John Esmonde obituaries

Comedy writer John Esmonde, who, with Bob Larbey, created and wrote sitcoms including The Good Life, Please Sir! and Ever Decreasing Circles died earlier this month.

There are obituaries in The Times, The Guardian and by Anthony Hayward in The Independent.
Having decided that Down To Earth (1995) would be their last series together, Esmonde and Larbey went their separate ways. Esmonde retired to the coastal village of La Herradura, in the Granada province of Spain, and concentrated on writing novels. "I haven't had one published yet, but being rejected makes me feel young again," he said.
