Who is Sue Vertue?

Sue Vertue is a British television producer, mainly of comedy shows, including Mr. Bean and Coupling.

Vertue worked for Tiger Aspect, a production company run by Peter Bennett-Jones, where she produced episodes of Mr. Bean, The Vicar of Dibley and Gimme Gimme Gimme.

Vertue met writer Steven Moffat at the Edinburgh Television Festival in 1996. A relationship blossomed and they left their respective production companies to join Hartswood Films, run by Beryl Vertue, Sue's mother. When Vertue asked Moffat to write a sitcom for Hartswood, he decided to base it around the evolution of their own relationship. The series became Coupling, which was first broadcast on BBC2 in 2000. The main two characters in the show were even named Steve and Susan, played by Jack Davenport and Sarah Alexander.

In 1999 Vertue produced Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death, a four-episode special of Doctor Who, written by Steven Moffat, for the Red Nose Day charity telethon.

Her other work includes Carrie and Barry, Supernova, Fear, Stress & Anger, The Cup and Sherlock.
