  • I am in the process of reviewing this nomination. Wasted Time R (talk) 13:18, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Creation versus filing date okay. Article length more than sufficient at 4406 B (730 words) readable prose size. Article sourcing and neutrality okay. QPQ done in resolving a stuck nomination. Image in article has a reasonable fair use rationale. Hook lengths are okay, neutrality and sourcing good. I prefer the first hook, but maybe expand it a bit to something like:
ALT2: ... that the Leeds-based screenwriter Gaby Chiappe worked with the Rape Crisis centre there to develop a storyline about rape that was praised as being powerful without being graphic?
@Kingsif: Overall I liked the article's structure and it's a good contribution. There is however an issue with unattributed quotations. It is not clear who is saying each of the quotations in the article (other than in the side box) – is it Chiappe, or is it some journalist doing a profile of Chiappe? In some cases the article is downright misleading, such as Regarding writing for television, Chiappe has said that she is a slow writer and "has to work all hours to stick to the strict deadlines";[1] That sure sounds like a direct quote from Chiappe, but when you consult the source, it's the Gibraltar Magazine writer's own words of something that Chiappe told him. So I think that all of these unattributed quotations should have clear identification of who is saying them, or they should be reworked as paraphrases without quotation marks.

@Wasted Time R: I can work on the quote attributions, if you want. Also, your ping didn’t work. Kingsif (talk) 12:56, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
@Kingsif: I forget the ping on the first edit then went back and inserted it, but didn't reapply a signature, so maybe that's why it didn't trigger. In any case, yes the quotations should be characterized in-text or changed into paraphrases. Wasted Time R (talk) 01:41, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
@Wasted Time R: That'll be it. Quotations resolved. Kingsif (talk) 01:56, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
