Myth Makers #119 David Fisher reviewed

David Fisher Myth MakersMyth Makers #119, available from Time Travel TV is an interview with David Fisher. David wrote several Fourth Doctor stories and sometimes worked with Douglas Adams. Due to health problems, David is filmed answering questions, while Nick Briggs sets them out in separately filmed scenes. There are also readings from Target novelisations of David’s Doctor Who stories.

It all provides a fascinating glimpse into the working practice of freelance writers at the BBC in the 1970s and also gives us insight into David’s early influences, becoming a writer after National Service in the 1950s and what he did for TV before working on Doctor Who.

He is very matter of fact and there are several interesting sections, including his methods of getting scientific accuracy, and his version of how the story Gamble with Time became the David Agnew story City of Death and heavily associated with Douglas Adams.

This is available to buy on DVD, digital or stream: see the product page for more details.
