  1. Ideas And Possibilities For 2018

    I think Ray Galton could make a good pick for next year. Wrote jointly with Alan Simpson for 2 huge comedy series - Hancock Half Hour and of course Steptoe and Son. He'll be 88 next year. Alan Simpson died earlier this year in February...
  2. Thoughts On The 2017 List

    For some reason I don't think Leslie will go this year. His continued longevity seems to indicate he's a fighter. Too big a miss to take off next year though. I cannot believe that Billy Graham is still here. I did think he would have gone in 2016 (and didn't one of his relatives say that last year was his last birthday or something?) but when he made 2017 I thought he would be one of the first 'hits' of the year not making it to April. But here we are. 14 hits will be broken this year though - I don't doubt that..
  3. 44. Liz Dawn

    RIP. So...Deirdre Barlow in 2015, Hilda Ogden in 2016, Vera Duckworth in 2017... Ken Barlow for 2018..?
  4. 12. Tony Booth

    Crazy times the death list is going through...
  5. 20. Jake Lamotta

    RIP to a great boxer. Well at least there is another hit further up the list. Billy Graham next..
  6. 43. Glen Campbell

    RIP to a country legend. That music video was very sad as well. At least he isn't suffering anymore.
  7. 6. Prince Phillip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Watching that video clip of the 75th Oscars I can't believe that Luise Rainer lasted another 11 years+!
  8. Robert Hardy

    I actually saw an episode of an old anthology type horror show on Amazon Prime called 'The Veil' about 2 weeks ago - it was one of those old shows (1958) starring and introduced by Boris Karloff. He was in the first episode with Karloff and another death list alumni Patrick Macnee. I didn't really recognise him as I'd only seen in him stuff from the late 70s onwards. I did recognise his voice and saw his credit on IMDB! Just shows how long he has been acting..From acting with Boris Karloff to Harry Potter!
  9. Robert Hardy

    Already put it in 2017 deaths - didn't see he had his own thread! RIP to a good actor that had a huge variety of roles over his very long career..
  10. The Dead Of 2017

    BBC are incorrectly quoting his age as 85 though for some reason..
  11. The Dead Of 2017

    Robert Hardy dead….
  12. British Science Fiction Series

    RIP Deborah. A good companion sometimes underrated by fans. A pity a lot of her episodes are missing but glad that 9 did turn up in 2013 - at least she saw her dad again acting alongside her in The Web Of Fear. Hopefully more of her stories will show up soon.. Also another guest star now gone from Rising Damp... BTW it's been a while since a Doctor Who companion has died hasn't it? There was that period where Elizabeth Sladen, Nicholas Courtney, Caroline John and Mary Tamm died (2011-2012?) but none since.
  13. Ideas And Possibilities For 2018

    What about James Lovelock? Scientist, environmentalist and futurist who came up with the 'Gaia hypothesis'. Will be 99 next year (DOB 26 July 1919) and looks like a typical Deathlist candidate probably coming in under the top 40 mark. Also Ian Holm and Joss Ackland would be good picks IMO.
  14. 9. Stan Lee

    Very sad news. Stan must be devastated losing his soul mate - they've been married since 1947 (!).
  15. The 8th death of 2017

    Billy Graham - there are rumours around that hes a 'bit frail'..
