    Tom Baker

    I hope Colin doesn't go too soon as in my view he and Tom appear to be easily the nicest of the living Doctors by a country mile.

    Tom Baker

    I wonder if he could end up being the longest lived of all the Doctor Who's? Obviously he has lived longer than Hartnell, Troughton and Pertwee (and Hurt if he counts) and some of his successors are not ageing that well.

    Suspect it won't be repeated until the 2030s at the earliest.

    Looks great for his age if that's a recent picture. I don't see him dying this year.

    Faye Dunaway

    Arguably the most famous Hollywood actress in the Seventies and an Oscar winner turns 80. I'd say a thread is overdue.

    Faye Dunaway

    60s and 70s Hollywood star and Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway is 80 today. The star of The Thomas Crown Affair, Bonnie & Clyde, The Towering Inferno and Network has no thread so time to rectify that.

    As a postscript, there's also nine Australian Test cricketers from the 1950s still alive: Gordon Rorke, Keith Slater, Bobby Simpson, Ian Meckiff, Gavin Stevens, John Rutherford, Alan Davidson, Neil Harvey and Ken Archer. Simpson, Davidson and Harvey are the biggest names on that list.

    Ironically he's one of the few who has reached old age.

    UK Singles Chart

    Quite a shocking list considering it's a team of people who were professional athletes. I appreciate the heading-induced dementia has been a factor in several cases but only 2 out of 14 making it to 80 is a terrible stat.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    According to Cricinfo, as well as MJK Smith and Jim Parks, there's also Dick Richardson, Ken Taylor and Harold Rhodes who all played Test cricket for England in the 1950s but are not as well known as they only played 6 Tests between them. So it appears nine 1950s England Test cricketers are still batting. Not quite enough for a full team but close.

    That makes Neil Harvey as the last survivor of that historic Test match.

    Former England captain MJK Smith debuted in 1958 and is still alive aged 87. He's also Seb Coe's father in law.

    Male cricketers don't have especially great longevity. Not as bad as footballers but still nowhere near as good as tennis players.

    Mitt Romney

    He did have Prostate cancer in 2017 but appears to have recovered fairly well. His parents lived to 89 and 88 so decent genes. I don't expect him to go for a while and hopefully he'll easily see off Trump.

    As an aside, what an amazing head of hair she has.
