Not a Tale - a Very True Story, 16 Nov 2009
Are you a fan of Russell T Davies scripts? If you are buying this book you'd better get ready to know some things about him you maybe never want to know. There a lot of people who have frantic, wild youth and there are some people who are 'on the other bus' but have you ever wanted to know that Russell T Davies is one of them?
However, even if you have not, you'd also find a lot of intresting facts, thoughts and opinions in this book. Benjamin Cook is wonderful journalist so he asks very good precise questions. And just to make this book better the answers of Russell is so frank! I've never expected such frankness from a man in showbiz. (I mean from script-writer apart from an actor) That makes this book not only long, informative, humorous and sometimes sad (like every story by RTD) interview but also some sort of author biography. Remarkable man telling about his lifestyle and credo - what could be better to read?
And of course this book is full of beautiful pictures and photos. To hold this book in your hands is already a pleasure because the quality of it is very high.
So now I just look forward to issue of Writer's Tale:The Final Chapter where I can read about specials as well. I really want to know about how Russel T Davies have got courage to write perfectly unexpected finale of Water Of Mars!
