Writersroom interviews TV and film writer, Tim Prager.

Tim Prager (Silent Witness, Dalziel and Pascoe, Dangerfield, The Ambassador & Vendetta) talks to us about his writing process. 

He tells us how writing for TV allows him to talk about issues with a wide audience, shares his favourite piece of dialogue and talks about the importance of keeping a ‘Character catalogue’ when developing characters.
