About Tat Wood

Dorothy Ali's writing has appeared in publications such as "Outside In: 160 New Perspectives on 160 Classic Doctor Who Stories by 160 Writers."Since the far-off days of About Time 6, when "River Song" was just the track even hard-core Donovan fans skipped on the album Hurdy Gurdy Man, Tat Wood has been living within walking distance of the Olympic Stadium, watching it get built with more speed and less care than these books and marveling at the missile emplacements on nearby tower-blocks.
