Brian Clemens died recently.
His work on The Avengers – the UK TV series with Patrick McNee and Diana Rigg and others – is still a source of inspiration to writers who aspire to use humor well, to be surreal when appropriate, and want to have fun with their drama.
…The Avengers writer created some of TV’s most enduring shows. His secret? “There’s no mystery: arse to chair, pen to paper.”
(And I take comfort from his writing space looking a mess.)
