MA TV Fiction Writing professor and alumnus team up for BBC children’s series

Mark Stevenson and Professor Di Mambro

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) lecturer Professor Ann Marie Di Mambro and alumnus Mark Stevenson have teamed up to write a new series of children’s show Eve, which is back on screen on CBBC.

The story of a teenage robot assimilating to family life in suburbia, Eve has returned to the BBC for a third series and Professor Di Mambro was thrilled to reunite with her former student on the award-winning show.

Professor Di Mambro said: “I have never written with a former student of the programme before so it was fantastic to be working on the same show with alumnus Mark as a colleague. It has been wonderful to see his progress as a writer.”

Mark said: “It was surreal to be writing with my former lecturer – she still critiques and marks my episodes! Fingers crossed myself and Ann Marie can stay involved with Eve, it's a cracking show to write for. The MA TV Fiction Writing programme is a wonderful stepping stone into the industry. I wouldn’t be working in TV if it wasn’t for the programme.”

Mark graduated from GCU’s MA TV Fiction Writing programme in 2010 and, as well as Eve, writes for EastEnders, Casualty and River City.
