BBC Writers' Room

I must be a proper writer now, because the BBC have just uploaded one of my Doctors scripts (and three others) to The Script Library at The Writers' Room. Very chuffed.
If you have any interest in TV screenwriting, then the Writers' Room and its Script Library are pretty amazing resources. Scripts for all the best BBC telly (not just Doctors!). Worth a peek.

Warts and All

Copyright BBC

It's the first day of the Minor Surgery Unit, and Heston is very excited. Meanwhile, Ruhma takes Shak off to university, and Karen continues to look for James.

Don't let anyone tell you there's never any proper medicine in an episode of Doctors. Actual ingrowing toenails in this one. You have been warned.

BBC1, Monday 1 October. 13:45. And iPlayer thereafter.

Stepping Up

Copyright BBC

Penny takes the boys out for a drink, Alia has Tarks over for tea and Daniel attempts to celebrate with Zara. Sid's blind date takes an unexpected turn.


I had a tooth taken out on Friday, and spent the rest of the day a bit muzzy, so I forgot to tell anyone about this episode of Doctors. Still there on iPlayer, if you're interested.

In other news, I spent a day in the Midlands, watching them shoot an episode coming up in November in which something very exciting happens. Wish I could tell you more...

A Friend in Need

Copyright BBC

Ayesha gets entangled in a damaged relationship between two neighbours. Mrs Tembe sets a task to the staff, and Karen tries to get through to James.

This very afternoon.

On BBC1 at 13:45, and for a month thereafter on iPlayer.

My grandmother, Philly, had one of these community alarms, and they're great. Nothing like this ever happened to her, thankfully, but I think they're a great idea,and it was thinking of her that inspired the story. She'd have been 100 last month.

All Over Again

It's the day of the photos, and Ruhma isn't in the best of moods. Ayesha tries to deal with the past by visiting the police station - but will it help?

Tomorrow, Friday 2 March.  BBC1.  13:45.

I actually went up to Birmingham to watch this one being filmed. Had a great day, and don't know why I've never done it before. So, looking forward to seeing it on screen.
