    There are quite a few hacks out there not much longer for this world, many still writing regularly. Sir Peregrine Worsthorne (b. 1923) former editor of the Sunday Telegraph, still contributes the odd column here and there to various publications I believe. US film critic Roger Ebert (b. 1942) famed for his thumbs/up down criteria along with the late Gene Siskel, has had extensive treatment for thyroid cancer over the past few years including large sections of his jaw removed can now no longer speak as a result, though he continues to write regular film reviews and is a prolific Tweeter. Has said he will not undergo any further treatment if the cancer comes back, definitely one to bear in mind for the 2012 list I reckon. Plenty of potential for puns too - "Ebert Gets Two Thumbs Down" "Last Picture Show For Ebert" "Movie Fades to Black" "Roger, Over and Out" or how about "Hopefully Not A Thumbs Down at The Pearly Gates" deserving of his own thread really. Derek Jameson (b. 1929), former Mirror editor went on to become Radio 2 DJ and prolific TV presenter and personality, spotted recently on BBC2's The Young Ones (no, not that one). That's just for starters really, must be many others I haven't thought of, what do people think?

    Are You Being Served?

    Just been watching it of late, does still amuse. I’m pleased the ‘woke’ army haven’t yet had it booted off the schedules, I can just picture them getting all indignant on Twitter

    One of the comedy greats. Steve Martin did his best films with him I reckon

    Katie Hopkins

    She’s a tedious talentless troll who is fast running out of well paid options

    Prunella to sail off into the sunset

    50. Peter Sutcliffe

    Ironic when you consider Charlie has always been like the ‘boring one’ of the Stones; been married to the same woman for over fifty years and always turned groupies down...

    Giving birth is no guarantee a mother will be a good parent. Rose West, Tracey Connolly for instance? Some parents should have been sterilised before they had the chance to procreate - not my words, but those of my parents, who were both social workers

    Boris Johnson

    The fact that he still insists on clinging on despite the events of the past several days I’d say was a strong indicator of masochistic tendencies

    Marianne Faithfull

    It’s joined to her right arm

    50. Peter Sutcliffe

    Story is over a month old, still bodes well for another hit this year. Could even be #9

    The 9th Death of 2020

    Could be a pivotal moment in this years election. I went for Sutcliffe

    The 8th Death of 2020

    Vera, toss up between Covid hitting her old folks home or nature taking its course, bout 50/50 I’d say

    20. Honor Blackman

    I take nothing for granted, even with the current predicament. We could still see a dry spell lasting six months.

    20. Honor Blackman

    Blimey 7 hits within 4 months already, and as yet none apparently attributed to Covid-19...
  21. JR976evil

    The 7th Death of 2020

    6 already inside 3 months and not yet one attributable to corona - it could be a very good year...

    The 7th Death of 2020

    Gone for Vera

    The 5th Death of 2020

    Well that would be fitting, with four already inside 2 months we’re on fire! Gone for Trebek myself
