Matthew Wakefield

After studying film production at The University of Wales, and making several short films, I gained my first TV commission in 2002.  From 2012 to 2024, I was a core writer for BBC One’s popular and award-winning drama series Doctors, writing 70 episodes in total.  My original work covers a wide range of genres, from dystopian sci-fi to crime drama and a mystery comedy for kids.  I  have an MA in Screenwriting from The London College of Communication, and have taught scriptwriting at Bucks New University.
