How daunting a task is it to re-create an established literary or TV hero, and to add something new for today’s audience?

TV comedy writer, producer and performer Charlie Higson published the first in his best-selling Young James Bond series in 2005. Best-known for his hugely successful Artemis Fowl series, Eoin Colfer’s literary re-imagining was in writing an ebook featuring that much-loved timelord, the Doctor. Philip Reeve, award-winning author of the Mortal Engines series, uses his vivid imagination to dive into the making of a myth: Here Lies Arthur. Is imagination all you need to make a hero live again?
