Ep 10: The Eaters of Light

By Rona Munro

“I was properly surprised when she was happy to come in for a meeting, and I adored the script that came out of it. But I don’t think I really understood how wrong I’d got her, until I saw her wandering around the studio, taking selfies with Daleks, Weeping Angels, and the TARDIS. You see that Rona Munro, of international renown? She’s a Doctor Who fan, she is.”
