Oh do go away you tedious person

Gareth Roberts wrote a bunch of Doctor Who books, comics and audios throughout the 90's and 00's and went on to write for the TV show.

All of this is very much in past tense, since his recent Twitter postings seem to suggest that he was recently erased from Doctor Who. These coincided with an surge of Zygonphobic rhetoric, salty digs at Moffat, and complaints about recent episodes, all of which would assuredly preclude his ever working on the show again. What truly led to the downfall of Roberts may not come to light for quite some time.

That's Gareth!

The listings with an asterisk (*) were later adapted as Big Finish plays. Speaking of which:





Known for being a huge Tom Baker fan, hating PE teachers, looking like a thumb, and writing comfy episodes.

He also likes a bit of Pip and Jane.

Gareth Loves /who/

One quiet day in April 2016, we started feeling bad about Gareth's erasure (and all the subsequent Nazi memes). Knowing that he'd replied to fan art at least once before, "Splink2" tweeted his official Paint Anon portrait and invited him to visit /who/.

Although Gareth declined the invitation (doesn't do forums, apparently... smart man), he still sent /who/ his "big love".

Gareth Hits The Headlines

Roberts became the talk of the LGBTQ+ community in late 2017 when he decided to spread his increasing great love of humanity to the transgender companions of this world, accusing "trannies" of being "confused gayboys" on the basis of picking names like 'Chelsea' and 'Paris' instead of... [checks notes] 'Julie' or 'Bev'. Okay then.

Popular British queer site PinkNews tweet-asked Gareth for comment, which is when we knew shit was getting real. The resulting article doesn't really shed new light on the story, but will be sure to solidify the growing perception of Gareth as a controversial figure. It also provides us with this amusing screenshot. The Cletus Cull continues...

How will he ever recover?
