It's official: My first TV drama commission

Just a quick note to explain why I won't be blogging much for the next few weeks: I've been commissioned to write an episode of Doctors, due for broadcast on BBC1 next February. This is the culmination of much work, persistence and patience. Of course, I've only just signed the contract, still have several drafts ahead of me and can't say anything more yet. But I wanted to share the moment with you. Now, as ever - onwards!
