    British Science Fiction Series

    Very sad to hear this news, I missed the Pointless Celebrities episode he was on, so didn't realise till I read his obit that he'd had his legs amputated. Blake's 7 was always must watch viewing at Squonk Towers. I might have to dust the DVDs off and re-live a bit of my younger days. Farewell Avon, and thanks for many happy hours glued to the TV.

    Guess The Song

    Having considered it carefully, with the Freudian possibility of sexual innuendo (lock and key) I came to the conclusion: she was looking for a word that rhymed with 'me'.

    I came on here expecting a new round with Doris Day taking a sentimental journey...am I missing something, or did none of us pick her in the current round???

    How very dare you...I'll have you know when I stole Carl Reiner I was not naked, I was wearing my least smeggy pjs, the ones with only three holes in each armpit and only two custard stains down the front.

    Yes, I don't know where Irene came from...apart from the fact it's a name that sounds appropriate for a 97 year old! Thanks for spotting. To confirm my (corrected) list.... 1920: John Paul Stevens, Norma Barzman 1921: Al Jaffee, Iris Apfel 1922: Carl Reiner, Beverly Pepper 1923: Murray Walker, Gloria Henry 1924: Tony Britton, Carole Cook 1925: Baron Christopher, Honor Blackman 1926: Stanley Baxter, Cloris Leachman 1927: Harry Belafonte, Estelle Parsons 1928: Joss Ackland, Jean Ann Kennedy 1929: Max von Sydow, Lady Pamela Hicks

    The 2019 Deathlist Cup

    Been away for a few days but wasn't agitating to see how I was doing given my miserable result! Congrats to Spade and I hope you go on to win, so I can say I was beaten by the best!

    D'oh, took my eye off the ball there....I'd have entered the same team again, but missed this round, and Andre Previn would have been a hit. Still, you snooze, you lose.....

    The 2019 Deathlist Cup

    Please....look at my medic-alert bracelet......(Homie the Clown , classic episode, great choice!). Well, it was fun whilst it lasted, but safe to say I'm not bothering to prep a March team, even though we're not half way through the month yet.
