    People I Was Surprised To Find Are Still Alive

    April Carter - highly active and well known in CND when she was just a teenager in the 50's is still with us. 82 atm - The Guardian/Observer will surely mark her passing as and when https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Carter

    Deathlisters who are dead

    Nowt to do with DL posting but several years ago a few people received messages from the "son" of Paul Harrison suggesting he was dead. There was a fulsome obituary printed in the Carlisle United fan magazine. V.long story short, the faked death eventually turned into sizable stories in the local and national press because other lies caught him out - link: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/jul/15/true-authors-interviewed-serial-killers-paul-harrison

    Barbara Bel Geddes

    Oh aye and...the final episode is called Conundrum and it's a two hander (Bobby and J.R.) around the pool at Southfork which considers how Bobby's life would have been with no J.R.. Actually a really good trick to present an alternative history and leave the audience questioning how much of what they thought was true had to be the way it was. Oddly, Shameless - sort of - pulled the same trick with their final episode with a kind of looking back and reckoning for Frank after he'd come out of jail (the biggest begging question in Shameless being how someone like him had stayed out of there the whole time)

    That nickname is down to Terry Wogan isn't it?

    Deathlisters who are dead

    The sum of evidence we have for this death is one post from Windsor stating he's dead. May be true, but hardly conclusive atm

    Bob Dylan

    Literally true, btw - he changed his name from Zimmerman to Dylan (not something many popstars with stage names have done) Elton Hercules John is another one who did it by deed poll. The Hercules part of the name being taken from the horse in the sit-com Steptoe and Son (seriously) I'm here off and on all afternoon -

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Indeed, was merely making the point she's a shoo-in for decent obits whatever the qualifying rules of a dead pool. BBC on it as well: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-53382561

    The Dead of 2020

    Thanks Doubtless it'll be national news before too long and the broadsheets will cover it. Only six of us in DDP had her, so it'll breath a little life into my ailing challenge
