Oh bugger. Apparently David Croft just passed away.

If I were to list my inspirations as a dialogue/comedy writer? Croft is on there, close to the top. Yes, he wrote stereotypes and stock situations, but, boy, he did it well.

Rest in peace.

That is very sad news!

*nods* He was older rather than younger, though.

This is true enough!

I am pretty sure that Are You Being Served? was my introduction to British comedy, he was quite the writer!

That's really sad news.

To this day, 'Allo, 'Allo remains a guilty pleasure, in large part due to the play on languages.

I've just been watching clips over on youtube where they also have episodes posted.

He had a wonderful ability to make you care about his characters.

Yes! And he did this without the characters ever seeming entirely real. That's skill.
