Paul Cornell Interviewed

British podcast producers Geek Syndicate have just released an epic 90 minute journey through time and space and into the mind of comics and TV writer Paul Cornell, whose credits include Doctor Who, Primeval, Wisdom, Robin Hood and a host of other projects (some of which may surprise).

“On this whistle-stop tour we learn some interesting stuff about Paul including how we got started in writing, who his favorite doctor is, his favourite superhero as well as his favorite medium to work in,” says Barry Nugent of Geek Syndicate, the podcast guide “to the murky underbelly of geekdom”.

The podcast also delves into some of Paul’s renowned Doctor Who episodes and discovers some of the inspirations behind them, and Paul takes listeners through a typical writing day and gives some tips for any would be writers out there, especially his thoughts on writer’s block.

In the pipeline from Paul is the new Marvel comic Captain Britain and MI-13, and Paul shares his thoughts on Cap’s place in the Marvel Universe and, more importantly, the fast growing legend that is Captain Midlands.

The Geek Syndicate, part of the UK Comic Book Podcast Group, are a UK based group fronted by David Monteith and Barry Nugent, producing a critically-acclaimed weekly podcast celebrating and commenting on all aspects of “geek life”, including comics, books, movies, tv, games, technology … and booze!
