Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.



Stephen Cole, who has also published work under the pseudonyms Michael Collier[1] Tara Samms, Andrew Miller and Paul Grice (born 1 January 1971[2]) is an author of science fiction and children's novels. He was in charge of merchandising at BBC Enterprises between 1997 and 1999, deciding which stories should be released on video. He was also range editor of BBC Past Doctor Adventures and the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures, for which he commissioned Lawrence Miles's Alien Bodies.

He wrote the script for the home video Ian Chesterton: An Introduction.

He is perhaps most famous for his book series Astrosaurs. More recently, he succeeded Charlie Higson as the author of the James Bond spin-off book series, Young Bond, on which he is credited as Steve Cole.
