    Really sorry to hear this - Paul was a lovely bloke who put a ridiculous amount of time into obsessively researching RD minutiae for his book. Nothing was too obscure for him to find a way to include it!

    It was a pleasure to meet him at the last DJ, I know he came over for it basically not knowing anyone in person in advance, but made a lot of friends that weekend (particularly among the "Red Dwarf Posse" gang) and everyone who met him found him a pleasure to be around. And I was one of the judges who voted him in third place in the costume competition for a brilliant and distinctive Chancellor Wednesday costume!

    He will be sadly missed by the Red Dwarf fandom, to which he was an enthusiastic and valuable contributor. My thoughts are with his friends and family for this sudden and sad loss.

    Blimey, can't believe this. Really sad news.
    He was a nice bloke as I recall.
    He also had a really cool avatar!

    What horrible news. He was a good poster on here, and copies of his Total Immersion volumes I and II stand side my side on my bookshelf. They were fantastically researched and detailed pieces of work.

    Very sad news indeed. My condolences to his loved ones.

    I still need to get Total Immersion - having seen some superb sample pages and numerous recommendations - so will make sure I order them later today. I'll give them a good read and a lasting place on my bookshelf.

    Hey @Seb any chance of putting in a good word to someone at GNP to authorise an obituary on the website? He was a very valued member & contributor to the fandom after all.

    Terribly sad news. RIP Paul.
    I enjoyed his contributions to the Red Dwarf fandom very much, and it was an absolute pleasure for me to meet him at DJ - such a warm, lovely, fun guy! I'm going to have a proper read of his brilliant Total Immersion encyclopedia now, as I followed how much passion and dedication he put into writing every entry.

    What sad news. Paul's avatar was one of the first I saw when joining the forum and the TI books are great.

    RIP.
