john howard davies has died

Who is he?
Only the producer who bought to the screen 'Monty Python's Flying Circus', 'Fawlty Towers', 'Steptoe and Son' and 'Mr Bean' (as well as 'The Good Life').
I remember him from years ago watching David Lean's 'Oliver Twist', in which he played Oliver (alongside Robert Newton, Alec Guinness and Anthony Newley), and as Tom in 'Tom Brown's Schooldays'.
Stone me, what a life. I will even forgive him for being involved with 'The Vicar of Dibley' (which is utter garbage).
