Full-time survivor, dandy highwayman, bon vivant, author, journalist and broadcaster yer actual Keith Topping's bibliography includes over 40 books; he was the co-editor of two editions of The Guinness Book of Classic British TV and has written or co-written volumes on TV series as diverse as The X-Files, Star Trek, The Avengers, 24, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Stargate SG-1, as well as music and film critique. He authored four Doctor Who novels (including the award-winning The Hollow Men, with Martin Day) and a novella. His work includes two editions of the acclaimed West Wing guide Inside Bartlet's White House, A Vault of Horror: A Book of 80 Great (and not-so-great) British Horror Movies, Do You Want to Know a Secret?: A Fab Anthology of Beatles Facts and Doctor Who: The Discontinuity Guide. Keith was a regular contributor to numerous TV and genre magazines and was a former Contributing Editor to DreamWatch. He is widely considered one of Britain's foremost experts on the bewildering complexities of US network television. No, he hasn't the faintest idea why either.
