The third run of BBC Birmingham's popular and critically acclaimed daytime drama series WPC56 was repeated on BBC1 in March 2016 to the delight of its strong and appreciative audience.  Ray's two episodes for Series 3 were Walk the Line (Episode 2) and The Wayward Wind (Episode 4), with the former nominated as Best Drama in the RTS Midlands Awards (November 2015), one of three nominations for the series, including Claudia Jessie the new series lead nominated as Best Newcomer. This follows a Best Actor nomination in the 2014 RTS Midlands Awards for Charlie De'ath for his performance in Ray's Series 2 script That Old Devil Called Love

Ray's wider development slate includes an original 3-parter for television SAFETY PIN THROUGH MY HEART set in a South Coast resort at the time of the Queen's Silver Jubilee and a sassy feature film comedy GRANNY SMITH with producers Carol Harding and Natasha Carlish / Vicarious Dreams. 

Ray also continues as a senior writer on the BBC's flagship daytime soap DOCTORS and has written over 90 episodes for this popular series, now in production with its nineteenth run.  These range from comedy to adrenalin-fused to heartwarming.  Several have been award-nominated including STRANGE LITTLE GIRL (Mental Health Awards nomination, 2009). 

Other television series writing includes CASUALTY, EASTENDERS, THE BILL and BBC Scotland's RIVER CITY and original work for television BABY BOOM (BBC's DIRECTOR'S DEBUT series, 2007), with director Sarah Parish bringing out the larkiness as well as the compassion in Ray's script.
