    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    How about Dabney ("9 to 5") Coleman? Just passes the fame test I reckon, and turns 92 in January. And if you buggers don't pick Roger Corman and Neil Harvey next year, you never will.

    Latest update from the only surviving cast member of DL87: "I'm far from being on my last legs" he says. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-66876167

    Mollie Sugden et al

    Boht has sailed ... Thought she went a couple of years ago, for some reason. I wonder who I was thinking of?

    Life In Prison

    Perhaps a brother or sister can do that ... I don't think it's so easy when it's someone you gave birth to. Both of her parents failed to appear at the sentencing, but until then they'd attended every day, at considerable expense - booking a hotel near the court.

    Life In Prison

    Obviously there will be a lot more discussion of Letby in the coming days but I wanted to mention a group of people who are very rarely considered in these cases. Every convicted murderer has a family. Given her young age I assume both her parents are still living, and she may well have a brother, or sister ... of course it's up to them how much contact they want to maintain from now on but I guess it's a parent's instinct never to completely abandon their child, no matter what they've done. If they do decide to cut off all contact I suppose she could be considered an increased suicide risk (although the prisons make that pretty difficult nowadays). It would be interesting to know if Huntley, convicted at a similar age, is still in contact with family members.

    Life In Prison

    Would be amazed if it's not a whole-life sentence tbh. Given that she stood in the witness box for days and told a pack of lies to the jury, there don't seem to be any mitigating circumstances whatsoever. Perhaps in time they'll give her a cell next to Beverley Allitt so they can discuss where it all went wrong.

    Dead Pop Stars

    You could add to the 'dead' list of Kate's associates the actor Gow Hunter (1960-2011), her co-star in the 'Hounds of Love' video.

    Didn't Celine Dion meet her future husband when she was only 12 or 13?

    38. Rolf Harris

    Death certificate shows he died on 10 May. Must have been one of the most-delayed deaths ever reported on this site, especially for one of the 50. Presumably cremation has taken place by now.

    38. Rolf Harris

    On the website, but nothing at all on the BBC news so far. All seems to be about Madeleine or the Cardiff riots. Very strange.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    On a whim, having never heard it, I bought the record of the 1984 West Indies touring squad 'West Indians are back in town' when I saw it in Our Price that year. The B side, 'Skipper Lloyd (Have Mercy)' is credited to 'lead vocal: Thelston Payne.' Finally, a record of mine that isn't on Youtube. I'm not going to remind myself how it went, though. Edit: so it is, not the flip, though.

    Reality TV

    I dare say there's a thread for this already, but Jerry is also the latest of several QI panellists who've failed to make it to Series Z. Off the top of my head Victoria Wood, Linda Smith, John Sessions, Sean Lock, Carrie Fisher and Terry Wogan are others. Not sure if Sean Hughes ever appeared on the show.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    Quite a big one this - Faith Thomas, who played one Test for Australia in 1958. Doesn't sound much of a career, but one of just four players (two men, two women) of indigenous background to wear the 'baggy green.' Most recent was Scott Boland who destroyed England in Oz about 16 months ago. https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/faith-thomas-the-first-indigenous-woman-to-play-cricket-for-australia-dies-aged-90-1369437
