Born in the North East of England, Peter read Drama and Theatre Arts at Birmingham University before moving to London to begin an acting career. His work has included roles in FOYLE’S WAR for ITV, TORCHWOOD for the BBC, ROSS at Chichester Festival Theatre and WHEN WE ARE MARRIED at the Garrick Theatre.
After successfully establishing himself in theatre, television and film acting - finding a particular niche in the ‘Wars and Moustaches’ market - Peter began developing work as a writer. His play, LEWIS IN WONDERLAND, played to sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and his comedy mini-series, THE CHARLES DICKENS SHOW was produced by BBC Arts. Peter researched and wrote THE VOICES OF THE SILENT SOLDIERS, a Heritage Lottery-supported commission of sort films telling forgotten stories from the Great War and he has also written a number of corporate films.
Current projects include ICARUS FALLING, a drama series set among First World War flying aces, currently in development with American producer Bob Sallin; MINE, a Northern Drama series recently selected for Filmarket Hub’s Pitchbox 2021 event; RIO FUERTE, a series set in the intrigue, glamour and sweat of Mexico and Hollywood in the 1950s; THE SHANGRI LA, a series set in the London of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s; and LATE RETURN, a three act stage comedy about how a sandwich started World War One.
Peter lives in London, plays a lot of cricket (with no great skill) and retreats to the wildest countryside he can reach at any opportunity.
