Despite being a soft-spoken Lancastrian of mild-mannered appearance, the writer and producer William Smethurst, who has died aged 71, was known to his detractors in radio and television as Butcher Bill. Cutler explained after Bill’s death: He told me The Archers was essentially a social comedy – like Jane Austen – a group of interesting characters in an English village. Among his legacy to Ambridge were the hotel manager Caroline Bone (later Pemberton, now Sterling), the Lower Loxley heir Nigel Pargetter and the development of the chaotic Grundy family, as well as Shula Archer’s Young Conservative membership.
