    4. Vera Lynn

    RIP to a legend. Just worked out that she was older then Kirk Douglas when she died at 103 years, 2 months and 29 days compared to a mere 103 years, 1 month and 29 days for Kirk. If I’m not mistaken she was probably the last surviving interviewee on The World At War series. Also, apart from her importance in WW2, will be remembered for the ending of Dr Stangelove when the bomb goes off..

    Completely ridiculous decision by HBO. What a deranged year 2020 is turning out to be..

    The 4th death of 2020

    After only just voting for De Cuellar as the third death only an hour ago whilst Kirk was breathing his last I now ( probably foolishly) pick him once again as the 4th death...

    RIP Kirk/Spartacus! 18 appearances on the Deathlist as well - can't see that ever being repeated!

    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2020 List

    Only 9 on this list to go this year?! I can see 14 easily. Which ones do you think are definately doomed in 2020 then?

    How many hits this year?

    Thankee-sai I seriously think this year will be big. Quite a few from last year who I thought were definately not going to see 2020, let alone 2021 - plus as its a leap year there is an extra day which must mean something or other. plus any list with someone called Genesis P-Orridge on it must be good..

    How many hits this year?

    22 - an incredible amount of frail people on this list. At least I didn't have to pick 23 like last year!

    Tony Britton

    Yes - he is doing very well to get as far as he has. Some people thought that picture of him in the wheelchair signalled the end whereas others thought he looked OK (and wasn't that from late 2016?!) One of the reasons I mentioned Geoffrey is his last acting credit is Paddington from 2014 - he was working very steadily until then although maybe he just had enough and wasn't about to give up on life! I need to to be watching more of these documentaries for research purposes! Wasn't that where both the imminent fate of Jim Bowen and Leslie Grantham was predicted?

    Tony Britton

    Yep - he clearly did not. I always tend to pick very old choices for candidates as I like to play it 'safe' and think being in your 90s is just not tragic like when, say someone a lot younger dies like Leah. I think Tony's departure has made a perfect spot for Lesley Phillips to come back next year as he is also getting on (and was a surprise omission for the committee in 2019) - I don't think he has long left but people on here thought he would have gone years ago already! Or maybe the last of the sitcom giants of the 1970/1980s who is in his 90s - Geoffrey Palmer..

    Tony Britton

    I think it was me who was talking about Tony Britton before most and mentioning him as a candidate for the Deathlist but anyway... One of the main reasons I picked him was because I'd seen a few pictures of him over the last few years starting with being at Dinah Sheridan's memorial service and him looking frail (and then remembering I'd last seen him act about 22 years previously!) RIP to a very good character/comedy actor who was probably the last of his generation to star in 2 1970s/1980s comedies - Robins Nest and, of course Don't Wait Up (where Nigel Havers plays himself as usual!). Also he was in a good amount of other stuff including The Day Of The Jackal. And not forgetting he's one of the last British acting talents who was also a Second World War veteran. 95 is a very good age to reach but I was thinking he'd get to next year as the months went by. Don't Wait Up started 36(!) years ago when he was supposed to be a semi-retired doctor even then!
