Nev Fountain and Nicola Bryant will be signing The Mervyn Stone Mysteries at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 25th November 6 – 7pm
From Big Finish, these are a mix of comic detective fiction and cheesy old TV sci-fi. Described by David Tennant as ‘Fiendish and funny, Columbo meets Blake's 7 with gags – and sex!’, they open out the world of Mervyn Stone, former script editor of Vixens from the Void, a science fiction TV show from the 1980s. Mervyn now spends his time going to conventions, doing DVD commentaries... and solving murders. A gloriously funny satire on the idiocies of television, Mervyn’s script editor just won’t switch off. He just keeps spotting plot-holes and discovering whodunnit.

He was a principal writer on the award-winning Dead Ringers, and has contributed to shows including Have I Got News For You, The Impressions Show, 2DTV, The News Quiz, Loose Ends and his own radio sitcom Elephants to Catch Eels.
