    Must say, before James Corden became a thing, I considered Russell Grant to have the most punchable face on telly.

    Ending Dong Looks like the doctor must have popped out of the house for a minute – Leslie Phillips has died at the age of 98, and will have to amend his catchphrases to "goodbye" and "I don't say". Star of multiple Carry On films, including Carry On Nurse (1959), Carry On Columbus (1992), and Carried Off in a Coffin (2022), he's best known to younger, cooler, lither audiences like myself for his part in the Harry Potter series as the Sorting Hat, a crazed old pervert who sits on children's heads and dictates their fates, and occasionally shits out swords – truly his most risque role of all. Only 5 of you thought the long-time resident of the Drop Forty care home would see 99, though all 5 banked a weirdly brave number of points on him – Gryffindors, clearly. The only action in the top 41 is @BuffaloPhil's unlucky swing from 7th to 13th, but the race for last place is a real carry-on, with @chilean way making way for @Neobrakeon and @msc to have a big old ding-dong at the bottom.

    Thought me entering the top 10 would be a very shortlived adventure as I had Doddie at no. 19, but a short look at the stats shows more than half the field selected him. Think I might even stay in 10th place for now!

    Doug Dillard dead. He was a bluegrass banjo player who formed a short-lived but great mid-late 60s band with one of my musical idols, Gene Clark, as well as being in the more traditional Dillards. Who were also in the Andy Griffith Show, so I expect this news to pop up in that thread in a few hours time.

    I never did find out what was wrong with John Calley, so I reluctantly dropped him from this year's DDP entry. According to his Wiki page, he made this cryptic statement last year when he won his Oscar: . That could mean anything from mild depression to terminal cancer. If anyone ever finds out what's bothering him, please let us know.

    The living ones I could find at first glance, ordered by birth. I'm not going to go in depth, this is just what I saw from the Wiki article for Band of Brothers. Anyone who has more can expand. Frank Perconte (b. March 10 1917) Richard Winters (b. January 21 1918) Joseph A. Lesniewski (b. August 29 1920) Lynn "Buck" Compton (b. December 31, 1921) Donald Malarkey (b. 1921) William Guarnere (b. April 28 1922) Edward Heffron (b. May 16, 1923) Darrell "Shifty" Powers (b. 1923) I do as it happens & it's quite comprehensive, but the likes of Hubert Suerth Jr & co. aren't realistically going to get UK obits. James Alley died last year, John Martin in 2005 & neither got any real press mention. Winters definitely will - Compton probably will for his post-Easy Company career, as well as his war-time links. Guarnere... possible as he's high profile of the veterans. The rest... I doubt it. Some of them are doing extremely well considering they are now all over 85.

    On this day in 1984 american model and up and coming actor Jon -Erik Hexum died aged 26 on the 20th Century Fox lot whilst filming tv series Cover Up. His character was involved in a scene that required them to load cartridges into a 44 Magnum handgun. The scene was filmed but was not to the liking and exact specifications of the director in terms of the primary/master shot so it was requested to be filmed again. There was a delay on set snd a bored, impatient and restless Hexum decided to play around with the gun to lighten the atmosphere on set He unloaded all of the blànks bar one before he started messing around 'playing Russian roulette ' with the gun , putting it to his temple and pulling the trigger. Totally unaware that shooting a blank at such close proximity was potentially very damaging and dangerous .The plastic wadding covering the blank was propelled with such force that the blast caused a small amount of blunt force trauma to his skull that caused a massive brain haemorrhage. Six days later his life support was switched off but not before his mother gave permission for his heart ,kidneys and cornea to be donated to transplant patients. Other shows part of his sadly short acting credits include Sci fi series Voyagers!(1982/1983), made for TV movie The Making of a male model which also starred Joan Collins, 1984 film The Bear, a biopic of head football coach at the University of Alabama played by Gary Busey and US Primetime tv soap Hotel.
