|“||Deep down you know Alien Bodies is the best thing you've ever written, and you know nothing you write is ever going to have the same impact again.||”|
— Steven Moffat, shortly before the series went on to use both major concepts of the book as plot points.
Lawrence Miles, also known as Mad Larry, Sad Larry, and "that autistic faggot who wanted me to watch Bagpuss"
is was a writer of all dem spin-off books in the 90s, and most famous for being the most DEEP and pretentious out of the whole lot and as such is hailed as the BEST WRITER EVER to be involved in Doctor Who, despite 99% everything he ever wrote is basically Doctor Who fanfiction. This is due to how 1) anything's good compared to Gary Russell and 2) Miles is a legitimately autistic trenchcoat-sporting neckbeard who can't get the fuck over a tacky family show. Has in recent years acquired a reputation (mostly thanks to posts on his blog here: ) for hating sci-fi fans, his fellow writers and and of course Stefan Mosfat
In short, he is /who/ made flesh.
Instances of plagiarism by later writers Edit
Miles is known for having his work plagiarised by subsequent Doctor Who writers. Approximately 75% of New Who was lifted from one Miles story or other. (Loads of these are probably coincidences. Loads of these probably aren't. Miles did them first*, and no one's given him any credit.) (Disclaimer: if you are taking this seriously, you're the only one.)

DID u Knwow? Edit
- He loves Love and Monsters and hates The Deadly Assassin
- Was parodied in SPLINK both in the character of Larry and more correctly in that neckbeard watching the TV in the DVD shop and who was moaning over its plotholes.
- He actually makes far better points than that Amerifat SJW and his circlejerk ever did, mostly on account of not being an SJW (he is a leftist but loathes political correctness so naturally is a SHITLORD).
- Created Faction Paradox, a series
featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry seriesall about a splinter of Time Lords who dress up all edgy and grimdark with blood rituals and voodoo costumes, and basically are anti-Time Lords who fuck up time for the lulz. In short, he basically made a concept designed to rape MUH CANON fags up the arse, so naturally everything related to Faction Paradox is non-canon
- Wrote "About Time" with Twat Ood, a 6-volume "analysis" of the whole series that apparently stands at 1.7 million words, which is more than the Torah, Bible and Koran combined, and definitely more than the show's fucking writers themselves ever wrote. Now that's what I call sperging out.
- Loathes Neil Gaiman with a passions, because he manages to get laid, whereas Miles has admitted to only sucking dick.
- He also hates Paul "Shagger" Cornell for that reason too, apparently
- He also hates Moffat for this reason, and has used identical language to express his displeasure with all three.
- He asked Jay-Z if he was real or a hallucination. (This really happened.)
- He still watches Teletubbies, Bagpuss, and was collecting My Little Pony dolls before ponyfaggotry was even a thing, and Moffat thinking this was "sad" is the real reason why he's developed a desire to rape and murder him.
- He stepped down from editorship of the Faction Paradox line some time around 2013 to fulfil a fruitful career in starting blogs and then never posting on them, which can and should be taken as proof that Moffat has broken him.
- When asked about going back to writing, he said he forgot who he sold the Faction Paradox license to and can't be bothered to check, so anyone reading this wiki page probably cares more about FP than Larry does right now.
- Will die alone ;______;
- Is still far superior and 100% correct about Moffat though.
