    Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I worked in a hospital for years and this is quite common. Long family vigil for days & the minute they nip out for a coffee the patient dies. Some of the nurses would even suggest the family went out for a bit of fresh air, believing that the patient was just hanging on until they were on their own. My Dad did something similar. It was the first time we’d persuaded mum to leave his beside in 48 hours and my sister wouldn’t have coped if he’d died while she was in the room on her own. In the end it was just him and me. I think he knew I’d be the one who would cope the best.

    Captain Tom Moore

    Up until recently I worked in the emergency department of the hospital he has been admitted to. I’m surprised he went to that particular hospital given where he lives and there is a bigger, possibly better equipped hospital only slightly further away. A lot of it depends on where the ambulance has been sent from tho & how close they are to clocking off!

    Biggest Miss of 2021

    And surely you won’t know who the biggest miss is until the end of the year anyway. Going to be a long year if some tit pops up on here and claims every remotely famous death is the biggest miss.

    The Archers

    Listening to tonights episode and it features both Peggy (June Spencer, 101) and Jim Lloyd (John Rowe, who turns 80 years old tomorrow) Both sound like they’ll be around for a few years yet

    The Archers

    Don’t remember hearing anything from Pat since last Christmas. Some of the other older cast members who I don’t think have featured for a while are Jim, Leonard, Christine and Bert (Bert & Christine haven’t been regulars for a few years but usually get rolled out at Christmas) Most episodes only feature four actors instead of the previous six, so there are loads of cast members who haven’t been heard from for months.

    The Archers

    I’m pretty sure Adam was on back in the early days of the monologue episodes, when the cast were recording from home, not heard from him for a while tho. Clarrie was on end of last week, first time she’s featured for months. Now they’ve gone down to 4 episodes a week I don’t suppose they need as many actors.

    The 1st Death of 2018

    So, in previous years, how long before the first hit occurred? Wondering what the shortest and longest wait has been. I voted for Clive James.
