Ben Aaronovitch is a British writer and known Terry Pratchett fan, best known these days for the Peter Grant series of urban fantasy novels, beginning with Rivers of London. These were partially inspired by a comment in The Science of Discworld that if magic existing on Roundworld, Isaac Newton would have discovered it. Prior to that he worked in television, notably writing a stories for each of the final two seasons of the original run of Doctor Who, as well as the novelisation of one for Target Books and three original Doctor Who novels for Virgin Books.
