Mark Harrison

Mark is a writer from Middlesbrough, who once drunkenly tried (and failed) to pitch a film about his hometown to a director from Pixar. Fortunately, he also has several other projects on the boil, including feature film scripts, and writing and performing comedy sketches with Cheap Craic. His writing for Den Of Geek is largely either about Doctor Who, or the question "What does Hollywood think it's playing at?" Mark also reviews new cinema releases and TV shows at The Mad Prophet.
