This week on our Writers of Sci-Fi and Fantasy series we interview Robert Shearman. Best known for his Doctor Who story Dalek, as well as plenty of Big Finish audio adventures (some featuring the talking penguin Frobisher), he is also a playwright and author.

We talked about the writing process, the inner workings of the industry, and just what makes the Daleks scary. Politics, prose, and plays are all thrown into the mix, so sit back and enjoy the exclusive interview.
