Emma Frost and Matthew Graham at RTS Devon and Cornwall

The two showrunners talked about their work, from writing episodes of UK soap staples EastEnders and Casualty to the development of hit dramas This Life and Life on Mars, to their contribution to established shows Doctor Who and Shameless.

They described television as being a writer’s medium and how their writing credits for US multinationals opened the door to their current roles as producers.
