Today's the day. Volcano Day.
The day I achieve my lifelong dream of having my very own Doctor Who episode on telly. I can't tell you how excited I am. Because if I tell you, I'll have to think about it in detail, and then I'll get even more excited, and my head will explode. Let's just say: I am very, very excited.
It's on at 6.45pm, BBC1. My first BBC1 thing! Blimey. Straight after, on BBC3, Doctor Who Confidential goes into much detail about the shoot in Italy, and probably has about 24 seconds of me talking, because let's face it, people would rather look at the actors talking in Italy than a pasty-faced, babbling writer talking on a noisy set in Cardiff. I know I would. But I did get interviewed on set, so I'm bound to be in there somewhere (I haven't seen it yet). And on a related note, at 9.10pm on BBC4, make sure to watch Pompeii: The Last Day, which is a fantastic docudrama about - well, the clue's in the title. It's really good, and full of Science and stuff, as well as explanations for how some of the victims ended up in certain places. No aliens though, which is a bit of a let down. Seriously, if you're interested in Pompeii at all, it's well worth watching.
Anyway. I've got some people round for the viewing party, and a shedload of booze for us all to get through, so I'll keep this brief. I'm really proud of the episode, and think the entire cast and crew have done wonders. I really hope you enjoy it. And if you don't, I'll come round your house and piss on one of your sofa cushions. You won't know which one, until you sit on it. Yeah. I don't mess about. I am hardcore.
