No, that is not an exaggeration. Tonight I met Mr. Rob Shearman one of the many brilliant writers from Doctor Who! He’s the mind responsible for Series 1 episode 6 Dalek.
It was SO fantastic! I got to talk to him one on one for a good twenty minutes just about writing, Doctor Who, living in London, etc. And at the end of the night he gave me some great advice on how to make believable aliens in my own writing.
Needless to say, I’m in geekdom heaven right now.
