    Don't worry, you'll be out of the Cup in a few weeks time so you can start posting Cup possibilities to help folk out whenever you want. (Hey, twas an open goal...)

    Tom Lehrer

    We Will All Go Together is perhaps a bit cliched to post (although I do love it), so here's his other great. Who hasn't got funny looks from passersby when inadvertently singing it in public? Needless to say, legend who will one day be a DL hit presumably, but hopefully not anytime soon.

    That's the best episode of The Prisoner, by far. Almost McGoohan as Columbo, nemesis of wrong doers.

    Jimmy Greaves

    Could be worse in a way. He's in Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, one of those in the news for being inundated with coronavirus cases. How ill do you need to be to be given a hospital bed at a coronavirus hit hospital right now without the virus? Very ill indeed, I'd guess.

    The 2020 Deathlist Cup

    Underlying issues plus coronavirus plus ventilator. But he was one of the first names on the team because I was all "He's going to be on every team and the fuck am I giving Sir Creep a 3 point lead!" Accidentally successful defence!

    Political Frailty

    Peter Temple Morris, Tory MP for Leominster for 27 years who died in 2018 btw. They were right next to each other on the living MPs list a few years back hence my confusion.

    Political Frailty

    I thought he died a year or two ago, and now I must have confused him for another Tory MP born in the late 30s. Anyhow, the whole duck island was one of the notorious bits of the expenses scandal, but just look how happy that duck looked after some taxpayer funded Location Location Location work:

    Yes, dropping Greaves (and maybe Gorbachev in the circumstances) were the two oddest dropping decisions they made.

birth dates are yet to show up. Although with several of those I've made guesses based on school dates or debuts, hence (c.) notes for circa.

    British Science Fiction Series

    Allegedly played a huge role in this post. As you can see from the imdb date change, further research from Dr Who fans (a group as interested in research as deadpoolers) has discovered Joan Ellacott actually died in 2007.

    Boris Johnson

    Well in the case of Hugh Gaitskell, he was in hospital for 2 weeks but only took very badly ill towards the end. In fact, the news of his death came through while the BBC news was live on air with Robert Dougall so he continued reading the original story on the Labour leader and finished "And since we've come on air, news has reached us that Mr Gaitskell has died". For UK party leaders, John Smith died since then but that was more of a surprise, despite his previous heart problems. Despite being far too young to know who he was at the time, I remember that happening, because so many adults around me were blatantly gutted by that one, including Mum who still compares Blair unfavourably to Smith! Oh and in Scotland we had Donald Dewar dying as First Minister too, which was treated as a shock by the media but folk close to Dewar had sort of intimated he was in a bad way. About six months before he died, he visited my school, but only S4 and above were allowed to attend his talk. I complained about this but got told I could go to the next one. As Dewar died, they replaced him for the next talk with Michael Martin, then Commons Speaker.

    The 2020 Deathlist Cup

    Update on the popular Hanbury Tennison (Paywalled in the Spectator): It then goes onto detail the family plans to celebrate his birthday in 5 weeks, and events for their dad further this summer...
  22. Ah, McGoohan's class. He shows up a lot! That funeral director would have got away with it too if he hadn't gone for the classic "I did it but you can't prove it" gambit. I think my favourite is Jackie Cooper as the corrupt politician because Columbo's "got you now" moment at the end is so great. (The one where he took the bullet from the fake assassination attempt out of the wall hours earlier...)
  23. Have you seen this one, Willz? I saw it on Freeview the other week. It's hilarious. Revill plays a badly accented Irish poet who is secretly a member of the IRA. He kills the gun smuggler who tried to get more money out of him, and then left his traditional home brand whisky as a calling card. It takes Columbo the standard 90 minutes to solve the case, presumably as an excuse to use the department bar tab in tailing the whisky swilling fake Irishman in the pub...

    Boris Johnson

    He - Nott - actually showed up on TV again last year, looking quite healthy for his age. Especially next to some contemporaries like Nigel Lawson and Roy Hattersley who both looked like a sneeze would finish them off.

    John Nott is still alive too, recently turned 88.
