Sad news to report as writer Brian Clemens has passed away yesterday at age 83. The writer was known to many as one of the creators of the television series The Professionals as well as one of the main contributing writers to the 1960’s series The Avengers.
To horror fans, Clemens was known as being the writer of 1965’s Curse Of The Voodoo, 1960’s The Tell Tale Heart, the classic 1971 thriller See No Evil, and 1970’s And Soon The Darkness. He was also the main writer and creator of the 70’s TV mystery/horror series Thriller.
One of my personal favorites of Clemens’ was The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad, a film that my father and I loved to watch on lazy Saturday afternoons whenever it appeared on TV.
Clemens is survived by his wife and two sons. We send our condolences and thoughts.
