Friends of the Reverend David 'Paige' Paget, the London vicar and Green Room. Club regular who was tragically found murdered last week, have been remembering a true theatrical aficionado.

Upon his first ever visit to the actors club, and confronted with the usual array of luvvies. Pudge's eager opening gambit was: "Is Damaris Hayman still working'?"

Hayman, of course, appeared in Dr Who episode The Daemons, and it soon transpired that Padge was a fanatical follower of the cult show.

Regular Green Room lunchers recall not only his ability to reel off obscure intricacies of plot and cast, but also his comic propensity for heckling guest speakers. Parishioners at Padge's Fulham church will also have been aware of their vicar's love of all things aetorly.

"As a clergyman David attracted very good houses," Green Room secretary and member of Padge's flock Derek Lamden tells me. "His sermons were frequently drawn front the current storylines of the soaps.

"One Sunday, he enlightened us by drawing analogies with 'The Stage's Showell directory." One can only wonder at the moral meaning gleaned front that particular sermon surety testament to a supreme wit.

In a fitting eulogy 10 a much-loved friend, Lamden adds: "We pray that he is where his faith told hint he would he, and perhaps it is not too irreligious to hope he was whisked there in the tardis to meet his Dr Who."
