He went on to create and write three sitcoms: Coupling, Chalk and Joking Apart. Other credits include his series Jekyll and the feature film Tintin (directed by Steven Spielberg).

Among his many awards, Steven has garnered three BAFTAs: for his Doctor Who episode ‘Blink’ in 2008, for Sherlock (‘His Last Vow’) in 2012 and the BAFTA Special Award in 2012.
