RIP Ray Galton (Steptoe & Son)

British comedy writer Ray Galton who created Steptoe & Son and Hancock's Half Hour with script writing partner Alan Simpson dies aged 88.

Ray Galton died following a long battle with dementia his family has announced. Mr Galton met his writing partner Alan Simpson while in hospital as a teenager, the pair were both recovering from tuberculosis in a sanatorium in Surrey.

Galton and Simpson are widely considered the godfathers of situation comedy

His writing partner Alan Simpson died in February 2017

'The end of an iconic era, but the legacy of Hancock's Half Hour, Steptoe and Son and over 600 scripts is huge.

'They will endure, inspire and bring laughter to the nation for evermore.'

The pair met at Milford Sanatorium in Surrey when both were diagnosed with tuberculosis as teenagers.

As well as work with Tony Hancock and Steptoe actors Harry H Corbett and Wilfrid Brambell, they wrote television, film and stage scripts for the likes of Frankie Howerd, Peter Sellers, Leonard Rossiter and Arthur Lowe.

Their work is still screened regularly around the world in English and in foreign language versions.
