Rob is due to appear from 11am, where he will present clips and chat with Kasterborous editor Christian Cawley. See Vworp 3 News for the full schedule.

    Rob Shearman is a very talented chap, and “Dalek” is one of the best Doctor Who scripts ever written. I hope they bring him back soon to write for the Moffat era.
