Prolific playwright and the hidden hand behind a string of classic TV series
Jeremy Paul, who has died of pancreatic cancer aged 71, was a prominent and industrious television writer associated with many of the leading series of the past 40 years, from Upstairs, Downstairs and The Duchess of Duke Street in the 1970s, to Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected in the 80s and Lovejoy in the 90s.

Set in London and flashing back to a Ouija board séance, Prophecy is the opening story. As Francesca's friends drop around her, she comes to realise her new boyfriend's son, Edward, may have something to do with the tragic bout of accidents. Prophecy relies on the lead's Catholic religion and her boyfriend's (Nigel Havers) family history. As a sadist and paedophile, Marquis Francis Halkin is the “black sheep” of the family and somehow young Edward seems psychically linked to him. The eerie Halkin family motto “Non Omnis Moriar” (“I »
