'offers valuable professional development insight for all writers, established or just starting out.' Writers Forum (March 2011) 'Every aspiring writer needs a Calling Card Script and Paul Ashton's excellent book will help them acquire one. Just add talent.' Ashley Pharoah, Writer and Creator (Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Wild at Heart, Case Histories) June 2011 'Marvellous. Wears its references lightly ...key shows like Being Human and Life On Mars are laced through the book as examples of how these shows can answer a variety of questions. The examples are clear, and the book is a positive examination about how good work is made and lessons to be learnt from this good work. It's clear, precise and inspirational...I wish I'd read it ten years ago.' Jack Thorne, Writer (Skins, Cast-Offs, This Is England '86, Shameless) June 2011
