William Cook

William Cook has been a jobbing hack for far too long, and has written for a wide array of grubby papers, a few of which are still solvent. He's written biographies of Peter Cook & Dudley Moore and Morecambe & Wise, and was awarded the Johann Strauss Gold Medal for his reporting from Vienna. His proudest scoop (so far) was revealing (exclusively, in the Mail on Sunday) that the Trumpton creator Gordon Murray burnt Windy Miller and all his other Trumpton puppets on a bonfire in his back garden.
