British comedy actress who first came to attention in a short-lived comedy series, "A Soft Touch," July to September 1978. She reached a peak of acclaim in the three-year TV series "Agony," 1989 to 1992 as the fussing Jewish mother Beattie, winning awards.

Tall and thin and appearing scatter-brained, Lipman acted from her early teens. She is known by her friends and family as chaotic, hypersensitive and guilt-anxious. She had a deep depression in 1984. In mid-1994, while touring with the stage production of "Re:Joyce," playing the title role of Joyce Grenfell, she had surgery to remove a tumor from the top of her spine that could have paralyzed her. She bounced back with "Agony Again" on 8/31/1995, reprising the role she had established 16 years before.

She opened a winning production of anecdotes, sketches and songs in March 1997 of "Maureen Lipman: Alive and Kicking" with her customary impeccable timing.
