    The Simpsons

    Marc Wilmore, who wrote 11 post-classic era episodes and was a producer on the show for 14 years, has died aged 57. Apparently from COVID. Follows David Richardson, mentioned elsewhere, who wrote season 5's "Homer Loves Flanders", who died earlier this month.

    Ian Holm

    I think that takes me to 98 hits overall as well.

    Twitter awash with rumours that former Cardiff City stalwart Peter Whittingham has died aged 35, apparently after falling down the stairs. Seems to have originated from this thread on the Cardiff City forum. Nothing official but would be up there as one of the weirdest hoaxes...

    Brittany Murphy

    TMZ are reporting that the actress Brittany Murphy has died of a cardiac arrest at 32. Nobody else is yet... Another MJ? Her role as Luanne in King of the Hill and Fry's girlfriend in the second Futurama movie were the parts I could match her name to... although I have seen Clueless and Just Married. She was pretty good in all of those, especially as Luanne.

    David Carradine

    Actor David Carradine, star of TV show Kung Fu and Bill in Kill Bill has been found hanged aged 72. Or FOX say it was "natural causes"...

    Derby Dead Pool 2018

    Haven't had any time to research this year, not that it made any difference when I did, so have just picked 20 people listed across the forums who sound vaguely ill but probably are fine.

    For reference: Gazza seems likely. Also found this one: From an American site. Most of the speculation, linked to the recent pictures, is that it's Slowhand himself...

    You could easily win it, your team has plenty of potential in a game like this.

    Derby Dead Pool 2017

    Following on from what OoO said on the previous page I've very hastily made a quick Google Doc anyone can edit, to log any fixes in one place for TMIB to use at his convenience. I'm on my phone so it'll probably balls up but this link should work... https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jYjmPnB08Ac8V76ftad_Up0mNk2ZiUJNeN1ftHdZcXU/edit?usp=drivesdk I've listed a few examples. If anyone wants to use it I suggest alphabetical order to make it easier to keep track. I'm sure someone can make it look far nicer. Feel free to use/ignore as you desire...

    Derby Dead Pool 2017

    Well I've sent mine in. I look forward as always to finding out who is actually completely fine and who managed to evade my search terms. And that leaving off a certain hit for someone worth potentially a few more points is probably a poor idea...

    Shuaibu Amodu, who managed Nigeria for six separate spells, has died aged 58. He died three days after Stephen Keshi, the man he replaced twice and was replaced by once.

    Derby Dead Pool 2016

    What? Diana Rots was a team a few years ago made up pretty much entirely of unique/obscure survivors from the previous year's top 10. Whole in Won appears to have a team entirely of survivors from Spade, DDT and Death Impends' teams from last year. Great work as always TMIB. One thing I saw, I think Kentucky Fried Genocide and Lullabye-bye of Broadway both meant Rosemary Harris the actress, not the author.

    Robert Banks Stewart and Maria Teresa de Filippis were both uniques last year.
