Stand-up comedian Isobel 'Isy' Suttie is no stranger to TV comedy. In fact, you'll probably recognise her as Dobby from Channel 4's smash hit Peep Show. More recently she's been spotted in Shameless playing Esther Blanco, a woman with a husband on the inside for fraud, and several unruly kids to look after.

Isy's latest role takes her rather far from the grim Chatsworth Estate though. As part of Sky Living's new Love Matters comedy series, she's penned a brand new 30 minute delight by the name of Miss Wright. It tells the tale of a singing waitress who has fallen hopelessly in love with the ticket inspector at the railway station she works in. Isy's on board as the title character, while Alex Carter of Hollyoaks fame plays Jim, the object of her affections.

We caught up with her ahead of the show's debut on Sky Living tonight, to find out a little bit more about Miss Wright, and the woman who created her...

Isy Suttie, we're huge fans of your work here at so we were delighted to hear we'd be seeing more of you on screen. What was it about Love Matters that appealed to you?
First, the fact that they were all about love was good, as that is what I tend to write about at the moment, and I also felt from the first meeting that they sort of, understood what we wanted to do and they got the music side of it, which was really important. And the fact that they were all going to be broadcast was fantastic because you don't often get that many steps in one, you get send us the script etc.

You've teamed up with Fergus March to write Miss Wright, what can you tell us about the show?
The show is set in a cafe in a railway station in the midlands and it’s a very sleepy area where they’ll get the same customers again and again every day. There are kind of two things I suppose, there is the relationship between me and my boss who is called Jenny: My character is quite up-beat and positive and her character is a little bit OCD and kind of likes to control everything. There is also a guy in the station called Jim, who I really fancy and I've already imagined our life together in it, so it’s really about me saving Jim for an irate customer which ends up in us going out on what I think is a date, but for him is just a drink to say thank you and then the aftermath of that!

We know you love introducing a bit of music to your live comedy act, what's it like to bring your own songs to a TV production?
One of the best things about it was like, that we got to actually shoot like music videos. Normally when I do the songs live I just sing them, and the fact that we got to shoot like, lines in the songs like, we were in the bath and the director was like are you going to get in to the bath and I was like Oh My God... I guess I’m going to have to get in to the bath like 'cos when we were writing it I forgot that, yeah. It was liberating to put visuals to it as well as the sound.

What can you tell us about the musical numbers in Miss Wright?
Uhm, the musical numbers come to reveal subtext or they basically come to reveal, something that the character is feeling inside, so maybe on the surface they seem cool and calm but then you get this crazy stuff that’s going on in the song which is really happening to them, but then it cuts back to reality. That's the rule that we got, it's like a normal sitcom, but we can break out of it to reveal what's going on. We do break that rule towards the end where me and Jenny had a fight in the car park, but I guess rules are there to be broken.

Obviously, Love Matters is series of one off comedy shows, do you think we could ever see Miss Wright getting her own series?
I hope so, yeah. We'll just wait and see, I'm very proud of what we've done, I felt that we had so much fun doing it, if it goes further that would be amazing.

As we said before, you're no stranger to our TV screens. How does working on a new project like Miss Wright compare to working on a series like Peep Show?
Working on a new project always feels different, because no one feels sure of what the show is at the beginning. The other time I had an experience that I remember very strongly doing, was Whites, a show for BBC Two I did with Alan Davies and with Whites and this, the minute we got on to set, we had so much fun, I couldn't believe that only a week had gone by, and we were all genuinely upset when the set was finished and still meet up with everyone since. I think the difference is really, that you kind of don't know anything that’s going to happen, you don't even know if you are going to get a series, where as going in to a long running show like Shameless or Peep Show, it feels different because it is like a machine that is well up and running, it is different. It is like marrying in to a family that already exists and then making something new feels like having a baby or something!!

Obviously, we have to ask about Dobby and Mark, what's next for them?
I wish I knew! Sometimes people say is there anything you want to happen to Dobby and Mark and I say, can they go to a derelict building? I always think they should get married in some kind of dungeon and dragons themed wedding in the woods or something! The truth is I don't know, I don’t even know if I'll be back. I mean at the end of the last series I went to New York, I don't even know if they've commissioned more, but hopefully Dobby will be back and hopefully there will be more escapades.

And what about Isy Suttie, what's next for you?
So, I’m in the current series of Shameless which is on Channel 4 and I’ve also got a Radio 4 series called 'Isy Sutties' Love Letters' which starts in April, and that's more like the stuff that I do live. It is a different love story set in my home town every week, where I play the different characters of the love story with songs. I am also working on a film with Ralph Little, writing it, so we'll see what happens with that. It's very early days yet!

Catch Love Matters: Miss Wright on Sky Living from 9pm.
