Join Matthew as he discusses his work writing both TV scripts and novels, including the TV phenomenon Keeping Faith.Matthew Hall comes from a colourful family of musicians and writers but in a bid to be the opposite of bohemian and creative he studied law at Worcester College, Oxford.

Soon after, he was commissioned to create an original series for the new Channel Five, Wing And A Prayer. The first season earned him a BAFTA nomination in the best series category. In a screenwriting career lasting over 20 years, Matthew has written over 50 hours of prime time TV drama.His debut novel, The Coroner, was published by Pan Macmillan in the UK in 2009 and was nominated for the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger in the best novel category. His eighth novel, a stand-alone thriller, The Black Art of Killing, was published by Penguin earlier this year.Matthew is a boxing aficionado and the proud loser of one amateur fight.
