I joined Thomas and Friends as script editor/head writer on an eight week contract and ended up staying for three years, countless episodes, and one Bafta nomination.
Despite the two hour drive to Shepperton, I learned to love the modified world on the Island of Sodor, where no-one was terrified or furious, they were scared or cross, or, if pushed very cross.
This is one of my favourite Percy eps (my favourite engine) and includes a genuine, paid-up joke for three-year-olds. I’m still proud.
