Paul Makin obituary

In The Guardian, Laurence Marks remembers comedy writer Paul Makin who has died at the age of 54.
[His series] Nightingales was the closest British TV comedy ever came to giving its audience the theatre of Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter, with perhaps an ample sprinkling of Spike Milligan thrown in - yet it was hugely original and remains as funny today as it was in the early 1990s.

  1. Paul Makin was a kind and gentle man, as well as an extraordinary and original writer. You don't get many of those to the pound. Both Paul and his work will be missed.
