#Scriptchat Topic
EURO: Guest Robert Thorogood @robthor, creator and writer of DEATH IN PARADISE 
USA: Guest Chris Sparling @chrissparling, screenwriter of BURIED 

Whenever we can speak directly to industry professionals, we learn on a totally different level. Whether it’s picking their brain about craft or business, there’s nothing like the energy of a writer who has walked the walk. We are eternally grateful to Robert and Chris for sharing their process and journey with us this week. Transcripts like this are gold. Enjoy! @jeannevb

@teenierussell: @robthor I'll kick off with a 1st question - how long for have you been writing #scriptchat

@TaroJ: #scriptchat hi everyone thanks for joining us @robthor
November 20, 2011, 8:02 pm           



 
@robthor: @teenierussell I realised the other day that I wrote a shortened version of the Holcroft Covenant by Ludlum when I was 10? #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:03 pm           



 
@SoozeJones: @robinkelly1 Thanks for the top tips. I'm going to need some. #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:03 pm           



 
@robthor: @teenierussell I always wrote at Uni - comedy sketches - but it took *years* afterwards for me to have the courage to do drama #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:03 pm           



 
@antonsays: @robthor I LOVE this show. Such a fantastic setting and story. How long did the episodes take to write, on average? #Scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:03 pm           



 
@robthor: I tried to become a professional writer in about 1998 - sold my first script for proper (with a friend) in 2000 #scriptchat

@teenierussell: @robthor so a very young starter! #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:04 pm           



 
@SohoGuy: @robthor @teenierussell What was the point where you went "Sod this, I'm writing this thing" and then did it? #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:04 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat not surprised at all you did comedy, some lovely funny moments in death in paradise
November 20, 2011, 8:04 pm           



 
@robthor: @antonsays V kind. For me, Ep1 6 mths, Ep2 & 3, 3mths each? - ep6, 6 weeks, ep8 was 2 weeks. #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:04 pm

@antonsays: @teenierussell @robthor #Scriptchat how do manage to balance the comedy with the drama so well?
November 20, 2011, 8:05 pm           



 
@rosieclaverton: @robthor Do you find comedy comes easier to you than drama? #scriptchat

@SohoGuy: @robthor Hey, with Death in Paradise? From the point you had the twinkle of the idea to actually sitting there writing it? #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:06 pm           



 
@robthor: @antonsays Tone tone tone - always trying to be truthful and letting the odd characters be funny and not me. Not always achieved #scriptchat

@robthor: @rosieclaverton Rather feeble answer, but Comedy and Drama are the same thing, it depends on your cast of characters, that's all #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:07 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @robthor ...full plot before you start the script (including ident of killers) or do you sometimes just go with the flow? #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:07 pm           



 
@robthor: @SohoGuy Had the idea on April 18th 2007 - didn't get to write a script until I was commed by the BBC in 2009? #scriptchat

@robthor: @sohoguy I would have specced it, but it is so HARD to do a murder mystery, I couldn't even begin until I was commed #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:09 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat How much did your characters evolve once the cast and crew were onboard, what did Ben Miller bring to the role that surprised u
November 20, 2011, 8:09 pm           



 
@SohoGuy: @robthor Oh interesting, so you just went in with a treatment rather than a pilot script or first 10 pages? #scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:10 pm           



 
@antonsays: @robthor the biggest prob with sitcoms and comedy drama. How to balance the 2. Let alone a murder mystery. What inspired you? #Scriptchat
November 20, 2011, 8:10 pm           



 
@dodgyjammer: @robthor did DeathInParadise change much between the BBC accepting it and then producing it? Are the characters still the same? #scriptchat

@robthor: @SiFoulaReel (Ideally) start with a controlling idea - the murderee is displayed as a skeleton! - and then EVERYTHING from that #scriptchat
