Script reading services

As a UK script consultant with over twenty years’ experience as a script writer (and credits on all the UK broadcast networks) I get asked to do a lot of script reports for new and less experienced script writers.

You can read about what I offer and the cost of my services on my script report services page but I can say here that my services go beyond the normal ‘bog standard’ script report.

I offer a page by page ‘read analysis’ which pin points problems, weaknesses and basic errors in the three key elements of a screenplay – plot, character and dialogue. Not only do I identify any problems – I’ll give you my suggestions on how to fix these issues and I’ll give you concrete instructions on improving your script to bring it closer to a professional standard.

As a professional writer with credits on EastEnders, Hollyoaks, Emmerdale and some large budget feature films (as a script consultant) you can rely on me for a realistic assessment of the commercial potential of your script.

If you’re serious about giving your screenplay the best chance in a crowded market contact me on I’m happy to chat by either phone or email.
