    Political Frailty

    Former West Gloucestershire Tory MP Paul Marland Times Obituary: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/paul-marland-obituary-5wrmkddvz An unremarkable MP compared with Bob Howarth (Bolton Council leader, last freeman of Bolton) whose obit in still in absentia so far. Unsurprising that Marland and Ainsworth as Tories have almost instantaneous broadsheet coverage.

    Wilson Pickett

    Report of the death of Willie Schofield, member of the US charting group The Falcons. https://www.soultracks.com/story-willie-schofield-dies He co-wrote their biggest hit, You're So Fine, and was reportedly instrumental in recruiting Wilson Pickett to the group after Joe Stubbs left.

    Silvio Berlusconi

    Amazed he doesn't have his own topic. Former Italian PM, Silvio Berlusconi has had a pacemaker fitted and is now in the hospital for a cardiac deficiency. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36468019 In any event, good value surely for discussion.

    Ralph Schuckett, co-writer of the Kate And Allie Theme and some incidental music, reportedly dead. Pokemon and Empire Records among his other, I'm going to say, achievements.

    Harry Potter

    Ritter was my age. (See how I brought it round to the topic again?) Well, a wee bit older but not by much. I've always had a feeling with me it will be a sudden aneurysm or haemorrhage (fuck it I ain't looking up the spelling). However, if the good folks of Glesca keep dotting about without their masks on like idiots, it might be something so generously given by the friendly folks of the city. (I'm one jab down and I wasn't sure I was happy about getting it until about an hour before). I'm going to brave the pubs though on day one of re-opening. And probably day three anaw!

    Harry Potter

    You are the one who suggested I might have gone to university in Minsk. Thus you patronised me, seeming to suggest the effects of Chernob might have been localised. I have responded with an answer to your point. I felt vulnerable, certainly. That decided my choice of viewing. Maybe I phrased it slightly incorrectly. I have no statistical of scientific evidence, all I say is it wouldn't surprise me if there is an explosion of cancer cases. Mind you, I feel the same way about laser treatment on the old eyes - perfect storm when in 30 years those who have had it lose their sight because of something resulting from it. Maybe I'm just scared of everything, I see pitfalls in everything out of the mundane.

    Harry Potter

    Nope. Sounds dreadful, I don't need to be reminded of heading off to university while worrying that radioactive fallout was falling out the sky in the days and months that followed. Wouldn't surprise me if in the next few years there's an uptick in cancers of people my age.

    Harry Potter

    While I'm about, cross-posting Paul Ritter's death here. Played Eldred Worple, the author of a vampire book who wanted to write Potter's biography in The Half-Blood Prince. Now, I'll say for certain, the only thing I absolutely remember him from was playing Jimmy Perry in the Dad's Army Story - and it's a terrific performance, especially when he realises he won't get the part of Walker. Catch it somewhere if you haven't seen it.

    Just discovered that Chris Crookall, who played Andy Turner in the latter stages of the show and who became a successful film editor, died back in October 2020, aged just 32. https://www.televisual.com/news/british-film-editors-announces-cut-above-awards/ RIP.

    Grange Hill

    Long running British children's programme (1978 - 2008) featuring innumerable actors, some of whom went on to greater things, others who actually learned some life skills! I've created this topic for those whose best known roles or those whose only roles were in this series, or who may have done other things but don't fit. Inspired by the sad early death of Terry Sue Patt earlier this year. And now we have our second Grange Hill related death of 2015, with the passing of Maggie Riley at 79. Death Notice: http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/195704/riley She played Mrs McMahon to Bill Treacher's Mr McMahon. Here she is right at the start of Series 2, Episode 17: http://youtu.be/6Upl4Xma9IE
