BBC Doctors






So then, I finally landed a gig directing a ‘block’ of 3 episodes of the award winning BBC serial Drama, Doctors. My first three episodes are called ‘Tenderness’, ‘The Collectors’ and ‘A Lighter Note’ which were broadcast in October 2012.


Here’s a taste of my incredible experience.


And they let me back for more…

Working out the back of the camera van – my first scene is complete




That’s me that is





My ‘digs’ – like being a student again

(except with the financial burden)





Hard at work with my

set plans, script and storyboards



Another day, a more cosy base




Time is my friend, not my enemy




Lunch…sort of




Up and down to Birmingham




Another train…another exciting dinner
