Writersroom interviews playwright and screenwriter, Peter Bowker (Blackpool, Flesh and Blood, Occupation, Desperate Romantics).
Peter Bowker talks to us about how he develops his characters – and why it’s essential for a writer to know what they’d say in any circumstances. He talks about the impact Dennis Potter’s Pennies from Heaven had on him as a writer - and the role that TV drama can play in affecting the cultural mood.
Peter shares the best piece of advice he’s been given and his tips on finding your voice as writer - and confesses to a predilection for writing dramas about men having a crisis in masculinity.
