The best-selling author behind The Shining has returned to its central character, 36 years after the book was first published, for his latest novel.

Doctor Sleep begins a year after the events at the end of The Shining, and follows Danny Torrance to adulthood.

He spoke to the BBC's arts editor Will Gompertz about why Jack Torrance is his most autobiographical character and why he hated Stanley Kubrick's film version.
