Reviews of Red Rock
Irish Times: “Red Rock is fast-paced and looks great, with top-notch acting from a huge cast, Everyone seems to be sleeping, fighting or working with each other, or in some cases all three, as it should be in soapland. There’s melodrama with the two warring families, balanced by a comic thread. Red Rock is very good; let’s hope it catches on.”
Sunday Times: “With its love triangles and hate spirals, tangled webs and twisted mindsets, Red Rock has the geometry of a classic soap.There is a much to like about Red Rock. These episodes were well-written and pacily directed. The tricky chores of plot-exposition and character-introduction were handled with dexterity and wit.”
Daily Mail: “A thumping good plot.”
John is currently working as temporary Executive Consultant on the BBC’s flagship soap opera EastEnders. He was drafted in to revive the soap after years of tumbling ratings and criticism of dull storylines, and will remained part-time in the role until February 2019.
