When I say there’s a ton more beside, I ain’t kidding. @boydhilton spoke to Russell T Davies about @Channel4’s It’s A Sin. Steve Schofield also shot RTD for us in a socially-distanced Soho 🔥

That’s it, I’ve loved it, don’t forget Doctor Who on New Year’s Day and my new show, It’s A Sin, on Jan 22 on Channel 4. But good old Doctor Who. Isn’t it always, always, always the best?! MERRY CHRISTMAS! #SantasARobot xxx

I won’t post the whole thing - this story could still work! But it’s very much my Doctor Who, even in 1985, great big cosmic events all focusing down on an ordinary Earth family. Come and bid, Big Finish! #SantasARobot

OKAY, it’s not the Doctor Who rarity you wanted. It’s not a missing episode, it’s a never-episode. But it’s the first script by the man who went on to relaunch the show in 2005, that’s not too bad! #SantasARobot

When the show closed down in 1989, I had a letter from Andrew Cartmel saying ‘Thank you for your idea, I liked it and put it to one side for consideration but now we’ve closed down…’ (Contrary to what he says in next month’s DWM, fact fans) #SantasARobot

I think I sent this to the Doctor Who production office. I’ve always said in interviews that I sent in a rough version of The Long Game… but think I misremembered, I think it was this. Must have been. It’s not bad, I like it! #SantasARobot

MIND OF THE HODIAC. I think I sent this to the Doctor Who production office. I’ve always said in interviews that I sent in a rough version of The Long Game… but think I misremembered, I think it was this. Must have been. I’s not bad, I like it! #SantasARobot

This script has no title, but it’s undoubtedly called MIND OF THE HODIAC. I’ll post a few pages here, but it’s 62 pages long. I think, in 1985, I imagined that was a 25 minute episode!! Hah. And there’s a synopsis for Ep.2.

HERE IT IS. In preparation for today’s tweetalong, I went through some old papers to find the script and found… the VERY FIRST DOCTOR WHO SCRIPT I ever wrote!! On a manual typewriter! In 1985! 1986? Sixth Doctor and Mel! #SantasARobot

...so much. I think if you asked, you could get her back. For a whole series. i was like, never! She's so busy! She writes her own stuff! Impossible. And look what happened... #SantasARobot

January 2008. Claridge's! The Radio Times Cover Party. Jane Tranter sits down with me, Julie, Phil. I run the 2008 companion past her, Penny. She says, hmm. She said, i saw Catherine yesterday to talk about future projects. But she went on and on about Doctor Who, she loved it...

This astonishing final scene. Two of our greatest actors. Our very greatest. Holding the screen. Look how lucky we are, look at what Doctor Who has become! #SantasARobot
