Andy Hamilton co-writer and co-producer, with Guy Jenkin, of Drop the Dead Donkey '... lots of good, sensible, practical advice.' Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran creators and writers of New Statesman, Birds of a Feather, Goodnight Sweetheart and Love Hurts 'I only wish I'd had it when I first started writing.'
