The author interviewed Mark last year and includes many of his comments in the book.
Mark on The Shorts
(JNT said) - "Look, the girls are always showing off their legs, Jamie wore a kilt, you've been in a black suit all this time, come on get your legs out," I used to cycle from Waterloo, miles and miles a day, and I remember coming in wearing shorts one day and Janet saying "You've got bloody good legs, Mark". When John asked me to get into shorts I remembered that and I thought, "Why not? " I flattered myself that I might become a gay icon and that some girls might like it too!

The Visitation - Special Edition
Astute Turlough fans will know that this story had companions Tegan, Nyssa and Adric but they've invited Mark in to do two documentaries so worth looking at - 77 minutes in total! The Television Centre of the Universe documentary is hilarious and makes it worth the price.
