Geoff the Jedi – new BBC soap

27th May 2013

Not one to turn down a challenge, I was tasked with re-writing the entire Star Wars saga as a soap – featuring as many car crashes, affairs and explosions as possible.

I brought one thing to the table that George Lucas could not quite muster with the prequels – creativity.

The creative genius himself

Geoff the Jedi is the protagonist of this gritty East End drama, also featuring Mark and Anna – classic Jedi names. Listen to arguments, pub brawls, pregnancy and explosions, all within ninety seconds. Why waste months of television time when you can do it in just over a minute?
