Q&A: writing for medical drama

Could you write for continuing medical dramas like Holby City, Casualty or Doctors?

The College of Production teamed up with the BBC Writersroom to live tweet tips from their talk Writing for Medical Drama.

On the panel were writer Lucia Haynes, Holby City series producer Simon Harper, Casualty’s medical advisor Pete Salt and Anne Edyvean, BBC development producer for continuing drama schemes.

“You really have to want to write for the show! Show your passion for the show you're approaching.” – Simon Harper

The talk took place at the University of the Arts London and was a partnership between BBC Writersroom, Drama Centre London and Central Saint Martins' MA in Dramatic Writing.
