about me

Section:Council Member
Job title:Hartswood Films
Summary:Sue Vertue is a Producer and Board Director of Hartswood Films.

Sue began her producing career at Tiger Aspect in 1991 with 'Mr. Bean'.  She feels she may have already peaked with her biggest audience right back then with over 20 million viewers for 'Merry Christmas Mr. Bean'.  She went on to produce Emmy Award winner 'The Vicar of Dibley', 'Hospital' (which was the opening night comedy for Channel 5 and a winner at Banff), and 'The Last Englishman' which was a Bafta nominated single drama starring Jim Broadbent. 

She then had an idea for a flat share between a gay man and a straight girl, got Jonathan Harvey on board and they created 'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme' which was frequently top of the BBC2 ratings and subsequently moved to BBC1.

In 1998 Sue left Tiger Aspect to produce Comic Relief, she then took a few months' maternity leave before she joined Hartswood. She continued to executive produce Gimme with Tiger and for Hartswood also produced four series of 'Coupling' which was created and written by Steven Moffat, her husband. 

Sue has produced several more comedies: 'Fear Stress and Anger', 'Carrie and Barrie', 'The Savages', 'Supernova' and 'The Cup', and has recently helmed the award-winning drama 'Sherlock' for BBC1.
