Bernadette Davis is a television screenwriter, who co-wrote the first 2 series of the BBC's sitcom Game On with Andrew Davies. She wrote the third series on her own. She was nominated for a BAFTA award for Game On in 1997. Game On was said to be: "a part of a zeitgeist that came to define a generation" and was a "sitcom that was so of its time, that it took its name from a catchphrase of the decade." She studied English and Drama at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
Some Girls has been described as: "...a comedy about the kind of girls more usually seen in worrying documentaries about inner city teens. The series centres around a group of 16/17 year old pupils at [a] Comprehensive School in London." Davis herself said about the show: "As far as I know, there aren't any other comedies about girls of this age. Inbetweeners has shown what a rich area for comedy this age group is - but girls are very different and I thought they should have their own show."
The Daily Mirror made the first episode of Some Girls "Tuesday's must-see TV" and described the show as "Energetic, irreverent and real". The Stage online said: "the relationship between the quartet of friends is well observed and firmly rooted in recognisable, realistic emotions". Comedian Jimmy Mulville, Managing Director of Hat Trick Productions, says: “This second series of Some Girls confirms Bernadette Davis as one of the funniest writers working today. We're lucky to have her.”
