Aaronovitch, Ben

Tagged: Author

(1964-    ) UK writer, 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) features an engaging black Metropolitan Police detective involved in police-procedural investigations complicated by Magic and Supernatural Creatures in a fantasy-tinged version of London.
