The Writer's Tale - More Info

Some more information has been released about the new book, The Writer's Tale, written by Russell T. Davies and Benjamin Cook, including a short excerpt, more signing places and page previews. You can read part of this short excerpt from the book below, and read the full article from The Times here;

BC: "Tell 'em that you'll stay on for three million quid and Freddie Ljungberg on a serving dish! Go on, just for a laugh. See what they say. You are probably right to decline, but were you tempted? Just a little bit tempted?"
RTD: "Tempted? To do a fifth series? Not for a second. Weird, isn't it? I'm going to go to bed and think that through, and wonder why that is exactly. I'm not sure. I think, really, it's because the option is untenable, because way back, around the time that we filmed Doomsday, we promised this course of action to David. And to each other. We decided that we'd have a fourth series (David's third), with a big ending, after which we'd take the show off air, just for a short while, apart from the odd special, so that we could have a breather, and a new production team could settle in, find its feet, and prepare for Series Five. And there's all sorts of other plans, for the future, but...I'm almost superstitious about putting things into print."
More signings have been released at various places, so here is the full-ish list. Both Russell and Benjamin should be appearing at all of them, unless they cannot make it;

And lastly, here are four page previews from the inside of the book:
