"It’s interesting – in real life, I can’t imagine what it would take for the wider world to show even a modicum of forgiveness and understanding towards a convicted mass murderer/despot/war criminal. I can’t think of mitigating circumstances compelling enough for the man on the street – much less the victims of said criminal – to say, ‘He’s not all bad.’ You could find out that the criminal suffered as a child, or started off on the road to his future crimes with the best of intentions, or whatever, but I doubt it would be enough to even partly rehabilitate him in the eyes of the public. And yet… in the world of fiction, things can be a little different." -- James Roberts

"It’s a repurposing of the Lovecraft pastiche to make it a vehicle that tells us more about Lovecraft and his world rather than simply extending the roll call of unpronounceable gods. And rather than regurgitating tropes that were brand new and exciting back in the 1920’s, I wanted to create stories that were true to the essence of Lovecraft, but were as shocking and unprecedented as Lovecraft’s stories were when they first started to appear in small circulation fanzines and in the pages of Weird Tales." - Alan Moore

"I think that was the idea from the start, to do something that wasn’t really being done. So we have a companion who’s much older than normal – the think I always repeat in interviews like this is that if Alice was being played by a real-world actor, she’d be much older than Matt Smith and there’d automatically be a kind of mitigating of the Doctor’s authority. Alice is someone who won’t take any of the Doctor’s crap – and there is some crap occasionally from him, and I’m glad Clara in the new series isn’t taking it either." - Al Ewing

It was posthumously done, by his great-great-grandson.

It was narrated by that " playboy industrialist " of the same name and heard by the Watcher-stand-in of 2005's series of What If stories, a talented hacker who'd set up his computer to make multiversal TCP/IP connections.

(Presumably, he's either interning for AIM or been interned by ARMOR since.)

The latter'd found the former's work by looking to see if Daredevil was on Earth-717 as he was on 616.

He found that the Devil of Hell's Kitchen apparently wasn't- instead, the Devil Who Dares had definitely been.

He hadn't been Matt Murdock. )
