The Man from Another Place #3: Doctor Who: The Witch Hunters (1998)

Another in an occasional series where I highlight writing I’ve done for other blogs.

This piece was written for Joshua Stevens’ Doctor Who blog, Pure Historical, which combines two of my favourite things, Doctor Who and history.

The ‘space helmet for a cow’ line will never not be funny.

When Joshua asked me to write a piece I’d thought I’d try for a non-TV story and had recently finished re-reading Steve Lyons’ 1998 novel The Witch Hunters, which effectively invokes the early William Hartnell era while combining it with a story that Studio D at Lime Grove probably wouldn’t have been able to cope with.
