Can anyone think of a less heartless, cold, demoralising word as destroyed when used by production companies regarding not wanting submissions? The following sentence is common. Anything submitted to us will not be read and will be destroyed! It sends shivers down my spine. There are many production companies set up by comic actors and writers of note. They too use the word destroyed. Please excuse me if I don't applaud the reincarnation of Alan Partridge. Steve Coogan being a partner in a production company. Or the prospect of another Walliam's and Hart production. I will not be putting cornet to mouth as a fanfare to the news that Bain, Armstrong and Clarke have set up a new production company. A sad day for any would be comedy writer.
