He trained in repertory theatre at Northampton and Harrogate before making his West End début in 'A Touch of Spring' by Sam Taylor.

As a TV writer his scripts include 'Little Sir Nicholas,' 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' (winner of an International Emmy, 1995) and 'The Prince and the Pauper' (nominated for a Bafta, 1997) which he also produced. His screenplay début for the big screen was 'Gosford Park' directed by Robert Altman, which won a plethora of prizes, not least the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. He has also worked on a new version of 'Vanity Fair' with Reese Witherspoon and wrote the book for a new stage musical of 'Mary Poppins' for Cameron Mackintosh/ Disney in 2004.  His adaptation of Nigel Balchin's 'A Way Through the Wood', which he also directed was released in 2004, starring Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson and Rupert Everett.
