Known as a champion of new talent, Doctors is where many new writers get that crucial first television credit. The Doctors production team produces hundreds of hours of television a year, and is the ideal place for a writer to learn the ropes in a supportive environment whilst maintaining artistic freedom.
So, how does a doctors script get commissioned, written and produced? How important is the relationship between writer and script editor? What happens when your script gets to set and the dialogue is DOA?
The London Screenwriters’ Festival presents our FIRST EVER Script to Screen for television. Discover the secrets of creating continuing drama with veteran Doctors Script Editor Jamie Hewitt, and Writer’s Academy Alumni Paul Campbell who has written for all four continuing drama programmes at the BBC. Join us as we take you from diagnosis to discharge in this eye-opening session!
