Stephen Woolley

British director and producer who took the BBFC to task on Wittertainment - twice - over the certification of Made In Dagenham (Woolley felt it was unfair that Made In Dagenham was classified 15 for language, whereas The King's Speech only got a 12).

Woolley is certainly capable of holding a grudge – in 2005, promoting his film Stoned, he complained of the injustice that back in 1984 The Company Of Wolves lost out on a Best Costume Bafta to Gandhi – "I thought, 'it’s a sheet!'"

In the same interview, Woolley aired his argument that film critics should have a licence, after Chris Tookey had attacked Stoned for not having any sympathetic characters in it. Mark somewhat disagreed with this proposition.
