    Max Arthur was a historian but also a sometime actor and having checked, I can find no mention of him on the Forum, despite his Times Obituary: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/max-arthur-obituary-0w5grr2zz Made a single appearance in Grange Hill, but for here he played Zuko in Planet of Fire for Doctor Who.

    Van Halen

    Cheers, most of it is late 70s/early 80s stuff. Brother's accident was in 1988, so I'm guessing one of his mates went to the Van Halen Tour in 1993 and bought it for him. Probably the latest thing he owned, music wise. My younger brother took his vinyl years ago.

    Van Halen

    Obviously I am aware of the Van Halen health issues, and perhaps I would have baptised them as soft rock. But that is not what brings me to this thread. My late brother has left a 1993 World Tour Van Halen scarf, discovered in a box in the attic. Thinking of auctioning it off with his programmes for Kiss, Scorpions, Uriah Heep, Live Aid (only member of the family to go), Ozzy Osbourne etc etc. But maybe I should hold on to them and wait until a few more of the performers are dead - not sure I'll have long to wait!

    Flagging this one up, simply because I don't know. There's a death notice for a Doreen James (92): http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/236121/james I have no idea how old the costume designer Doreen James was, who worked on significant Who stories, as well as many other TV shows. Toby doesn't seem to have mentioned it. Could it be the same person?
