Sad news came yesterday from Facebook page' Timothy Moxey, John’s son.

https://www.facebook.com/timothy.moxey

Today Jane Moxey, John’s wife, revealed details there:

John slipped away peacefully at Hospice House in University Place, WA on Monday night. He received an unexpected diagnosis of stage 4 terminal metastatic lung cancer the day after his 94th birthday 8 weeks ago. He fought a brave battle. Sadly he got pneumonia which hastened his demise. He’s now at peace and pain free and is on his “Great Adventure.”❤️


John Moxey (26 February 1925 - 29 April 2019).

His film directorial works, mainly on television, include Avengers episodes The Joker (as second assistant director) and Who's Who??? (as main film director).

RIP.

That's sad, John used to drop in on conversations on online fora and always had interesting things to say. I love "Who's Who???" and he certainly captured the essence of the colour Diana Riggs in that outing.

Aww bless him. A very prolific director in his time - a huge amount of credits, managing to successfully break into American TV with high profile shows like Mission Impossible, Murder She Wrote etc.

RIP John.

Very sad news. I remember him posting on the BritMovie forum along with Francis Matthews.
Whenever I saw his name on the titles I knew the episode or film would be extremely well crafted and that the viewing ahead would be riveting and immensely enjoyable.

I just realized that John was the last living film director who participated in the color Emma Peel episodes.
