Firstly a massive and humble thank you to all those who watched series one of The Indian Doctor. With just under two million viewers and a couple of awards, it far exceeded all our expectations and the reception enabled us to get together to make series two.
I certainly read and appreciated every one...

I was standing on a rooftop in central London on the last day of filming a crucial scene for Sherlock when I got a call offering me the role of production designer on the new series of Upstairs Downstairs BUT - I had to start the following day!
This was my introduction to the rollercoaster ride that...

I could rob a bank. I could rob two banks, if I wanted. But I don't because the risk outweighs the reward. Prison seems grim and I'm not all that bothered about being rich.
I can separate all the men I know into two categories: alphas and betas. Leaders and followers, if you will.

Bailey is short, fierce-eyed and direct: "I just don't want it to be s***!" he says.

Charles Dickens died without finishing The Mystery Of Edwin Drood - in fact, he was only halfway through, leaving all the balls in the air and numerous hints, blind alleys, unrevealed connections and intriguing possibilities on display.
In short, a challenge not to be missed.
So, Gwyneth Hughes, a...

I wanted to play Miss Havisham because she's an iconic character who pervades our world in various forms. So many people have written about her or based other characters on her over many decades.
I was interested in what it was that was so appealing about her, what it is that seems to get under people...

Lapland covers quite touching issues that are affecting the Lewis family - like the loss of their family patriarch - and then my character, the holiday rep Jingle Jill interrupts with quite hilarious material. It's very much a comedy drama.
I remember when I read the script how moving and touching it...

I had 24 hours' notice and I'd missed the first series as I was working when it came out. So I bought the DVD and watched as many episodes as I could in the...

Hello - I'm Helen Raynor. I've worked on established dramas like Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Primeval, but Baker Boys is my first original drama series. We've filmed this blog post to share a bit about the creative process with you.

I'd say that Death In Paradise is a detective series in a familiar style with a contemporary twist provided by its exotic location.
The show is set in the Caribbean on the fictitious island, Saint-Marie (actually Guadeloupe).
There are surprises and mysteries in the storylines, but also clashes...

"I suppose the challenge with Jones The Wife was to try and create something sweet, something truthful, then stick some fake boobs on it and see if the audience still bought it."
