"Dave Beauchamp is the complete package director – quite simply he is a delight to work with. He has a fantastic eye, understands story and respects the script. He is calm and unflappable under pressure; he sets a lovely tone that permeates throughout the set to cast and crew as he leads from the front. But the most impressive thing about Dave is his enthusiasm for directing, he simply loves what he does and I was always really pleased with the results."

"I employed Dave as a Director on Hollyoaks. A former operator, he did the trainee scheme at Lime Pictures and stood out head and shoulders above. Dave has a fantastic eye, always brings something unexpected to the table and is a delight to work with. He is a creative director who understands the importance of both character and story and he brings a beauty to his episodes. He works well with cast and crew alike and commands a great deal of respect from everyone who knows him. He deals with tough schedules and frequent changes calmly and always supports his team. I was always delighted with his work."

"It is very refreshing to come across a new director who has the ability to keep everyone, cast, crew and producers, happy while faced with the gruelling schedule of a long-running drama series. Dave Beauchamp is truly an actors' director: someone who takes an interest in the person he has cast while being able to give a well-judged note at exactly the right time to enhance a performance - all of which is evident on screen. I look forward to working with him again: he is a delight."
