Personal Quote:

So-called reality TV, which dominates British channels, is destroying what made it cherishable to me and lots of others in the first place. I loved Alan Clarke, Ken Loach and Alan Bleasdale's work. In fact the first TV dramas I ever saw were 'Screen Twos' produced by David Thompson, who also produced a lot of Alan Clarke. See more »


The surname change, taking his mother's maiden name, came about because there was already an Aidan Murphy on Equity's books. See more »
