Subject: EastEnders creator Tony Holland dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 11/29/07 at 11:54 am

EastEnders creator Tony Holland has died aged 67 in a London hospital after being unwell for some time, a BBC spokeswoman has confirmed.

Holland devised the primetime soap with Julia Smith, who he met on the set of Z Cars in 1971. His other credits include Angels, District Nurse and Eldorado.

EastEnders was first broadcast in February 1985 and still regularly draws audiences of up to 10 million.

Executive producer Diederick Santers described Holland as a "true genius".

"All of us at EastEnders are forever indebted to him for creating the programme with the late Julia Smith," he said.

Tony will be remembered with great affection and respect by everyone at EastEnders."
