Now We Are Six Hundred

Author James Goss and former showrunner Russell T Davies have collaborated on a new book of Doctor Who poems accompanied by endearing illustrations.


AA Milne’s poetry collections, Now We Are Six and When We Were Very Young.

Just like Donna Noble, he turned right – and became a comic artist instead.

“It’s what I always wanted to do!” he laughs, as if it sounds ridiculous now. “I loved comics and wanted a career in art and design. But at school I was persuaded by a stupid careers teacher that I couldn’t do it because I was (mildly) colour-blind.
