Elsley took up a career in theatrical writing, and then pursued television writing after parting from Enfield. For three years, Elsley was artistic director of Pocket Theatre Cumbria, which was based at Kendal's Brewery Arts Centre. At that time he was also writing episodes for TV series Casualty and London's Burning. These, and his short film Govan Ghost Story (1989), opened up other opportunities for other television writing. Elsley's big break came when he was commissioned by the BBC to adapt Iain Banks's novel The Crow Road for television.

He executive produced Skins U.S. in 2011 and whilst still both versions of Skins with its partners, is now turning to other projects.

Elsley has five children and currently lives in Kentish Town, London.
