About Paul Tomalin

Paul’s passion lies in bold, smart, confident storytelling with biting wit and big-hearted characters. He cut his teeth on Russell T Davies’ TORCHWOOD and Paul Abbott’s SHAMELESS. He then worked on Paul Abbott’s RTS award winning Channel 4 police-procedural dramedy NO OFFENCE, becoming lead writer on series 3. Paul has also written several episodes for Sean Bean hit gothic sci-fi horror show The Frankenstein Chronicles.

In 2023 Paul created, wrote and Executive Produced the CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED global number 1 Netflix hit BODIES. A graphic novel adaptation starring Stephen Graham, BODIES is a mind-bending sci-fi police procedural and was one of the most watched and talked about British shows of the year. A die-hard cinephile, Paul has several original concepts and adaptations currently in the works in both TV and film.
