Now being reported. Had been battling cancer for some time and passed on Thursday.

Lovely man in my experience. And he was responsible for so very many hours of brilliant television that I've enjoyed through my life.

RIP sir. And thank you.

Very sad to have just heard this news. A superb, often unfairly overlooked writer of some superb television. Glad that he lived long enough to contribute to DVD extras for The Avengers and also to complete his autobiography.

But I'm really not liking this January at all... Another loss. Sad

RIP.

I never actually met Robert, but we did exchange various emails over several years and he assisted with both my books Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots and The Making of Casino Royale (1967). He had mentioned to me a couple of years ago that he was ill, but I never realised that it was something so serious.

Where do I start to talk about someone as prolific and talented as Robert Banks Stewart? I could list the various series he contributed to but anyone can see that for themselves over at IMDB. Then there was his ability as a creator and producer of shows for the BBC. If it wasn’t for Robert I would not have spent three very enjoyable days with two good friends looking at filming locations for Shoestring in and around Bristol in 2014. So all I can say is a big thank you to Robert for giving me so many hours of enjoyment through his various shows and episodes.

I have to admit that the loss of such people as Robert is by far the worst part of my interest in cult film and TV and obviously this is felt more so if you had some connection to them.

Bergerac is one of my favourite series, and I love his Doctor Who stories too. A very sad loss.
