From Netflix to Hollywood, crime dramas now rule the roost. Four authors discuss the process of going from page to screen and bringing their literary creations to life.

Imran Mahmood’s ground-breaking novel You Don’t Know Me was adapted into a highly successful BBC1 series and he has since been commissioned to write three screenplays. AA Dhand is working with a UK broadcaster to bring the six novels in his acclaimed DI Harry Virdee series to TV. Louise Doughty is the author of Apple Tree Yard which was made into a major BBC series, and her novel Platform Seven has been filmed for ITVX. Mick Herron’s outstanding Slough House series has been dramatised in a big budget Apple TV series starring Oscar-winner Gary Oldman. Serial bestseller Chris Brookmyre will direct.
