A Message from Ryan Danes author of Sydney Newman biography 'The Man Who Thought Outside the Box'

I have just released Sydney Newman's biography THE MAN WHO THOUGHT OUTSIDE THE BOX, which will feature in Doctor Who Magazine 513, and is at the moment being reviewed for the Summer issue of Cosmic Masque.

I wondered if there would be any interest in the summer on a lecture on Sydney, and on the origins of the show?
