My second attempt at a Vera episode, Tuesday’s Child, is being repeated on ITV on Friday 7th August. I hope you enjoy it. I like how it all turned out. In France, the episode is called “L’homme des cavernes”, which coincidentally is also the name of my favourite aftershave.
I wrote episode 5 of the third series of GOOD KARMA HOSPITAL for Tiger Aspect and ITV. Really enjoyed working on the show. Alas, I didn’t get to visit the Sri Lanka set, but they did send me some nice photos of the beach. The team behind the show were brilliant. The episode takes place during Diwali and features deaf teenagers who turn up at the Good Karma Hospital, but as always, everything is not as it first appears. Hope you enjoy!

Well, this is some exciting news. As production has now wrapped, I’m allowed to let the cat out of the bag. For the last few months, I’ve been locked in the shed scripting the six-part adaptation of Lynda LaPlante’s bestseller “Tennison” for ITV. An amazing cast includes Stefanie Martini, Sam Reid, Alun Armstrong, Blake Harrison and Ruth Sheen. It is the prequel to Prime Suspect. Set in 1973, it follows Jane Tennison in her first year as a WPC. On your telly boxes some time in 2017…
Men With Ven are a brilliant band based in Whitstable who, aware that I am a man who spends half his life sitting in a shed, asked me to come up with some lyrics for their song “Down The Shed”. I was bloody chuffed that they actually used some of them – and gave me a co-writer credit to boot. No sign of a royalty cheque yet, though. They assure me it’s in the post.
Here’s the video! My shed features in it, of course.
