Carl Gorham is best known as the creator, co-writer and producer of the multi award-winning cult animated sitcom 'Stressed Eric' for BBC2. Broadcast in more than 20 countries, it was the first animated comedy series to be shown in primetime on NBC in the USA for 35 years.
He also co-wrote/produced and voice-directed a 52 episode adaptation of the best-selling Meg and Mog books for CITV - 3 of those scripts were published as books. More recently he wrote a pilot for ITV entitled 'Martin' starring Alan Davies and Alison Steadman and a radio series 'The Very Old Pretenders' for BBC Radio 4 starring Rebecca Front and David Haig.
His memoir 'The Owl at The Window' is to be published on Feb 9th 2017 by Hodder and Stoughton. Part love story, part widower's diary, part tales of single parenting, it tells of his wife's cancer, her premature death and his attempts to rebuild his life afterwards with his six year-old daughter. It's a dramatic, moving and funny memoir, a fresh and original study of what it means to lose a partner in your forties, and learn to live again.
Carl lives in North Norfolk with his daughter Romy. He likes modern jazz, mid-century furniture and football. His favourite writer is Patrick Hamilton.
