The start of my screenwriting career

Just found my first 2 episodes of the Bill as a screenwriter on YouTube. From 1998 the half-hour was the very first professional writing gig I ever got. I’d never thought a plumbers son from Coventry like me could ever be a writer so I was/am very proud of this. I have this on my office wall to this day.

The hour long S.A.D was a “Christmas Special” broadcast on New Year’s Eve and is quirky and great fun with the first child birth in the Sunhill cells.

  1. Great stuff Chris. Twenty two years ago. Bet you haven’t looked back or have you missed the Blow Torch and Flux?
    I am still looking out for that lecture on how a production comes about. I mean where and with what does it start and how are the many facets of a production sort of sown together.
    All the best.
