Brian Clemens has died.
Brian Clemens, creator of The Avengers and The Professionals, Has Died at Age 83
While the name may not be recognisable to a lot of folks on the North American side of the pond, Clemens was an English screenwriter and television producer best known for The Avengers and The Professionals, and is fondly remembered for some of the concepts he brought to television and some of the episodes and the like that he scripted for shows. A sad loss for the English entertainment industry.
R.I.P. Brian Clemens. You'll be remembered for your work.
