Sir John Mortimer, QC: April 21, 1923- January 16, 2009

Creator of Rumpole of the Bailey, "his large and sometimes rumpled figure, like that of his Rumpole character, was instantly recognisable; he exuded a universal bonhomie and revelled in a party-going social life even when conducted from the confines of a wheelchair."

Loved Rumpole, and 'she who must be obeyed.' I grew up on fuzzy PBS.
