Charlot speaks with writer Jeff Povey
When I worked for BBC Drama, I was lucky enough to meet and work with Jeff Povey while doing a stint at EastEnders. He was one of my favourite writers there because he could inject not only drama but humour in equal measure... no mean feat.
I am very glad to introduce you to Jeff, as not only is he both a funny and intelligent man, he is an extremely talented writer. Over the years, I've watched a number of TV shows and thought how good the writing, and then blow me down looked at the credits and seen Jeff's written the script. He's written hundreds of hours of television, including episodes of Minder, Grange Hill, Wire in the Blood, Wild at Heart, Casualty, Holby City, EastEnders, Hooten and the Lady, The Muskateers, Silent Witness, Kingdom, Midsomer Murders and much more. But, Jeff doesn't only write for television. He's also an accomplished novelist, screenwriter and director. Welcome, Jeff..
