A national treasure dies

The BBC has announced that John Mortimer has died.  How very sad.  Best known for his creation, Rumpole.  For me his adaptation of Brideshead Revisited is unsurpassed.  Time to get the DVD’s out again and watch the series again in his honour.  I hope that John did not see the awful film that was released last year before he passed away.  He left his mark and will be missed.
