John Fay in the 2010 documentary Coronation Street: 50 Years, 50 Moments

John Fay wrote 79 episodes of Coronation Street between May 2002 and July 2007 including one hour-long episode.

Born in Liverpool, he first began writing plays for local theatre including The Cruel Sea and Eat My Eyes. He next began submitting scripts for Brookside although it took him many years to gain a place on the writing team, eventually producing 54 scripts. As well as Coronation Street, he wrote for Clocking Off, Blue Murder and Robin Hood as well as creating and writing the series Mobile about his hatred of mobile phones. This gained him a commission from Russell T. Davies to write for Torchwood, the Doctor Who spin-off.
