Linda Smith

I'm not heavily into mourning celebrities. Every day sees reports of another minor character passing away and very few actually made any difference at all to my life.

It caught me by surprise therefore to find that the death of Linda Smith has genuinely upset me.

Linda was a stalwart of many Radio 4 comedy shows, including Just a Minute, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and the News Quiz. It is these programmes that I heard her on most. She was always quick, very witty and above all intelligently humorous.

Linda was also president of and a spokesperson for the British Humanist Association.

Tonight's edition of the News Quiz at 18:30 on Radio 4 will be a special tribute to Linda. It's repeated at 12:30 on Saturday and is available online for a week from Saturday afternoon.
