Episode 204: Good Hearted Rogues to Xenomorphs - the Dragons' Formative Films

 

Inspiration can come from he strangest and most distant of places. Sometimes you can be writing a book and it's only looking back much later, perhaps even after the book is published, that you see things that influenced you as a writer. Many of these sources of inspiration and theme are encountered during our early years - childhood and teens. To test this theory, this week the dragons put forward a list of their formative films; not necessarily favourite movies, but films which have influenced their storytelling and writing nevertheless. On the slab this week  Hook, Alien, Robin Hood, Labyrinth and many more.
