John Williams is a freelance writer and television historian. He has written a large number of articles for the BFI's Screenonline website ranging over such disparate subjects as political drama, the history of British soap opera, Euston Films, Dennis Potter, Trevor Griffiths and Crossroads.
For a number of years he was co-editor of Tachyon TV, a satirical sci-fi comedy site that featured Doctor Who podcasts and reviews before it finally became a more general resource dedicated to articles about archive television. John was the main reviewer of Doctor Who DVD releases before he ran out of cheap jokes, and he also wrote endless reviews covering the whole spectrum from Yus, My Dear to Animal Kwackers to Spooner’s Patch before closing the site in order to avoid the inevitable nervous breakdown.
Mac: The Life and Work of Malcolm Hulke is his first book.
