John le Carré 1931 - 2020

Post by stearn »

I hesitated before adding this one. Obviously not a TV personality, but someone who has contributed, through adaptations of their books, some excellent TV and radio productions over the years, not least of all the Smiley stories and more recently The Night Manager.

Well his cameo in The Night Manager was shown in the news bulletins so he was a TV performer too.
This has been a bad month in a very bad year. RIP John.

I'm watching less and less new TV shows, but I did watch and enjoy "The Night Manager".

He knew his stuff, but then he would of course, always top notch and quality.
