Look, I really don't need the competition. There are hundreds of ex-Bill writers out there stealing commissions from under my nose, and the last thing hard-working, talented writers (like myself) need right now is another bunch of BBC Writers' Academy graduates elbowing their way into all the best writing jobs.
But, seeing as how the application forms are out now, I might as well point people in the right direction. It's going to happen anyway. And, maybe, when one of the new intake rises to the dizzy heights of Consulting Producer / Lead Writer on EastEnders, he or she will remember who showed them where the application form could be found.
