The Endless Note

Friday Fun – Tribute To John Sullivan – RIP

Somehow the sad news of the passing of one of, if not the, best comic script writer of our time had passed me by until I noticed an obituary in a magazine I was reading earlier this week.

John Richard Thomas Sullivan OBE (23 December 1946 – 23 April 2011) was an English television scriptwriter responsible for several popular British sitcoms, including Only Fools and Horses, Citizen Smith and Just Good Friends.

His last work was Rock & Chips, a comedy drama prequel to Only Fools and Horses. The final episode of Sullivan’s last comedy series aired five days after his death from pneumonia on 23 April 2011.

Words will never do him justice but hopefully this will.
