Martin Day was born just in time to watch episode four of "The Web of Fear," and his first creative encounter with television was getting a letter about "Castrovalva" read out on Noel Edmonds Multi-Coloured Swap Shop. Hes not sure which fact is most scary. He has written or co-written eight books about television and six novels, most recently Doctor Who - The Sleep of Reason. Some of them are almost readable. Now concentrating on scriptwriting, he has written scripts for the BBC and Channel Five. He lives in Wessex with three humans, a cat, a chinchilla, a hamster, a snake, and numerous tropical fish. The RSPCA have been informed.
