Hello and thanks for visiting my website.

My name is Matthew Cooper and I’ve been a script writer for hire, UK script consultant and Script Doctor for over 20 years.

I’ve written award winning short films (starring Ewan McGregor amongst others) and award winning screenplays. I’ve also written hundreds of hours of broadcast television for the BBC, ITV, CH4 and Channel Five here in the UK.
