This all began back in summer 2008, in a pub in Aberdare. It was a very strange afternoon in the pub, and I wondered how a man from another world might feel if he found himself in the same situation. I bought a notebook and pen from the shop opposite, sat in a corner of the bar, and started scribbling a few notes. A couple of people asked me what I was up to, and I just said, ‘Oh, it’s a long story.’
But it isn’t.
‘Pit Stop’ is a short story. I was originally going to post it on the Doctor Who Online forums, but it’s more of a post-watershed Tenth Doctor/Torchwood crossover special, so I kept it for my blog. I’ve rewritten it slightly, but the basic structure is the same.
Needless to say, in the Whoniverse chronology the action takes place somewhen between The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End and Torchwood: Children of Earth. And of course, if the crew behind Doctor Who want to option it for TV, they can drop me a line – as long as I can appear as an extra …
I’ve since written one more story (‘The Statues are Moving’), started a third (‘The Rise and Fall of the Cyberbint’), and may do more as the inspiration strikes me.

(If you like this, you might find my blog, An Autobiography in Random Chapters, to be an interesting diversion!)
