The last episode of this season's Love/Hate screens tonight. Most of its success comes from its talented writer Stuart Carolan – and the courage of those who backed him.

The last title that Carolan would want to claim is that of national treasure. But he cannot avoid the title of television treasure. Because he is not just one of the most talented TV writers in the world, he is by far the most productive.

As a sometime screenwriter myself, I keep a sharp and envious eye on the fortunes of fellow members of the Writers Guild of America. So I know who is writing successful series like The Wire and Breaking Bad. And I know how Carolan compares with them.
