We the undersigned request that Paul Marquess, Brian Park, Mal Young, Sharon Bloom, Yvon Grace, Jane McNaught, Tony Wood, Kieran Roberts, Steve Frost, Kathleen Beedles, Louise Berridge, Kathleen Hutchison, Kate Harwood and all the rest of the useless producers and scriptwriters (excluding Julian Roach and John Stevenson) who have been in charge of all the soaps and certain drama series in the last ten years are sacked immediately. In replacement of this lot, the proper, professional, serious producers and scriptwriters who produced and wrote for television programmes in the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's should be reinstated (those who are still alive and well of course).

What can you say about todays bosses. In general they wouldn't know a good actor or actress, a good script or a good programme if they fell over one. The quality of our soaps and drama series have gone completely downhill in the last ten years and the only solution to improving them is to bring back the proper, professional, serious producers and scriptwriters from the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's, as otherwise we are not going to go forward in the right direction. There needs to be a big clear out here, the biggest bloodbath if there ever was one. Paul Marquess, Brian Park, Mal Young, Sharon Bloom, Yvon Grace, Jane McNaught, Tony Wood, Kieran Roberts, Steve Frost, Kathleen Beedles, Louise Berridge, Kathleen Hutchison and Kate Harwood are just a few examples of producers who have played a part in the undoing of British Television in the last ten years. Brian Park was responsible for 1) changing Coronation Street and modernising it and 2) destroying Family Affairs completely, by killing off the entire original family the Hart's in a boat explosion. Mal Young is another smarmy bastard whose main concern is launching drama series and putting an ex Eastender actor or actress in the lead role every time. On all occasions each drama series has flopped altogether basically because Eastenders actors and actresses cannot act at all and just place whatever character they played in Eastenders in the drama series. Sharon Bloom was responsible for axing Jill in the second version of Crossroads which incidentally killed the show. Yvon Grace is another waste of space. She was responsible for the third version of Crossroads, the glitzy glamorous version which was absolutely diabolical. All Yvon had been was a bloody judge on the reality show Soapstars and then all of a sudden gets a top job as an Executive Producer on a soap opera, its just not on. Tony Wood did nothing but over sensationalise whilst he was in charge of Coronation Street - the Killer Katy storyline and Mad Maya week are just two examples and Tony was also responsible for the ridiculous Charlie/Shelley storyline. Steve Frost axed long standing favourite Kathy Bates/Merrick/Tate from Emmerdale and brought new characters in who are no good whatsoever and turned the show into a complete pantomime and neither is Kathleen Beedles much better because Emmerdale is still a pantomime under her as well. Steve Frost is now in charge of Coronation Street and he has done the same to that as he did when he was in charge of Emmerdale, turned it into a pantomime. Louise Berridge, Kathleen Hutchison and Kate Harwood had/have got no idea how to repair Eastenders, but there again it wouldn't matter who is put in charge of Eastenders because it has always been and always will be a rubbish soap. Lastly and worst of all, Paul the prick Marquess, who is without doubt the worst Executive Producer in the history of British Television. He was responsible for putting Brookside in the knackers yard altogether and also destroying The Bill. Incidentally, I have written a separate petition altogether regarding Paul Marquess because he is my number one pet hate at this moment in time and I want something doing about him once and for all. On the otherhand, Julian Roach and John Stevenson need to be excluded from the clearout because they have been writing the scripts for Coronation Steet for as long as I can remember. Julian and John are two of Coronation Street's finest writers and at this moment in time are just having trouble of maintaining the quality of Coronation Street that's all because of churning out five episodes a week. If Julian and John only had two episodes to write the quality would be much better. Harry Kershaw the one time Executive Producer of Coronation Street will be turning in his bloody grave if he could see what these idiots have done to Coronation Street and television in general. Harry would be disgusted with the direction his beloved soap has taken.

However on a better note, there are some current producers and scriptwriters who can be excluded from the axe as it is not necessary to sack them at all. This applies to the people in charge of the following drama series - Heartbeat (Keith Richardson), The Royal (Keith Richardson), A Touch of Frost (David Reynolds), Midsomer Murders (Brian True May), Foyle's War (Jill Green), and New Tricks. The bosses who are currently in charge of these six drama series are great bosses and the writing is of a very high standard, they do an excellent job. You'll probably find though that the current producers in charge of these six drama series are the same producers still producing them since the day they started, this is why they are still quality programmes. With regards to all the other current producers and scriptwriters in charge of all the other drama series on television, as I have already said, they all want sacking. Most of todays drama series are axed after Series 2, some don't even get a second chance they are axed outright after Series 1 and if they are very lucky they get a third series, but no more than three. In the last ten years, drama series have been pretty poor and this is due to the fact that the people in charge of them do not have a bloody clue what they are doing.
