Nicola’s radio plays have been produced on BBC Radio 3, Radio 4 and Radio 4 Extra, with The Daily Mail describing her writing as being ‘as taut as the skin of a drum’ (Scorched, Radio 4). Angels in Disguise, her episode of the horror and suspense series ‘The Man in Black’ with Mark Gatiss is regularly repeated on Radio 4 Extra.

Her original TV drama Strawberry Fields about migrant fruit pickers was showcased at BBC TV.

Her work with BOLDtext includes Dark Matters (Selfies); Nothing To Hide (The Russell Brand Effect – The Morning After); The Trip (Sunstroke); Cold Cuts (Doubled Up); No Man’s Land (Eurotrashed); Killing Time (Leap); A Monster in The Room (Behind Bars); and Inspired (Fake Times).
