Sue Vertue

Sue began her producing career at Tiger Aspect in 1991 with 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, 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, brought Jonathan Harvey on board and created Gimme, Gimme, Gimme which was frequently top of the BBC Two ratings.

In 1998 Sue left Tiger Aspect to produce Comic Relief, and then joined Hartswood Films. She produced all four series of the very popular Coupling which was created and written by Steven Moffat, her husband. Sue has produced several more comedies – Fear, Stress & Anger, Carrie & Barry, The Savages, Supernova and The Cup.

Sue is the Series Producer for the multi-award-winning hit drama Sherlock for BBC One co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Sherlock Series 3 was filmed in 2013 and the much anticipated first of the three 90′ episodes aired in the UK on New Year’s Day 2014, the highest-rated drama over the Christmas period, with the biggest consolidated increase ever in the UK. Sue then produced a one-off 90′ Sherlock Special in 2015 which aired on New Year’s Day 2016 simultaneously on television and cinema in key territories across the world including China. She is currently shooting a further three 90′ episodes for Sherlock Series 4. Sue is on the PACT Council and is also a Board Member of the National Film and Television School.
