(1972- ) UK comedian, actor, screenwriter and author, best known for Television work in various iterations of the double act Mitchell and Webb, and as actor in many tv comedies and dramas. How Not to be a Boy (2017) is a memoir. Webb is of sf interest for his first novel, Come Again (2020), whose protagonist, the widow of a man who has died suddenly in his forties, finds herself, by unexplained Timeslip, back in her eighteen-year-old 1992 self, beginning a relationship with her husband-to-be. She decides to train him properly this time round, a Godgame impulse soon mired in complications native to Time Travel tales. [JC]
