Aaronovitch, Ben

Tagged: Author

(1964-    ) UK author, primarily known for his television work, whose first genre work was the script for the Doctor Who serial Remembrance of the Daleks (1988), one of the most successful adventures of that period in the series' life. Aaronovitch novelized it as Remembrance of the Daleks (1990). After the 1989 cancellation of Doctor Who, he wrote three contributions to the Doctor Who: The New Adventures series: Transit (1993), The Also People (1995) and So Vile a Sin (1997).

The Rivers of London/Peter Grant sequence beginning with Rivers of London (2011; vt Midnight Riot 2011) is Urban Fantasy [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] featuring an engaging black Metropolitan Police detective who is involved in police-procedural investigations complicated by Magic and Supernatural Creatures set for the most part in a fantasy-tinged version of London; The Furthest Station (2017) focuses on the rich territory of London Underground, including the London Underground itself. The novel series continues, accompanied by Comics set in the same milieu which are not novel adaptations but interpolated or tangential stories each assembled as a Graphic Novel, the first of these being Body Work (graph 2016).
