‘Kat Martin has a really fresh, funny and grounded voice. Full of heart and exactly the sort of writer that is missing from the current TV drama scene.’

- Jemma Rodgers, Red Productions (Happy Valley, Years and Years)

 

‘She has a real warmth and energy to her that I find inspiring. I’m excited by the way she talks about infusing her work with her own experiences. She has a really clear voice and her passion for writing comes through on the page. She’s the real McCoy’

- Kay Mellor, Rollem Productions (The Syndicate, A Passionate Woman, Band of Gold)
