    Foreign Personalities, From Stage, Screen, Politics And Life

    I think there are a few folk missing from it. Vera Alentova and Vladimir Menshov seem to missing too and the likely would get obits. Edit - I am mistaken , they got the People's Artist of Russia Award which came later.

    I can't be the only one to really dislike that film can I?

    How DLy Are They Anyway?

    I hadn't heard of Edrich and I am British but I still think he's deathlisty because I believe the committee are into their cricket so I will always expect old cricketers to have a place on DL. I hadn't heard of Trebek either.

    How DLy Are They Anyway?

    I just had to look up Tom Smith because I have never heard of him and this phrase was one of the suggestions 'tom smith gas monkey garage death' which intrigued me. It's not DLs Tom Smith though but some dead biker.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    True. Though a colleague of mine did end calling a Mr Bash, Mr Bishop.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Yes he is, in the Persuaders. I work with someone called Ben Sinclair and for the first few months I kept calling him Brett. Not as bad as the time I had to call a customer called Mr Bates and started the call with 'May I speak to Mr Norman please?'

    Alan Alda

    Alan sounds a bit doddery here, still has all his marbles though. Mike and Loretta sound great though. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-mash-gang-confined-to-quarters/id1400082430?i=1000477252528 Jamie Farr sounds good here too, though he does make a few references to his age and mortality. https://mashmatterspodcast.com/ep40/

    They were both good looking. I love Tara's wardrobe more than Emma's though.

    Linda Thorson is 73 today. I thought she was older actually.

    UK Singles Chart

    I used to work with Lee twenty years ago. She is alive and well and living in Kent. She goes by her married name now which isn't any of those above. I will DM you that if interested.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    I enjoyed it a lot, it's very likeable. I think Charlotte Ritchie is a great actress, but I find Katy Wix a bit tiresome, thankfully as it's an ensemble piece so it doesn't matter too much.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Yes it was. I like that too. I love Rosemary Nichol's wardrobe. My favourites are Randall and Hopkirk [deceased] and Man in Suitcase which goes without saying really.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Was anyone else a fan of last year's BBC comedy series Ghosts? I enjoyed it despite some ropey acting and predictable humour. It's worth checking out if you want something a bit daft and not too taxing. I was looking forward to the second series but I imagine it's been delayed. I am currently re-watching The Prisoner. It's not my favourite ITC series, in fact in probably just scrapes into the top 5 but it seems kind of apt viewing.

    Deathlist Dreaming

    At least I seem to have stopped dreaming about excrement.

    Deathlist Dreaming

    60s singers seem to be my new dream theme. Last night I dreamt Tom Jones recorded a new version of 'They're Coming to Take me Away [ha,ha]' with Chris Barrie in Gordon Brittas mode.

    Songwriters

    We had a teacher who looked a lot like Rolf Harris, his nickname was Didge, after didgeridoo. I often wonder of he still does.

    I've been saying that for years.

    50/50 Reboot

    Kellye Nakahara was non qualifying and she turned out to be too old, though I didn't know it at the time.

    Theatre

    One of a handful of actors who was in both the film and tv versions of MASH , of whom only Gary Burghoff is still alive I believe.

    The World of the Snowflake

    Maybe Walliams has realised how shoddy his performance was especially in the later series. How he managed to get a drama degree I will never I know.

    Deathlist Dreaming

    Dreamt that I was watching tv and they were showing lots of archive footage of The Rolling Stones and I was expecting it to be announced that one of them had died but it turned out to be a debate on whether Mick Jagger was sexy or not.
