I was shocked when I heard this last night he always seemed a genuinely nice chap and only 67 which seems so young to me

Sad news. I feel really upset. He seemed such a kind, caring man.

What sad news, I loved his humour since seeing him first on Blankety Blank, all those years ago. I missed his radio 2 music programme when he left last year and always tried to catch For the Love of Dogs. Such a kind man. RIP Paul.

Oh, that is sad. I used to enjoy his radio programme . He seemed to be a lovely man even though he liked to pretend he was very grumpy.

Shocked, loved him for his humour and wit,and also his caring and compassion for the animals.
Have read all of his books where his warmth and compassion as a social worker in early years are peppered with his wit and humour.
RIP paul

I didn't 'get him' at first- but his love and passion for rescuing animals shone through. Very sad.

Kim19 Wed 29-Mar-23 08:32:37

Our loss. I found him such a tonic. Funny, sincere, fearless. Quite an epitaph. So pleased his departure was peaceful.

LRavenscroft Wed 29-Mar-23 08:41:58

So sorry to hear of his passing. He always had the most warming smile and wicked sense of humour. Silent are the days that follow......

Paul was favourite of mine too, all through his career. Lily Savage was a great character but Paul's work with and for animals was his greatest strength. He will be missed by Battersea especially. RIP Paul.
