Matthew Graham

Co-creator, executive producer and writer of Life On Mars, as well as writing credits including Doctor Who, Hustle, and Spooks joined us for Cult TV in 2007, and is back for the brand new Cineology 2010 ...

 

Matthew Graham is the co-creator, executive producer and one of the writers of the BBC - Kudos Film and Television series Life on Mars.

He began his writing career with the children's drama Byker Grove and moved on to EastEnders. In the 1990s he wrote episodes of This Life, and created and wrote the post-apocalypse drama The Last Train for ITV. He has also written episodes of Spooks, Hustle, Thief Takers, and City Central, as well as “Fear Her”, an episode from the 2006 series of Doctor Who.

Matthew started writing at a very young age. He was sending scripts out to directors and producers when just 15 years old, and met a lot of famous directors including Terry Gilliam and Hugh Hudson. He was just 19 when he got himself an agent, but it took until he was 21 to get his first paid-for commission - writing for Byker Grove, where his age was an obvious advantage, as he wasn’t far out of his teens at the time.

In December 2006, the BBC commissioned a Life on Mars follow-on series, Ashes to Ashes, again named after a David Bowie track. The series picks up the life of DCI Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) from Life On Mars, but it's no longer be set in 1973 – they are now in the 1980s, with fashions and music to match.

In partnership with Ashley Pharoah, Matthew also developed two other dramas. Under their newly formed independent production company Monastic Productions, the duo teamed up with Mammoth Screen to develop a drama for BBC One that took place in the world of archaeology, Bonekickers.

They are also developing a legal drama provisionally titled Eternal Law for ITV1, although this has not yet been fully commissioned.

We were delighted that Matthew agreed to join us once more, for the CINEOLOGY 2010 TV Festival Weekender, this September at the Pontin's Pakefield Resort, Lowestoft (subject to work commitments).
