Iain Pattinson wrote Humphrey Lyttelton's scripts for I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue for the thick end of fifteen years. He didn't bother with the clever end. Before writing for Humph, Iain supplied the chairman's script for The News Quiz and many opening monologues for Loose Ends, also on BBC Radio 4. He was plucked from obscurity to write his first series of Clue in 1992 and subsequently went on to be plucked from obscurity twice a year thereafter to repeat the process. Since then he has also contributed to countless television and radio comedy shows. A list of performers of his scripts now reads like a 'Y to Z' of British comedy. Projects to which he has contributed have amassed four Sony Gold awards, A Bronze Rose of Montreux, a Viewers and Listeners' award, a TRIC award and a Cycling Proficiency Badge.
