    The Dead of 2019

    Deborah Orr's death completely passed me by. I knew she was ill, didn't realise she had died.

    Ask A Deathlister

    While not quite as old, America actor Victor Kilian was beaten to death in his home by burglars. In a morbid coincidence one of his co-stars in his last television outing was another elderly actor , Charles Wagenheim who was also beaten to death in his home. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Kilian Then there is Erich Loest, German writer who committed suicide by defenestration aged 87 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_Loest This guy was another who jumped to his death, aged 91 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirko_Ellis

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    I know the feeling. The morning after I sent mine in I remembered two people I'd meant to include, though one of those was a revenge pick.

    Strictly Come Dancing

    Was convinced Rhodes had been in a pointless Celebrities episode but it seems not. I wonder who I was thinking of.
  10. Handrejka


    I had an interesting film in mind but then John McEnery died so I empathise.
  11. I keep thinking about Norman Shilcock, who was my old RE teacher, and wonder if he merits a thread?

    People I Was Surprised To Find Are Still Alive

    Was reading about Sandy Fawkes recently and was surprised to hear her ex-husband Wally Fawkes aka Trog is still alive.

    Song Shout-outs

    I still want to know what DDT's songs mentioning horses was all about.

    She was also on Pointless Celebrities.

    The World of the Snowflake

    Same here. I have cousins who are mixed race and they and their black relatives certainly didn't look like golliwogs. I was quite taken aback when I realised. As to Kinnock's statements there are no blue folk, that's not quite true. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Fugates

    Images that have been burned into your mind

    We had that on but I wasn't watching, was playing with my Sindy dolls, but I remember the concern in my mum's voice as she said 'something's wrong' and later she told me that he'd died. I know the footage has resurfaced but I don't want to see it. For me it would be seeing a dead new forest pony on holiday there when I was nine. I was a typical horse mad girl at that age and it upset me deeply. I can still see it clearly. Other things, a bird eating the remains of its newly deceased mate, which I think is the reason birds repulse me now, used to quite like them before that. When I was on my year abroad there was a fire in the hostel and while nobody was badly hurt, two students lost all their belongings, their sobs at this realisation were heart-breaking. And on a different note, the first time I ever knowingly saw a transvestite.

    Same. I actually thought he'd died some time ago.

    @theoldlady is bolded. Is there anything we should know?

    Holiday Thread

    I did, but I'm not sure I'd relish a return visit to Rome. It's nice, but a bit crowded and expensive, though I have to say the people were actually very nice .

    Holiday Thread

    Just got back from a few days in Rome. I'm dreading getting on the scales as the hotel breakfasts were delicious.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Sylvia Plath's son? He was Ted Hughes' son too of course. I almost forgot that.
  23. What did I sound like?

    1. Lord Fellatio Nelson

      Lord Fellatio Nelson

      Without an accent, a bit like the voice over for Master Chef.

      I suspect, however, you have a slight Scouse twang to your voice!! :D

    2. Handrejka


      Well Scousers wouldn't think so, but it's definitely there when I recite the days of the week. It's not possible for me to say Tuesday without giving away my origins. Most of the time it's just generic northern.

    Carry On Dying

    It was an odd episode all round I thought. Have Tony Hawkes and Paul Merton fallen out, they seems oddly snappy with each other. I know that's part of the game but it didn't seem like it was good humoured the way in normally does.

    Carry On Dying

    She was also in The Smashing Bird I used to know with the recently deceased Sheila Steafel.
