Sad news

Very sad to read of the death of Sir John Mortimer, one of Britain's most prolific writers, TV dramatists and playwrights.

He's best known for the Rumpole of the Bailey series, of which I have every book. The JAM connection is that a regular on the series was Richard Murdoch who played Uncle Tom and remains one of the most loved JAM guests. JAM regular Peter Jones also appeared on the series.

It's such that such a brilliant comic mind is lost to us.
