smith/RTD “questions” I'll just ignore. Similarly, if you hated the episode, you're welcome to that opinion, but again, not likely to get a response. There are plenty of other forums to vent out there. This is not one of them.
Also, check out my previous AMA.. If you have questions about my early years or starting in writing, it may have been covered there. Could save us all a bit of time. And by all of us, I mean me.
Those of you in other time zones, don't despair. I will check back tomorrow (Sunday) and answer some more. I am in this for the long haul people.
Okay, let's do this. My name is Jamie Mathieson. I'm 44 years old and I've been a Redditor for seven years. I am a colossal geek for comics, computer games and sci-fi of all stripes. I used to be a stand-up and recently I wrote two episodes of Doctor Who. AMA. (I'll start answering after the show)
Okay, been typing solidly since the show aired and am beat. It's 00.13 in the UK. I'll be back again tomorrow for the US. Thanks for all the great feedback. Reddit rules.
Back again. Hello America! 8.00 am here. Come at me!
Well that was fun. I feel I paid my Reddit dues. Thank for all the nice feedback. I'm outta here.
