Shoreline of Infinity Event Horizon – Thursday 8th November 2018

Cops and Monsters!

James T Harding (writer) and Fraser Coull (producer) in conversation.

Cops and Monsters is Scottish supernatural police procedural. The crowdfunded web series was created by writer-director Fraser Coull in 2014, and released six episodes in season one, raising £15,000 and attracting guest stars like Sophie Aldred from Doctor Who alongside leads Ellen Patterson, Innes Anderson, and Scottish stand-up stalwart Billy Kirkwood.

Its YouTube success attracted the attention of distributors, and the show is now exclusive to Amazon Prime.

The first episode of the second series will be released on October 31st, written by Debbie Moon, the BAFTA award-winning creator of Wolfblood. The remaining five episodes have been written following a callout through the BBC Writersroom, and will be crowdfunded and filmed over the next two years.

Writers who have contributed to the show include Roland Moore (Land Girls), Philip Laurence (Big Finish), Laura Anderson (Ooglies), and Simon Underwood (Woolfblood).

Fraser Coull is the showrunner of Cops and Monsters. Previous independent projects include Night is Day, Bottle, and One Year Later. A freelance runner, director and camera operator, he has contributed to many  BBC Scotland shows.

James T. Harding is the script editor of Cops and Monsters and wrote the episodes ‘Revolution in a Teacup’ (guest starring Sophie Aldred) and ‘How to Fake Your Own Death’. He has developed SFF TV and radio projects with BBC Writersroom, BBC Scotland, and Radio Scotland, and is currently teaching creative writing at Edinburgh City Council while working on the inevitable novel.
