Personal Quote:

[on adapting Bernard Cornwell's novel into the television film Sharpe's Gold (1995)] I didn't use much of the book. I used the first ten pages, I think. Then I had an idea which would be more fun to do. It was all about magic by the time I was through with it. See more »

Trivia:

He was approached to write for the proposed BBC science fiction series Doctor Who (1963) but deplored the concept of the series and refused. He also refused an offer to write for Doomwatch (1970) and was asked to write for The X-Files (1993). See more »
