My Design Decisions

In 2012, 2 years after I designed the first series of Doctor Who featuring Matt Smith I was asked to design a new series called Broadchurch starring David Tennent and Olivia Colman, it was hard to make, emotional and I was completely involved with all the characters.  It was a huge hit, we didn’t know it would be, but I had also said that I would do three series, the trilogy that Chris Chibnall had in his head. In the meantime, I had been making what I would call my social conscience drama. Things like, Silk, Law and Order and Code of a Killer. These dramas deal with controversial things like gang rape, racism, misogyny, false arrest and miscarriages of justice, they deal with human things and reflect the society we live in. I love that. I also kept my hand in with Wizards Vs Aliens, so a little bit of fantasy with green screen and adventurous characters and then returning to do the 10th series of Doctor Who with Peter. I loved every minute of that series and intended to go back and make another series. Straight after the Who Festival I started designing Apple Tree Yard which was another one of my social conscience pieces but this one was based on a best selling novel, I loved it and I felt like I had the best of both worlds.

It was a joy and pleasure to work on and a privilege to be able to say I did the whole thing from the start to the end. I turned down so many other great things in order to complete the story. I’m glad I stuck to my word. I hope you all enjoy the final series when it broadcasts in 2017. It’s brilliant .   And now onto Liar…….brilliant scripts……..
