I am very sorry to hear of the death of the comedy writer David Nobbs. It has been widely reported on Twitter this evening, but not yet in the mainstream media.
When I was in the sixth form we practically conversed in lines from Fawlty Towers and Reggie Perrin.
I don't know how the latter holds up today, but it meant a great deal to me at the time.
Nobbs' comic novels are very good too.
