RALPH & KATIE lands to fantastic reviews

All at The Agency would like to express their sincere congratulations to all of the team who worked on Ralph & Katie, which aired last night at 9pm on BBC One and is available to watch now on BBC iPlayer. This spin-off of THE A WORD, created, executive produced and written by our amazing client Peter Bowker follows the young couple Ralph and Katie as they experience the domestic challenges faced by all newlyweds, but with the added fact that they have Down’s Syndrome. Agency client Tom Wentworth was part of the writing team on the show, a room completely made up of new and emerging disabled writers, who were chosen in partnership with BBC Writersroom.

A landmark for disabled talent on screen, the show has received fantastic reviews from critics and audiences alike:
