R.I.P. John Mortimer

Oh, dear. John Mortimer author of the Rumpole books, died on January 16. I still haven't bought the BBC Rumpole of the Bailey series on DVD, but I will, I will. I have read some of the books but not many. The Guardian, where I first saw the news, has a fond farewell with videos.

The Nashville Examimer has a tribute.
The Telegraph has a tribute by his son and more by others who knew him.
The Financial Times
New York Times
