Linda Duncan McLaughlin

Linda has been writing for BBC Scotland’s flagship drama RIVER CITY since 2020 and has quickly racked up an impressive roster of work on the show; her debut episode was nominated for a TV Foundation’s New Voices Award at the Edinburgh Film & TV Festival. She has also recently written sketches for The Comedy Unit’s new show, STEVENS & MCCARTHY. Further work includes BBC Children’s Digital Learning TIME FOR A STORY series, BBC Alba’s FUNC, and storywriting for WATERLOO ROAD. She was also one of BBC Writersroom’s Scottish Voices for 2020-21. Current TV projects include an adaptation of her own award-nominated novel ORIGINAL SINS, the pilot episode of which was selected for Special Mention at last year’s Edinburgh Film & TV Festival and shortlisted for the UK TV Drama Writing programme. As well as writing for television, Linda has written extensively for the stage – her play DESCENT toured in 2017, garnering a nomination for a Critics’ Award for Theatre (CATS) for Best New Play, and winning a Spirit of the Fringe Award. Other produced work includes MACPHERSON’S RANT (Byre Theatre) and TAKE ME IF YOU NEED ME (Glasgow’s Oran Mor), and she’s currently working on a contemporary adaptation of THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR.
