Script Readers UK–the best UK script reading and script coverage service

As one of the foremost script consultant’s in the UK in the UK my services are always heavily in demand, this might be for an original script, script editing or a rewrite on someone else’s work, or suggestions on how to fix a screenplay that isn’t working.  This work can come from producers in the UK (and across the world) or from writers / directors themselves.

One of the services that I offer to anyone is script reading or script coverage. For a low start fee, you can get direct feedback from a BAFTA shortlisted screenwriter with over 20 years’ professional experience.

Over the years, I’ve seen the rise of online script readers offering anonymous script coverage, which is often of low quality – how can they judge your script – if you don’t know the professional experience of the person reading the material? The mind boggles that these companies even exist – offering anonymous advice, without qualification.

My script reports are (I’m told) some of the most detailed on the market (often over 20 pages of notes, feedback and ideas for a feature length script) and I don’t charge an arm or a leg for the service either, and if requested I can often give further advice via email after the writer has read and absorbed the report. 

Get in touch with me on for a chat about my script reading service. Prices are below, and turnaround is usually about two weeks or less. Whatever you do, make sure you know who’s reading your script – because anyone can give advice, but when it comes to script reports, you want to make sure the person knows what they’re talking about.

Prices are:

  • Short film script report £50
  • TV drama up to one hour script report £80
  • Feature film script report £120
