Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Maybe I’m just being thick here but… why was RTD’s approach to rewrites too open? I agree that resenting Paul Cornell for that specific writing credit wasn’t very professional but other than that… well, he did rewrite most episodes. I can understand hiding this fact as a professional courtesy to the less known writers so that they can get more spotlight but other than that, what’s so wrong about admitting it?

      I’d assume it’s because RTD was strongly suggesting what Cornell was getting praised for was things he actually wrote, and that without his rewrites, the episodes wouldn’t be praiseworthy. There’s a difference between rewriting to fit certain realities of television, or to make it work with the creative vision of the series, and going “All that is good in this series I wrote!”, which is the sense you got from RTD’s complaints about those episodes.
