Here's a bit about her love of our favourite time traveller:
“I have always loved Doctor Who”by Random House Children's Publishers
Thursday, July 4th, 2013
Some of the most exciting names in children’s fiction have been asked to write their own unique adventure about the time-travelling Time Lord. Malorie’s story, The Ripple Effect, features the Seventh Doctor and Ace as played by Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred, and sees the return of the Daleks – but with a twist…
Malorie commented, “I have always loved Doctor Who. From the time I was a child and the Daleks used to make me run and hide behind the sofa, to Saturday morning pictures when I first saw the Doctor Who films featuring Peter Cushing, right up to the current Doctor with Matt Smith. So when I was asked to write a Doctor Who story featuring the Seventh Doctor, I didn’t even need to pause to think about it. My answer was an immediate yes. I’ve always found Sylvester McCoy’s Doctor fascinating because of the way his character developed from a bit of a clown to a Doctor with a more Machiavellian streak. In my story, the Doctor’s actions are responsible for a universal catastrophe which forces him to face up to his own fears and prejudices.”
