    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2020 List

    Glad to see Doctor Who gets one place on the 2020 list and wrestling none. I could argue that Doctor Who should claim Prince Philip because of The Crown.

    Inverse Dead Pool 2020

    I admire your optimism but I think 17 points is more than Drol finished with at the end of 2019 However a number of players have commented how difficult it was to take decisions once the first few names are down

    Radio 4

    I have previously stated that I believe Radio 4 to be the natural station of the Deathlist and when I heard The Last Word broadcast on 26 October two of their interviewees were both on the Deathlist: Henry Kissinger and James Randi. Henry sounded weak but coherent and James sounded quite chirpy. However as both were discussing the loss of a contempary too chirpy should not really be an option. So to start off this discussion of all things Radio 4 I have a list of all the still living presenters of the Today programme. Barry Norman (1933 - Desmond Lynam (1942 Gillian Reynolds (1935- Nigel Rees (1944- Libby Purves (1950– Jenni Murray (1950– Sue MacGregor (1941– Peter Hobday (1937– Anna Ford (1943 - Edward Stourton (1957- Carolyn Quinn (19?? - John Humphries (1943- James Naughtie (1951- Sarah Montague (1966- Evan Davies (1962- Justin Webb (1961- Barry Norman must be a consideration over the coming years

    Statistics

    I didn't know where to post this so I have created a new thread. If a mod thinks it is already covered please move it. I was thinking about who are the general Deathlist picks so as a starting point I took my 1000 name longlist and split people up into broad categories. Almost 3/4 of the list is taken up with just 5 categories 254 - Actors 192 - Music Industry 120 - Writers 103 - Politicians 69 - Sport Where the is ambiguity I have used a judgement rather than record people twice. I don't know if this says more about me or whether peoples longlists are similar. I suppose the ultimate long list is the DDP master list. Because this is my longlist it doesn't contain the 450 names on my shortlist who are probably more likely to go.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    I have got 27 uniques across two of my teams. One children's author managed to sneak by the Children',s authors theme team David McKee of Mr Benn, King Rollo & Elmer fame all the other uniques in my writers theme team do other stuff. Although Penelope Lively does both. Hoping for a better year for Unusual Suspects

    If the character of Adric is meant to be a smug irritating little shit then Matthew played him to perfection.

    Doctor Who

    The Director needs to realise No Oxygen = No Fire and there were fucking trees in the landscape. I didn't understand why they all needed to go on the rescue mission or how the old man actually got outside in the first place. But the threat level was there and JW seems to have calmed down a tad since last series.
