Bernadette Davis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bernadette Davis is a television screenwriter, who co-wrote the first 2 series of the BBC's sitcom Game On with Andrew Davies.[1][2] She wrote the third series on her own. She was nominated for a BAFTA award for Game On in 1997. Game On was said to be: "a part of a zeitgeist that came to define a generation" and was a "sitcom that was so of its time, that it took its name from a catchphrase of the decade."[3] She studied English and Drama at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Production

In 1996, Davis co-wrote the mini-TV series Wilderness with Andrew Davies, from the novel by Dennis Danvers.[4] She also wrote an episode of Soldier Soldier in 1997, titled "Line of Departure".

She wrote a 6-episode sitcom series called The Wilsons in 2000, which featured David Bradley and Julian Rhind-Tutt, in one of his earliest roles.[5][6]

In 2012, she wrote the BBC Three sitcom series Some Girls.[7] Series 1 aired in November 2012,[8][9][10] and series 2 started airing in September 2013.[11]

Some Girls has been described as: "...a comedy about the kind of girls more usually seen in worrying documentaries about inner city teens. The series centres around a group of 16/17 year old pupils at [a] Comprehensive School in London."[12] Davis herself said about the show: "As far as I know, there aren't any other comedies about girls of this age. Inbetweeners has shown what a rich area for comedy this age group is - but girls are very different and I thought they should have their own show."[13]

Reception

The Daily Mirror made the first episode of Some Girls "Tuesday's must-see TV" and described the show as "Energetic, irreverent and real".[14] The Stage online said: "the relationship between the quartet of friends is well observed and firmly rooted in recognisable, realistic emotions".[15] Comedian Jimmy Mulville, Managing Director of Hat Trick Productions, says: “This second series of Some Girls confirms Bernadette Davis as one of the funniest writers working today. We're lucky to have her.”[11]
