Matthew’s earliest memory is scribbling a short story (two-or-three lines of illegible handwriting); since then, pen and paper has rarely been out of arm’s reach.
Having written for stage, Matthew has had scripts performed at scratch nights for the Tobacco Factory Theatre, Bike Shed Theatre, Cheltenham Everyman, Genesis Cinema, and Exeter’s Ignite Festival. In 2018, he was Assistant Director on Dramatic Moose’s first production, Abandoned.
Matthew was one of the executive producers on Whovians, writing Geek in Silver (S1, Ep4) and The Parting of the Ways (S2,Ep6), and co-wrote Bradley and the Doctor (S1, Ep5), Behind the Table (S2, Ep1), and the 2016 Christmas special, Two Nights Before Christmas.
Following Whovians, Matthew was back as exec producer on the Christmas pilot for Sketchy AF, writing a number of sketches including Ross Kemp on Christmas and Hazel Reardon: Foul-Mouthed Agony Aunt.
Matthew’s first love is horror films. His short script Hanging Hill Row reached the final ten in 13horror.com’s worldwide short screenplay contest. Hanging Hill Row is now available to buy as an eBook from Amazon.co.uk
