By October 26, 2018Uncategorized

Are you a Midlands creative interested in working in Drama? Perhaps you are curious to know more about a genre you don’t work in? Or you want the opportunity to meet like-minded women working in the industry? Then this is the event for you. Come along and meet the women behind the scenes and on the screen of BBC Daytime’s phenomenally successful Doctors drama series.

Doctors is the award-winning daytime drama set in a busy Midlands practice following the turbulent lives and loves of the staff and patients. Traditional medical and crime stories plus hard-hitting story lines combined with light moments filled with jokes and laughter has proved a winning formula.

The Women in Daytime Drama event is a unique opportunity to meet the women behind the scenes and on the screen who play a vital role in producing two and a half hours of great drama a week. Find out from award winning writers, script editors and producers how they work to tight deadlines and demanding budgets and hear from the actors the challenges and joys of daytime drama.

Speakers include: Award-winning writer Claire Bennett, script editor Nasreen Ahmed, producer Caroline Slater and actor Dido Miles, who plays Dr Emma Reid.
