The author has praised the show but also pointed out when he find it difficult to lose himself in the plotting:
“I think there was an episode where the TARDIS towed planet Earth [Journeyâ€™s End]. What I liked was the teacups were rattling. If the teacups are rattling, how high is the tsunami in the Pacific at this point?”
Pratchett recently revealed that he is a fan of Doctor Who but in his view, it isnâ€™t Science Fiction:
“It’s hugely gripping entertainment, but it’s totally pants science fiction. Because there really isn’t any science.â€
Proper scientific theory or not, itâ€™s always good for the show to have backing from a popular figure in literary circles!
