Extracts from the autobiography of Double Deckers script editor, Glyn Jones

I'm on the road this weekend, so no time to finalise my write-up of Happy Haunting, I'm afraid. Instead, please enjoy these extracts from No Official Umbrella, the 700-page autobiography of Glyn Jones, who was the script editor of Here Come The Double Deckers and also wrote or co-wrote many of the episodes.




(Five pages of anecdotes about auditions before we get back to Double Deckers:)






And that's it, I'm afraid, apart from one or two passing references later on.

There is also a little about Doctor Who - along with Mark Gatiss and Victor Pemberton, Jones is one of the few people to have both written a Who story (The Space Museum) and appeared in one (The Sontaran Experiment) - but I'll save that for when I write the book up properly.
