Comedy Award for Renwick

Screenwriter David Renwick won the Ronnie Barker Writers' Guild of Great Britain Award at the British Comedy Awards on Saturday night. Renwick, whose credits include Jonathan Creek, One Foot In The Grave and Love Soup, paid tribute to several colleagues who have died in the past 12 months including his long-standing producer, Verity Lambert.

Other winners included Drop Dead Gorgeous (created by Carmel Morgan with episodes also written by Jan McVerry, Stephen Russell and Cheryl Taylor) for best Comedy Drama and Gavin And Stacey (written by Ruth Jones and James Corden) for best TV Comedy.

The Outstanding Contribution to Comedy award was given posthumously to producer Geoffrey Perkins who died in August.
