BBC Last Laugh winner

James Donohue has won the BBC's Last Laugh competition.

In the contest to write the second half of sitcom scripts by established writers, Donahue chose to finish The Old Guys, started by Guild members Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong. It will be shown later this year.

It's been a strange competition. Getting eight half-completed sitcom scripts from writers as famous as Marks and Gran is quite an undertaking but, as we reported in January, the BBC never really gave the contest much publicity.
