My Friend Walter
Friday, 24th April 1992
My Friend Walter was made into a TV movie in 1992.
Michael has said of the endeavour: 'When Portobello films asked me to write a screenplay of My Friend Walter I thought I'd give it [a] go. It's a story about the ghost of Walter Raleigh returning to haunt the farm he had grown up on in East Budleigh in Devon. The director Gavin Millar and producer Vanessa Lees coached me through, and we got it right in the end.'
