To be honest, I'm still so shocked at the news that it all seems slightly unreal; forgive me if what I'm writing doesn't make much sense or fails to convey the deep sense of loss that so many people will be experiencing right now, particularly of course, Paul's close friends and family for whom I have the deepest sympathy at this very sad time.
Many visitors to this site may well have had direct dealings with Paul, either via the BF website or even in person at one of the Big Finish Days or other conventions. If so, you will know something of the kind of man he was. Paul was always so kind to me, friendly and approachable from the outset; we started working with BF at more or less the same time and he was always fun to be with and incredibly supportive.
Only a few weeks ago for example, soon after the release of Dr Who: Moonflesh, he sent me an email, completely out of the blue, just to say how much he'd enjoyed the story and to say nice things about my performance in it. I was incredibly touched that he'd taken the time to express such warm and generous sentiments and wrote back to tell him so, little imagining that we'd never be in touch again. He will be much missed.
