Learning how to write drama means learning how to cope with meddling. You’ll have to identify the boundary between what it’s reasonable for you to accept (‘We think it might work for us if you relocated it to Wolverhampton) and what you consider unacceptable (‘We think think the whole thing might be improved if your central character was a vampire ‘). You must decide where to draw the line, different people draw the line in different places, but you should know that it’s not a good idea to draw it thickly around your script like some sort of barricade to keep out anyone who attempts to come near.

Co-author Writing for TV and Radio
