Have any Burning Law & Order: UK Questions You Would Like Answered?
Here's the deal. The talented, generous and all around awesome Emilia di Girolamo, writer for Law & Order: UK, has agreed to answer questions about the show. Now, this isn't a 100% done deal since ITV and/or Kudos need to take a look at the questions before signing off on it, but Emilia is fairly confident it won't be a problem. Right now is probably the best window of opportunity for her to spare us some time since production is resuming shortly.

zegeekgirl and I are busy jotting down questions, but we thought we'd open the floor up to all of you as well. We'd hate to have a "D'Oh! Why didn't we think to ask that?" moment. There's just a couple guidelines we ask you to follow. Questions should be about Law & Order: UK, although asking about writing and writing for TV in general I'm sure would be welcome. :) Any questions about the actors should be confined to the characters they portray. Questions about Matt Devlin and Jamie's contribution to the series would be OK, but nothing about him personally. After all, she would just tell us what a swell guy he is and we already know that. ;)

The deadline for submitting questions is Midnight est tomorrow (Tuesday, September 21st). Again, we are on a bit of a tight turnaround because we want to give her as much time as possible to work around her schedule. And non-members of the community are free to participate! If you are posting anonymously just provide your first name or the online name you go by and general location, if you wish.

Are future episodes going to be plots that you and the rest of the creative team come up with or will you continue to adapt old Law and Order plots?

How do you go about adapting a plot from the US, is it just a case of anglicising or are there other techniques you use?

Which episode is your favourite of the current run?

Which character do you like writing for?

- what had been the cast / writers reaction regarding the 1st episode "broken" since it was similar to a real story ?

- is there any others episodes she would have love to write ?

- why do you think make "law & order uk" is that successfull ?

- How do you work with the cast ? Do you make any work meeting and read the script ?

- Are we going to have a Natalie Chandler-centric episode? Everyone else has had or is going to have an episode centring on them, but I'd love to know more about the feisty Mrs Chandler.

- How close are James and Alesha going to get? (Why yes, I do "ship" them - they make a fascinating couple, and Ben and Freema have got great chemistry.)

Here's a few:

1. I second the question about Natalie Chandler. Will we be learning more about her in upcoming episodes? Can Emilia give us a fact or two we don't already know about her?

2. Is it ever difficult in your writing to reconcile the realities of criminal justice with the need to tell a satisfying story?

3. As of 'Alesha', Freema Agyeman's character is a survivor of rape. We've not yet seen much of how she's dealt with that. Is this something the show will be revisiting?

4. What's the best and worst thing about having London as your setting for these characters' stories?

Well, what about the relation between the crew?
How do you become writer for "law and order UK"?

The new Season looks and feels more British, and the actors look comfortable in their roles. Now that the show is moving to BBC America, should we expect changes to the format and story lines to make the show familiar but uniquely British for the American audience?
