About me

Hello! I'm a British screenwriter for television and film. I wrote the movies Severance, Cockneys Vs Zombies, Tower Block, and episodes of Doctor Who, Torchwood, Spooks, Primeval, Crusoe, Spooks: Code 9, The Sparticle Mystery, Crossing Lines, and Eve. For a full list of things I've worked on, check out my Credits page, or watch my writing showreel and directing showreel.

If you want to get in touch about writing or directing work, either contact me directly or my agent (details on the Contact page). If you'd like me to be a guest at your event, do panels, Q&As, talks, speak at your school, etc, contact me directly. I've done a lot of conventions, seminars, and so on, so I'm up for any kind of event.

This is my blog, where I talk about the writing process, upcoming projects, things I'm working on, and any random nonsense that may spring to mind. Yes, comments are switched off, but may occasionally go back on if a particular post requires it. Sometimes I post regularly, sometimes not regularly, sometimes very very not regularly, your mileage may vary, if not satisfied then please see the manager for a full refund.

Any content generated by me belongs to me, but you are free to quote, share and copy it, or do cool creative things with it, as long as it's non-commercial, you send me a link, and fully credit me as the source with my name, blog title, and link to the original post(s). If you want that in fancy terms, here you go:
