Goodall joined the diplomatic service in 1956 and served in Austria, Germany, Indonesia and Kenya, before spending 1997-1991 as the British High Commissioner, the equivalent of Ambassador, in India. He also spent time working in the Cabinet Office, where he helped negotiate the 1985 Anglo-Irish Agreement.
He died on 22 July 2016 at the age of 84.
Goodall was taught to paint at Ampleforth College, but started to paint seriously some twenty years later after reading Winston Churchill's book Painting as a Pastime. He works in ink and watercolour, and has held one-man shows in North Yorkshire, London, Durham, Hull and Delhi. He has published two books of his paintings: Remembering India (1997, Scorpion Cavendish; ISBN 978-1900269056) and Ryedale Pilgrimage (2000, Maxiprint; ISBN 978-1871125474).
