Quotes by Andrew Davies
People in the BBC are always dying to get out of their open-plan offices.— Andrew Davies
I’m absolutely delighted if people think of me as a reliable purveyor of quality period stuff.— Andrew Davies
Novels often have leisurely openings; a TV drama needs an arresting opening.— Andrew Davies
I’d love to adapt more contemporary novels. But there isn’t really enough story and character to make a really satisfying serial, so they tend to be single dramas.— Andrew Davies
From time to time there is a move to do a little less in the way of period dramas, but people rebel. Audiences say we want them. There is a big hunger for them. I don’t think it’s sentimentality or nostalgia, it’s often that they are simply the best stories.— Andrew Davies
