On the 2nd August we lost our friend Seb Patrick. Please allow us a period of radio silence as we come to terms with what's happened. Goodbye, Seb, we'll miss you.

We're raising funds in his memory to help his family in any way we can. If you're able to spare anything, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to Paul Gannon for pointing us towards this Manchester Evening News interview with Rob Grant, on Fat. It makes for an interesting read, with a glimpse of his personal life that we don’t often get to see.

I kinda feel bad bringing this up, but I couldn’t help but notice the following:

Grant says it was a “particularly traumatic” period in his life which led him, around 13 years ago, from a fit and lean thirtysomething to a man facing middle age with more than a paunch.

13 years ago? That would be… 1994. Around the time of the Grant Naylor partnership split. Oh, I feel like tabloid scum, I really do. I’ll be camping outside his house next.

  • Does anyone seriously think that if things had have gone differently with Dwarf (or, more accurately, with Doug) he wouldn’t have turned into Jabba’s little brother? I don’t reckon. Still…what do we know?

  • The bit that confuses me is about Red Dwarf lifting Rob out of “extreme poverty”. Erm, you would have thought three years as co-head-writer of Spitting Image would have done that…

  • I know that most sketchwriters don’t, but I just thought that as head writers they would get paid rather more.

    But I do speak from a position of COMPLETE IGNORANCE of this kind of thing, admittedly.

  • I just wanted to see if you would reply:)
    Thank you
    I’m a man but it’s okay, you can still impregnate me:)
