Last quote by Meera Syal

It's a problem. If there were five or six or seven shows on TV featuring South Asians, then absolutely Rochdale is a worthy subject to investigate – but it's about context. We should also be thinking about stories that just show us as people, not issues. We don't want to redo something for the sake of it, but we're discussing something. We'd like to bring our brand of humour back but in a different format. We have to be confident we've got the material and I think we have. We're gathering it. That could well happen.

The most recent quote attributed to Meera Syal came from an article called If you use it, if you like it, then why not pay for it? It’s only fair: “I think we've slightly gone backwards. Some of the stuff I'd want to have on TV wouldn't get on at the moment. It's a conservative climate with lots of period pieces and lots of nostalgia. When people think of stuff with South Asians in, it tends to be programmes like the upcoming Rochdale abuse drama [Three Girls]. Of course it's not like those things don't happen, but if that's all that TV is doing, it looks like that's the only thing Asians do.”.
