Peter Jukes

Author, screenwriter, playwright, podcaster, campaigner and blogger.


Peter Jukes’ television writing has mainly been in the genre of prime time thrillers or TV detective fiction broadcast by the BBC.¬† He devised and wrote most of the three seasons of the BBC One prime time undercover thriller ‘In Deep’ which starred Nick Berry & Stephen Tompkinson, two 90-minute film length episodes of the BBC One seriesThe Inspector Lynley Mysteries’, and the two-hour first episode of the first season of the Emmy Award-winning ‘Waking the Dead’. He also co-wrote the second series of the paranormal/science thriller¬† ‘Sea of Souls’ which won the 2005 BAFTA Scotland Award for Best Drama and Jukes’ opening episode of the third season of ‘Holby City’ was described by The Guardian¬† as being totally addictive.

More recently Peter successfully crowdfunded his liveblogging of the ‘hacking trial’ and has, over the past year, been responsible for creating the wildly popular podcast series ‘Untold’, which told of the murder of Daniel Morgan which still remains unsolved although it happened over 30 years ago.
