I have been a freelance writer for over twenty years, and am a regular contributor to BBC1's Doctors. I was lead writer on CBBC's Crisis Control and have also worked on Channel Five's Family Affairs. I'm the author of ten novels and audiobooks, and eight non-fiction books, mostly concerning television in general and Doctor Who in particular. I've also written plays, comic strips, short stories and journalism.I am represented by JFL Agency Ltd (scripts) and The Marsh Agency (books). Click on Contact Me for more details. I am a member of the Writers' Guild of Great Britain and BAFTA.
...And I've gone straight into writing another Doctors! This one is called 'The Way of the Warrior'. Probably.
I've finished working on my next episode of Doctors, which is now called 'Embarrassing Bodies'. Filming starts in a week or two.
I'm equally pleased to say that my short story 'The Hairstyle of the Devil', released as part of the forthcoming Thirteen anthology on CD and download by Spokenworld Audio, is read by none other than Arthur Darvill! Stephen Gallagher, Kim Newman, Simon Clark and Mark Morris are among the other authors. Readers include Lalla Ward, Francis Barber, Gemma Arterton and Samuel West. More details here.
I'm pleased to announce that my play 'The Revenant's Carnival' will be issued on CD and download by Big Finish as part of the Bernice Summerfield: Missing Persons boxset in September. Written and recorded last year, it stars Lisa Bowerman, Thomas Grant, David Warwick and Susan Vidler. More details here.

I've just been commissioned to write another episode of Doctors, provisionally entitled 'What She Said'. Hurrah!
A week until my next Doctors episode airs! Directed by the brilliant Baff Akoto, 'Stockholm Syndrome' guest stars Justin Avoth, Keeley Forsyth and Paul Loughran, and as ever is on BBC1/BBC1 HD at 1.45pm on 11 December (repeated on BBC HD later that afternoon, and then on iPlayer for 7 days). This one's like a little episode of Spooks...
My Doctors script has been locked off, and my work is done! I believe a director has been assigned - I'll post casting details or anything else I'm allowed to as and when. I hope you like the end result if you see it in December!
I'm chuffed to say I've been commissioned to write another episode of of Doctors. 'Stockholm Syndrome' will be on your screens in December - now I just need to go and write it.
